Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, stretch marks and fat from the tummy.

Most patients opting for tummy tuck surgery will inevitably be women who dislike the effects childbirth has had on their body. Following pregnancy, the abdominal skin can stretch and cause excessive loose skin with an overhang of tissue in the lower abdomen. Pregnancy also pushes the tummy muscles apart and although exercise can help tone them up, it cannot bring them back together.
 
There will be scarring with this operation. The main scars will be across the lower tummy (bikini line) and around the belly button, but the size of them will depend on the type of surgery you have had. Following an initial consultation and examination with Mr Chana, he will be able to show you the position of where your scar is most likely to be.

Abdominoplasty is not for people who are overweight and is not used to help patients loose weight. Patients choosing to undergo surgery, should be within several pounds of their ideal weight. Obesity only increases the complication rate and can result in unsatisfactory results.
