Losing a significant amount of weight is an incredible achievement but it might leave you with undesirable excess skin and fatty tissue around your abdomen. An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a popular procedure for men who would like to have the flat stomach they have been aiming for.
During a full abdominoplasty, your expert surgeon will remove the excess skin and sculpt the tummy to its natural contours, resulting in a flatter, firmer tummy and a more toned appearance that you'll be confident to show off.
At Cadogan Clinic we offer a specialized Brazilian Abdominoplasty, which restores the shape and skin of the abdomen area. This procedure is offered for anyone who wishes to remove excess skin on your tummy that is more difficult to lose through traditional weight loss or exercise.
Cadogan Clinic is proud to have two of the top surgeons specializing in Brazilian Abdominoplasty out of only a handful of surgeons in the UK who offer this technique. We have patients coming from all over the world to do these specific surgeries. For more information on the specialized abdominoplasty surgeries we offer at our state-of-the-art facility, please read on.
Problems in the abdominal area vary by patient, but include:
+ Uneven fat distribution – treated by liposuction or non-surgical means
+ Excess, sagging skin – treated by removing the skin by surgery
+ Loss of elasticity in the skin and stretch marks(striae) – treated by laser
+ Stomach muscle weakness – treated by strengthening and tightening of the fascia or ligaments that hold the muscle in position.
Benefits of The Cadogan Clinic Brazilian Abdominoplasty:
+ Less pain
+ Less downtime
+ Considerably less risk of haematoma seroma (blood or fluid filling up in the area operated on)
+ Often carried out as a day case
+ No need for drainage
+ More of a nipped in waist
+ Quick recovery
+ More liposuction
To compare with the risks of a traditional tummy tuck:
+ Normally stay several nights in the hospital
+ More downtime
+ High chance for hematoma seroma (blood or fluid filling up in the area operated on)
+ Longer recovery time
+ Connected to drains from the surgery area, highly unpleasant!
This procedure will require a one- to two-day stay at the clinic, as well as recommended to take off one to two weeks from your work for recovery time. You'll be back to your normal exercise within 6 weeks following the surgery.
A mini abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck) is a similar procedure, although the excess skin and fat of the lower abdomen are removed in a more limited method. Your surgeon may also perform liposuction, in order to achieve the best possible results. The recovery time for a mini tummy tuck is similar to that of a full abdominoplasty, requiring 1-2 weeks off work. You could, however, be working from home within a couple of days. You can expect to be back to your regular light activities within 10 days after surgery, and back to exercise within 6 weeks of treatment.
