When it comes to the perfect bikini body, sometimes losing the weight is only half the battle. A lot of people can be left feeling deflated after losing an incredible amount of weight, due to the excess skin that is left behind. If this is your case, don’t fret – we can help you deal with this issue and properly regain your confidence. At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we have many years of experience treating excess skin, so you know you’re in good hands with our fantastic surgical team.

Sagging Skin, Loose Skin, Excess Skin

Have a look at what we can do for you to help you get rid of unwanted skin:

Tummy Tuck

This surgical treatment, also called abdominoplasty, is ideal for anyone who has lost a lot of weight and now has excess skin as a result. Be it loose skin and fat, a loose muscle corset or even abdominal contents pushing out, a tummy tuck can help. This treatment is also common after bariatric surgeries. The area will still continue to improve during the healing process, but you’ll be able to immediately see results.

Because this is a major operation done under general anaesthetic, you will need to follow strict aftercare rules; you should also maintain a healthy and active lifestyle once you’re allowed to exercise once more. Tummy tucks will quickly get rid of excess skin and allow you to finally be happy and confident about your weight loss.


Neck Lift

It may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of loose skin, but the neck can also be affected by weight loss, depending on how much was lost. Often done to improve signs of ageing, such as jowls, you can also undergo this surgical procedure to remove saggy skin in this area. A neck lift will make a dramatic difference by lifting and improving the appearance of your skin and offering a youthful look at the same time.

The procedure requires the same incisions as a facelift would, behind and in front of the ear, as well as underneath the chin in the natural skin crease. If need be, liposuction can also be carried out at the same time, ensuring the removal of unwanted fat and, simultaneously, lifting and tightening the skin.

Lipocel Body Contouring HIFU System

If you would prefer a non-surgical treatment instead of having to go under the knife, we also offer procedures capable of tightening up loose skin. The advanced cooling technology offered by the Lipocel Body Contouring HIFU System makes it an extremely effective treatment.

If you have unwanted fat pockets you wish to remove and, at the same, ensure your skin tightens up, then this procedure is for you. Lipocel breaks down fat cells while protecting the skin and reducing pain and treats diet-resistant areas of focal obesity on the tummy, flanks, underarms, back thighs and knees – the HIFU technology also causes skin tightening, so you can expect a smooth post-procedure result. Lipocel can be done in only 30 minutes, so it’s a perfect procedure to get done on your lunchtime!

Thermage CPT Body

Another non-surgical that delivers great results. Thermage CPT Body targets skin sagging and laxity, whether due to ageing or to weight loss, by using radiofrequency technology. This popular treatment heats the skin to stimulate existing collagen fibres and create new ones, which will also give your skin a more youthful appearance as well. The results are immediate and will continue to improve over time – in just one session, you’ll find that your skin is firmer, smoother and more elastic.

Thermage will also shape your body’s silhouette; this treatment is suited for post-pregnancy tummies, seeing as it provides smoother, tighter skin. Because there is no need for anaesthesia or downtime, and you won’t have any scarring, Thermage is perfect for all skin types.
