If you’re looking to go under the knife with a cosmetic body procedure, it is important to find a qualified surgeon that has experience in the type of surgery.
In the UK, all doctors must register with the General Medical Council and have a license to practice and the same applies abroad. Clinics need to be accredited by the local regulator.

Here are some of the more popular cosmetic body procedures:
Abdominoplasty flattens the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening abdominal muscles. Also known as a “tummy tuck”, this surgical procedure can be performed to flatten the abdomen.
Tummy tucks are either “mini” or “complicated”, depending on how much fat and skin is involved. It is important to be educated, fully analyse your situation, and take your time before deciding. This procedure should not be considered an alternative to weight loss.
A full body lift, also known as a circumferential or upper and lower bodylift. This major operation involves the removal of excess skin and soft tissue, especially in the abdomen and lower back.
This may include lifting the entire abdominal skin, repositioning the belly button, tightening the abdominal muscles, and lifting and repositioning the buttocks skin.
A total bodylift can include many individual procedures, such as liposuction and thigh lifts.
Patients with excessive skin are treated by total body lift surgery. This is particularly helpful for those who have experienced significant weight loss and may have lost their skin elasticity. Excessive skin can cause discomfort and chafing, as well as making it difficult to wear tighter clothes.
Liposuction uses suction to remove excess fat from certain areas of the body. These areas can also be contoured by liposuction. Liposuction is also known as body contouring and lipoplasty.
Liposuction is not considered to be a weight loss method. If you are overweight, liposuction is not a good option. You can lose more weight by diet and exercise, or bariatric procedures (such as gastric bypass surgery), than you will with liposuction.
If you are overweight in certain areas but have a steady body weight, only then liposuction may be an option.
Mommy makeover procedures involve working on virtually the entire body. To begin with, lets discuss breast augmentation. Breast augmentation or a breast lift are intended to improve the appearance of the breasts. This is done to reduce the amount of breastfeeding-related sagging. Breast augmentation can be performed in one procedure, or both can be done separately. A breast lift is more suitable for women who are more concerned about their breast shape. Breast implant surgery may be more suitable for women who are more concerned with the size of their breasts.
Tummy tuck surgery aims to remove excess skin and fat. After skin removal, the abdomen appears tighter and firmer. The abdominal muscles can become weaker during pregnancy. This cannot be corrected even with regular exercise. These muscles can be surgically repaired, and it is often done as part of a tummy tuck procedure. For maximum concealment, specialist plastic surgeons can position the tummy-tuck scar as low on the abdomen as possible. Surgeons often combine a tummy-tuck and liposuction. The most popular areas to have liposuction are the thighs, hips, and waist.
Mommy makeovers may also include gynaecological procedures such as vaginal tightening or labiaplasty. After childbirth, many women experience vaginal laxity. Gynaecologists can perform both surgical and non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures.
Mommy makeovers can be performed in multiple stages. However, there are some cases where it is possible to do the entire procedure in one operation. There are many factors that should be considered when deciding the best treatment plan.
Mommy makeovers can be done in one or more stages depending on how much work is required. Many techniques can be used for a mummy makeover. It is important to consider all factors when deciding which technique is best.
