Tummy & Body Surgery in Newcastle & Sydney NSW

  • Do you have excess pockets of fat in your abdominal area?
  • Are you suffering from skin irritation due to sagging skin in your arms and legs?
  • Do you feel that your body has undergone significant changes due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or aging?

Body surgery procedures can offer a long-term cosmetic solution and may help boost your self-esteem. With modern body contouring options, you can eliminate pockets of excess fat, smooth and tighten the skin, and attain a beautifully sculpted physique. If you, like many others, have tried every diet and exercise routine conceivable and are still having trouble with loose skin and reducing fat deposits in specific areas, you are not alone. The good news is there are a number of procedures available that can help you achieve your goals. While ageing and weight loss all have an impact on how your body looks and feel, the effects of pregnancy and child raising can take an enormous toll on your body.

The stretching of the stomach muscles and skin of the abdomen, thighs and breasts can lead to stretch marks, excess fatty tissue and loose sagging skin. Dr Scott Turner can help you restore your pre-pregnancy figure and feel great about the way you look with a customised ‘Mummy Makeover’ procedure.

What is Body Surgery?

Body contouring surgery is a group of procedures aimed at improving the appearance of your body as well as increasing your self-confidence. These procedures remove excess fat, skin, and tissue from your body to reshape the area. Once the surgical incisions have completely healed, the treated area becomes firmer, smoother, and well-defined. Depending on your condition, whole body surgery can be tailored to suit your cosmetic and medical needs.

Am I Suitable for Body Surgery?

During your consultation, your surgeon will assess your condition, body type, health history, treatment goals, and expectations to determine if a full body surgery is right for you. In general, you are a good candidate for the procedure if:

  • You don’t smoke.
  • You are bothered by the appearance of a certain part of your body.
  • You are physically healthy.
  • You have low self-esteem.
  • You have pockets of fat in your abdomen.

FAQs about Cosmetic Body  Procedures

Can you have multiple body surgeries at the same time

Some body surgeries can be performed at the same time with minimal risks. However, other surgeries that are performed at once can increase your risk of developing problems and other complications. To ensure your safety, consult with a top surgeon with vast experience in body contouring surgeries.

What is the ideal age to have body surgery?

The ideal age to have body surgery will depend on the type of procedure you want to undergo. For instance, breast surgeries are recommended for younger patients since they have elastic skin and a good amount of breast tissue. On the other hand, body contouring procedures aimed at improving the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and loose skin are best performed in older patients. To know the ideal body surgery that will suit your anatomy, lifestyle, and cosmetic goals, schedule a consultation with a top surgeon.

Will your medical insurance help cover the cost of your body surgery?

Make sure to verify the policy of your private health insurance to determine if you can make a claim on the costs of your desired procedure. Usually, if a body surgery is done for cosmetic purposes, your private health insurance will not pay for your procedure. On the other hand, if the goal of your body contouring surgery is to treat a certain medical condition (e.g. thigh lift to reduce skin irritation and infection), then you may be eligible for a health insurance claim. By consulting with a top plastic surgeon, you will discover your treatment options and your financing options.
