“The operation has made a huge difference. It is only six weeks after surgery and I am looking forward to getting back to my usual exercise”.

MJ, Age 42, Torquay, Devon, Abdominoplasty and Liposuction. 

This patient underwent a full abdominoplasty with liposuction. The result shown and scar is at six weeks. The scar can be expected to fade over the next 6 to 12 months. By performing a full abdominoplasty it is possible to stretch the skin which is folded above the umbilicus and bring it down to the pubic area. It depends how much laxity there is in the skin as to the scar position or whether a short vertical component will also be needed which can be useful to lower the longer horizontal scar. 

Most patients who undergo this procedure, unless they are very slim, will benefit from some additional liposuction to the central abdomen and hips which can be performed at the same time. It is important to have the operation when you are very near your target ideal weight.

You can see that there is some laxity in the suprapubic area as well. This will usually be improved with an abdominoplasty but if it is excessive then a secondary procedure at additional cost may be required. This can usually be carried out under a local anaesthetic, depending on patient preference, to minimise the cost of this operation. Sometimes an additional lower scar in the pubic area is needed. This is always carried out as a secondary procedure depending on how much elevation of the suprapubic area is achieved with the abdominoplasty. This patient had a good improvement of the suprapubic area and did not need any additional procedures.

“Overall I am really pleased. I had forgotten what I looked like before”.

LN, Age 42, Exeter, Devon

This patient underwent a full abdominoplasty with liposuction after a gastric band. Care was taken to avoid the port site in the upper abdomen during the procedure. Post operatively there was an area of wound infection which required some revisional surgery to revise a short section of the scar. At the same time she had a little more liposuction and a suprapubic lift. The scar can usually be hidden in appropriately selected underwear or swim wear.

A Fleur de lys abdominoplasty can also be used in this situation which results in an additional vertical scar which can be unsightly but does help to take out some additional lateral laxity. This will be discussed during your consultation depending on your preferences.

With large weight loss the suprapubic area will generally be improved to some extent, but can still sag down. A second procedure may be needed to address this area either under local or general anaesthetic.

“It took about 6 weeks to get completely back to normal which was a little longer than I expected but I am really pleased with the overall result.”

MY, Age 34, Torquay, Devon

This patient underwent an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction. Just under 900g of tissue was excised which is about 2lbs. In addition a similar amount was removed by liposuction to the hips and the remaining abdominal tissue. Overall about 4lbs of tissue was removed during the operation. At the same time the anterior abdominal wall wase tightend which is often a little loose after pregnancy. This can feel a little tight for a few weeks afterwards. Generally at least 6 weeks is needed to return to full activities, as this is quite a big operation. Drains are used and most patients stay in hospital for 2 nights after surgery.  The scar is quite red at 6 weeks after surgery but will fade over the next 6 to 12 months.

“I would highly recommend surgery by Mr Oliver“

MN, Age 40, Exeter, Devon, Abdominoplasty and Liposuction

This patient underwent abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck) and liposuction using a tumescent (wet) technique removing 1.4 Litres of fat and fluid.

The abdominal skin excess was then excised weighing a further  1.4 Kg. The scars are still a little red but can be expected to fade over the next 12 months. Abdominoplasty is often combined with liposuction to achieve the best results.. In addition the abdominal wall has been tightened with sutures during the procedure as it is often a little lax after pregnancy. These are the results after 2 months. Mr Oliver will advise you during your consultation about the best combination of techniques that are suitable for you.

“It has taken 30 years off my abdominal appearance. It was absolutely worth doing, I have more energy and wish I had done it sooner.“

NM, Age 67, Brixham, Devon,  Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

This patient underwent an abdominoplasty with liposuction and tightening of the abdominal wall. 1.5 Kg of tissue was removed from the lower abdomen and a further 1200 mls of liposuction. The results shown are at two months and the scars can be expected to fade over the coming 6 to 12 months. Modest weight loss usually helps to achieve the optimum result following abdominoplasty and liposuction however it is equally important to be near your target weight at the time of the operation.

“Just what I was expecting and I’m really pleased with the result“

RK, Age 47, Newton Abbot, Devon,  Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

This patient underwent an abdominoplasty removing 1.2 kg of tissue along with liposuction to the central abdomen and hip areas of a further 1000mls to help achieve the overall result.

Liposuction is usually needed with an abdominoplasty to reduce the hip area and to help contour the lateral ends of the incisions.  Generally most people will also have a little central fat in the abdomen and this needs to be removed to achieve a smooth contour around the umbilicus. The underlying abdominal wall has also been tightened which can often be a little lax after pregnancy.

“I am really happy. I had very little pain, the liposuction was a little uncomfortable and I would definitely recommend some lactulose post-op.”

MA, Age 32, Torquay, Devon, Abdominoplasty & liposuction

This lady underwent an abdominoplasty with liposuction. 1.4 kg (about 3 lbs) of skin and fat was removed from the lower abdomen along with an additional 1400mls of liposuction to the central abdomen and hip areas. The results shown are at 6 weeks.  With an abdominoplasty it is important to lose as much weight as possible prior to surgery to get the best results. Often some liposuction will be helpful as in this case. Generally 2-3 weeks will be needed for recovery and perhaps a little more with a physical job.
