Loose or excess skin in the abdominal area is an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition, but Anca Breahna, one of the leading tummy tuck surgeons in Cheshire, offers a surgical solution to this unsightly problem.
Significant weight loss or pregnancy can cause the skin and muscle of the abdomen or ‘tummy’ to become slack. The extra tissue can be uncomfortable, and embarrassing, even making it difficult to fit into your clothes.
The solution is a tummy tuck, sometimes called an abdominoplasty, which can create a flat abdomen. Contact Anca Breahna’s clinic in Cheshire today for more information on tummy tuck surgery.

What happens during a tummy tuck?
Miss Breahna will give you a tauter, flatter stomach by removing excess skin and fat from your abdomen. Carrying extra weight in the mid and lower abdomen can cause the muscles to stretch and divide. Miss Breahna can rectify this problem during the abdominoplasty by tightening the muscles. Liposuction can be performed simultaneously to remove fat from the hips, flanks, and pubic area, achieving even better results.
Miss Breahna uses three techniques to restore a flat stomach area:
The Traditional Tummy Tuck
This approach is best for men and women in good health who have a lot of loose skin around the middle of their torso. As removing a large amount of tissue is involved, your surgeon may also need to reposition your belly button to ensure the best result.
Partial or Mini Tummy Tuck
Partial tummy tucks are suitable for patients who are only concerned about a small amount of excess skin below the level of their belly button. It involves more minor surgery than the traditional tummy tuck, and the risk of scarring is lower.
The extended tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is for patients who have worked hard to lose a great deal of weight and then found that they are left with a significant amount of loose skin and slack muscle around the torso. Miss Breahna will remove the extra tissue and tighten the muscles to ensure a smooth finish with a redefined shape.
Am I a good candidate for abdominoplasty?
If you are unhappy about loose skin and muscle around your abdomen then you should consider a tummy tuck. Surgery can transform your body by giving you a firmer abdomen and a flatter profile making you much more confident about your body. You will be able to wear fitting clothes and be less self-conscious about playing sports and going to the gym.
The tummy tuck is ideal for people already at a healthy weight and should not be considered a weight-loss method. Before recommending surgery, Miss Breahna will consider your full medical history and decide on your suitability for the procedure.
When will I see the results of my tummy tuck?
You should see the benefit of surgery after twelve weeks. You will need to wear a supportive garment 24 hours a day for the first six weeks.
Abdominoplasty is a significant surgery and you will need to allow yourself time to rest and heal. Miss Breahna will see you for follow-up appointments for the first year after your operation and will advise you on when you can return to your normal activities.
