Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Weak abdominal muscles and excess skin are related to pregnancies, weight loss, ageing and other reasons. The condition does not respond well to diet or exercise and can be corrected surgically with very pleasing results. The Abdominoplasty plastic surgery is designed to address both the loose muscles and the excess skin. Stretch marks which are present in the lower part of the abdomen are removed partially or completely during the plastic surgery. The incision is individually planned for each patient. Most commonly, a horizontal lower abdominal incision is used which can be easily covered underneath the bikini line. A second incision is sometimes performed around the belly button, giving a specific consideration to the aesthetics of this part.

Tightening of the muscles usually results in a reduced waistline, and liposculpture or liposuction of the flanks and upper abdomen can be added if necessary. At the end of plastic surgery, a pressure binder/garment is applied, which supports the abdominal muscles and the operated skin. It is recommended that you continue using this binder for two to three weeks after the tummy tuck cosmetic surgery. You can expect to wake up after surgery with your hips flexed. The following morning you will be allowed to start walking. Shortly after surgery, a tight feeling in the abdomen is common, but this tightness gradually resolves during the first week after the Abdominoplasty plastic surgery .

Before After

An overnight stay in hospital is usually required. Pain is mild to moderate and is easily controlled with painkillers. Reduced sensation is common in the skin above the incision and in most patients, recovers over a few months. Most sutures dissolve, but some have to be removed 12 to 14 days after the plastic surgery. Most patients can go back to normal activity within one or two weeks after the cosmetic surgery. Physical activity can be gradually resumed in the first few weeks after the surgery. The scars fade away almost completely over a period of six to 12 months.

Are you concerned by loose skin and bulging abdomen after child birth or weight loss? Can you image your figure after a tummy tuck and perhaps liposuction?
