Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Surgery

Is Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery the right choice for you?

Abdominoplasty is a way for patients to achieve dramatic contouring results in the midsection of the body. Our patients may choose abdominoplasty to reverse the effects of pregnancy or weight gain, removing stubborn fat or tightening stretched abdominal muscles to restore a smoother, flatter abdomen. Some patients also undergo abdominoplasty after massive weight loss, because we can trim away loose folds of skin that are often left behind after shedding kilograms quickly. With extensive experience to draw from, we can tailor this procedure to the unique needs of each of our patients, ensuring their results are both natural and beautiful.

The following are some of the reasons that patients seek advice:

  • Excess skin and fat which overhangs the bikini panty line or pubis following weight loss or pregnancy
  • Weakened or separated abdominal muscles after large weight loss and pregnancy
  • Delicate skin with extensive stretch marks over the abdomen

Information about abdominoplasty / tummy tuck surgery

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Multiple pregnancies, large weight loss, or just time and gravity can take its toll on the abdomen. Even those who have exercised and dieted and have achieved their goal weight, may still have loose skin and excess fat that they just can’t budge. In addition you may have functional problems related to fitting clothing, exercising, low back pain, and intertrigo (rashes beneath folds of excess skin).

Risks & possible complications of abdominoplasty

The decision to undergo a surgical procedure is based upon the risks of surgery versus the benefits of the procedure.

Abdominoplasty is conducted under general anaesthesia. Whilst it is possible to minimise the risk of anaesthesia through the use of fully trained specialist anaesthetists, state of the art hospitals and equipment, there are important risks of which you must be aware.
