Major weight loss, whether due to diet or after pregnancy, can result in loose skin on a person’s stomach.  Where exercise hasn’t worked to tighten the skin, and for people living in North West England, an abdominoplasty in Manchester may be the answer.

What is Abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty is a form of plastic surgery, also known as a tummy tuck. During the procedure, a surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. They also tighten abdominal muscles. Surgery may include liposuction and can remove scars and stretch marks. As a result of surgery, abdominal skin will be tighter, and the appearance of the stomach area will improve. If a person maintains their weight after surgery, the results are long-lasting.

Choosing Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is generally an elective surgery. This does not mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously as is not without risk. As a result, people considering surgery should seek out a surgeon registered with the General Medical Council and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Ideally, they should also be a Specialist FRCS in Plastic Surgery.

Not everyone will be suitable for surgery. They may plan on losing more weight for example or want to get pregnant in the near future. Their surgeon will discuss this with them as well as how they can reduce risks. For example, they may ask them to stop smoking or take up regular exercise. One of the major benefits for a potential patient is being able to ask their surgeon questions and address any concerns.
