Abdominoplasty in Berlin
Abdominoplasty for a perfect body feeling

Healthy and slim with a flat stomach

Whether after pregnancy or weight loss: we often lose weight faster than our skin is good for. It slackens and unsightly excesses arise. Although many of our patients are happy to be slim again, they also want to optimize their body image with a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty.

During the consultation we will talk to you about your personal expectations and realistic options. In general, people who are slim and in good physical condition can expect the best cosmetic results.

The aim of the operation is a permanent tummy tuck

Before a tummy tuck, the excess and sagging skin and fat tissue is precisely measured and marked. During the subsequent surgical intervention, the marked areas are removed. Possibly will additionally fat aspirated. During the procedure, we cut around the navel and remove the excess fat and skin through a so-called mobilization. In addition, the muscles under the abdominal wall are tightened, which keeps the result permanent. After the operation, we put the navel back in place with the skin pulled down. The scar runs lengthwise along the lower abdomen along the pubic hairline and the navel. With a complete tightening of the abdominal wall, it may be that the navel has to be moved up a little. Our special focus is on avoiding scars.

Perfect Transition

On the one hand, a tummy tuck requires a major operation with possibly visible scarring. On the other hand, it is the best method to eliminate larger fat aprons and skin folds. After the operation, not only is the proportion of the body harmoniously restored, but also the sporting activity and the subjective well-being receive a new impetus.

In addition, fat residues on the hips or upper abdomen can be removed at the same time. This gives you a perfect transition and a harmonious overall picture of your body. All in all, you should plan two to three days in our clinic in Berlin. And then, in any case, for at least six weeks do without sport and strain on the abdominal muscles.

Tips for quick healing after tummy tuck

Experience has shown that the patients' mobility is limited due to pain in the days after the operation. You should wear compression garments around the clock for three to six weeks and support the healing process with panthenol ointments. The scar must be protected from direct sunlight. Everyday life can be managed again after a few days without any restrictions. However, sporting activities should be paused for six to eight weeks. Cold showers stimulate blood circulation, which also promotes healing. We use absorbable skin sutures that dissolve themselves. All other sutures are removed after two weeks.
