Tummy TuckAchieve your ideal waistline and a finely contoured stomach with a tummy tuck procedure from the Cosmetic Clinic. Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for both men and women.
Many women find themselves left with decreased strength and muscle tone as well as excess skin and fat around the belly following pregnancy, and both men and women find themselves with excess skin and fat around the belly following weight loss or through natural ageing. These effects manifest themselves in unsightly stretch marks, flabbiness and laxity on the skin, leading to high levels of stress and anxiety and low self-esteem as men and women no longer feel as attractive as they used to. This leaves many individuals seeking to hide their bodies beneath loose fitting clothes.
A tummy tuck can help restore self confidence by improving the contour lines of your body, enabling you to wear the clothes you desire. Tummy tuck procedures can be performed on patients whose stomachs are sagging due to age, or simply to sculpt a more desirable stomach shape at any point in life.
Tummy tuck procedures are highly personalised to suit your individual requirements, providing smoother body contours, improved shape to the abdomen and increased self confidence. Tummy tuck and mini-tummy tuck procedures leave you with flatter, thinner, smaller and more youthful waistline and can resolve issues of excess skin and stretch marks.
Some men and women who undergo tummy tuck procedures also undergo liposuction and liposculpture procedures to remove fat and enhance the shape of their bodies even further.
About the Procedure
Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You?
Your personal suitability for a tummy tuck procedure is something that will be discussed in your free tummy tuck consultation with your Surgeon. However, our vast experience of tummy tuck procedures and patient testimonies has taught us that tummy tuck procedures are most successful in patients who:
- have developed excess skin around their abdomen
- have developed excess fat and stretched abdominal muscle
- have developed lax skin and excess fat as a result of pregnancy
Your Tummy Tuck Consultation
Your free tummy tuck consultation will be conducted with one of our experienced patient co-ordinators and cosmetic nurses. They will explain the tummy tuck procedure in detail and discuss both your expectations and the outcome you will achieve following tummy tuck surgery. They will then arrange an appointment for you to meet with your tummy tuck Surgeon prior to your abdominoplasty, who will explain which option is best suited to your requirements and how you can expect to look following your tummy tuck procedure.
The Procedure for Your Tummy Tuck
Both tummy tuck and mini-tummy tuck procedures are performed under general anaesthetic, meaning that you will be asleep throughout the procedure and will feel no pain. Tummy tuck surgery requires an overnight stay in hospital following surgery.
A mini-tummy tuck is a less invasive alternative, which involves removing fat from directly below the navel. This significantly reduces your recovery and healing time and leaves a smaller and less visible scar.
Recovery from Your Tummy Tuck
After your tummy tuck procedure you will require rest until the effects of the anaesthetic have passed. General painkillers can be used if your tummy tuck procedure results in any pain.
You are not permitted to drive following your tummy tuck procedure and will need to be driven home. Your cosmetic nurse will advise you on your healing time and arrange a follow-up appointment with your Surgeon, typically about one week after your tummy tuck procedure.
Your Comprehensive Aftercare
The Cosmetic Clinic offers unrivalled post-operative patient care following your tummy tuck procedure, with a 24 hour medical helpline and an extensive aftercare package available to aid your recovery at no extra cost. The package includes all post-operative instructions, care leaflets and information, along with details of all follow-up appointments arranged with your tummy tuck Surgeon.
