Nipping out for a Tuck-Away


Palmer, Jill, The Mirror (London, England)


Q I am interested in having cosmetic surgery to reduce my tummy and bottom.

What does this involve and where I can find a qualified surgeon?

A THERE are no regulations covering cosmetic surgery here so it is easy to fall into the hands of unqualified, inexperienced doctors.

Your consultant should meet the requirements of the Royal College Of Surgeons and be accredited as a plastic surgeon - which means several years specialising in plastic surgery at an NHS hospital.

A tummy tuck is called an abdominoplasty and designed to remove loose skin and fat often caused by pregnancy or substantial weight loss. It leaves noticeable hip scars.

Body fat on the hips and thighs can be removed by liposuction, although this can leave bruising.

For a list of surgeons, send an SAE to the British Association Of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, Royal College Of Surgeons, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PN
