When you’re young, your body can be maintained with workouts and diets even after weight gain or loss. But the very same may not be easily said post-childbirth, or when you age, as your skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles start appearing even on your body. This is where Abdominoplasty, a surgery to remove stretched skin, draw abdominal muscles and correct the navel shape, comes in.
To help you narrow down your options, here are the 6 best clinics to drop by for abdominoplasty surgeries in Singapore!
Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Sweng Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery
Have you always wished to get rid of those abdominal skin excess or stretched marks post-childbirth? Now, you finally can with Sweng Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery! During their procedure, any abdominal muscle separation of yours will be tightened to accord you with a flatter abdomen. This will naturally also result in an hourglass waistline. Choose between their four choices – Conventional Abdominoplasty, Mini Abdominoplasty, Fleur De Lis and Belt Abdominoplasty. If you worry of pain, be rest assured general anaesthesia will be applied before the surgery commencement.
They will first start off with a pre-operative marking to determine the incision and amount of skin to be removed. Liposuction may be carried out on your love handles and upper abdomen for further enhancement if necessary. They will then excise the excess skin and fats according to the markings before tightening your abdominal muscles. Plastic tubings would also be inserted near the public hairline to prevent blood clot accumulation. All in all, the surgery at Sweng Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery takes 4-5 hours, with post-operation bruising lasting for 2 weeks.

2. MH Plastic Surgery
At MH Plastic Surgery, their abdominoplasty procedure lasts for 3-4 hours with general anaesthesia, and is completed as an inpatient session in the hospital. However, if there is excess and loose skin without muscle separation, muscle repair will be unnecessary and only the excess skin will need to be removed. This will be completed as a two-hour day surgery session without the need for hospitalisation.
Labelling it as a safe procedure with low infection risk and minimal blood loss, it may also be expected for the abdomen numbness to be experienced for quite a few weeks to months. This is so due to short-term damage to the sensory nerves, but it will usually recover by the end of 3-6 months. Even with good surgical techniques ensured, MH Plastic Surgery shares it would be good to take note that unfavourable scarring could still occur occasionally.

3. Shens Clinic
As some tummy fats are not removable via diets or workouts, one could turn to Shens Clinic for their Tummy Tuck procedure! The incision would be done at the lower part of the abdomen, below the bikini line, to hide the scars. Having said that, if you would like a procedure that repairs the muscles in the abdomen area, for example after a caesarean birthing, you can consider their Muscle Divarication Repair option. Bid goodbye to split muscles where the tummy wall is loose and hanging out.
Last but not least, Lipo Abdominoplasty combines both the Brazilian tummy tuck and liposuction procedure. Unsure of which selection to take up? Shens Clinic advises you have to have a proper consultation session with their doctors for you to weigh out the side effects and risks of each method!

4. Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre
Unlike the common misconception, a tummy tuck cannot repair stretch marks. Nevertheless, what Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre would like to do is to help you remove them, or improve on them if they are located on excess skin areas! After all, tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) serves to eliminate excess skin and fat.
And in most cases, this procedure helps to restore separated or weakened muscles, carving out an abdominal outline that is firmer and smoother. For a more defined and shapely waistline, you sure can count on Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre to transform your body shape like never before!

Always daydreamed of achieving your dream body? You certainly can see it materialise in the real world with Dream Plastic Surgery!

You might be surprised to know that even your navel shape can be corrected. A large skin volume is incised, with the whole abdominal muscles tightened through this surgery. The surgery will take around 3-4 hours with 3-6 weeks of recovery time.
Their Mini Abdominoplasty procedure is for skin drooping that is not severe or if the skin is relatively elastic. As the surgery only incises skin and draws abdominal muscles below the navel, its procedure duration is about 2-3 hours.
