“I am very pleased with the results of surgery on these hard to shift areas.”
“I am very happy with the result. Highly recommended.“
EN, Age 46, Torquay, Liposuction
Liposuction to the Abdomen
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty 1
“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.
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty 2
“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.
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty 3 (2 Months post operation)
“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.
Liposuction & Abdominoplasty 4
“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.
Abdominoplasty with Liposuction 5
“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.
