Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgery in Bristol, Bath, Gloucester and Newport
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure performed to reshape the abdomen / stomach area. There are a variety of methods available to perform tummy tuck surgery and the operation will be tailored specifically to suit a person’s individual wishes and body. Tummy tuck surgery is most commonly carried out to remove excess fat and skin, unwanted scars, stretch marks, and to tighten the stomach muscles.
Is tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery right for me?
Typically, patients who are suitable for abdominoplasty have at least one of the following:
- Loose, excess skin that developed with age and/ or following pregnancy
- Surplus skin and fat on the abdomen after rapid weight loss
- Loose, ‘overhang’ skin that will not reduce despite increased exercise and positive changes to diet
The ideal patient for this tummy tuck surgery is someone whose weight is stable, particularly those who have been overweight and have lost any excess weight. This operation is not intended to reduce weight or reduce dress size. If you are looking to loose a lot of fat, you may want to consider researching liposuction. Patients who do undertake tummy tuck surgery are generally very pleased with the results. You can read some of Mr Wilson’s tummy tuck surgery reviews here.
