Abdomen

For Women

The abdomen is a problem area for many women, particularly after childbirth. Unwanted accumulations of fat can make clothes difficult to fit, it may be impossible to buy clothes ‘off the rack’. Liposculpture is often extremely helpful in these situations, and skin laxity is rarely a problem after the procedure. In fact, it is possible to remove quite large overhangs of skin without the need to resort to a ‘tummy tuck’ where the skin is cut and an ugly scar remains. Usually the upper and lower sections of the abdomen are treated at the same time. This helps get rid of the midriff area just below the rib cage which bulges when sitting. Any size of abdomen can be treated with liposculpture, small abdomens can be flattened for a ‘washboard stomach’ and pot bellies removed.

Often liposculpture of the abdomen can be combined with treatment of the hips and waist and the size of the whole torso is reduced, creating a waist, getting rid of that square look and giving the whole central section a real rejuvenation.

Even if the skin and tissue appears loose with extra skin in folds over the abdomen, liposculpture can vastly reduce the excess skin with no cuts and thus minimum disruption to a busy schedule.

Look at the results…

In general men’s unwanted fatty deposits are most commonly over the abdomen and the flanks or ‘love handles’. They tend to increase with age and just about every man has them to some extent. Big or small, reduction of these areas will make a huge improvement to shape. There is less excess to hang over the belt and the improvement in profile when you stand in front of the mirror can be dramatic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for liposcupture to the abdomen?

Anyone with excess abdominal fat can benefit from this procedure. The amount of fat that can be removed depends on the volume present to start with, but a general approximation would be about 70% of the volume present. So regardless of your size the end result will be much smaller.

Is anyone not a good candidate for abdominal liposculpture?

People with hernias over the areas to be treated will need to have these repaired before the procedure. Sometimes men have a large proportion of the abdominal fat within the abdomen itself ( behind the muscles) and not in front. They are less suitable for liposculpture, but still may benefit to some extent.

Is it permanent?

Yes, the reduction in the abdomen is permanent, provided that your weight remains stable no more than a weight gain of a few kilos after the procedure.

Are there any scars or changes to sensation?

The small access holes are 1-2mm wide. There are usually 4-5 for treatment of the abdomen, but they can be hidden at the lower margin of the abdomen and in the umbilicus. They are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks. As all the instruments used in this surgery are quite blunt, there is generally no change to how the abdomen feels after the first few weeks.

What support garments are required?

A special lycra bodysuit compressive chest garment is used for two weeks or so after the procedure.

How long does the procedure take?

Most abdominal liposuction procedures take from between 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete.

How much time will I need off…?

In general you should plan on taking 1-2 days off work or slightly longer if your work is active. It would be about 3 weeks before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.

And the cost?

The cost of this procedure varies according to the areas that require treatment and whether the area is treated alone or in conjunction with other areas. (This is most common.) For an accurate costing, please use the online consultation or make an appointment by phoning (02) 99061555.
