Why get a Tummy Tuck?
Extreme body contour changes such as those caused by pregnancy or weight loss can often leave an ‘apron of fat’ – excess fatty tissue and skin folds draped along the mid and lower abdominal region. As much of this loose hanging tissue is actually stretched-out skin it cannot be removed through dieting or muscle toning exercise.
How does it work?
An incision is made along the hip and pubic hairline. Abdominal skin and fatty tissue is then raised and stretched downwards with the excess being removed before stitching. Repair of supportive muscular tissue is done at the same time and scars are usually well concealed in the fold of the groin and just below the pubic hairline.
What are the results?
A tummy tuck can vastly improve self-image and enable a patient to be confident in swimwear or underwear. Both men and women seek the advantages of a tummy tuck as a way to boost their self-esteem and acquire what they consider to be a desirable body.
