Is tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery right for me?
Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty surgery, is one of the most popular procedures.
Tummy tucks can produce excellent results for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight, who have loose skin, or for women whose skin has lost some elasticity after pregnancy.
Many of the patients I speak to about abdominoplasty surgery eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly but have found they can’t improve the appearance of their tummy. Some have loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy and feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Naturally, this can have a big effect on self-esteem.
Some patients confess to avoiding swimming, beach holidays and even clothes shopping because they are unhappy with their stomach.
Tummy tuck surgery can really help. A full tummy tuck involves tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall, removing excess fat and skin and re-positioning the belly button. This creates a slimmer, flatter and smoother stomach.
The scar is placed well below the underwear line and will fade as you recover from the procedure.
There are lots of different types of tummy tuck surgery and after a thorough assessment in clinic I will tailor these techniques to your goals to achieve the best results for you. I specialise in the mini tummy tuck or mini-abdominoplasty, Brazilian tummy tuck or lipoabdominoplasty, full or traditional abdominoplasty, circumferential abdominoplasty or body lift, and Fleur-de-lis. I will advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you are looking for.
A tummy tuck is frequently combined with other procedures including liposuction and umbilicoplasty or belly button surgery.
