The abdominal reduction or "tummy tuck" is a surgical procedure to tighten the skin of the abdominal wall, frequently performed following childbirth and weight loss.
Plumper patients will require liposuction to reduce the fat following the procedure and, where the muscles are stretched, some tightening of the fascia that holds them together will be required.
There are four main different abdominoplasty procedures: - The Cadogan Clinic Brazilian tummy tuck. - Mini or partial abdominoplasty. - Full Abdominoplasty or traditional tummy tuck is now obsolete at the Cadogan Clinic. - Cadogan Caesar Correction (CCS) - post C-section scar revision
There are other techniques used in particular situations and these are described elsewhere on this website.
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.
