Regardless of how much you exercise or diet, it is unlikely that you will ever be able to entirely remove this excess skin and fat through hard work and willpower alone.
A mini tummy tuck is, as it sounds, usually a relatively less extensive procedure than the full tummy tuck. The incision will be made solely across your lower abdomen before any fat and excess skin is removed.
In only a few weeks, you could be back to having a stomach that closely resembles your pre-baby figure - or even having your flattest tummy ever!
Of course, with any procedure, your health has to be the top priority. With Liberate, you can choose your own surgeon, all of whom are all qualified and experienced members of BAAPS and/or BAPRAS.
Every aspect of the process will be covered in your initial consultation and you will be encouraged to ask questions. Liberate symbolises honesty, professionalism and dedication to giving you the results you want.
Once you have chosen your surgeon, there are a number of ways to make contact and arrange your initial consultation. You can telephone the Liberate treatment enquiry number 0800 612 4848;
alternatively you can send your questions via the contact us page or request a call back and a member of the Liberate team will contact you to answer any questions you may have and book your appointment.
The next step is to meet the surgeon of your choice. It is likely he/ she consults at two or three different hospitals; we can help you determine which location would be most convenient for you.
During an initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you your concerns and examine you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.
He/ She will comprehensively explain what is involved in your procedure and discuss any possible risks associated with the procedure. This will be your first chance to ask all those questions!
Be sure to ask to see the surgeon’s before and after photographs. He/ She will be able to show you photographs of patients in a similar situation to yourself. This can be very useful for you to view the surgeon’s previous results to get an idea of what can be achieved.
Following your initial consultation, your surgeon will ask you to take time to think over all the information you have been given and talk it over with your friends and family. It is best practice for the surgeon to invite you back for a second consultation before you go ahead with any surgery.
This is a good opportunity to ask any questions that may have arisen since your first appointment. The surgeon will go through the procedure in more detail and ensure you have realistic expectations of the results possible.
When all your questions and concerns have been answered, the surgeon’s secretary will arrange a convenient date for your surgery. Try to avoid any important dates and events which may clash with your recovery period.
Each patient is different and it is difficult to predict how long your recovery will take. If you have young children make sure you have appropriate child care in place in order for you to recuperate and relax at home without having to look after the children.
With Liberate surgeons, you can rest assured that you will be looked after: before, during, following your surgery and beyond.
All Liberate surgeons make it a priority to see you following your surgery and are available for follow-up appointments.
You’ll be seen by the surgeon who operated on you – not a nurse or a different surgeon. It’s important to us that you see the surgeon you know already.
At Liberate, aftercare is for life.
