Tummy tuck
Do you suffer from excess skin or sagging skin on your stomach? This can be the result of weight loss, pregnancies or aging.

The weakening of the abdomen is something that occurs naturally in every person. This depends on age, gender, physique, body weight and any operations or pregnancies. A tummy tuck restores the abdomen to its original state and ensures a flatter and tighter abdomen.

A tummy tuck can be performed for medical or aesthetic reasons. The slackening and stretching of the abdominal muscles in combination with excess weight can place the spine incorrectly. This can cause back pain in the long run. A less serious form of sagging, such as a slightly bulging lower abdomen or wrinkled abdominal skin, may also be a reason to consider a tummy tuck.

The consultation

Whether you are a suitable candidate for a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, depends on your complaints and this will be established during the first consultation with the plastic surgeon. Surgical correction of a thick or slackened tummy must not be seen as a way of losing weight. Overweight or obesity can even be an argument for not performing such a surgery because of the increased risk of complications. If you are clearly too heavy, we advise you to lose weight first and adjust your diet. If you have reached your weight goal, the tummy tuck can be carried out with a good chance of a beautiful result.

The surgery

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat tissue and, when necessary, the restoration of the firmness of the abdominal wall. The plastic surgeon will conduct the procedure in such a way that the scars will be minimally visible. Whenever it is feasible, there will only be a horizontal scar, as low as possible on the lower abdomen, so the scar can be covered by your underwear. Depending on the scope of the surgery, we will advise you to have a few days of bed rest afterwards. You will always spend the first night after the surgery at the Jan van Goyen Clinic.

Recovery and aftercare

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat tissue and, when necessary, the restoration of the firmness of the abdominal wall. The plastic surgeon will conduct the procedure in such a way that the scars will be minimally visible. Whenever it is feasible, there will only be a horizontal scar, as low as possible on the lower abdomen, so the scar can be covered by your underwear. Depending on the scope of the surgery, we will advise you to have a few days of bed rest afterwards. You will always spend the first night after the surgery at the Jan van Goyen Clinic.

The first few weeks, you will be able to do only very light physical work. If the surgery also involved a shortening or tightening of the abdominal wall muscles, we advise you to avoid heavy lifting during the first 4 weeks. Ultraviolet radiation is not good for scars, it may cause them to stay red for an unnecessarily long time. We advise you to keep the scars covered during the first months after the surgery or to apply sunblock.

The result

The result of a tummy tuck is that you will have a flatter tummy. Even though the plastic surgeon will always aim for perfection, this is not always achievable, as everybody is different and reacts differently. The surgery will leave scars that will always be slightly visible. The skin area beneath the belly button will feel numb for some time. In some cases, this remains numb, but this will hardly cause any complaints. Over time, the area that feels numb can become smaller.

Risks and Complications

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, poses the same risks and any other surgery. The wound can become infected, although this is very rare. People who have too much subcutaneous fat tissue run the biggest risk of an infection. It is, therefore, important to have a weight that is as close to normal as possible before the operation. There can also be some amount of bleeding.

Overweight or obesity, smoking, the use of some types of medication, and diabetes can lead to a disturbed healing of the wound and can be reasons for the surgeon to decide that the surgery cannot be carried out.

When it concerns an abdominoplasty over a relatively large area, the surgeon will perform the surgery in a hospital as an admittance of several days is more preferable than outpatient surgery.
