MRS B FROM BIRMINGHAM
I am so glad that I stumbled across secret surgery and didn’t go with the company in Belgium that were going to send me to the hotel the same day as my surgery and not see me until 3 days later to change and clean my wounds and remove my drains!!!
I have had an amazing experience everything and I mean everything was taken care of before and after our arrival. DR W, Aga and Jack are amazing and have made mine and my families stay so much easier.
Angela definitely matched me up with the right surgery buddies we have laughed until our tummies hurt.
Angela you are an amazing women who definitely know what each and every patient needs. I am so pleased I found secret surgery it had made the whole experience so much easier xxx
MRS C FROM BOURNEMOUTH
My tummy and boobs have been the best thing that i have ever done!! The whole experience with Secret Surgery was first class!! I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to get more surgery with Secret Surgery in the future.

Yummy mummy makeovers were the big thing of the new millennium, and they’re not getting any less popular. Women are beginning to realise that having children doesn’t mean sacrificing good looks and tight tums!
The beauty of a yummy mummy makeover is that you can make it whatever you want: you can customise your makeover to target any areas that you think need work – whether you’ve got post-baby belly or thunder thighs. Some of the most popular procedures we deliver as part of yummy mummy makeovers are:
- Tummy tucks, to tighten up your abs after the surgery
- Liposuction, which can target any areas of fat that you haven’t managed to lose yet
- Lifts – you can have a lift just about anywhere, from your face to your thighs!
Combine one or two surgeries and who knows – you might be looking even better than you did before you had your baby!
With all the stresses of becoming a new mother, nobody wants the added worry of being self-conscious about their body. Treating yourself to a yummy mummy makeover is one way to truly reward yourself for the hard work you’ve put into pregnancy and childbirth!
A public lift – know what it is? It sounds a little like a kind of weird exercise, but actually it’s a cosmetic surgery procedure! In a nutshell: it’s a face lift for your vagina. As women age, the ‘mound’ around the vagina can get a little saggy and depressed, and a pubic lift is perfect for revitalizing your downstairs department – and your love life.
A good pubic lift also goes hand in hand with a spot of liposuction; the liposuction can get rid of any excess fat around the area, and a public lift will remove the extra skin and tissue left behind after the lipo. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to get lipo, too – many women find they only need a pubic lift.
If this little heard-of procedure sounds like it might be for you, you can attend any of our UK clinics for a consultation, in which you can really work out if this is for you. You don’t have to be ‘over the hill’ to consider a public lift – they’re for any woman who feels self-conscious and concerned about her genitalia.
We all know that patient reviews are the best way to ensure that your chosen cosmetic surgery clinic delivers what it offers – so here’s some wise words from Aggie, a previous patient of ours at Secret Surgery.
Did it take you a while to decide on Secret Surgery? “After many months of research, I narrowed down a few clinics and eventually went with this one.”
And what did you think of the service with Secret Surgery? “From my first enquiry to the day I left, I was in good hands. I never had to worry about a thing. I was collected from the airport, taken to the hospital, and everywhere in between.”
Were you pleased you went abroad for surgery – what were the staff like? “Very, very professional, very clean, polite and friendly, and worth every penny! With the medical care in the UK was the same as out here, but it’s not.”
And what about now – after the operation? “Almost six weeks after my operation, I’m so so happy with the results. I will be going back again soon for more work; the doctor was great, and he was there every day to check that I was OK and in no pain. It was all perfect, and I had no complaints at all.”
High praise indeed! Any final words? “Aga is a diamond! She’s the lady that will organise everything for you. She’s the best! Thanks all so very very much.”
Our very special video blog today is from a little girl who wants to tell us all about her mummy’s yummy mummy makeover! Here’s her opinion on just how yummy her makeover was:
“I wanna say a great big thank you – to YOU, to YOU – yes, you, Secret Surgery. You made my mummy even yummier! Even yummier than ice cream with chocolate sauce or chocolate pancakes!”
