Cosmetic surgery of the abdomen, also called "abdominoplasty" or "tummy tuck" is designed to flatten, firm and smooth the abdomen. This procedure tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall if they have weakened or separated after pregnancy, and removes loose abdominal skin, which may be the result of weight loss and excess fat. It can improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially those located below the navel.
If you are considering abdominoplasty, a personal consultation with Mr Mutimer is the best way to obtain the information you will need. Call our office to make an appointment on (03) 9592 0522 If you plan to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, please discuss this with Mr Mutimer.
Initial consultation: Meet Mr Mutimer for a 30 min consultation where you will discuss your abdominoplasty surgery in detail, the technique to be used and expected recovery time. Photos will be taken. Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss potential dates for your surgery.
Pre-operative appointment: 2 weeks prior to your abdominoplasty surgery you will meet Dr Mutimer again for a final consult. You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Measurements will be taken for your post-surgical garment (girdle or binder). Payment for your procedure is also finalised.
