When you’re in the mood, losing weight is not impossible – and the benefits are manifold. There’s a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, strokes and all the other obesity-related illnesses, as well as the ability to fit into your old clothes and the opportunity to buy new ones.
The only downside is what happens to your skin, particularly around the stomach area: shorn of its previous elasticity, it loses its ability to ‘snap’ back into place. And no manner how hard you work in the gym – or how diligent you are with your diet – you’re going to need professional help if you want to truly restore your body shape.
The solution: abdominoplasty
Commonly known as a ‘tummy tuck’, an abdominoplasty is a procedure which contours the abdomen, removes the excess skin, tightens up the stomach muscles and even removes any excess fat that still remains. Abdominoplasty is fast becoming one of the most popular treatments we offer, and for good reason: it finishes off the job you started when you decided to embark on a weight loss programme.
The actual surgical procedure involves two incisions under general anaesthesia, a tightening and repositioning of the abdominal muscles, a removal of unnecessary fat and skin, and an overnight stay. It’s not a simple procedure – but as our previous clients will tell you, it’s well worth it.