That’s pretty yummy then! A mummy makeover is designed to improve all those bits that get a bit worn during pregnancy – the tummy and the breasts, mostly. A nip here and a tuck there can make you look even better than you did before your pregnancy! It’s all the rage with celebrity mums, and it’s becoming more and more popular in the UK all the time.
Finally, our video blog guest of the day confirms where to head to if you want to look as yummy as her mummy: “Secret Surgery dot co dot UK.”
Well, what are you waiting for?
We’ve got another very special patient story today. Zoe, from Kent, underwent a Tummy Tuck with us at Secret Surgery not long ago, and now she’s going to tell us – and you, our potential patients – all about her experience here.
How did you come across us? “Whilst researching surgeons I found your details on a search engine, without even looking at the Secret Surgery website – and so not knowing it was abroad – I simply called the number provided by the search engine. Over the phone she explained the whole procedure from start to finish in such an open and honest way – I’d spent the best part of the day speaking to receptionists, advisers, answerphones…. and I was still none the wiser.”
So, the phone conversation you had with Angela made you even more set on Secret Surgery? “If she hadn’t used the words ‘Poland’ and ‘Abroad’ I would have probably turned up at her house that night, cash in hand, demanding next-day surgery!”
Ha! So you did further research instead? “I then read reviews and did my research on the surgeon, the hospital and Angela, and there wasn’t a single bad review for any of them… so it was an easy decision to book! Meeting everyone at Persona Clinic and seeing how amazing Angela looked… I could already tell by then that I had made a great decision.”
“I really can’t thank Angela enough. It will make such a huge difference to my future… but you already know about the difference! You truly understand just how much it means. That’s the real beauty of Secret Surgery. Angela – thank you for being with me through this life-changing process. Genuinely helpful, encouraging, supportive and caring – what started as a worrying trip into the unknown soon became an enjoyable and rewarding experience!”
“Many thanks to you and the rest of your team in the UK and Poland – you’re all wonderful!”
“I’ve wanted a breast reduction for many years now, being a mother of four, but I never thought I’d see it happen. I used to hate the way I looked, and so I started searching for surgeries online, and this is how I found Secret Surgery.”
“I looked at pictures on the web, and then got in contact with Angela Chouaib, Secret Surgery’s MD. She was so helpful, and made me realise just how viable surgery with Secret Surgery would be. Angela put me through to the Secret Surgery Facebook group, where I could talk to other people in the same position as me.”
“Talking to past patients, I just knew I was making the right decision. As soon as I made up my mind and paid my deposit, I could sit back and just let Angela take over. I never regretted my decision – not for a moment.”
“Angela was great the whole way through. She talked me through every step, and I never felt pushed into things. All I had to do was turn up at the airport and fly to Wroclaw, where Aga was waiting. She was lovely, and explained everything to me.”
“I was also introduced to Dr. W, the surgeon who would be performing my breast reduction. I really felt like I was in safe hands with him, and I was right! The procedure was fantastic, as was the care I received after it.”
“I’d like to thank Angela from the bottom of my heart, for you have really helped me to make my dream a reality. I’m eternally grateful!”
It’s always lovely to hear genuinely moving stories like this one, and at Secret Surgery we’re just pleased to be able to make a difference. Thanks to Nuala, we’re able to offer first-hand patient stories which might just help more people to take the plunge and change their lives.
Another day, another Secret Surgery story. Today, we’ve got someone who wants to tell us his story about accompanying his girlfriend during her trip to have breast implants at Secret Surgery.
“My girlfriend and I decided to book breast implants with Secret Surgery, because we felt secure and positive with the info given to us by Angela Chouaib when we met with her for a consultation in Kent. Everything was well-organized on our behalf, including travel and flights, and we were told where to go and what to bring with us weeks before the trip.”
Great! And what about when you got here? “When we both arrived we ere taken to out hotel by Jack the taxi driver, who was great. The apartment was very ‘designer’ – up to date, spacious – we’ll definitely stay there when we go back again.”
