Reshaping your abdomen (tummy)
We can reshape your abdomen to improve both its appearance and your comfort. This can involve removing excess skin and fat directly, or fat only using liposuction, or using a combination of techniques.
You should note that these procedures are not designed for weight reduction. You get the best results when you are close to your ideal body weight.
See the links at the bottom of this page to find out more about how we can help you.
Options for abdominal reshaping
Why might you consider abdominal reshaping?
There are three main reasons to consider surgical procedures for improving the look and comfort of your abdomen:
- changes that come from pregnancy
- changes that come from significant weight loss
- problem areas where fat has accumulated.
Changes from pregnancy
Pregnancy causes the abdomen to stretch considerably.
Often the skin and muscles don't recover fully following childbirth, and you're left with excess tissue, especially in the lower abdomen. Damage to the skin may cause stretch marks, and even with exercise the abdomen’s muscle tone may never recover.
Changes from significant weight loss
If you have lost a lot of weight, the skin of the abdomen often forms large folds. The folds may extend around to your back. Often these changes come on top of those from pregnancy.
Problem areas of fat accumulation
You can get disproportionate amounts of fat accumulating in and around your abdomen as part of the way your body normally distributes fat .
