Types of Body Surgery

Tummy tuck
Liposculpture
Fat transfer

Tummy tuck

What it does:

Excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdomen and stretched muscles are tightened to achieve a firmer appearance. For patients who do not require a dramatic change, a less invasive ‘mini tummy tuck’ is an option.

Why patients consider it: 

To remedy the effects of pregnancy, age or dramatic weight loss. Patients should be at a healthy, stable weight before pursuing this surgery.

Complementary procedures: :

A tummy tuck may be combined with a breast reduction, facelift or liposuction, depending on the individual patient’s circumstances.

Risks and complications:

All surgery involves a degree of risk and possible complications. Please take the time to review the risks and complications associated with a tummy tuck.

Why patients consider it: 

Despite their best efforts, some people are unable to shift small areas of fatty deposits from parts of their body, such as the inner thighs, outer thighs (‘saddlebags’), and buttocks, leading to frustration and dissatisfaction with appearance.

Complementary procedures: :

Liposculpture may be combined with a tummy tuck, thigh reduction or arm reduction, depending on the individual patient’s circumstances.

Risks and complications:

All surgery involves a degree of risk and possible complications. Please take the time to review the risks and complications associated with lipsculpture.

Fat Transfer

What it does:

Fat cells are moved from one part of the patient’s body to another, using a cannula to harvest the fat and a needle to reinject it into the new location.

Why patients consider it: 

Patients may choose to undergo a fat transfer procedure to restore volume to the face. Harvested fat can also be used to enhance or restore contours on other areas of the body.

Complementary procedures:

Fat transfer can be combined with facial surgery to revitalise your appearance, as well as other procedures to restore contour.

Risks and complications:

All surgery involves a degree of risk and possible complications. Please take the time to review the risks and complications associated with fat transfer.
