Abdominoplasty Surgery Essex

What Is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty surgery Essex helps patients achieve a flatter, firmer tummy and is also known as a tummy tuck. Abdominoplasty surgery Essex will remove the excess fat and skin from the abdomen, to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Abdominoplasty can be considered both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, as it tightens the muscles on the inside to correct any underlying weakness, as well as removing excess skin and fat to create a smoother appearance.

During Abdominoplasty surgery Essex, the tissue is usually removed as an oval shape from the lower part of the tummy, leaving a scar that runs from hip to hip, just above the pubic hair line. There is also a scar around the belly button. The “Brazilian Tummy Tuck” is a combination of liposuction and skin and fat removal. Mr Sierakowski will help you decide which type of tummy tuck is right for you.

Who Is Abdominoplasty Surgery Essex Suitable For?

Sometimes after having children you might find yourself looking for the ‘old you’, or after a transformative weight loss, you want to take the final leap to your desired aesthetic. From the initial consultation, Mr Sierakowski will work to understand your motivations and to deliver the results you deserve.

Abdominoplasty Surgery Essex is popular with people seeking to remove stubborn skin and fat from the tummy area, and those who want to achieve a smoother profile.
