Abdominoplasty is a very common procedure performed at Renew Plastic Surgery

Dr David Morgan is an experienced Plastic Surgeon in Brighton who is very knowledgeable when it comes to tummy tuck procedures. Many people are confused about how tummy tucks are performed and the results that this surgery can achieve. At Renew Plastic Surgery in Brighton, we are committed to ensuring that our patients have all the facts before they choose to receive plastic surgery.

How is a tummy tuck performed?

A tummy tuck will be performed under general anaesthesia in hospital. You can expect to stay in the hospital for a few days, however the exact time will vary from person to person.  Dr David Morgan is very experienced and will take every measure possible to help ensure that the incision is made beneath the bikini line, however the placement of the incision will also depend on your particular circumstances.

Once the incision is made, excess fat will then be removed and the muscle and skin will be contoured to achieve the results you have discussed with Dr David Morgan.

Once your surgery is completed you should expect a downtime of three weeks away from work and heavy lifting should be avoided where possible for up to six weeks.

What results can I expect to achieve?

A tummy tuck can help smoothen the abdominal area and remove excess fat to create a slimmer appearance. The results of your surgery will depend on your particular circumstances; however Dr David Morgan will take you through the expected outcome prior to surgery.

When you are considering a tummy tuck it is essential that you choose a plastic surgeon who is experienced and a leader in the field
