Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The abdominoplasty procedure, also known as a ‘tummy tuck’ or abdominal reduction is used to alter the shape of the abdomen. It involves removing excess skin and fat to achieve a flat tummy. After pregnancy or weight gain women often feel that the loose skin or bulging tummy negatively effects their confidence.
I had 2 procedures completed by Mr Khan and the team at the Candover. From the first meeting to my post operation follow up, I felt in control and informed of each step. The Candover offers a friendly, professional and go that extra mile attitude. I would highly recommend The Candover.”
A flatter stomach can be achieved by repairing tummy muscles and removing excess “flabby” skin . Men and women who were previously obese and have worked hard to lose the weight may still have excess fat deposits and loose skin. A tummy tuck will often help boost confidence by removing unwanted scars or stretch marks and tighten stomach muscles.
