After having my 3 girls, I'd put on a lot of weight. I decided enough was enough and lost 5 stone. Decided to have tt to remove excess skin and remaining fat. I got seroma around 2 weeks after surgery and not been happy since. Please can someone tell me this is not a normal outcome. My ps has said some lipo my need doing but I'm just not sure if more needs doing. Any advice would be fantastic more

Dr Ross and his team have changed my life. They are caring, compassionate, understanding, supportive, and extremely friendly. They are truly experts in their field, I couldn't imagine having gone anywhere else and don't think there could be better expertise in this field. I would never thought that going through such a procedure could be such a positive and pleasant experience. Mr Ross... more
Just joined so please bear with me. I started my TT journey a while back. I have 4 beautiful girls 11, 9, 7 and 2.5yrs old. They were all normal deliveries. I count myself very lucky to have 4 healthy children but for 11 years my body confidence has been in shreds. I won't dare wear a bikini on the beach. My whole 20's has basically revolved around me being pregnant, breast feeding and gaining... more
After losing a large amount of weight, I was left with a large apron of skin and fat that was the bain of my life. I needed a full tummy tuck but was very picky who I chose as mine was auch larger procedure than normal. To give you an idea of the scale, I ended up having 15lbs of skin and fat removed. So finding an experienced, confident surgeon was paramount in my choice of surgeon. ... more

Hi TT ladies. I am at the start of my journey and plan to share it with you all.
I have had a full and frank consult with Mr Vik Vijh who was very honest with me. I thought I could get away with a mini TT to get the loose skin removed. How wrong was I?
I think deep down I knew there was more to be done. My 1st baby was huge. 9lb 6oz and was delivered by emergency c-section.
Mr Vijh... more
