Abdominoplasty in Northampton

It’s important to understand that you Northampton Tummy Tuck surgery is not designed for weight loss. You will experience some loss of weight and reduction in clothing as the excess skin removed will impact your weight. However, a Tummy Tuck is primarily performed to tighten and remove the loose, excess skin gained from pregnancy or dramatic weight loss.

Due to the nature of the surgery, Tummy Tucks are only recommended when there is no other suitable option available. Your Northampton abdominoplasty expert will ensure the right option for you.

Choice is always a good thing. It means that you can make the right decisions for you, based on your needs and your desired end result. However, choice can also be confusing and overwhelming, which is why we would like to help guide you to the right procedure or treatment for you.

Our medically led team of surgeons and cosmetic surgery nurses have many years' experience in performing Tummy Tuck procedures in our Northampton clinic and are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC)

Northampton Body Contouring Options

At The Harley Medical Group Northampton we offer a range of procedure to help you make your right decision.

Whether you can have a Tummy Tuck is dependent on your skin's elasticity.

When we are young our skin is taut and supple due to an abundance of the proteins Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen and Elastin. As we age our body starts to produce less of these essential 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 Tummy Tuck procedure well 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 a Tummy Tuck on your skin, it would not 'ping' back and you would be left with more excess skin than you had before.

At The Harley Medical Group Northampton we highly recommend researching all of your options when considering tummy tuck surgery to ensure you are happy with your decision.

Frequently Asked Abdominoplasty Questions

The risks with Tummy Tuck surgery are the same as with any surgical procedure performed under a general anaesthetic. However, your Northampton Abdominoplasty Surgeon will talk you through these before you make any decisions.

With a Full Tummy Tuck, the incision will be made as low on the abdomen as possible so any scar will sit below your hip line and be hidden by your underwear or bikini bottoms. An extensive tummy tuck may also require a scar from navel to breast bone.

With a Mini Tummy Tuck the incision will be made as lower on the abdomen, closer to the bikini line, and will be smaller - only slightly larger than a C-Section scar.

Your scar will be visible in the first few weeks but should fade quickly until it’s barely noticeable. If you’re worried about scarring, please talk to your Northampton Tummy Tuck Surgeon and read about our highly effective scar revision treatment

The results of Tummy Tuck surgery will last for many years if you maintain a healthy weight. However, it is important to be aware that our bodies change as we get older, so you may find that your skin loses some of its elasticity. If your weight fluctuates this may be exacerbated.

As an ethical Cosmetic Surgery provider, we do not perform Cosmetic Surgery on people under 18. We do not set an upper age limit for Tummy Tuck surgery. However, the older we get the longer it takes our bodies to recover, so your Cosmetic Surgeon will assess your current physical health and medical history to ensure you’re fit and well enough to undergo abdominoplasty surgery at our Northampton clinic.

Because our bodies change dramatically during pregnancy, if you plan to have a family we recommend waiting to have Tummy Tuck surgery. However, this is not a medical requirement and is something you should discuss with your Northampton Abdominoplasty Surgeon.

In some cases it can but we can’t guarantee this. Because the surgery involves pulling the skin taut and removing any excess, for some people the appearance of stretch marks can be reduced.

At The Harley Medical Group Northampton we highly recommend researching all of your options when considering surgery to ensure you are happy with your decision.

One possible option is the NHS, who operate with BAPRAS and BAAPS surgeons, and we highly recommended speaking with your GP to see if the NHS can help. However we have found that increasingly there is a reluctance to perform 'cosmetic' procedures, particularly a tummy tuck, on the NHS.

Here at our Northampton Tummy Tuck clinic we see many patients who explain that the wait for their procedure is either too long or they have been advised that they are not presently eligible. For example many women who come to us have been told that they need to maintain a BMI below 25 for two years before they can be placed on the long waiting list. Often the excess skin is the cause of the increased weight and they find it impossible to drop their BMI lower.

Also, many surgeons who work with the NHS how are required to perform a wide number of surgery's, this means unless they are specialists e.g. gynaecologists they may not frequently perform tummy tuck procedures. At The Harley Medical Group are surgeons are dedicated Cosmetic Surgeons who are specialists in Abdominoplasty surgery
