What is the approximate surgical time for a full tummy tuck?

I wanted to know approximately how long the surgical time might be for a full tummy tuck with muscle repair, and liposuction of the flanks and abdomen. Thank you.

A straightforward tummy tuck should take 1 1/2- 2 hours. If there are other procedures such as liposuction, an additional 1/2-1 hour can be added.

The surgical time for a full tummy tuck, muscle repair and flank liposuction varies somewhat by your exact needs, but takes around 4 hours. Plan to be at the surgery center for a minimum of 6-7 hours to allow for pre-op, surgery and recovery.
