Brazilian Tummy Tuck
In addition to traditional tummy tuck techniques, Dr Milovic offers the Brazilian tummy tuck or waist re-contouring technique in suitable patients. The Brazilian Tummy Tuck is a relatively new and advanced procedure in plastic and cosmetic surgery, and as always, you will need to ensure that your surgeon is qualified to perform it. Dr Milovic is one of the few experienced plastic and cosmetic surgeons who are currently offering this procedure in Australia.
The Brazilian Tummy Tuck procedurewas invented in 2008 and is an advanced surgical technique from the traditional Abdominoplasty. There is faster recovery time, reduced risks of wound healing problems and less loss of sensation above the scar. The difference between the techniques is related to a change in fundamental understanding by experienced surgeons in this field. However, the same amount of skin, from above the umbilicus to the top of the pubic hairline, is removed and the rectus abdominis muscles are tightened. The umbilicus is repositioned in both procedures.
The Brazilian tummy tuck is a surgical procedure most commonly performed on patients both women and men, who have excess loose skin and fat in the abdominal region. This can be caused by multiple pregnancies, substantial weight loss or can be inherited and no amount of exercise can solve this problem. Dr Milovic will discuss this option with you at your first consultation. Your goals and expectations are most important and these will also be discussed during your consultation. Previous patients have been delighted with the outcome and it is one of the most successful and life transforming operations in plastic surgery.
