Cosmetic Surgery For The Body
Many factors can lead to a lack of confidence in our body shape
Many people have an area of their body that they are unhappy with. Our surgeons have been performing liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, thigh lifts and many otherbody scultping procedures since The Harley Medical Group was established in 1983. There are many different reasons why people choose cosmetic surgery, but all our patients report a feeling of increased body confidence and self-esteem following their procedure.
With advances in cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatments being made all the time, you can now expect the latest techniques and shorter recovery time.
FAT REMOVAL (LIPOSUCTION) SURGERY
Many women find that they have stubborn pockets of fat that they can’t get rid of, most commonly around the thigh area, the buttocks, the upper arms and the abdomen. Liposuction is used to reshape and sculpt particular areas of the body by removing excess fat. This surgical procedure is not designed to be used as a procedure for weight loss but is instead for those people who have stubborn pockets of fat which diet and exercise just won’t shift. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and usually takes between one and two hours. Recovery varies from person to person but you can usually expect to be back at work after two weeks and see the full results of the surgery after six weeks.

TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTY) SURGERY
The tummy tuck procedure is particularly popular with new mums and with those women who have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with excess, loose skin. The surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and is used to remove any excess skin and fatty tissue, reshape the area and create a slimmer, smoother and tighter abdominal area. A tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction for those women who are looking to achieve a slimmer waistline.

ARM AND THIGH LIFT SURGERY
Those who have lost a substantial amount of weight can be left with unsightly loose skin on particular areas of their body, and it is not unusual for one of these areas to be the arms or thighs. Many people choose to have thigh lift surgery to improve the appearance of their legs, make them look slimmer and firmer, and have the confidence to show off the results of their weight loss. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and you will need to take two weeks off work in order to fully recover, during which time you will be advised to avoid any physical exercise.

Cosmetic gynaecology is often referred to as vaginal tightening or vaginal reshaping depending on the type of procedure you have. The days of taboo surrounding this type of cosmetic surgery are long gone and it is not at all uncommon for women to enquire about cosmetic gynaecology if they are unhappy with the way their genitalia looks, or if it is causing discomfort or embarrassment. Surgery can be performed on the outer areas of the genitalia – the pubis mound and labia minora – and on the inside if the surgeon is tightening the area.
