Abdominoplasty will enhance your body contour by making your abdomen firmer and flatter. Results from this procedure are simply incredible and often life changing. Removing excess skin may mean clothes will fit better, you may feel a lot more comfortable and wear clothes you never thought possible.
As our specialist plastic surgeons are Abdominoplasty experts we offer different variations of the tummy tuck and will plan each patients surgery to suit their individual needs.
Following Weight loss…
Having undergone significant weight loss, many people can be left with loose skin on various parts of their body which can prove to be very unsightly. Both men and women will decide for aesthetic reasons to undergo a tummy tuck to rid themselves of the loose skin. The surgery is exactly the same for all patients with our three types of tummy tucks available to them albeit for a different reason.
Some women, although they are very few, that following pregnancy they are left with their pre-pregnancy tummy and no stretch marks. For the less fortunate whilst the joy of motherhood is unrivalled, there is no doubt to have their old tummy back would be simply wonderful.
Whilst your tummy size is growing , the muscle wall is being compromised at the same time. The wonder of a tummy tuck, in short, is the removal of the excess skin, the tightening back of the muscle wall if necessary and of course the removal of stretch marks if present below the belly button.
This is a procedure similar to the standard abdominoplasty but the surgeon will also perform internal liposuction during the procedure. This technique was pioneered in Brazil and we have been performing this particular type of tummy tuck for three years now with great success.The results are a sculpted and tightened tummy.
The surgery can take between 1.5- 3 hours and we would invite you to stay overnight in our private facilities to recooperate under the care of our expert medical team. There will be a permanent incision line following surgery. In some instances, they will eventually be only faint lines. Fortunately, the incision for your Abdominoplasty is usually concealed by most bathing suits and underwear
Results & Recovery
With Abdominoplasty, the abdominal wall muscles may tightened and excess fatty tissue and skin are removed to improve the body contour. The goal is a narrower, flatter abdomen. Realistic Expectations are important as this is not a weight loss procedure.The recovery time varies from patient to patient but a recent survey shows that most women will be back at work within fourteen days following this procedure.
