An Abdominoplasty/Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to tighten the abdomen muscles. An Abdominoplasty procedure helps to tight the muscles that have loosened due to age, weight fluctuations, childbirths and pregnancies. Tummy tuck procedure is good for anyone on who is in a good health and who feels that their abdomen is large or ill shaped. Sometimes people only need to correct the hanging or saggy pannus or lower abdomen. For that, a mini or partial abdominoplasty will suffice and it will make lower abdomen tightened. Tummy tuck will involve a preoperative medical examination so that our plastic surgeons will be able to determine what kind of surgery would suit you the best.
Sometimes patients will attend Signature Clinic for a Vaser/SmartLipo consultation to find that they are unsuitable for this treatment and a tummy tuck may be a more beneficial procedure, we have highly skilled surgeons at our clinic who perform appropriate tummy tucks under local anaesthetic, however if you are not suitable for a local anaesthetic abdominoplasty – we will refer you to a clinic who can cater for larger tissue areas that will require general anaesthetic and potential overnight stays.
Typically from hip-hip, at the underline mark, we do have treatments at the clinic that can reduce the diameter of the scar, 6 months post procedure.
Our expert surgeons carefully screen appropriate patients who are suitable for a mini abdominoplasty under local anaesthetic. Your safety is paramount to Signature Clinic, and should you be more suitable for general anaesthetic, we will refer you to a clinic in Glasgow that can cater for you accordingly.
You will attend the clinic to meet a highly trained member of the Signature Clinic team who will provide you with a full consultation and assessment where we will assess your BMI, skin laxity, show you before and afters and provide you with a full treatment plan.