“The next day, we were met by Aga, who picked us up and took us to the hospital for our consultation. Jack and Aga were both very polite and talkative, and they spoke brilliant English. We also met the surgeon, who was very understanding, humble and caring; we were both very glad that he would be the surgeon performing the operation. He was great with my girlfriend – making her laugh and checking up on her – and he also spoke to me personally to say how glad he was to have done the surgery.”
But what about the service you received with Secret Surgery? “Nothing was too much trouble – I had just lost my mobile phone on the plane, and Angela kindle gave me a spare one to use, which was so helpful. The nurses were lovely to me, and even took time to print me out a tram map so I could travel between the hospital, my apartments, train stations and shopping centres. The Polish people also are very helpful if you get lost!”
Are you both pleased you came to Secret Surgery? “The operation was a success! I would definitely go again soon, to have teeth veneers done. Another reason to go back: I fell in love with the restaurants, buildings and scenery out there! Thanks Secret Surgery, for making our trip perfect!”
Thanks to you both! It’s always great to hear positive stories from our patients! If you’re a previous patients of ours, why not tell the world about your experience with us?
Mary, from Ireland, has got more news for us today about the surgeries she underwent with us earlier this year. Mary came to Secret Surgery for Vaser Lipo on her thighs, and apparently hasn’t looked back since. Here’s what she’s got to say about it.
“Three years ago, I started attending Weight Watchers after seeing a picture of myself at a wedding. I was disgusted with how I looked, and after two and half years at Weight Watchers I managed to bring my weight down by six stone and eight pounds!”
“The result was fantastic, but it also meant I had a lot of saggy bits and extra skin left over after such a large weight loss. I looked into cosmetic surgeries in Ireland, but they were all too expensive.”
“This is when I came across Secret Surgery. I contacted Angela, and she was so quick to respond! She was considerate, and I had so many questions – but to her there was no such thing as a silly question!”
“I left with my sister-in-law, Valerie, for Wroclaw on April 28th, and I was so impressed when we got to the hospital. It was immaculate, and the staff were amazing and friendly. I had the vaser lipo as part of my second operation, and it was painless, comforting and easy!”
“It was the best decision of my life. Angela was great, and my experience was made so much better by being there with Valerie, and meeting Sacha, another patient there at the time. We explored the hospital together, and had a great time.”
It’s always wonderful to hear that people have positive experiences here at Secret Surgery. If you’ve got a story to share with the world, don’t hesitate to drop us an e-mail with your Secret Surgery Story.
Not long ago we listened to Nuala, from Edinburgh, tell us about her Secret Surgery success story. Today, we’ve got all the details of her tummy tuck with us, and if you’ve ever considered undergoing a tummy tuck to flatten the flab, then this story is sure to hold your interest.
“As a mother of four beautiful daughters, I’d wanted a tummy tuck for many years, but I never thought I’d see it happen. I started the search for surgeries online, looking at pictures on the web, and it was then that I found Secret Surgery!”
“I contacted Angela Chouaib, MD of Secret Surgery, and found out just how affordable a tummy tuck with them would be – a fraction of the price it would cost me in the UK! So many of my conversations with Angela put me at ease about so many things to do with the procedure, and I was invited to join the Facebook group, where I could talk to ‘real’ patients, who were going through exactly the same thing as me.”
“I paid my deposit, and that was it! I sat back and let Angela do the work. The service provided by Secret Surgery was fantastic, from start to finish.”
And what about the tummy tuck itself? “That was fine; my surgeon even came to see me in my room afterwards, and he was there at all of my dressing changes. Now that I’m back in the UK, the results of the tummy tuck look great, and the aftercare in the UK has been wonderful.”
Finally, Nuala says “Don’t be scared, ladies! It’s well worth it.” It’s always great to hear stories like this about happy patients. If you’ve got a Secret Surgery story you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Today we’re catching up with Mary, from Ireland, who had a breast lift with Secret Surgery earlier this year. We’ve got details about her experiences with us, and if you’ve ever considered a breast lift for yourself, Mary’s words have a lot to offer.
“Three years ago, I saw a picture of myself at a wedding, at a size 26. I felt disgusted at how far I’d let myself go, and I joined Weight Watchers the week after. Two and a half years later, I’d lost six stone and eight pounds!”
