Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
Due to pregnancies, massive weight loss and laxity of the abdominal muscles, a more or less significant laxity of the abdominal wall can occur. This gives rise to a “round belly” and / or excess of skin, that will not be able to be hidden by clothes.
An abdominoplasty addresses these concerns by tightening the skin on the underside of the abdomen (after removing excess fat) often in combination with tightening of the underlying muscles. This surgery is done through an incision at the lower abdomen (the line of the underwear or bikini). Often an abdominoplasty is performed in combination with liposuction. This gives you a flatter tummy and a better silhouette.
The surgery is done under general anaesthesia, takes two hours to perform and a hospital stay of three days is usually required.
During your consultation your surgeon will discuss with you the desired results. He will also discuss with you the possible discomforts and complications.
