TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTIY)

Both women and men are dissatisfied with their stomachs after heavy weight loss or after pregnancy. If the elastic fibres of the skin are affected by overstretching, the skin cannot recede. The result: an expanded skin mantle hanging under the belly. Even sport and a healthy diet are, in most cases, not enough to lose excess skin. The surgical procedure of abdominoplasty is a suitable way to achieve a firmer stomach and a generally slimmer appearance.

FOR WHOM IS A TUMMY TUCK SUITABLE?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is particularly suitable for people who want to return to their figure before their skin has been overstretched. If a strong overlap or apron formation is visible in the lower abdomen, the abdomen can be tightened and the excess skin removed by tightening the abdominal wall (technical term: abdominoplasty).

In some cases, liposuction should be performed in addition to a tummy tuck.

TUMMY TUCK - METHODS, RESULTS & COSTS

The abdominal wall surgery removes fat and skin tissue and, if necessary, gently tightens the straight abdominal muscles. Patients who underwent a abdominoplastik receive a firmer abdominal wall, a flatter and tighter stomach and possibly a narrower waist.

The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed under general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art M1 Schlossklink Berlin. Depending on the size of the operation, an in-patient treatment in our clinic may be necessary. Benefit from the knowledge and experience of our specialists in plastic and aesthetic surgery and be sure to receive an individual preparation for the treatment by our doctors.

Patients who have had their abdominal wall tightened receive a special compression bodice after the operation, which they have to wear for 8 weeks. In order to achieve an optimal result, physical rest of at least 6 weeks is necessary. Afterwards, slight physical activities can be resumed. However, patients must avoid sportive activities for 8 weeks.
