Pregnancy, weight loss and the natural ageing process can all cause the abdominal muscles and the skin on the tummy to become weak and loose, which can’t be tightened through exercise, meaning for many people surgery is the best option to help achieve a smoother, tighter abdomen.
A popular choice to help achieve a smoother silhouette is the tummy tuck procedure, which the experts at The Harley Medical Group have been offering as a solution for 30 years, and who will guide all patient’s through the process, from the initial consultation, through to surgery.
The tummy tuck procedure takes around two hours and usually requires a one to two night stay in hospital. The procedure entails the Surgeon repositioning and tightening the tummy muscles, and removing any excess skin, so the abdomen is much tighter, creating a much sleeker tummy.
Following the surgery, patients are advised to rest and avoid strain on the abdomen for up to six weeks, to ensure a full recovery. Every patient will have their own, personal Nurse Counsellor throughout the whole process, who offers expert advice and guidance during every step of the journey.
Gemma Layton, Tummy Tuck patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Growing up, I was lucky to be naturally slim, and so was always confident with my body and how I looked. However, after having three children, my tummy skin and muscles gradually became much looser, and I became very conscious of my body, hiding my shape under baggy clothes.
I decided to have a tummy tuck after exploring my options for a couple of years. It was a big decision for me, but I’m so pleased I did it. The results are fantastic, and I feel so much more comfortable in my skin.”
