ABDOMINOPLASTY / TUMMY TUCK
Abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’ is an operation aimed to reduce excess tummy skin, restoring a more youthful appearance to the body. Some patients have lost weight, but often this is just an unwanted effect of ageing and having children. It is often done in combination with liposuction to improve the contour in the hips and flanks as well. Most patients are self-conscious about the look of the tummy, -this may affect their choice of clothing, work, activities and self-confidence in relationships. They may also get symptoms such as sweating and chafing with unsightly discoloured skin or stretch marks around the tummy button.
Abdominoplasty surgery can be done a number of ways. I have extensive experience of all the latest techniques and will be able to advise which technique is best for you, depending on the amount of skin laxity you have, the quality and thickness of the skin and subcutaneous fat and your desired overall shape. Many surgeons are only familiar with one or two techniques, so its important to know, whoever you see, that they are suggesting the operation that is best for you rather than just suggesting the operation they are able to do. For more details of the procedure, see my ‘Abdominoplasty Information Leaflet’ below.
My patients are highly satisfied with their surgery. This includes hospital and nursing staff who have asked me to perform the operation after seeing my outcomes, and by personal recommendation of friends and relatives who like my friendly yet professional approach, and know they are in safe hands. My patients are more comfortable with their appearance after surgery, their confidence and self-esteem is better. They feel they can wear more revealing clothing, clothing fits them better in general and often personal and sexual relationships improve. It is an operation I enjoy doing knowing predictably good results.
