Whether following pregnancy or significant weight loss leading to an excess of fatty tissue and distention of the abdominal skin, sometimes accompanied by stretchmarks, significant damage or scarring; There are different variants of tummy tuck abdominoplasty at Laclinic to suit each case: mini abdominoplasty, extended abdominoplasty, muscle plasty. (performed simultaneously if the rectus abdominal muscles are distended) and sometimes combined with liposuction on the sides and the abdomen performed during the same operation.
Tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty that we provide in our clinic restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer, by removing excess fat and skin.
A full personal assessment (including a blood test and planned pre-anaesthesia consultation) is necessary prior to treatment. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic but may be performed under partial anaesthetic if it is not combined with muscle plasty. The length of the horizontal incision varies from patient to patient. Manual lymphatic drainage is performed in the first few days, then Endermologie® drainage is performed to speed up the resorption of oedema and optimise healing.
