abdominoplastyAbdominoplasty – tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a ‘tummy tuck,’ is a  surgical procedure used to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Abdominoplasty is requested most often by mothers once they have completed their family and are wanting to get their body back to their pre-pregnancy state. This procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen or tummy and give back more youthful contours, but you will have a scar that runs from one hip to the other.

Most women are very happy to trade the scar for more normal contours. To see what these scars look like at 3 months following surgery, take a look at our photo gallery. We have examples of women of all shapes, sizes and ages to give you an idea of the results that can be achieved. Bear in mind that these scars are still young and will fade in colour over the next 12 to 16 months. However, the scars will never fade completely.

brachioplastyBrachioplasty – arm reduction

Brachioplasty, or arm reduction is a surgical procedure designed to remove loose and sagging skin from the upper arm. This procedure is generally considered following massive weight loss achieved by diet alone, or following some form of weight reduction surgery such as a “lap band”.

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is the surgical reduction of the size of one or both labia. The usual complaint from patients is that their labia are too long, not symmetrical or too pigmented. Factors such as trauma, congenital defects, pregnancy and childbirth, as well as time and gravity can be the cause for larger and darker than normal labia. Labiaplasty procedures have now lost the stigma once associated with this type of surgery and as a result many more women are assessing their options for improvement in this area.

liposuctionLiposuction

Suction assisted lipectomy, also known as liposuction or suction lipectomy, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the chin, neck, and cheeks, the upper arms and above the breast, the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs, and the knees, calves, and ankles. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn’t respond to dieting and exercise.

body-lifting Scar Revision

If you have a scar that is raised, red or lumpy, this is not normal and can be improved. Of course everyone scars differently, and scars take about 18 months to mature. A good quality scar should be flat, not puckered or raised, and should fade to either just a shade lighter or darker than your skin tone. If you are concerned by the appearance of a scar, whether it is caused by an accident, or by previous surgery, then chances this can be improved.
