What is abdominoplasty in Tunisia?

Abdominoplasty in Tunisia is plastic and reconstructive surgery of the abdomen. It consists firstly of reducing sagging skin and the remaining fatty deposits on the stomach. Next, the abdominal muscles are tightened to restore a flat stomach and firm up the figure.

This plastic and aesthetic surgery will also allow abdominal reconstruction. It firms and tightens the straight muscles of the abdominal wall to tighten the skin of the abdomen. The end result is a firm, toned abdomen. The patient will obtain a flat abdomen.

There are two common types of tummy tuck performed in Tunisia:

  • The first is full abdominoplasty: this is the most common technique and the most appropriate for removing a large amount of excess skin and fat. The surgery is performed at the navel to free the skin, re-draping it and pulling it downwards. This is the best technique for tightening the abdominal muscles along their entire length.
  • Mini abdominoplasty: this is an effective technique for repairing a small amount of sagging skin at the bottom of the abdomen or below the navel. The operation involves removing the fat and skin in the pubic area. This may be followed by liposuction to perfect the results.

Abdominoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. In Tunisia, it is performed according to the rules of the art, by experienced plastic surgeons, and promises 99% satisfactory results.

What is the profile of the ideal candidate for this operation?

Abdominoplasty is aimed at people who want to refine their figure. It specifically targets stubborn fatty deposits and small imperfections that neither sport nor diet have been able to eliminate. The ideal candidate for this type of reconstructive surgery is :

  • Someone who has lost a significant amount of belly fat and has excess skin that has slackened as a result of this weight loss.
  • A man who is preparing to obtain the famous “chocolate bars”.
  • Patients whose tummy has become slack after several pregnancies and who wish to regain firm, toned medial muscles.

However, abdominoplasty is not recommended for people who are overweight or obese. Patients are advised to lose weight before considering an abdominoplasty. In addition, patients must have at least a BMI<30 and have a stable weight.

How is abdominoplasty carried out in Tunisia?

Abdominoplasty in Tunisia is a surgical procedure that requires an operation in the operating theatre. It is performed by a plastic surgeon and his team on an operating table under general anaesthetic. The procedure is divided into three stages:


The first stage of your tummy tuck in Tunisia consists of contacting the travel agency that will prepare your medical stay in Tunisia. The agency will be responsible for putting you in contact with the surgeon and the entire medical team, as well as dealing with all the administrative or specific formalities required for your stay.

The first consultation

Your first appointment with the cosmetic surgeon consists of identifying several points:

  • Your general state of health: the surgeon may request a check-up and clinical examination.
  • The type of abdominoplasty to be performed, depending on your morphology and the condition of your abdominal belt.
  • The preparations required for an effective and successful operation. It will be recommended that you stop taking any medical treatments, hallucinogenic substances or nicotine. A diet may also be prescribed.

This initial consultation can be carried out online for patients abroad.

The second consultation

This second consultation is carried out on site with the surgical team. This is your appointment with the anaesthetist and the surgeon to go over the final details of the operation. You will also be briefed on the surgical procedure.

The day of the operation

The day before the operation, you will be taken care of by the medical team for full preparation. You must fast during the operation and you must have taken an antiseptic shower before entering the operating theatre. On the operating table, you will receive the first doses of anaesthetic and when the substance takes effect, you will be put to sleep.

Abdominal surgery lasts 1 to 2 hours, depending on the case. The hospital stay is 2 to 3 days. Abdominoplasty may involve :

  • Liposuction of belly fat if it is too thick. The surgeon will make an incision below the navel to ensure that the scar is not too visible. The surgeon then removes the excess fat and adipose tissue using fine cannulas.
  • Once the excess fat has been removed, the surgeon moves on to the actual repair operation. Depending on the technique chosen (full abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty), the surgeon will make an incision :
  • Below the navel, close to the bikini line for a mini-abdominoplasty
  • Over the navel, by moving it, for a full abdominoplasty.

The size of the incision varies according to the amount of fat to be removed.

  • Once the incision has been made, the skin and fat are detached from the abdominal muscles. The muscles that have been stretched are tightened. If, during the removal of the skin, there is any alteration to the abdominal wall, the surgeon will ensure that this is corrected before continuing with the surgery.
  • Next, the surgeon removes the skin tissue. The skin is pulled down to tighten and re-drape it. This technique removes the excess skin.
  • Once the skin has been tightened, the navel is put back in place. It is possible to use an umbilical transposition, i.e. to place the navel on the tightened skin.
  • Dissolvable sutures are used to close the incision. Depending on the case, the plastic surgeon may need to perform an abdominal lift.

After the operation

Aftercosmetic surgery, you will need to rest for a few hours and stay overnight at the clinic under medical supervision. It is important to recover well to avoid the risk of tears and other complications. When the anaesthetic begins to wear off, you will need to take painkillers. The wound is also treated with anti-infectives and wound healing agents.

The dressing is renewed every 2 to 3 days postoperatively. Sutures will be removed after 10 days if they do not reabsorb on their own. The practising surgeon may place drains to evacuate post-operative fluids and to help healing.

Precautions to take after abdominoplasty in Tunisia

To ensure that your abdominoplasty in Tunisia is a success, you should take a few precautions after the operation:

  • Avoid taking a bath that is too hot or prolonged for about 3 weeks. Swimming is also not recommended during this period. Showers should not be too long. They can be taken 4 to 5 days after the operation.
  • Wear a corset or girdle for a few days after surgery. The special corset provides extra support and helps to further refine the figure. It takes 2 to 3 months post-operatively to wear this corset. A check-up with your surgeon will determine whether you should keep it on longer or remove it.
  • Sleep in positions that do not strain the abdominal muscles. Make sure they do not stretch during sleep. We recommend that you sleep on your back with your legs bent. Put pillows on your knees.
  • Avoid sport and intense physical activity for at least 1 month. Resuming sport is recommended 3 months after abdominoplasty.
  • Monitor your diet to avoid weight gain and the accumulation of new fat on the stomach. A healthy, balanced diet is essential. A healthy lifestyle is also advisable (stop smoking, good quality sleep, etc.).
