General

“How long will my operation be?”

Mr Khandwala does not specify a time.  An operation must take as long as it requires so as to achieve the best possible result with the maximum amount of safety.  Mr Khandwala will be very happy to tell you the approximate time for your procedure during the consultation. 

“Will one consultation be enough for my surgery?”

Usually a minimum of two consultations is the norm for cosmetic surgery procedures.  Mr Khandwala does not charge for the second consultation(Cosmetic surgery only), but likes his patients to come and see him a second time so that the details of the operations can be explained and any queries answered.  Often, individual photographs and requirements of the patients are determined at the second consultation.

The recovery time after a mini-abdominoplasty is short, about 10 days to 2 weeks.  The recovery time after a full abdominoplasty can be longer depending on the amount of tissue excised and the pain threshold of the patient.  This is usually about the 2-3 week mark, but can be longer in some patients.
