As we get older, many of us develop a bulging tummy and this can be hard to shift even with the most determined of diet and exercise regimes. Pregnancy and Caesarean sections can also take their toll on a woman’s body leading to feelings of decreased confidence.
Tummy tucks are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures and can be combined with liposuction to give all over body contouring.
How can a tummy tuck help me?
With a tummy tuck, our specialist cosmetic surgeons will remove the extra skin and fat from your lower abdomen leaving you with a flatter, more defined stomach. Your new contour is likely to allow you to wear things you wouldn’t previously have dared!
Reducing the skin and fat on your abdomen and tightening the abdominal wall muscles - to correct a wide six pack or counter the effects of childbirth – is carried out under general anaesthetic by our experienced plastic surgeons who will tailor the procedure to your individual requirements.
What are the scars like?
When the skin and fat of the lower abdomen is removed, a scar is left along the panty-line in most cases, although occasionally a scar may rise higher if an improved waist is required. A small scar is also left around the belly button. These scars are red initially but in most cases settle down over the first year.
