Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) at our Birmingham clinic is a popular plastic surgery operation that is ideal for removing loose skin and repairing the abdominal muscle after pregnancy and weight loss. A tummy tuck aims to restore a smoother, more toned and youthful tummy. These conditions are not addressed well by liposuction alone or any of the popular skin tightening devices in the market.
Although abdominoplasty surgery does include surgical excision and liposuction, resulting in a level of weight loss, a tummy tuck is primarily performed to tighten excess skin gained during pregnancy or dramatic weight loss. Patients may be advised to lose weight prior to surgery in order to undergo the operation safely and see the best results.
A tummy tuck can be a life changing procedure, with many benefits including:
Many factors will be taken into account when deciding whether a patient is suitable for abdominoplasty. Below are some ideal candidates for a tummy tuck.
The lock and glue tummy tuck or lipoabdominoplasty is an innovative approach combining internal locking stitches, tissue glue and local anaesthetic infusion pumps without the use of drains ( tubes left within the abdominal wound to drain excess blood and body fluids) which we use for all our tummy tuck patients.
The result is greater comfort for the patients, earlier mobilisation, earlier discharge and less risk of complications. The quilting and liposuction is effective in creating a more athletic looking abdomen with greater definitions.
