Body Procedures overview
Which procedures does this include?
We can use liposuction to treat any areas of the body that carry unwanted excess fat including the hips, abdomen, buttocks, upper arms, breasts and neck. We would only recommend using liposuction to remove localised areas of fat; it is not the right course of treatment for losing large amounts of weight or cellulite.
Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty)
This procedure is for patients who have excessive skin, fat and stretch marks on the abdomen, commonly as the result of having children. Patients that opt for this procedure may have also lost their waistline and have divarication (separation) of the midline muscles giving further bulge to the tummy. This procedure does result in some weight removal but it is primarily for re-shaping the abdomen and not a means of treating obesity.
Upper Arm Tightening (Brachioplasty)
Upper Arm Tightening (Brachioplasty) treats loose skin and droop in the upper arms, which can be a result of weight loss, age or following liposuction.
Thigh Lift Surgery
We can carry out a thigh lift to treat loose skin and droop in the inner thigh or buttock area that can result from weight loss, age or following liposuction.
Labial problems can be a cause of embarrassment or discomfort to many women of different ages. Although a common occurrence following childbirth, it can also be an issue in women without children as well as in younger women. The most common concern is an elongated or hanging labia, which can effect both sides or more commonly just one side. We understand this can cause embarrassment or discomfort, and as a result may affect your relationship with a partner.
Lymphedema is swelling of a body part due to the blockage or absence of lymphatic channels. Removal of lymph nodes as part of cancer treatment is the most common cause of secondary lymphedema. This would see arm swelling after some cancer treatments or leg swelling following some gynaecological cancer surgery.
