You’ve reached your goal weight, the dedication in the gym, focus on nutrition and healthy lifestyle have paid off. Or perhaps following pregnancy, you’ve worked hard to get your body back into shape. But your body shape does not show all your hard work, and how you look on the outside, does not reflect how you feel on the inside.
Women often find following pregnancy or large weight loss, they are left with excessive loose skin, stretchmarks or deposits of fat around the abdomen. These stubborn areas can be hard to shift with exercise and weight loss alone.
An abdominoplasty may be able to help improve this, and help you achieve a flatter, more toned abdomen. It should also be noted that long term lifestyle changes are recommended in order to achieve and maintain a more permanent result from your tummy tuck surgery.
Abdominoplasty surgery, or tummy tuck involves the surgical removal of loose skin and excess fat around the abdomen, and tightening of the underlying abdominal muscles. Your surgeon may also recommend liposculpture for the removal of excess fat to assist in achieving your ideal shape.
See our before and after photos of some of our abdominoplasty patients.
The ideal patient for abdominoplasty surgery is someone who is feeling fit and well, is in good shape, and has concerns about loose skin around their stomach area.
Women who are thinking about future pregnancies are advised to delay having tummy tuck surgery until after they have finished having children. This is because of the large changes the body goes through during pregnancy, which may have adverse effects on the results of a tummy tuck.
