Considering Tummy Liposuction for your Mummy Tummy? Talk to the team at Cosmos Clinic for a caring and understanding approach…
Tummy liposuction is a non-surgical procedure to reduce fat deposits in the abdominal area and tighten loose skin in that area. It is an alternative to the traditional adbominioplasty or tummy tuck. Some of the reasons for considering tummy liposuction may include:
- Decreasing excess fat after pregnancy that cannot be reduced from exercising and dieting alone;
- Reducing loose and sagging skin from rapid weight loss that is resistant to exercise and diet;
- Trying to create a more balanced and proportionate figure;
- Decreasing unsightly stretch marks and other scarring; and
- Increasing body confidence and promoting an improved self-image through a flatter stomach.
What is Tummy Liposuction?
Tummy liposuction is an alternative to adbominioplasty, better known as the tummy tuck. It is a ‘walk in walk out’ procedure designed to flatten, tighten and produce a more contoured stomach through cosmetic surgery. As well as decreased surgery times, you are not left with a hip-to-hip scar that is typical of a traditional tummy tuck.
The surgery dubbed “Mummy Tummy Magic” because of its popularity as a post-pregnancy procedure, involves the use of Liquid Liposuction to remove fat, and the use of an ultra thin laser fibre for skin tightening, that is placed just below the surface of the skin. The laser energy heats up the all important “collagen fibres” causing them to instantaneously contract resulting in a tightening effect on the tummy.
The results are immediate with Tummy Liposuction, however you will see continued improved results over the next 6-8 weeks with a considerable improvement in the overall skin quality. The procedure requires only a light sedation and a local anesthetic and takes roughly 45 minutes with most patients returning to normal activities the following day.
Benefits of Tummy Liposuction
For most patients, tummy liposuction alone is sufficient to correct the problem of excess skin and may present a better option for some patients than adbominioplasty. Not only is the procedure less invasive and less traumatic than a traditional tummy tuck, tummy liposuction requires less incisions, less scarring and no displacement of the belly button. The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic minimising the risks and side effects of a general anesthesia, allowing for a rapid recovery time.
Tummy liposuction can provide some excellent benefits in terms of your physical health and self-worth as well as your emotional wellbeing. You should ensure that you fully understand the procedure and ask lots of questions whilst you are deciding whether this is the right solution for you. Finally, the decision should be yours and yours only however, having made the right decision for you, you will be on the path to joining the hundreds of women and men who undergo tummy liposuction every year who are delighted with the results.
Also, fat removed by liposuction is gone permanently. The treated areas will not regain fat in that area as the fat cells are removed. Refer to our Fat Facts After Liposuction page for more information in relation to this.
After undertaking tummy liposuction at Cosmos Clinic, you must participate in post opt treatments. This will ensure that you achieve the best results possible after the procedure.
On average, 3-6 post opt treatments are required, starting at day 5 after your procedure. On going home after the procedure, you will not be bed-ridden, and encourage you to move about and not be stagnate. Everybody heals differently, you know your own body and suggest you listen to it and give yourself time to heal properly. Normal daily activities can be returned to the day after the procedure but again please must avoid vigorous activities such as exercise or sports. For more information click here.
