Beating The Bulge

The very nature of the abdominoplasty surgery allows a more exposed repair which is stronger and more reliable than the traditional methods. Operative exposure of the abdominal wall during an abdominoplasty allows easy reduction of the hernia and the extending of the muscle repair from the chest to the pubis, removes the weak midline problem. With the tension shared equally down the abdomen in a muscle repair, no plastic mesh is required. Hernias can also protrude from the umbilicus (an “outy” belly button). This will […]

Getting to the Core of the Problem

There are many reasons women come to me for a tummy tuck. Often they just don’t like the look and feel of their abdomen after pregnancy, or they’ve lost weight and are concerned by excess skin. Others are confused by bulges that have no apparent cause.

It’s a bit of a lottery how abdomens fare after pregnancy. Some women have stretchmarks while others can get through the process without a single one. There are also women for whom pregnancy can result in hernias. For whatever reason […]

Imagine Life Without Backpain

Not just a pretty tummy. The abdominoplasty has always been a popular procedure, removing unsightly bumps and curves.  Yet now, thanks to a breakthrough clinical study and unique approach by Dr Alastair Taylor of The CAPS Clinic, a wider range of life-changing results is being realised.

“Patients often come to me requesting the removal of a bulging stomach with liposuction.” says Dr Taylor. “In some cases this is possible but in most, specifically following child birth or weight loss this is bad idea. Liposuction can only remove […]

Fact or Fiction: Any Doctor Can Perform Surgery

Cosmetic surgeons may learn specific procedures but are not drawing on this wide skill base that has been taught through late night trauma, complex cancer surgery in a compromised patient, and caring for critically ill patient. Cosmetic surgeons usually operate out of day surgeries and often lack the admitting rights to hospital if a problem needs to be dealt with or if someone needs to stay longer than a day or overnight.  They may have to send complications to a public hospital Accident & Emergency (A&E) […]

A New Hope

In August 2011 I was approached by David Berg from Berg Physiotherapy. Unbeknownst to me, David had arranged for three patients he had been working with to undertake an abdominoplasty with me.

Aside from the obvious cosmetic improvements of an abdominoplasty, I have always been aware of the ‘added benefits’ being improvement in lower back and neck pain, stronger core for exercising and an improved sexlife. But I was not aware of the issue of incontinence.

Post pregnancy over 40% of women experience some ‘light bladder leakage’ […]

Quick-Fix Myth

In today’s fast-paced world we all lead very busy lives. In an age where everything is so accessible, and technology is constantly improving we’ve come to expect that things will happen quickly. In some cases, this is not always a good thing.

Sometimes you have to be patient, especially when it comes to skin rejuvenation as a lot of the concerns you have, are an accumulation of years of damage. So even though this technology is effective we can not expect our skin to be fixed […]
