THE NHS has carried out 16 tummy tucks in south east Essex over the past three years.

Surgeons carried out the cosmetic procedure to remove excess skin and fat on seven people in 2010/11, four in 2011/12 and five in 2012/13.

The figures were revealed after Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell asked a question in Parliament.

Without a breakdown of the reasons why these operations were carried out (i.e reconstructive surgery after cancer operation etc). These figures are pretty meaningless.
