Abdominoplasty | Tummy Tuck
During a tummy tuck, we remove the excess skin and fat from around the belly. In addition, we tighten the connective tissue to strengthen the muscles for a tighter, more sculpted appearance.
The tummy tuck is typically performed on patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin. However, there are several reasons why one might opt for an abdominoplasty.
Mr Khan performs all aspects of aesthetic surgery to the abdomen, including the removal of excess tissue (abdominoplasty). The specific surgical approach will be tailored to your individual needs and will address the structural and aesthetic requirements of your abdomen. Repairs of the abdominal wall musculature and high-definition liposuction are combined with abdominoplasty to bring more definition to the abdomen and achieve the optimal aesthetic outcome for you.

How does weight loss Cause Excess Skin?
When you gain weight, your skin stretches to accommodate the extra volume of fat. However, the skin has a limited amount of elasticity, and it stretches too far, for too long, it can lose some of its ability to snap back into place once you’ve lost underlying fat. This can result in excess skin, which may appear saggy or loose.
Additionally, if you lose a significant amount of weight quickly, such as through bariatric surgery or crash dieting, the skin may not have enough time to adjust to the smaller body size and may not shrink as much as you would like, resulting in excess skin.