“Unfortunately after I lost weight, I was left with lots of saggy bits, which I desperately wanted rid of! So I started researching cosmetic surgeries, starting in Ireland, but I couldn’t afford those. It was then that I found Secret Surgery.”
“When I contacted Angela, I was so impressed by her quick response and professionalism. She was so considerate, even when I had to change my dates twice, and she even called me the day before I was due to go, and we chatted for an hour!”
“When I got there, the hospital was immaculate, and the staff were so friendly and professional. I met Dr. W., who reassured me, and my breast lift was practically painless. It was all so easy! And Angela stayed in contact with me throughout the whole process.”
“I’d have to say it was the best decision of my life. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. I’m recommending Secret Surgery to all of my friends – and others! I’ll never forget my wonderful experience and all the friends I’ve made for life.”
We’ve got more details coming from Mary in the next couple of weeks. If you’ve got a Secret Surgery story to share with us, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
We’re back with more info from Sacha about the procedures she underwent with Secret Surgery in April. Sacha was here for three surgeries – a breast reduction, tummy tuck, and cosmetic dentistry – and today she’s going to tell us more about her experiences with a breast reduction at Secret Surgery.
“I was supposed to have my breast reduction on the 18th of April, five days after my tummy tuck. This didn’t end up happening because when I went back into the hospital for my reduction, I was told on the morning that the operation couldn’t go ahead because my blood levels weren’t right yet.”
“At first I was disappointed, but then I thought to myself that this doctor obviously cares about my health – and it’s not all about the money. After that, I was happy to wait.”
“I was there for another 10 days, which was fine, because my insurance covered all the extra costs for travel and accommodation and Angela helped me with everything. I got back to the hotel and Googled what foods I needed to eat to get my bloods back up, and religiously stuck to that list! Ten days later, my blood levels were fine, and I underwent my breast reduction.”
“The time I spent in Wroclaw was great – the city is clean, beautiful and historic – very different to what I expected! I’m so glad I went with Secret Surgery, and would definitely say that Secret Surgery is the company to use when having cosmetic surgery.”
It’s really wonderful to be able to post such positive experiences. We’ve got more from Sacha coming up in the next few weeks, so hang tight!
If you’re anything like me, the last few weeks will have gone by in a flurry of pages, as I just haven’t been able to put down the latest hit bestseller, Fifty Shades of Grey. Obviously it’s got a good story, but Fifty Shades is popular for more than just its gripping plots.
Unfortunately, I doubt there are going to be any wild office affairs happening in my life any time soon, but you don’t need a Christian Grey in your life in order to keep things exciting in bed; if you’ve found that your love life isn’t quite what it used to be, there are other ways to spice things up in the bedroom.
Cosmetic surgery is, of course, one of these options. They say it’s only skin-deep, but actually a little cosmetic nip here and tuck there can make all the difference; your new-found confidence can make you dare to do all those things that you never dared to do before!
And cosmetic surgery available at Secret Surgery also includes vaginal tightening, which can physically make the sensations of sex all the better for both partners, too! Making your life a little more like the life of Anastasia Steele really isn’t that difficult; why not live out your own Shades of Grey fantasy with the help of a little cosmetic surgery?
Today, we’re very lucky to be able to offer you another Secret Surgery success story; this time it’s Nuala, from Edinburgh, who considers her time with us to be “the most amazing experience [she] has ever had.” High praise indeed!
“I’m a mother of four beautiful daughters, and for many years I’ve wanted a tummy tuck and a breast reduction, but I never thought I’d see it happen! I used to hate the way I looked, and so yet again I started the search for surgeries online, looking at pictures on the web. It’s then that I found Secret Surgery – and realised I might be able to make my dreams a reality!”
We’re glad to hear we inspired you with so much hope, Nuala. What happened next? “I got in contact with Angela Chouaib, the Managing Director of Secret Surgery, and found out how viable surgery with SS was – at a fraction of the price it would cost me in the UK! I realised that with SS, I could afford both a tummy tuck and a breast reduction, and for less than it would cost for one procedure in the UK!”
