What Does It Involve?

Some patients have a small amount of excess skin but noticeable muscle divarication that requires excision and repair but insufficient for a full abdominoplasty.   Unlike full-abdominoplasty, the lower abdominal scar will be shorter and there will be no scar around the umbilicus. However, there may be some residual excess skin above the umbilical. The principle of the surgery is similar to a full abdominoplasty and the full recovery time is still around the 6 weeks period. Mr. Ho-Asjoe can clarify if you are a suitable candidate for this type of surgery during the consultation.

After Surgery

Patients are allowed gentle mobilization in the first 4 weeks and should avoid strenuous activities. Patients are encouraged to shower and to wear the supportive abdominal binder. Full recovery is usually expected around the 6 weeks period. Some patients may find standing fully erected uncomfortable but this sensation will gradually ease off.

I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.


Doctor Mark is one of the best surgeon. Can’t complain about the result, simply perfect.


Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).


Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
