  2. 2. Introduction Firstly – Congratulations on your massive weight loss and making the necessary lifestyle changes to live a happier healthier life. My name is Angela Chouaib. In 2009 I was in the same position as you probably are now – trawling the net, leafing through medical literature and altogether overwhelmed by the options available to a woman wanting plastic surgery. Surely there was an easier way?My frustration was compounded by more than just the search for a perfectplastic surgeon. Having shed ten stone through gastric bypass surgery, I nowhad to face the long wait until I’d ascended the NHS waiting list. Thelength of time I would have to wait would be two years. I needed analternative solution!Finally, my seemingly endless search bore fruit. I’d found my dreamhospital and surgeon, the fact that it was in Poland didn’t concern me solong as the treatment I received was top-class. In April 2010 I flew fromthe UK, and had my tummy tuck. Any previous reservations I had wereunfounded – not only was the customer care exemplary, but the treatmentexceeded all my expectations! I returned just a month later for a breastreduction and uplift.When I returned home the second time, I couldn’t help but feel thehospital and surgeon deserved more recognition. Back home people werepaying exorbitant rates for treatments they could receive in Poland for afraction of the price. But the stigma around medical tourism practicesremained. Back street butchers and cheap boob jobs were the imagesassociated with surgery abroad. Without reaching for the nearestmegaphone and calling doubters forth to scrutinise my treatments, I had todo something. Secret Surgery Ltd was about to be born.

  6. 6. Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)The best candidates for the tummy tuck procedure are people aftermultiply pregnancies or basically women who lost significant amountof weight and were left with excess of skin and fat tissue in theabdominal area which do not respond to diet or exercises. Tummytuck (abdominoplasty) can also reduce scars after other surgeries inthe abdominal area (for example caesarean, C-sections etc.) andpartly reduce stretch marks. The Tummy tuck may be performed as afull abdominoplasty or as a mini tummy tuck. If necessary during thesame procedure liposuction can be performed.The Full tummy tuck involves works in the area of mid and lowerstomach together with tightening up the abdominal wall and alsonavel replacement. So the scar runs from hip to hip - the incision ismade in the area of pubic bone. Whereas in case of mini tummy tuckthe incision is shorter (similar to caesarean) and the navel may notbe replaced (also recovery time is shorter) - basically miniabdominoplasty is less invasive. In general scar after tummy tuck canbe easily covered by underwear.Abdominoplasty is a major and serious procedure. Like each surgeryit carries risks but in comparison with other cosmetic surgeriesabdominoplasty carries higher risk of complications and longer lengthof recovery. All pros and cons of the surgery should be discussed byplastic surgeon with a patient.For the first few days abdomen will probably be swollen and bruised,a patient feels some pain and discomfort which can be controlled bypainkillers. But it will take a while until a patient will feel like herself again. For sure recoveryis quicker for those patients who were in good shape / exercised their body before thesurgery. Basically exercise help to heal better and reduce swelling and also lower thechance of blood clot. Tummy tuck produces excellent results and in most cases, the resultsare long lasting.Time of the procedure: 3-4 hours.Anaesthetic: Procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.The length of stay with us: After the procedure, the patient stays at the clinic for 2 days,and then remains under the doctors control for up to 10 days until the stitches removal.Recommendations to be followed after the procedure: You must wear a special elastic abdomen belt or corset During the first 6 weeks you cannot do any exercises, e.g. aerobic, fitness, swimming, etc. During the first 6 months: sun-bathing, solarium and sauna are forbidden Avoid injuries of the abdominal area 10 days after the surgery it is good idea to start treating the incision with ointments- Dermatix, that help the scar to flatten out and lighten in colour. Each patient receives individual information concerning further procedures at the discharge from the clinic.

