A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen and to tighten the abdominal muscles so that it can improve the shape of your body profile.

It is an effective procedure used to remove folds of skin left behind after losing a lot of weight, and to tighten stretched skin and muscles after pregnancy.

Additionally, the results of tummy tucks can be lasting if you maintain a healthy weight after your operation; this will result in not only a physical improvement, but also improve psychological well being and self-confidence as you will look and feel great!

It is a short procedure lasting 2 – 3 hours under general anaesthetic – meaning you will be asleep during the procedure. You will be required to stay in hospital for 2 nights so we can monitor your progress. Pain relief will be available to you to suppress any pain or discomfort you are feeling, however this may last up to 14 weeks. We recommend that you avoid any strenuous activity during recovery time.

Patient Reviews

Hi Amanda & David, I really do wish to convey my utmost gratitude in all your continuing support in aiding me through this final chapter of my body transformation. Because of your services, I am finally where I want to be and have the confidence I thought I would never have. Matt's stomach before surgeryAs you are both well aware I used to be a very large gentleman weighing in excess of 20 stone which troubled my throughout my teens. Having started to take responsibility for my weight at the age of 19 it has been a long hard slog to get down to the mere 12 stone I happily weigh today. Several years ago having lost a lot of weight, I was hanging at around the 14-15 stone mark still discontent with my appearance but happy that I had come a fair way. At that time I started to explore the options of getting the abdominoplasty and chest reduction done as I could see there was an amount of skin sagging. I knew I hadn't reached my goal weight so continued with my diet and exercise regime until finally consulting with you both late last year. Since starting to lose weight I had been forced to wear skin tight vests beneath my clothes to conceal the skin sagging around my stomach and breasts, being in a customer facing sales driven role I couldn't been seen to have a lack of confidence which always wore on me. You were always efficient, attentive and went the extra mile from start to finish in all of my dealings with you. Matt's stomach after surgeryI describe the 13TH December last year as my "rebirth" cause finally after such a long term struggle with weight it dawned on me; I didn't have to wear a skin tight vest any more, I could just be happy within myself and feel comfortable in the skin I am now in cause of the operation!! Now that we are several months down the line I must say I am so happy with Dr Jallali's work! There is minimal scarring and I face every day without having the thought in the back of my head that everyone is looking at me. Since the op I have even been, ON MY FIRST EVER, beach holiday with a group of old friends from high school. Once again I wish to thank you for the hard work and professionalism throughout.
