Our body contour approach seeks to refine shape and provide muscle definition, often using a combination of open surgery and liposculpture with a tireless attention to detail. We are often consulted for combination procedures, such as breast rebalancing or augmentation with abdominoplasty, or mini – abdominoplasty, and thigh lift – liposuction combinations. Our approach to these bespoke surgeries is to deliver maximum effect for minimum discomfort and hidden scars. We use contemporary proven technologies, such as ultrasound guided liposculpture where required, and have assessed and incoporated newer technologies where they have a place.
All our body contour surgeries, including limb redefinition surgeries such as brachioplasty (arm reduction), and thigh lift, are planned meticulously, and undertaken with excellent anaesthetic support for maximum post operative comfort. We provide a programme of advice for postoperative recovery, and support garments to keep you comfortable and to sculpture postoperative swelling.
Post-pregnancy body recontouring.
For the Body Contour
Our philosophy is to provide a comfortable and stable rejuvenated contour of the arms, thighs, abdomen and, where relevant, the breast. Often, this comes together under the banner of ‘post pregnancy body contouring’, and can be done in combination.
Open surgery, where excess skin is removed and the underlying tissues are tightened and recontoured is often combined with liposuction approaches, where the body can be contoured and defined using natural skin elasticity for minimal scar volume reduction.
An example of post – pregnancy body recontouring, with breast augmentation to treat a ‘slack breast’, a tummy tuck to treat skin excess after childbirth, and liposuction to abdomen and thighs is shown below:
Fat transfer, and fat augmentation
Buttock lifts and augmentation
Abdominoplasty & Mini-abdominoplasty
Combination abdominoplasty and liposuction are very rewarding in
- our aim is a comfortable contoured abdomen, using open surgery and liposuction, with fitted post operative garments for a rapid recovery.
- we contour the abdomen and umbilicus with discrete placement of scars.
- diet, exercise and lifestyle matter!
Abdominoplasty and mini-abdominoplasty techniques are valuable in treating post – pregnancy abdominal contour which is resistant to diet and exercise. Our assessment will advise which abdominoplasty technique is the best for you, incorporating, or substituting liposuction where required. We incorporate advice on diet and exercise, and use proven designs of post – operative garments, in combination with good nursing care for comfort and confidence. Where necessary, skin tightening techniques can be used for a complete, refined result. Breast and abdominal combination recontouring procedures are very rewarding and we will advise when and how they may help (see ‘Breast – body contour’).
