At Reflect Clinic, our Tummy tucks and Liposuction are two expert services we offer for you to regain confidence in your body.
What is Tummy Tuck?
This procedure involves removing skin and fat below the tummy button. The muscles beneath the tissue can be tightened up with stretch marks and other scarring being removed.
Customers can choose to combine this procedure with breast surgery for our Mummy Makeover. Once ladies have completed their family and are at a steady weight, they can have this procedure performed.
Two Types of Tummy Tuck
A full tummy tuck lifts all the tummy right from the ribs and, therefore, allows the cosmetic surgeon to tighten the underlying muscles and correct any laxity (loose skin) in the upper part of the tummy simultaneously. This requires an incision around the umbilicus (tummy button) too.
A mini tummy tuck is for ladies who have a slight excess in the lower tummy area, and this can therefore be removed with a smaller scar and without lifting the skin to the ribs. Recovery and complications are also lower.
Therefore, it is essential to have a detailed assessment to discuss all the pros and cons of each operation and which one is more suitable for you.
Our Tummy Tuck service will leave you with a flatter and more toned looking stomach area.
A neat scar is located near the tummy button, and a long scar stretching from hip to hip. This is carefully designed to fit within your swimming garments or underwear.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is different to Tummy Tuck as fat is removed from specific and stubborn areas of the body. The procedure targets the areas that do not otherwise respond to low-calorie diets or exercise routines.
Who can get this treatment?
This treatment is suitable for anyone with stubborn fatty areas that won’t budge. It would be best if you were a stable weight and medically fit to have the operation.
The best results from our Liposuction procedure are where the skin is tight and can spring back into shape. Treated areas usually result in a better fit for clothing.
