Liposuction & Abdominoplasty

“I love the end result!”

“After having three lovely children, my body felt as if it had been through its share of wear and tear. My tummy was resistant to any form of exercise, and despite efforts at dieting I was stuck at a healthy 84kgs. Oftentimes it’s easier to accept life as it happens than to try changing it and I was beginning to find that I was just too busy to have to worry about myself day in and day out.

One day I looked in the mirror and I decided that I wanted more than that, I wanted my body back. After consulting with Dr Mia, I decided to have a tummy tuck and liposuction. I was scheduled for theatre soon thereafter. I arrived at Sandton Mediclinic on the day, filled in the necessary forms, and settled down in my room. After the procedure I went back to my room; my pain was well managed and the ward staff were very caring. I spent the night in the ward and was discharged the following morning with two drains, which were more uncomfortable than painful. I started mobilising slowly over the next couple of days. I was also on a strict diet and I found that my appetite was suppressed. The weight came off quickly and I lost 13kgs in the first month after the operation. I followed up with Dr Mia every week and the drains came out after only two weeks.

I would like to thank Dr Mia and his colleagues for the amazing work they did. They were always professional and pleasant, and they made the experience much less daunting than I expected.
