Tummy Tuck Sydney

About the treatment

As we age, the skin around the abdomen loses elasticity, and the underlying muscles become looser and weaker. Fat distribution tends to increase, often forming a stubborn bulge around the lower stomach. The result is a significant loss of shape that’s almost impossible to shift solely with exercise or diet. This issue may be exacerbated by pregnancy or extreme weight loss, as the abdominal walls tend to separate in these cases. The tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, aims to correct these concerns. 

Ready to redefine your waistline and restore shape to your figure? Dr Liew can help through his highly developed techniques and an advanced aesthetic vision!


A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure designed to reshape the body’s midsection by removing excess fat and skin from the abdominal area. 

This treatment serves to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that appear after extreme weight loss or pregnancy and do not respond adequately to exercise or diet. The surgery also reduces the visibility of stretch marks, providing a smoother and firmer contour of the abdomen. 

While it is not an alternative to a healthy lifestyle, the procedure is ideal for those who are have reached a healthy and steady weight range but are struggling to shift stubborn areas of flabby excess skin. The tummy tuck tightens the abdominal wall muscles and re-contours the torso for a slimmer, more attractive appearance.


A tummy tuck boasts a range of both functional and cosmetic benefits. A tummy tuck can be highly rewarding when performed by an expert and highly practised plastic surgeon. 

Cosmetic benefits may include:

  • Slimmer and smoother form achieved through excess fat removal.
  • Firmer, toned and taut contour by tightening the abdominal muscles.
  • Redefined the torso and restores shape to the overall figure.
  • Reduced feelings of heaviness, improved confidence and broader clothing options 

Functional benefits may include:

  • Improve urinary incontinence by using soft tissue to create a slight bladder obstruction near the pelvic area.
  • Improve posture by removing excess weight from the body.
  • Correct or relieve structural defects of the abdomen.
  • Treat a ventral hernia.
  • Reduce chronic dermatitis, skin infection and hygiene issues caused by skin folds and large pockets of fat.
  • Reduce difficulty in walking.



Results of a tummy tuck procedure are visible immediately after the surgery. However, it may take from two to three months for swelling to subside and results to settle. Excess skin will be removed, the abdominal wall will be tightened, and visibility of stretch marks will be reduced. If liposuction is combined with treatment, the abdomen will be flatter, and the midsection will be more proportioned to your overall figure.

  • Generally long-lasting, so long as there are no significant weight fluctuations after the procedure.

What to expect from Abdominoplasty

The procedure varies amongst patients depending on their specific needs and aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, Dr Liew will examine the abdominal area to determine the best, most suitable approach to treatment.

He takes the time to understand your concerns before creating a procedural plan tailored to your body type and fundamental needs. Dr Liew may suggest combining your surgery with liposuction for a more comprehensive abdomen contour. By combining the two treatments, Dr Liew has more opportunities to sculpt the torso and restore shape to the body. Dr Liew uses an advanced liposculpting technique to re-sculpt the abdominal area that eliminates fatty tissue and moulds the skin and underlying tissue. Dr Liew’s holistic approach to beauty ensures your contours and curves are in harmony with your overall body shape. This advanced technique, combined with Dr Liew’s aesthetic vision, will help to produce a slimmer figure and a naturally toned appearance.

Pairing this treatment with Liposculpture of the flanks and thighs

For a more comprehensive full-body result, Dr Liew often recommends combining the tummy tuck with Liposculpture of the flanks and thighs to achieve a holistic reshaping of the lower body.

Dr Liew uses his advanced technique to contour and refines the area between the waistline and the thighs. Drawing on liposculpting techniques, Dr Liew can remove large amounts of fat and manipulate the underlying tissue to mould the skin and smooth out the body’s entire midsection. 

When combined with a tummy tuck, this procedure can restructure the area as a whole, allowing Dr Liew to harmonise the body’s thighs, sides, and overall curves. The result is a naturally convincing, balanced and slimmer midsection that can enrich and redefine your entire appearance.
