As every operation has risks and complications it is vital you are being looked after by a fully qualified surgeon. If you aren’t sure about your choice always seek a second opinion from a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

Surprisingly, many doctors call themselves plastic surgeons without ever training in the field. Check they are members of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

Tummy tuck

Tummy tuck Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a surgical option for people with excess skin around their bellies who would like to regain a flatter tummy. This usually applies to women following childbirth or people who have lost a large amount of weight. There may be a large hernia in the abdominal muscles which needs to be repaired and this happens at the same time as removing the excess skin. Sometimes if there are a few pockets of fat deposition tummy tucks can be combined with liposuction.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a technique which has been available for many years but has recently been refined and heavily promoted such that it is getting far more interest. It involves removing fat from your body, processing that fat to remove the water and oil, then gently injecting it back into another area of you body using many needle passes so that hopefully the majority of the fat develops a blood supply and lasts permanently.
