About Tummy Tuck Surgery
As we gain weight, either through puberty, pregnancy or lifestyle choices our skin stretches to accommodate our new shape. Gain weight too quickly and the skin develops stretch marks, but what happens if you lose weight just as quickly? If you're extremely luck your skin will snap back as it once was, but if you're part of the 99% who doesn't have phenomenal skin elasticity you may be left with loose skin on your tummy, as well as other areas including thighs and arms.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a popular procedure with anyone carrying excess skin on their abdomen.
Feeling self-conscious about your figure can make it really difficult to be confident in yourself and can even stop you wearing outfits you'd love to look good in. Having a firm, flat stomach can make a huge difference to the way you feel and when it's not possible to achieve this through diet and exercise alone, Tummy Tuck surgery can be the right option.
The first step to a new, more confident you is a free consultation with a member from our qualified team.

Whether you have a tummy tuck is, more often than not dependent on your skin's elasticity.
When we are young our skin is taut and supple due to an abundance of the proteins collagen and elastin. As we age our body start to produce less of these proteins which means our skin loses its bounce and elasticity. For some people this natural ageing process is very gradual, meaning they are still eligible for a liposuction procedure into their 40s, for others the process is rapid and the skin loses its elasticity at an earlier age. This means that you may only have a small area of concern to treat, but if we performed liposuction your skin would not 'ping' back and you would be left with more excess skin than you had before.
