The Clifford Clinic offers the following services:

1. Mini Tuck Incision

The operation is confined to the area below the navel where loose skin is removed. Liposuction is employed to remove excess fat. This procedure is effective for eliminating poorly healed scars and stretch marks.

In addition, the advantages of a mini tuck are that the scars are small, it is less costly and the recovery period is shorter.

2. Full Tummy Tuck

The whole abdominal wall is involved in this procedure. It is recommended for cases where the skin and muscles are significantly lax. This is an invasive procedure with a downtime of 3-6 weeks. Hospitalization is necessary and the procedure will result in a few visible scars.
