Tummy tuck Gloucester


Sagging skin around the middle of your body can be embarrassing and uncomfortable but Reshape and Restore’s cosmetic surgical team has the solution with the tummy tuck in Gloucester.

Renowned cosmetic surgeons Mr Umraz Khan and Mr Thomas Chapman established Reshape and Restore to bring their world-class surgical skills to patients in Gloucester and the surrounding area.

Both are highly respected surgeons and their surgical expertise can reshape your body and restore your self-esteem.


Why is the Reshape and Restore Clinic different?

When choosing a cosmetic surgeon, you should consider both their surgical expertise and the rapport they create with their patients.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman certainly have an impressive breadth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of cosmetic surgery, inspiring confidence.

Both are highly respected by their peers in the medical profession and work as NHS Consultants and treat patients in their busy private practices.

However,  the aspect that makes them stand out from the crowd is their belief that they are not only treating bodies but also transforming lives by restoring self-confidence to their patients.

They are successful and in demand, because they take time to develop a relationship with their patients and take an individual approach to each procedure rather than adopting an “off the peg” surgical approach.  


What causes loose skin and muscle on the abdomen?

Having pride in one’s appearance is essential for healthy self-confidence, but you may find that over time your body changes in ways that make you dissatisfied. Sometimes the most nutritious diet and vigorous exercise regime won’t make the change you want and excess loose skin cannot be resolved without surgery.

New mothers often find that their baby bump leaves saggy skin and loose muscles on the abdomen. After a few pregnancies, this effect can be very marked and make wearing lingerie and swimwear difficult.

Women can also be affected around the menopause when hormonal changes make the body store fat around the middle for the first time rather than on the bottom and breasts, which is more typical in younger women. The tendency for the skin to lose its firmness and elasticity as part of the ageing process only makes the problem worse.

Many of the clinic’s patients have worked hard to lose significant amounts of weight but find that they are left with loose skin around the middle of their body which has been stretched too much to shrink back neatly.

The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty offers a permanent surgical solution to the issue of sagging skin on the stomach and abdomen. 

What happens during a tummy tuck in Gloucester?

During the tummy tuck, your surgeon will remove skin and fat from the abdomen and front of the stomach through an incision. The surgeon will also be able to tighten the abdominal muscles simultaneously.

Liposuction is sometimes used to remove further fat tissue.

It may be necessary to reposition your tummy button if a large amount of skin has been removed.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman will use their considerable skill to reshape, recontour and redefine your body.

What is the recovery time after a tummy tuck?

The tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure, and you should allow yourself six weeks to recover. You will need to take a few weeks off work and avoid driving until your surgeon tells you it is safe. 

As with all surgery, there will be some bruising and pain, but your discomfort will be controlled with pain relief.

Tummy tuck patients need to wear a supportive garment for a few weeks after the procedure.

Your surgeon will check that you are ready to leave the hospital. You will have follow-up appointments regularly over the next few weeks and months. 

Two months after surgery, you will start to see the benefits of your tummy tuck and will be delighted that you decided to have the procedure.

Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?

Surgery should never be undertaken lightly, and Mr Khan and Mr Chapman insist upon two pre-operative consultations with their patients.

What happens at the first consultation?

The first consultation will be a discussion between you and your surgeon about what you hope to achieve with a tummy tuck and how your goals can be achieved surgically.

Mr Khan and Mr Chapman will approach you as an individual rather than a ‘tummy tuck ‘case and will consider which surgical techniques best suit you and your concerns.

For example, you may be more suited to a mini than a full tummy tuck.

Crucially, your surgeon will take a detailed medical history and examine you to ensure that you are fit enough for surgery.

A tummy tuck is not a weight-loss procedure. The patients who achieve the best results are those who are already a healthy weight. Your surgeon may advise you to lose some weight before surgery to ensure the best outcome for you.

If possible, you will be introduced to patients who have already had the same surgery at Reshape and Restore.

The second consultation

By your second consultation with your surgeon, you will probably have decided about surgery.

You will have many questions now that you have more information about the procedure, and your surgeon will be delighted to answer them. Mr Khan and Mr Chapman will give you plenty of time to voice any anxieties you may have about your tummy tuck.

The second consultation is an opportunity for your surgeon to go through the details of the surgery again and to discuss aftercare, recovery and any potential risks.

The price of tummy tuck surgery

The typical cost of a tummy tuck is £6500, but it is impossible to guarantee this price as your tummy tuck will be as individual as you are. Your surgeon will confirm the cost of your procedure at your second consultation.
