What is a brazilian abdominoplasty or brazilian tummy tuck?
A Brazilian abdominoplasty – or Brazilian tummy tuck – is similar to the traditional abdominoplasty technique, in that the same amount of surplus skin is removed and the tummy button or umbilicus is repositioned; however, all the undermining is achieved by very careful liposuction, avoiding cutting blood vessels and nerves. This procedure therefore avoids multiple drains and can very often be carried out as a day case.
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.
By combining the optimal choice of treatment with my skills and surgical vision, I am able to create the natural ‘invisible’ finish for my patients. I believe in exceptional one to one care and in taking the journey together from the start to finish.
What scars can I expect from abdominoplasty surgery?
During the abdominoplasty surgery an incision needs to be made across the hip bone along with below the belly button, these incisions lead to a small amount of scarring within these areas which gradually becomes less noticeable and will fade over time.
