Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty, also referred to as Tummy Tuck Surgery, is a medical procedure to remove flabby skin and excess fat from the waist. It helps with the muscles tightening of the abdominal wall to have a flatter-looking stomach.
At Cosmetic Surgery Manchester, we have the latest technologies and highly skilled professionals to offer you quality services. We aim to bring you effective treatments that improve your body shape.
Typically, multiple pregnancies, weight loss methods, and ageing contribute to a saggy stomach. But, tummy-tuck can help you restore the body to its pre-childbirth look.
Abdominoplasty often occurs with other cosmetic procedures, including liposuction and breast augmentation. However, you can have our tummy-tuck surgery as a separate procedure to shape the abdomen.
Tummy Tuck Surgical Methods
Full Tummy Tuck Surgery might take up to 2 to 3 hours with one or two night's stay. You will probably be required to stay for two nights after the procedure. Moreover, we conduct this surgery under general anaesthesia to make incisions across the lower abdomen and the belly button. After marking incisions, the extra fat and skin are removed, and the muscles are pulled to shape a new belly button. In this surgery, we separate the skin from the abdominal wall to realign the abdominal muscles.
Our surgeons also have hands-on experience on a Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery performed to remove lesser fat and skin from the lower abdomen. With this surgery, you may experience two advantages;
No repositioning of the navel
Size reduction of incisions
Those who undergo Full Tummy Tuck surgery must submit the recommended blood tests, ECG, and MRSA's reports before the procedure. Once the surgery is completed, the tummy-tucks procedure requires rest for up to two weeks. What's more, Full abdominoplasty is more like a C-section method because of the mobility restriction for the first few days.
We also use dissolvable stitches, and must be kept clean and dry during the recovery days. However, for quick recovery and healing, we offer you a compression garment. The compression garment, also helps in reducing the inflammation and pain around the incisions. Post-surgery advice includes six weeks of rest before you get back to the normal routine.
