Abdominoplasty in Swansea

If you have lost a lot of weight or if you have been through pregnancy, then you may have found your stomach area is not as taught as it once was. In addition, you may have lots of excess skin hanging over your stomach causing you embarrassment and low self esteem.

Your Tummy Tuck in Swansea

If you are considering undergoing an abdominoplasty procedure, you might be wondering what can be achieved as well as what’s involved. The procedure is designed to create a smoother abdomen. This could be following the result of extreme weight loss or pregnancy, which has left the skin very loose and stretched. It is not possible to remove this skin through diet or exercise alone, and so an abdominoplasty can offer a very satisfactory solution.
How your surgeon achieves a flatter looking stomach area, is to make an incision following one of 4 commonly used patterns, removing loose skin and fat, whilst tightening abdominal muscles. The type of incision that would be most suitable for you depends on a number of factors and this will be discussed with you prior to surgery.
Your surgeon may also combine a tummy tuck with liposuction for the best results.

You should expect to have a 1-3 day stay in hospital, with a full recovery after about 6-8 weeks.

The result will be a tighter, flatter looking stomach area.
