Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Benefits of the treatment
- Firmer abdomen and narrower waist
- Overall slimmer appearance.
- Permanent result
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 slimmer appearance.
For whom is an abdominoplasty suitable?
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is 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).
Sometimes, liposuction should be performed besides a tummy tuck.
About the treatment: Tummy tuck
What happens during surgery?
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.
