A tummy tuck is also known as abdominoplasty and is a cosmetic surgery procedure which is designed to make the abdomen appear flatter and more contoured. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdominal region and may also be combined with abdominal muscle tightening when these have become weakened by pregnancy. A tummy tuck is one of the most popular procedures for women who have undergone dramatic weight loss or have experienced childbirth. Women often find they have more than just excessive fat and the loose skin can only be corrected with a tummy tuck and not just liposuction on its own.
Centre for Surgery is proud to be home to some of the best tummy tuck surgeons in the UK with the expertise to carry out all types of tummy tuck including the Brazilian tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck and the Fleur de Lis tummy tuck.
Dr Ertan Erel GMC Number: 4561026
Dr Erel is a highly experienced consultant plastic surgeon with over 25 years of plastic surgery experience gained at some of the U.K.’s busiest units. Dr Erel is an expert in tummy tuck surgery after massive weight loss. In many cases, patients may require a body lift which is also known as a belt lobectomy to significant amounts of loose skin as a result of significant weight loss. Dr Erel has pioneered the two-stage body lift which involves an extended abdominoplasty performed in the first stage followed by a buttock and outer thigh lift as a second-stage procedure for the most effective tummy tuck results. A two-stage procedure carries a lower risk of complications compared with a single-stage belt lipectomy procedure and is easily carried out as a day case which means that patients can go home later the same day.
Dr Omar Tillo GMC Number: 6046095
Dr Tillo is a specialist breast and body contouring surgeon in London and has over 20 years of surgical experience. Dr Tillo is an expert in the Brazilian tummy tuck procedure at Centre for Surgery in London. The Brazilian tummy tuck differs from a full tummy tuck in that it involves combining liposuction with a tummy tuck and is appropriate for patients who have both an excess of skin and fat. Liposuction is first carried out to extract fat from the flanks and waist region and is able to thin the abdominal flap prior to skin removal. The benefits of the procedure include a more sculpted appearance and a flatter abdomen. The risks of complications after a Brazilian tummy tuck are lower compared with other types of abdominoplasty and are routinely carried out as a day case procedure at our Baker Street clinic.
Dr Alok Misra GMC Number: 4207564
Dr Misra is a highly experienced consultant plastic surgeon with expertise in the full range of abdominoplasty techniques including mini-abdominoplasty. Dr Misra takes time to carefully assess his patient’s expectations to select the most appropriate surgical technique to achieve the best outcomes.
