If you have recently experienced the joy of pregnancy or have lost a significant amount of weight, you may have excess fatty tissues or unsightly skin folds around the abdominal region, waist and hips. Men who have put in the long hours at the gym can also benefit from the aesthetic reshaping of their midsection.

Vigorous exercise and a painstaking diet may not always achieve the toned, flat abdomen you want when saggy excess skin is present. Poor skin elasticity, muscle laxity and stubborn fat may contribute to the shape and size of your stomach, hips and waist making it tricky to wear the outfits you want.

A tummy tuck, also known as ‘abdominoplasty’ seeks to restore a youthful, toned figure following pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss or naturally through gravity and ageing.  It is a surgical procedure to eliminate excess skin folds and fat around the lower stomach region to achieve a slender figure and promote confidence in your own body.

With a modern, state-of-the art Sydney clinic and experienced professionals, Dr Rizk provides you with a safe, personalised tummy tuck and abdominoplasty service to achieve that much desired aesthetic, natural look for your stomach.
