- Greater confidence in your appearance
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and classed as inpatient surgery, creating the need for far less surgery and recovery time as compared to the full tummy tuck. The length of surgery will vary depending on the patient’s needs, but a rough time frame of two to three hours applies to most cases.
You will be able to return to work quickly but should avoid strenuous activity for roughly a month. Results will be evident immediately, improving in the months that follow as well.
How it Works
An assessment is the first step to make sure the chosen procedure is suitable for your needs.
A discussion with Dr Arianayagam will take place to confirm your current health, as well as any medications and past medical treatments you have had.
A second consultation a week or two later will be booked in to give you time to think about your options and any questions you may have. You will also be able to speak to previous patients about their experience with PCLS to help make your final decision.
The procedure will take place under general anaesthesia at Baringa Private Hospital. Incisions will be made along your lower abdomen after which the removal of excess skin will take place along with the tightening of underlying tissues.
The incision will be closed and bandaged, and the recovery process will begin. You may experience a little discomfort and swelling, along with drains to ensure the removal of excess body fluid.

There is some variance in these two procedures and how elastic your skin is and the level of excess fat play a part. The male mini-tummy tuck is more suited to those in need of a removal of small amounts of excess skin. The choice of which procedure is more effective essentially comes down to your specific situation.
This procedure will only require one day with a few weeks off work, though the healing process will vary with each patient and is also dependent on the size of the procedure.
