    Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck:

    Abdominoplasty, more often referred to as tummy tuck, is an innovative body contouring and rejuvenating surgery that involves removing extra fats and skin from the mid-section of the abdomen. The Abdominoplasty London aims to give a tighter, smoother, and flatter appearance to your stomach and is line up to remove excess fat and skin after pregnancy, excessive weight loss, and aging.

    The Abdominoplasty reports the pragmatic outcomes in terms of improving the self-esteem and confidence of many patients. In addition, it is a beautiful way to do away with excessive sagging and flabby skin that appears after tremendous weight loss. The excess fats in our body cause the skin to stretch, and when weight loss happens, the skin doesn’t come back to its normal state. Similarly, an aging body starts producing less collagen and leaves with a sagging and less elastic body. Women also feel a terrible loosening of abdominal muscles and skin after childbirth or the caesarian birth. Tummy tuck surgery London is a general plastic surgery procedure to get back to the body’s pre- childbirth state, get rid of the aging signs, and bin the weight loss after effects.

The groups of surgeons are always helpful in deciding the candidacy criteria for the tummy tuck surgery procedure in London. The surgeons choose if;

    • You are seriously bothered by the excess fat and skin in the abdomen and around the waist.

    • You are not in the practice of smoking or willing to quit smoking six weeks before and after the surgery to aid in the fastest healing and recovery.

    • Internal and external scarring may also affect your candidacy criteria for a tummy tuck.
    • You can easily avoid taking certain drugs such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and herbal medications.

    Tummy Tuck Procedure:

    The extent of change and contour your body needs helps the surgeons at London Surgical Suites to decide the particular type of fat and skin removal procedure. During the typical process, your surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat between the pubic area and belly button. You will be given general anesthesia depending upon your anesthesia history or surgeon’s recommendations. Incisions are made in horizontal oval or elliptical direction to eliminate the fats and excess sagging skin from the abdomen. Surgeons use permanent sutures to tighten the connective tissues (Fascia) that lie over the core. Skin repositioning around the belly button is carried out by making a small incision around the belly button by bringing it out. The surgeon will put it back to its normal position with the help of stitches.  Suturing the incision above the bikini line will leave scars that fall along the skin’s natural creases. You might be given intravenous antibiotics during the surgery to prevent the spread of infections. The entire procedure of tummy tuck surgery in London takes about two to three hours to get complete.
