Your London Tummy Tuck
An abdominoplasty, also called “tummy tuck” surgery, is a fairly common procedure in the UK. Aging, pregnancy or weight gain can all cause the tissues of the abdomen to lose firmness and lack tone. If you’re experiencing this problem you might be a candidate for abdominoplasty.
A tummy tuck in London can help to restore a flat, tight, and toned appearance as well as tighten the underlying muscles of your abdomen that may have been damaged or changed by pregnancy, for example. Depending on how much excess tissue there is, different kinds of incisions may be made. Generally the more extensive the procedure, the more the chance for scarring and the longer the recovery time.
Depending on your surgeons technical preferences, they may suggest including liposuction during your tummy tuck to shape and sculpt your stomach and provide you the exact result you want. Surgeons vary, however, so make sure to ask your Medbelle expert surgeon if you are interested in learning more about liposuction during your tummy tuck.
Your surgeon may make several small incisions between the hip bones to do an endoscopic tummy tuck, or make a single incision just a few inches long on the lower abdomen to remove a small amount of tissue for a mini tummy tuck.
For more extensive work, a full abdominoplasty may be required, entailing incisions that extend all the way from one hip to the other.
If you have a large amount of excess skin and tissue on your stomach, your surgeon may suggest a “fleur-de-lis” tummy tuck, involving incisions across the lower abdomen, a vertical incision, and a last one encircling the navel.
You’ll recover for 1 to 3 nights on-site before healing at home for a further 6 to 8 weeks. You can expect your swelling and discolouration to gradually diminish, revealing your fully healed flatter, tighter abdomen at around 6 months.