Wow! And what about the service you got from SS? “I had so many conversations with Angela Chouaib to put my mind at ease – and, I can assure you, she did just that. She invited me to join the SS Facebook group, and I felt even more assured after talking to ‘real’ patients that my experience with Secret Surgery would be great.”
“These were people that were going through exactly the same things as me, and I could tell this was the right thing to do. As soon as I made up my mind and paid my deposit, I could sit back and just let Angela take over – and that’s exactly what happened. I was so excited to see what would come next, and never for a moment did I regret my decision.”
“The service provided by Angela was, from start to finish, second to none. Angela talked me through everything, step by step, which quickly rules out any worries I might have had. It was totally genuine; she was both caring and professional, and I never felt like I was being pushed into things. All I had to do was turn up at the airport and fly to Wroclaw, and I was met there by Aga – a lovely, beautiful Polish lady, who took over from Angela, and explained everything to me.”
That certainly does sound like great service – we’re proud to know you feel that way. What happened next? “I was given a choice between a 4-star hotel and an apartment for my accommodation, and I chose the hotel. I was taken to the hospital for my medical, and introduced to Dr Wojciech Waclawowicz. After speaking to him, I felt even more confident about my decision; I knew I was in safe hands.”
“The care that I got before my procedure and after my ops was fantastic; the surgeon even came to see me in my private room and was there at all of my dressing changes.” We do try to offer a personal service at Secret Surgery. What about when you got back to the UK, though?
“Well, I’m back in the UK now, and I’m a very happy lady! I love the new me, and though it’s early days, as I’m stilling wearing my dressings and compression garments, I’m so excited to see the change once I’m in my normal clothes. My aftercare has continued into the UK, and I’ve loved the whole experience.”
Whew! That’s all excellent news; there’s nothing better than hearing your service is appreciated by patients. “I’m just bursting with things to say about my experience! If it helps others to take the plunge and make the decision they’ve always wanted to make – don’t be scared, ladies! It’s well worth it. I’d like to thank Angela from the bottom of my heart, for you have really helped me to make my dream a reality. I’m eternally grateful.”
It’s touching to hear stories like this; at Secret Surgery, we put our priorities on quality, care and comfort, and there’s nothing more rewarding to see it pay off. If you’ve got a story to share about your time at Secret Surgery, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Today, one of our VIP patients is here to tell us about her body makeover at Secret Surgery. Sacha underwent a breast reduction and tummy tuck with us, as well as having cosmetic dentistry done while she was here.
“I went to Poland on 11th April, booked by the lovely Angela at Secret Surgery. I was booked in for a tummy tuck on the 13th and breast reduction on the 18th of April. The second operation had to be postponed while the doctors waited for blood levels to return to normal, so in between the two I had my teeth sandblasted and whitened, as well as having three veneers and a crown fitted.”
“The level of care at Secret Surgery was amazing, and the hospital was spotless. All the staff that I came into contact with were so caring; Aga and Dr. W were amazing, and Dr. W made me feel like I was the only patient there – though I obviously wasn’t. I could tell he really cared.”
“Altogether I spent one month and four days in Wroclaw, and I don’t regret a minute of it. I would recommend Secret Surgery to anyone. Thank you, Dr. W, for changing the way I feel! Although lots of people think that if they have surgery they will be happy with themselves, my advice is to be happy first and then you will truly love yourself.”
Thanks, Sacha! We’ve got more details from Sacha in the coming weeks about the separate treatments she underwent during her body makeover, so keep reading to find out how those went.
It was only a few weeks ago that we reported Kerry Katona’s recent tummy tuck, when the 31-year-old celebrity underwent bot liposuction and a tuck in order to regain her figure after giving birth to a new baby.
After spending the last few weeks as a yummy mummy, some of the more critical British papers have been ragging on Katona after appearing on a celebrity edition of the popular TV cooking show, Come Dine With Me.
The papers criticised her serving of fish and chips – a British classic – on the show, so soon after undergoing her surgery. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing wrong with indulging yourself now and again; undergoing cosmetic surgery doesn’t mean you’re never allowed to enjoy anything a little bit naughty again!
