Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) with Liposuction

Description of the procedure and the resulting effect

The incision is made based on various factors, which are evaluated at the preoperative consultation. Usually one long, horizontal incision is made in the lower abdomen. The second, small incision is around the navel. The skin and subcutaneous tissue are separated from the muscles and the abdominal wall is toned, if necessary, by suturing the abdominal muscles. Excess skin is removed, and a new hole is created for the navel. The scar remains in the lower abdomen to be easily covered with underwear. Finally, the wound is closed with absorbable sutures. According to the surgeon, it is sometimes necessary to combine abdominoplasty with muscle repair and liposuction.

It is recommended to consult a doctor about the appropriateness of this surgery, as the procedure is not suitable for everyone and does not address classic obesity.

Description of the procedure and the resulting effect

After greater weight loss or even after childbirth, the skin in the abdomen is loose, usually associated with weakening of the abdominal wall due to the separation of abdominal muscles. Excess skin often cannot be removed even by exercise and the solution can be plastic surgery of the abdomen – abdominoplasty. This is an extensive surgical procedure to remove excess fat, loose skin and to tone the muscles of the abdominal wall.
In general, both women and men undergo this surgery. If a woman is planning to become pregnant or intends to undergo, for example, a slimming treatment, it is advisable to wait with the surgery in order to achieve the greatest possible effect.

Frequently asked questions about the procedure

How long will I be out of work?

You should plan at least 3 weeks off to allow sufficient recovery time. However, if your work is physically demanding, count on a longer time to recover. Everything will be consulted with the surgeon.

How long will it take for the swelling to disappear and when will I see the result?

The result will be visible immediately, although full recovery may take 2-6 months. Your scar may be red and swollen during this time. It will disappear eventually

How long will the result of the surgery last?

It can last for many years. Unless there is a large weight gain or a large change in body shape after pregnancy, the changes are permanent.

What can I expect after the surgery?

You can usually walk immediately after the intervention; in fact, it is recommended to walk several times a day. At first, you may not be able to stand up straight and you may walk with your back bent. The reason is that the skin of the abdomen will be firm after suturing. You will probably be instructed by your surgeon to try to bend slightly for the first 4–5 days after surgery.
