Time taken for tummy tuck surgery?
The answer varies depending on what is done and who does it. It could be anywhere from 1 hour to 4 hours. My own personal experience is about 2 hours.
It takes me about two hours to do a tummy tuck surgery. It really depends on the bleeding that one encounters and the amount of tissue that I remove. I almost always do this surgery as an outpatient and many times combine it with breast enlargement (mommy make-over).

Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty is a term that is applicable to a variety of procedures aimed at removing excess abdominal skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles. I may also include liposuction.
Depending on the patient's individual anatomy, a tummy tuck may consist of:
!. Excision of lower abdominal skin alone; 2. Using a small incision to repair the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles with minimal, or no skin excision; 3. wide undermining of and excision of the lower abdominal skin with rectus abdominis muscle repair; 4. selective liposuction of the lower abdomen and /or flanks.
Depending on which "tummy tuck" is done, the time may range from 2 to 4 hours.