Kerry still looked fab on the show; for a mum of four kids, she’s still a tiny size 8 and looking gorgeous! It’s important to maintain good eating habits after any surgery in order to maintain the effect that surgery aimed for, but that doesn’t mean denying yourself a treat every now and again.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd. says that “It’s wonderful to see a celebrity being so down-to-earth about her surgery; no one in the celeb world has been so honest about cosmetic procedures as Kerry Katona, and we applaud her for it. As for the fish and chips? She deserves them! Good for her – she’s obviously maintaining her weight well, so why not enjoy a treat?”
We’ve got another Secret Surgery success story today, this time coming from Mary, in Ireland. It’s always gratifying to hear that all the efforts we put in at Secret Surgery don’t go to waste, and Mary’s story is yet another example of our great results.
Let’s see what Mary has to say. “I just wanted to share my journey with you. It started three years ago, when I saw a picture of myself at a wedding, and I was wearing a size 26 dress. I was digusted that I had let myself go that much, so I joined Weight Watchers the week after.”
Great! How did that go? “Well, two and a half years later I’d lost six stone and eight pounds. I felt great, but I desperately wanted to get rid of all the saggy bits that my weight loss had left behind! So I started researching cosmetic surgeries, starting with some consultations in Ireland.”
And how did you go from there, to finding Secret Surgery? “I couldn’t afford the prices at the Irish surgeries, and it was then that I found Secret Surgery. I contacted Angela and was so impressed by her quick response, professionalism and her kindness. I had so many questions and I also had to change my dates twice! But she was considerate throughout, and for her there was no such thing as a silly question. She even called me the day before I was due to go, and we chatted for nearly an hour!”
We do pride ourselves on approachability at Secret Surgery! What happened next? I left with my sister-in-law, Valerie, for Wroclaw on April 28th, and I was so impressed when we got to the hospital. It was immaculate, and the staff we do amazing, friendly and professional. Aga was wonderful, so kind and funny – I felt we’d been friends all our lives!”
But surely the most important thing is how the surgery went? “I met Dr. W, which reassured me more, and OMG! My first operation was a tummy tuck, and I had NO pain after it at all. Just a little discomfort, and the ICU nurse was fantastic, caring and patient. My second procedures – breast lift and vaser lipo on thighs – was just the same. Painless, comforting and easy! Angela also kept in contact with me throughout everything!”
That’s great news, Mary. Are you glad you did it? “I’d have to say it was the best decision of my life! I’d do it again in a heartbeat; Angela was great, and my experience was made so much better by being there with Valerie, and meeting Sacha, another patient there at the time. We explored the hospital together, and had a great time.”
“I also couldn’t have done it without the hospital’s lovely taxi driver – Jack! I’m recommending Secret Surgery to all of my friends – and others! I’ll never forget my wonderful experience and all the friends I’ve made for life.”
It’s so wonderful to hear people having such good experiences at Secret Surgery; we go to extra special efforts to make sure your time here is comfortable, enjoyable and fun!
Or, if you’ve ever been a patient of ours and have a story to share, why not get in touch with us and tell us your experiences at Secret Surgery? We love to hear them!
It’s nearly June, and despite the lacklustre weather we’ve been seeing in recent weeks, these past few days have certainly shown that things are set to take a turn for the better. Whether you’re staying in the UK this summer or if you have plans for somewhere a little more exotic, don’t forget to make sure you’ve got your beach body ready for soaking up lots of sun!
Of course, if the thought of wearing a bikini in front of hundreds of strangers makes you feel sick to your stomach, there’s still time to get yourself – and and your body – fit and ready before beach season is upon us. Imagine lying on a hot, white, sandy beach, catching some rays… with guys and gals all around looking on with a mixture of desire and envy.
Sound like fun? Well, you might want to start stocking your fridge up with fruits and vegetables, and re-register for your local gym. Take up running, start swimming once a week, or take on the Weight-watchers challenge – there are lots of ways to shift the pounds.