  7. 7. Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)Thigh LiftThigh lift plastic surgery is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive-looking upper legs. Especially helpful for those who have loose, excess skin as aresult of weight loss, thigh lift, or thighplasty, can help tone and refine your legs soyou can show off a new, thinner you! There are many options with thigh liftsurgery. Learn about the various ways to reshape your legs by reading about theprocedures listed to the right.Types of Thigh LiftsThere are several different types of thigh lifts that target certain areas for specificresults. During your thigh lift surgery consultation, your surgeon will discuss withyou your treatment options and the results you can expect from thighplasty. Thisconsultation will help determine what, if any, type of thigh lift surgery is right foryou.Inner Thigh LiftAs indicated by its name, an inner thigh lift targets the inner thigh. This type ofthigh lift helps people who have trouble eliminating excess fat from this area of thebody through diet and exercise. An inner thigh lift may also be used to treatreduced skin elasticity caused by the aging process or extreme weight loss. Duringan inner thigh lift, an incision is made at the junction of the thigh and pubic area. Awedge of skin, and possibly fat, is then removed and the skin in tightened toprovide an improved leg contour and enhanced skin elasticity. During your innerthigh lift consultation, an experienced surgeon will thoroughly discuss yourindividual case and possible risk factors.Bilateral Thigh LiftThe bilateral thigh lift procedure is designed to tighten skin on the front and outsideof the leg. During a bilateral thigh lift, the surgeon makes an incision at the top ofthe leg where the lower edge of a bikini bottom or pair of underwear would be. Acertain amount of skin is then removed before the surgeon pulls the remaining skinup and attaches it to the same area. In this way, a bilateral thigh lift serves totighten skin along both the right and left side of the leg. This procedure isespecially helpful to those who have excess skin after an extreme weight loss.During your consultation, a surgeon experienced in bilateral thigh lift will determineif you are a good candidate for this procedure.Medial Thigh LiftA medial thigh lift reduces excess skin and fat on the upper portion of the innerthigh. It is designed for patients who are dissatisfied with the shape of their legs orwho would like to remove excess skin after an extreme weight loss. During amedial thigh lift procedure, an incision is made in the groin that goes to the back ofthe crease of the buttock. Skin in then lifted and excess skin and fat are removedto improve the shape of the leg and tighten the skin. If you are interested in amedial thigh lift, an experienced surgeon will discuss with you your goals fortreatment and determine if you are a candidate for this or any other thigh lift Secret Surgery Ltd, Company Registered No: 7437618 Email: Info@secretsurgery.co.uk, Tel: 0843 289 4 982
  8. 8. procedures.Will a Thigh Lift Leave Visible Scars?Thigh lifts do leave scars. However, thigh lift scars are usually located in arelatively inconspicuous location and, in the minds of many patients, pale incomparison to the benefits provided by the procedure. In many cases, thigh liftscars are easily concealed by underwear or bathing suits. If you are consideringthigh lift surgery but fear the prospect of scars, an experienced thigh lift surgeoncan discuss this possibility, as well as any other potentially negative aspects of theprocedure so that you can make an informed decision. Scars are, unfortunately,one aspect of thigh lift surgery that patients must weigh against the benefits ofeliminating excess fat and skin tissue. Secret Surgery Ltd, Company Registered No: 7437618 Email: Info@secretsurgery.co.uk, Tel: 0843 289 4 982
  9. 9. Breast uplift (Mastopexy)The best candidates for breast lift are women who havesignificantly sagging breast skin. The reason of such a situationis ageing process, weight loss, long breast feeding, post-pregnancy, etc. The surgery involves cut of skin excess, lift ofgland and reposition of nipples in order to gain a result of firmand perky breasts. There is also a possibility of inserting implantduring the same procedure.During direct assessment a plastic surgeon is choosing the besttechniques of breast lift for particular patient. Depending onextent of sagging breasts, their shape and size the mostcommon techniques are: so called incision upside down T letter(round the nipple, vertically down and in natural curve below thebreast), L letter (round the nipple and vertically down) or onlyround the nipple incision. The surgery leaves patient with visiblescars.After the surgery a patient should stay in the clinic at least 2nights. It should be enough to remove drains after that time.During first week a patient feels pain and discomfort which canbe controlled by painkillers.Although breast lift is rather safe procedure, each surgerycaries some risk. It does not harm a breast gland so there is apossibility of breast feeding in the future. A complication can bepermanent difference in nipple sensation, bleeding, infection. Allrisks connected with undergoing the surgery should bediscussed with your surgeon during direct assessment.Time of the procedure: 3 hours.Anaesthetic: Procedure is performed under generalanaesthetic.The length of stay with us: After the procedure, the patientstays at the clinic for 2 days, and then remains under thedoctors control for up to 10-12 days.Recommendations to be followed after the procedure: during first 6 weeks it is necessary to wear a special bra in case of office workers 1 week of work leave is recommended whereas in case of manual workers 2 weeks of work leave are recommended scars will be pink up to a few months about 3 weeks after the surgery incision should be treated with a special ointments - Dermatix that help to heal the scars and make them whiten during the first 6 weeks you cannot do any exercises, e.g. aerobic, fitness, swimming, etc. during the first 3 months: sun-bathing, solarium and sauna are forbidden each patient receives detailed individual information concerning further procedures at the discharge from the clinic.

