Tummy Tuck

Contouring your abdominal profile

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Firmer, flatter abdomen

Our skin is fairly resilient, but lack of exercise, bad eating habits, weight loss and aging can change our physique for the worse. Abdominoplasty, or as more commonly known, tummy tuck comes at the rescue when diet and exercise prove unable to address sagging, weakened or separated abdominal muscles, excess skin and fat gathered around the midsection.

Abdominoplasty cosmetically reshapes and redefines the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the rectus muscles, leaving an abdominal profile that is flatter and firmer. The operation may include surgical resection of excess skin and adipose tissue, as well as liposuction (Lipo-abdominoplasty). It is also an ideal procedure for women left with excess abdominal skin following childbirth. Abdominoplasty may be one part of the mommy makeover procedure, which may include liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lift to restore a post-pregnancy figure.

Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure and applies to patients who are close to their ideal weight and are healthy and active. Smoking is an important factor to consider for preventing surgical complications. Dr. Panayi always carefully reviews all these parameters to ensure that you are in the best possible condition before surgery.

Dr Panayi is a firm believer in tailored solutions that fit the specific unique characteristics of every patient. In order to achieve this, a range of careful measurements is undertaken before the procedure, together with extensive photo-documentation of the target areas. Furthermore, Dr. Panayi always performs a pre-operative 3D simulation of the operation, so that you have a clear idea of what to expect after the procedure. Once your individual operative plan is completed, it is then followed diligently in the operating room. Performed with extraordinary attention to detail and an unparalleled artistic eye, Dr. Panayi takes special care to ensure minimal scarring and an exceptionally natural-looking end-result.
