Tummy tuck for a flat abdomen
Our skin is actually very flexible: Whether we lose or gain weight, build muscle or are pregnant - our skin adapts easily. But sometimes our body cannot adjust to the new circumstances, especially if the waist circumference is shrinking very fast.
The situation may get stressful if after extreme weight loss or pregnancy the abdomen becomes much flatter, but skin and muscles will not adapt to the new figure.
In this case, a tummy tuck may be useful: The skin will be stretched downwards, and the excessive tissue will be removed. In some cases the abdominal muscles will be tightened or the tummy tuck combined with a liposuction.
A tummy tuck done by plastic surgeons
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a frequently performed major surgery, which requires optimal organisation, precise surgery and careful aftercare. Therefore, a tummy tuck should be performed only by experienced, skilled surgeons and plastic surgeons.
Our specialist in plastic surgery will be pleased to advise and inform you about a tummy tuck during a consultation at our Heidelberger clinic proaesthetic.
Reasons for a tummy tuck
After weight loss or pregnancy the abdominal tissue may remain as an empty shell.
The skin is saggy and sometimes hangs in folds and therefore can hurt the waistband, which could even lead to inflammation under the skin flap.
If sports and lotions cannot help any more, or if your skin simply cannot retract because it is torn, a tummy tuck may be the only way to "get rid" of the excess tissue.
Competent specialists in abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty is not always expedient or possible. Therefore you should learn about this plastic surgery and the possible treatment results and take the advice of competent specialists.