If you’ve already tried all of this, don’t worry – lots of us have been there, and you can still have that perfect beach babe figure. With cosmetic surgery, you can target any part of your body you feel unhappy with – want to lose some tum but keep the boobs? No problem! You’ll have the perfect hourglass figure in no time.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd., says “We see a huge increase in enquiries around the beginning of summer every year – it looks like most people are clamouring for the perfect body to show off on the beach. Luckily, we can give you just that! We don’t aim to make our patients ‘perfect’ – but we do aim to make them happy.”
It’s not only us ‘normal’ women that feel self-conscious about our thunder-thighs and daydream about the plastic surgery we want to have done. 33-year-old Zoe Saldana, star of hit blockbuster Avatar, spoke about her plans for cosmetic treatment on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, a US chat show.
On the subject of whether or not she’d treat herself to plastic surgery after having kids, Zoe said “I would. The same way an old man who is having a midlife crisis can buy a Porsche and dates a 17-year-old, I can buy a pair [of new boobs] and be the sexiest soccer mom you’ve ever seen.”
And why not? Good for Zoe – we like to see a woman showing this kind of confidence and comfort in her own choices. “I am okay with people trying to do whatever it is they need to do to feel better”. So are we, Zoe!
Mummy makeovers are all the rage these days, both in Hollywood and out of it. Only last week, it was rumoured that Beyoncé might have undergone a couple of tucks to get herself back into perfect shape so soon after the birth of her baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd., says “It’s so great to see that so many women are putting in the effort to stay sexy after childbirth. Having kids doesn’t have to be the end of your sex life – far from it! What’s important is being happy with what you’ve got, whether you undertake surgery to get there or not.”
Far too many of us know what it’s like: you spend months or years shifting the pounds, living on a diet that consists mostly of health shakes and cabbages, only to find that at the end of it all, your beach body still looks more like a beached whale body than the 22-year-old supermodel look you had in mind.
Of course, it’s not just you; after we lose a lot of weight, there’s usually lots of excess skin left behind. With no fat left for skin to wrap itself around, it just ends up sagging about like a carrier bag. While it’s scientifically natural, it’s not the best look; it’s no surprise that my shorts haven’t come out of the wardrobe since Summer 1999.
Unfortunately, one of the areas that ends up building up lots of this flab is the thigh area; anyone who’s ever been even a few pounds overweight knows how easy it is to find ‘thunder thighs’ setting up camp on your usually skinny legs. Once you’ve got thunder thighs, there’s no way to get away from them, even with weight loss.
Thigh lifts are a great way to get your body looking as good as it should do after months of hard work; there’s no sense in dieting if you don’t look smokin’ hot at the end of it all. Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd., says that ‘A quick thigh lift is the answer to unsightly excess skin that stops lots of lovely ladies from being able to confidently don their sexiest swimwear every summer.’
If you’re considering a thigh lift, don’t hold yourself back; there’s nothing worse than feeling self-conscious about something that’s completely out of your control. With thigh lifts, you can get the control back – and get back into those mini-skirts, too.
If you’ve lost a lot of weight recently, you might sometimes notice that your tummy’s looking less like the toned, beach body you imagined it might be and a bit more like somebody left a wax model out in the sun too long.
This ‘melty’ excess skin is nothing to worry about; it’s only natural that after extreme weight loss you’ve got a lot of skin left over, but unfortunately you can do all the ab crunches and sit-ups you like – you won’t dodge that podge. It’s simply excess skin, and the only way to get rid of it is to, well, get rid of it!
Tummy tucks are all the rage at the moment, with yummy mummies looking to get back their shape after nine months of ballooning, or simply successful dieters who need a couple of extra tweaks before they’re ready to show off their brand new beach bodies.
Secret Surgery’s MD and founder, Angela Chouaib, recommends a tummy tuck for anyone who has recently lost a lot of weight. “Tummy tucks are simple, routine procedures that simply remove excess tissue that gets left behind when we drop pounds quickly. It’s super-quick to recover from, and when you see the results, it’ll make those months of dieting seem even more worth it.”
