Tummy Tuck Darlington

A tummy tuck, also referred to as Abdominoplasty, can be a great solution for those who have tried controlling their weight and exercising to gain a flat toned stomach, but are not seeing the results that they wish for. If you live in or around the area of Darlington Dr. Kim will be more than happy to discuss your options further.

Causes of a loose, sagging or protruding stomach include:

  • Ageing.
  • Pregnancy.
  • Heredity.
  • Results of a previous surgery.
  • Changes in weight.

Benefits of a Tummy tuck:

  • Excess fat and skin is removed.
  • Weak or separated muscles are tightened.
  • Could increase your self-esteem and confidence.

Mini Abdominoplasty

An incision will be made across the lower tummy (bikini line). The skin is then separated from the stomach wall and extra skin and fat will be removed. The skin that remains will be stitched together.

Full Abdominoplasty

An incision will be made across the lower abdomen (bikini line). An additional incision is then made to free the belly button from surrounding tissue and the skin is removed from the abdominal wall. The stomach muscles are tightened if it is necessary and a new hole is cut. The belly button is then reattached in its new position.

You will be required to stay in the hospital for two to three nights and your wound will be reviewed after seven days. It is advisable to wear a supporting corset for four weeks to ensure that your skin heals properly around the affected area.
