If you are struggling to lose excess fat on your belly area, you may want to consider liposuction in London. This procedure targets stubborn areas of fat that have not responded well to diet and exercise.
This treatment is a great way to reshape your body and create a slimmer silhouette. It can also be combined with other procedures to improve results even more.
Liposuction is a great way to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. It can be used to target fat in areas such as the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen and arms. It can also treat gynecomastia (fatty swellings in the chest area).
This procedure is carried out by a trained medical practitioner in an accredited clinic, usually under local or general anaesthetic. A tumescent fluid is often injected into the body to swell up the fat cells before removal, resulting in less blood loss and therefore quicker recovery times.
After the surgery, you will need to wear compression garments to help minimise swelling and promote healing. We can also supply you with painkillers to help with any post-operative pain.
Depending on the area being treated, results of liposuction may appear immediately after surgery. However, swelling and bruising can take a while to go down. It is very important to follow the advice and recommendations of your surgeon to achieve a good and speedy recovery.
A tummy tuck is a procedure that can remove excess skin, tighten the abdominal muscles and create a more contoured abdomen. The surgery can also be used to repair weakened or separated abdominal muscle walls.
It can be carried out under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with sedation, depending on your health and the complexity of your procedure. It can be performed as a standalone operation or in conjunction with liposuction.
In a standard abdominoplasty, your surgeon will make an incision horizontally across the lower tummy to remove excess skin and fat as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. Your surgeon will also reposition your belly button.
A mini tummy tuck is a different procedure where the incision is made just above your pubic region and less skin is removed around the lower stomach area. This is a great option for patients with minimal skin redundancy and a small amount of fat. Your surgeon will determine whether this is a good option for you during your initial consultation.
One of the most popular surgeries for sculpting a flatter stomach, a tummy tuck (abbdominoplasty) reduces excess skin and fat from the abdomen to give a smoother, more toned belly. It also tightens abdominal muscles and improves the appearance of stretch marks.
For tummy tucks, surgeons make incisions along the lower abdomen and around the umbilicus, removing excess skin and fat. They then repair separated abdominal muscles, if necessary.
Surgical drains are placed in the incision area to remove excess fluid after surgery. They can be uncomfortable and need to be emptied frequently.
A drain-free tummy tuck allows the procedure to be done in a shorter, more comfortable recovery time. It also results in a thinner, lower scar.
The recovery process after tummy tuck surgery can take from 4 to 6 weeks. It’s best to avoid strenuous physical activity during this time. However, you may return to low-intensity exercise 5-7 days after your procedure. This can include gym work, but it should be done slowly to minimise undue tension on the incision line and promote wound healing.
Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal fat removal is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess buccal fat, which gives the face a more chiselled and slender appearance. This treatment is a good antidote for people with over-sized cheeks or jowls and is a popular choice amongst women in their 20s and 30s who are unhappy with the size of their cheeks.
The procedure is a minimally invasive surgical technique and can be performed under local anaesthetic. It is a straightforward surgery that can give very positive results and improve confidence.
In most patients, recovery from the surgery is quick and pain-free. However, bruising is common and will take up to 7-10 days to subside.
Your doctor will give you a mouth rinse after your surgery and you should be on a liquid diet for 5-7 days to reduce the risk of infection. After that, you can eat normal food. You may also notice swelling in your cheeks, which will go down as you heal.
