Extended Abdominoplasty

An extended abdominoplasty is as the name says: it involves the removal of excess fat and skin from the abdomen, thighs and the back. It is also known as ‘circumferential’ surgery.

It is an ideal procedure for getting rid of those ‘love handles’ and other unsightly fat deposits.

It can be combined with other procedures such as a lower body lift, breast uplift or breast reduction and liposuction.

This surgery is usually performed under a general anaesthetic and due to its extensive nature, will take around 3 hours to complete.

It is a popular choice of procedure for those patients who have undergone obesity surgery and have lost vast amounts of weight. The results of this are likely to be large, sagging folds of fat and skin.

This is one variation of the ‘tummy tuck’ procedure. Other variations include the partial or mini abdominoplasty and the full abdominoplasty.
