The tummy suffers the most during pregnancy; loosening skin tone, visible stretch marks and excess fat deposits. Sometimes, muscular damage may also occur. Tummy repair is available with non-surgical options, minimally invasive procedures and surgery.
The non-surgical tummy tuck is a procedure done to address the loose skin, excess fat and stretch marks of the abdomen. Procedure options include the Velashape 2, Thermalift and Freeze treatments. Often requiring more than one session for optimal results, these are state-of-the-art medical devices that promise results without risk.
TUMMY TIGHTENING / ENHANCEMENT
Minimally invasive tummy enhancement is done using a fibre optic guided laser to melt the fat and tighten the skin. Stretch marks are also reduced significantly in this procedure performed under local anaesthesia. Usually a maximum of 3 sessions may be required, but results are seen with a single treatment. Risks are also very minimal and results are comparable to those of surgery.
Surgical modalities of treatment include liposuction with skin tightening and abdominoplasty. As with all surgery, these carry the associated benefits and risks that will need to be fully discussed as part of the consultation.
