Tummy Tuck in Bali

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Bali

Sagging skin across your midriff? Looking to get it removed? Why not consider a tummy tuck in Bali. Get your pre-pregnancy figure back and enjoy a fabulous holiday at the same in this gorgeous destination.

Sometimes, diet and exercise alone are not enough to get rid of the loose skin you may have around your middle. If you are slim everywhere else it may be particularly galling but there is an easy solution – providing you are not intending to get pregnant again.

Why should I get a tummy tuck in Bali?

Bali is a newcomer to the world of medical tourism, but that doesn’t mean the quality isn’t good. It will, of course, have learnt from its near neighbors on how it can provide excellent services to foreign clients. The island is part way there, having been a favorite holiday destination for some years now – particularly to travelers from North America, Europe and Australasia.

Bali’s new hospitals and clinics are exceptionally kitted with the highest quality diagnostic and therapeutic technology. Taking quality seriously, the Indonesian government are making sure their services compare favorably with other countries in Asia, and are ensuring hospitals are accredited with internationally-recognized organizations, such as the Joint Commission International.

Obviously, most people come to Bali with rest, relaxation and recuperation in mind and whether you want to do this before or after your treatment, the island offers a host of opportunities and locations to suit all.

Wonderful beaches, the rugged mountains, verdant rice terraces and friendly natives make this an unforgettable destination, and whether you want to sample activities like white-water rafting, traditional Bali traditions like the fire dance, unique temples or just gorge on the array of different cuisines here, there’s something for everyone.

One of the other reasons you may want to consider Bali for your tummy tuck is the price – you’ll save thousands.

What’s involved in a tummy tuck procedure and how long does it take?

Procedure times vary on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed and whether you have a full or partial tummy tuck.

In a full tummy tuck, a long incision is made about the pubic area, and a shorter one near the belly button, so this can be moved. In a partial tummy tuck the incision above the pubic area is much shorter, and there isn’t one by the naval as the belly button isn’t moved.

Once the incision(s) are made, the skin is separated from the abdominal wall and the muscles pulled tight and sutured. The excess skin is also pulled tight, the excess removed and the remainder stitched back into place.

Surgery can take between 1-3 hours, but could take up to 5.

What about post-operative recovery after a tummy tuck?

You will need to rest in bed for several days afterwards. Stitches are usually removed between 5-7 days. Some people return to work after a week, but two may be more suitable. You will need to be careful not to do any vigorous activity for 6 weeks, and it will be several months before you feel completely fine – and up to a year for your scars to heal inside and out.

What is the cost comparison of a Tummy Tuck in Bali compared to Australia and New Zealand?

The average cost of a tummy tuck in Australia AUD $14,000 (NZD $15,000; US $10,700; CAD $14,000; GBP £8,600; EUROS €10,100)
