If no amount of diet or exercise is leaving you with a firm, flat stomach, a tummy tuck can help.
This is one of Dr Praveen’s most popular procedures, driven primarily by mothers whose bodies haven’t recovered after pregnancy, but also by men or women who have lost a significant amount of weight. While you’ve no doubt heard people say that diet or exercise is the solution, unfortunately there is only so much self-repair our skin can do. In reality, the only solution for stubborn excess skin is surgery.
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasty, address three key areas of concern – excess skin, persistent fat, and lax muscles. Dr Praveen employs a combination of both liposuction and abdominoplasty.
Tummy tucks are very often combined with breast surgery in a popular combined procedure known as the mummy makeover. This targets the two areas most effected by pregnancy and breast feeding – the tummy, and the breasts.
Is it for me?
If your tummy leaves you feeling self-conscious and you’d like it to be much firmer and tighter, you’re an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck.
When can I go home?
You will stay in hospital for three following your surgery. You can go home as soon as you’re comfortable and able to get to and from the bathroom.
When you get home, you should limit your movements to around the house for two to three days to ensure a complete recovery.
How long I need to be off the work/normal activities?
You’ll be off work for around three weeks,It will take around three weeks until you are fully recovered and can resume all your normal activities.
When can I see end result?
The benefits of your abdominoplasty will be immediate, although it may take up to two months until you can appreciate the full results. It will also take at least few months for your scar to mature and fade.
