A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical procedure which is specifically used to achieve a tighter, flatter smoother-looking abdomen. The procedure involves the removal of excess fat and skin along with the surgical repair of weakened and separate muscles.
There are two types of tummy tucks – the mini-abdominoplasty and full abdominoplasty. The mini-abdominoplasty makes a smaller incision and removes fat and excess skin. The naval will be pulled lower, and there is not as much abdominal tightening required. As this surgery is smaller, there will be a quicker recovery time.
At Highness Clinics we also perform a modern variant of the traditional abdominoplasty called a Lipoabdominoplasty. In addition to skin removal and muscle tightening, this procedure also involves extensive liposuction to sculpt and contour the abdomen and flanks.
We have gone a step further and taken the lipoabdominoplasty procedure and combined this using 3 technologies
Microaire to make us one of the few providers in the market to offer more than one technology in a one procedure
NOTE: there is no non-surgical alternative to a proper abdominoplasty which although invasive in nature, achieves dramatic results through skin tightening, muscle reconstruction and targeted fat removal – all in one procedure.
Whilst the surgeon will make every effort to make scars as concealed as possible, if you are not keen on the idea of large incisions, potentially long scars and a required period of downtime then we do also offer a new highly effective solution with BodyTite.
