Tummy tuck — your way to a flat tummy

After a pregnancy or weight loss, the abdominal wall can hang. Due to this fact, a lot of women no longer dare go to the swimming pool or to the beach in a bikini. With men, due to the drooping of the belly, the waist­bands of the pants are always slipping down.

General infor­ma­tion

Even powerful muscle training helps only a little. The skin of the belly often has cracks, the so-called stria. This irrever­sible atony is a sign of weak connec­tive tissue.

Other charac­te­ris­tics that contri­bute to physique problems are a high sweat tendency, inflamma­tion, and skin redness.

In many cases the pubic area is bulged and enlarged.

During the surgery

There are diffe­rent surgical proce­dures to achieve optimal results for a flat tummy.

In this proce­dure, the exces­sive fat and skin tissue is removed and the abdominal muscles tightened. Depen­ding on the patient’s needs, we offer various surgical proce­dures at our clinics.

Through a mini-tuck, a small arc-shaped incision is made into the lower abdomen and the excess fatty tissue is removed. The scar is hidden below the bikini pants. This opera­tion can be performed with both under general anesthesia or twilight sleep.

With regular tightening of the abdominal wall, the excess fat tissue is also removed from the lower abdomen. After that, the navel of the abdomen is slightly moved upwards. Also, the resul­ting scar is created in an arc-shaped form which is well hidden under the bikini pants. This type of surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

For a natural look, the shaping of the “champagne trough” is carried out. In parti­cular, we make sure that the new abdominal wall has a natural look. This so called “champagne trough” is formed by ancho­ring the navel at the muscular wall of the abdomen.

After the surgery

A special corsage should be worn for a period of 6 weeks. After 14 days, the stitches can be removed.
