Tummy tuck and liposuction: Joanne’s story


Joanne, aged 28, from Staffordshire, was always happy with her figure. But when she was 20 she gave birth to her son and put on four stone, and despite exercising to lose weight, she was left with a lot of loose skin around her tummy area.

Joanne began to research abdominoplasty and visited her GP, who told her that the procedure wouldn’t be available to her on the NHS. Undeterred, Joanne looked into private operations and following researching on the internet, came across Mrs CC Kat, a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon at Spire Parkway hospital and booked a consultation.

“I feel so much better about myself now, my confidence is back. Cosmetic surgery was something I’d wanted to do for the past eight years, so I knew it was going to make me feel happier about my appearance. I now have the confidence to undress in front of my husband and to wear clothes that actually fit me and are figure-hugging. I recently went body-boarding and wore a tight-fitting wetsuit, something I would have never done before. My little boy now says to me, ‘look at your new belly, mummy’ and it feels like I’ve been given a new lease of life.”
