Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the tummy and tighten / reshape it to reduce the bulge and flatten the tummy.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure usually done to reduce the size the labia minora — skin folds that surround your urethra and vagina. Excess skin can get twisted and pinched, causing discomfort during exercise, physical activities and intercourse.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.
A serious package of surgical procedures aimed at returning a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy state. A skilled cosmetic surgeon can help address the effects of childbearing, restoring a woman’s pre-baby shape or even improving upon it through personalized procedures for the breasts and body.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
- Safety is paramount, so patients must be in good general health, and preferably Non Smokers – more so for some procedures than others.
- Pictures emailed to me as small jpeg files are invaluable in assessing the degree of the “problem”, and for surgical planning and quoting.
- Avoid: All medication containing aspirin, anti-inflammatories or Arnica for at least 2 weeks prior to any surgery – these all interfere with blood clotting.
- Most operations are performed under deep IV sedation by a certified anaesthetist, as day cases. The exception to this is a full tummy tuck, full rhinoplasty, and large volume liposuction, which usually require an overnight stay, or longer.
- Plan your trip sensibly: You need to be in Cape Town for at least 2-3 days prior to any surgery, and up to 3 weeks (average of 10 days) post op, depending on the procedure
