What does a Tummy Tuck involve?

Tummy Tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can help when the abdominal muscles are weakened and fat is accumulating in the abdominal area. During this procedure, we correct the abdominal muscles and remove excess fat. The result is a more beautiful and firmer appearance. A tummy tuck is also often performed on women after childbirth, when the skin and muscles are stretched.

Abdominoplasty: different options

At the Wellness Kliniek, we offer several types of tummy tucks. A mini tummy tuck, a full tummy tuck, a Fleur-de-Lis tummy tuck and a body lift. Read more about the different abdominoplasty options. The most suitable form for you is always discussed with your doctor.

Recovery after a Tummy Tuck

Depending on the type of tummy tuck, you will have to recuperate for a while, but it will certainly be worth it! It is best to take a few weeks' rest. Shortly after the operation, it is a good idea to have a helping hand nearby. That way, you avoid unnecessary exertion and your muscles get the chance to recover sufficiently. Together, we will look at how we can best and quickly achieve the desired results and how we can speed up the healing process.

Scars after the operation

The scars are different for each type of tummy tuck. Usually, we make a minimal incision hidden in the pubic area. This way, it is barely visible and the scar remains minimal.

Long-lasting results 

Tummy tucks or abdominoplasties produce brilliant results. If you stick to a healthy lifestyle, the results are long-lasting. After the operation, our patients have a lot more self-confidence. Are you planning to lose weight? Then it is best to wait until you have reached your target weight.
