Body contouring surgery
Body contouring or body sculpting is a term which encompasses a broad range of procedures designed to tighten, reshape and tone the skin. These procedures include liposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lifts, buttock lifts, arm reductions. Some patients request minimal procedures, such as liposuction of the thighs, but others may request multiple larger procedures (for example, after massive weight loss).
Mommy makeover – I wish I had done it years ago!
I had to travel over 300 miles to have a consultation and again to have the surgery so I did lots of research and initially visited 3 different hospitals before deciding on Mr Omar Quaba at the Murrayfield Spire Hospital in Edinburgh. Mr Quaba immediately made me feel at ease and explained the procedure fully (abdominoplasty) and all associated risks and possible complications. I went back home with all the information required to make an informed decision about that procedure.
Mr Quaba agreed to have another (telephone) consultation at my request to discuss an additional procedure (breast reduction & lift) and decided to have the 2 operations at the same time.
As soon as I arrived at the hospital, I knew I was in good hands and Mr Quaba made me feel relaxed and confident. My surgery went very well and I was very pleasantly surprised that it was not nearly as painful as I had expected and I was delighted to have no drains, nor did I have to wear compression garments.
After 2 very comfortable nights in the hospital with wonderful care, I was discharged to stay with friends until my checkup a week later. I was given phone numbers to call had I any worries or problems (which I didn’t) and then 6 months later I met Mr Quaba again for a follow-up appointment.
It was a very positive experience and if I felt I required any further procedures, Mr Quaba would be my 1st choice!
