Why choose Reshape and Restore for your cosmetic surgery procedure in Bristol?

The founders of Reshape and Restore, Mr Umraz  Khan and Mr Thomas Chapman are highly respected cosmetic surgeons. Both men combine successful careers as NHS Consultants with their busy private practice. Their surgical expertise gives their patients amazing results and the full abdominoplasty and mini abdominoplasty, or partial tummy tuck, are frequently performed procedures at the Bristol clinic.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman understand that excess skin and fat around the middle can seriously affect self-esteem and make you too self-conscious to engage in sports or wear the clothes you like. Abdominoplasty surgery can reshape your body and restore your zest for life.


Causes of excess skin and fat on the stomach

tummy tuck Bristol


Overstretched abdominal skin and muscles are common legacies of pregnancy. The tissues may not spring back into place after your baby has been born and this lack of elasticity worsens with each pregnancy.


As we age our skin and abdominal muscles often become more lax and our body begins to lose its definition. This can often be a problem in the middle part of the body.

In addition, many women notice that they lose their defined waistline after menopause, as fat begins to be stored around their abdominal area rather than in the breasts or buttocks as in younger women.

Weight loss

Many people who work hard to lose significant amounts of weight are disappointed to discover that their skin does not shrink back as their fat stores melt away, leaving them with large amounts of sagging skin.

Whatever the cause, tummy tuck surgery at our Bristol clinic can restore a smooth silhouette.

What happens during a tummy tuck in Bristol?

During the tummy tuck your surgeon will remove excess skin and fat and tighten the stomach muscles. This will be achieved through a small incision in your abdomen.

Your surgeon may also use liposuction to remove excess fat if necessary.

If your tummy tuck or abdominoplasty involves the removal of a large amount of loose skin, your surgeon may reposition your belly button to give a natural appearance.

With your abdominal wall tightened and slack skin removed, your abdominal area will have a much more sculpted and toned profile.


How long will it take to recover from an abdominoplasty?

Tummy tuck procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and you will stay in the hospital in Bristol overnight. Your surgeon will assess you before you leave and your progress will be checked regularly at follow-up appointments.

An abdominoplasty procedure is major surgery, and it is important that you rest and care for your body to allow it to heal. Your abdominal area will be sore and you will need to wear a support garment for a few weeks.

It is advisable to book a few weeks off work and to avoid any strenuous exercise or return to driving until your surgeon tells you that you are ready.

After about six weeks the swelling will have subsided and you will be delighted with your flatter abdomen.

Am I a good candidate for abdominoplasty surgery in Bristol?

Our cosmetic surgeons, Mr Khan and Mr Chapman, assess patients carefully to ensure that plastic surgery is appropriate.

During your first consultation, your surgeon will discuss whether tummy tuck surgery can help you achieve the body you want and whether a partial or full tummy tuck would be best. Sometimes liposuction can be used during a tummy tuck abdominoplasty to achieve the best results and this will be discussed with you too.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman always ensure that patients have realistic expectations of surgery and what it can achieve. They also like to give patients full details of the procedure, its risks and the recovery period.

All patients have a second consultation, which is another opportunity to ask questions and air any concerns before they commit to surgery.

Mr Khan, Mr Chapman and all the staff at Reshape and Restore Bristol understand that patients can be nervous about surgery and will make you feel comfortable and confident about your choices.
