Frequently asked questions
Type of treatment
Often after major weight loss or a pregnancy, women are dissatisfied with their stomachs. Due to natural elasticity, the skin usually returns to its previous shape. In many cases, however, the skin has been stretched out for too much time and women long for their taut stomachs to return. When exercise and a healthy diet are not helpful, a tummy tuck is an option that offers a permanent solution. The tummy tuck offers the possibility of regaining one’s figure when liposuction alone does not offer the desired result.
A tummy tuck is required if there is a large skin fold in the lower abdomen or a fat apron formation is present, and the elasticity of the skin is considerably reduced. Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) involve removing fatty tissue and gently tightening the stomach muscles. A firmer abdominal wall, a flatter, tighter stomach and a smaller waist are the result.
Most patients will undergo a tummy tuck (medical term: abdominoplasty) under general anaesthesia. In-patient treatment may be necessary depending on the scale of the operation. If the skin only requires tightening, this procedure can be done under local anaesthesia. In such cases an out-patient operation is a possibility. Take advantage of the knowledge and experience of our highly specialised plastic and aesthetic surgeons, who focus on either out-patient or in-patient treatment.
After the operation, the patient receives a special compression garment, which should be worn for six weeks. In order to achieve optimal results, physical rest is required for four weeks. After that point gentle exercises can be done, but working out should be avoided for eight weeks.
