Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

After pregnancy or massive weight loss, excess, sagging skin and fatty tissue may remain on the abdomen.


Visible excess skin and fat is not only a nuisance when exercising or choosing clothes, it also does not usually fit the person’s body proportions. The desire for a correction is therefore understandable.

The procedure

The excess and sagging skin and fat tissue is precisely measured and surgically removed. The necessary incisions are placed in such a way that they are well covered by underwear or a swimming costume. In addition to the external tightening, internal tightening is often also necessary. This involves the inner abdominal muscles being tightened like an internal corset.

The abdominoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia and takes about two to three hours.


After the operation, you will remain in our clinic for at least six hours for monitoring, after which you may be collected. The first check-up will take place the next day.

After the abdominoplasty, a special compression girdle will be applied, which must be worn for the following six weeks, especially during the day and when standing.

During the first few weeks, you will temporarily feel a slight tension in the abdomen and possibly muscle pain due to the additional muscle tightening. Expect to be unable to work for about two weeks. The abdominal muscles in particular must still be protected (e.g. do not lift weights). After about six to eight weeks, the scar will be fully healed.