  10. 10. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)Brachioplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the upper arm.Arm tissue relaxes and descends with aging, gravity, and weight loss. Especially aftersignificant weight loss, most people are left with stretched and excess skin that no amount ofexercise will improve. One area particularly affected is the upper arms, where women tend tostore excess fat and have less supporting muscle tone.The drooping of skin is from a stretching of the anchoring fascial system and loss ofsupporting fat. The extra sagging can result in a significant "loose hammock" like deformityfrom the axilla to the elbow. Some call this a "bat wing" deformity. Also, if the skin has poorelasticity and will not contract with conventional liposculpture then brachioplasty is indicated.Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) - The SurgeryBrachioplasty is usually done under general anesthesia. It involves excision of skin along thelower border of the arm and will leave a thin scar along the inside of the arm. There aredifferent degrees of ptosis (drooping) deformity. Brachioplasty can remove the excess tissueand reduce the circumference of the upper arm. Surgical correction depends on the amountof extra skin and how loose the supporting tissues have become. Extra skin is removed fromincisions along the inner arm. The incision must be placed where the tissue can be besttightened.The most common incision used for brachioplasty extends from the elbow to the axilla. Thispermits the excision to maximally address the redundant skin in the middle of the arm.Modification of the incision may be necessary to limit scar contracture in the axilla. Surgicalsculpture involves not just the superficial skin, but also the deeper attachments that haveloosened.A combined excision can sometimes limit the length of the scar between the elbow andaxilla. In cases where there is loose skin of the lateral chest, the incision can be extended to Secret Surgery Ltd, Company Registered No: 7437618 Email: Info@secretsurgery.co.uk, Tel: 0843 289 4 982
  11. 11. deal with the extra tissue there. Before brachioplasty surgery markings help guide theexcision. The actual incision may curve or zigzag to minimize scar contraction. Liposuctioncan be useful to contour the fat layer. A skinny rubber drain may be used after surgery toremove fluids.Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) - RisksBecause of the level of the brachioplasty incisions, visible scars can be a major concern. Itbecomes a choice between the loose wobbling extra skin and the scar from the excision.Meticulous surgical technique and good after surgery scar care can limit the degree ofscarring.Clothing style can help camouflage some of the brachioplasty scar, but not the loose skinbefore surgery. Other possible complications include persistent swelling of the arm, infection,bruising, and bleeding. Nerve injury can result in numbness and change in feeling.Brachioplasty is not suitable after mastectomy or operations in the axilla lymph nodes. Thosewith multiple infections of the sweat gland may also not be candidates for brachioplasty.Drainage of the arm may already be impaired, and further surgery may lead to permanentarm swelling.Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) - After Surgery CareRecovery post brachioplasty takes one to two weeks. Swelling is generally mild to moderate,and peaks at 2 to 3 days. While each persons recovery is unique, bruising and swelling afteran arm lift generally lasts 1 to 2 weeks. Youll probably be able to return to work in a week,and resume exercise within 2 weeks. Strenuous workouts and contact sports can beengaged in after about four weeks.The dressing may be extensive after brachioplasty with elastic support or something smaller.You will need to protect the incisions after surgery. Limiting lifting is important. Elevation withpillows increases comfort. It can take 6 months or more to see how the scars will evolve.Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) - ResultsPatients benefit from improved balance and proportion in the contour of the arm, oftenresulting in greater confidence and comfort in clothing.
