A lot of people wish for a tighter, flatter abdomen. Unfortunately, the elasticity and tension of the abdominal wall often decreases after pregnancies, massive weight loss or as a result of getting older. Even intensive training of the abdominal muscles in most cases does not achieve the expected aesthetic result. The tightening of the abdominal wall can permanently remove these unsightly changes.
The cut is made parallel to the line where the pubic hair starts. At the sides it is adapted to the individual form of the patient's underwear. Afterwards the abdominal skin is moved up to the costal arch, tightened and the surplus tissue removed. The navel is placed in the new abdominal wall. If the two abdominal muscles that run lengthwise (rectus muscles) have moved apart, they are brought closer together again; Remaining subcutaneous fat at the flanks is sucked out simultaneously or in a second operation.
Tummy tuck can either be done as a single procedure or can be combined with other cosmetic operations.
