Service Description

Tummy Tuck is the consistent operation of the removal of excess skin and abdominal fat and correction of muscle flaccidity. This situation of excess skin and abdominal wall relaxation usually occurs in patients who have had weight gain and subsequent loss or women who have had multiple pregnancies.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, practiced an incision above the pubic hair extending to the hips. The skin of the abdomen is released and, if necessary, reinforce the abdominal muscles with stitches. Is pulled down and excess skin is removed.

Postoperatively the patient take a special belt, reinforced with a bandage, according to each individual case. The scars around the navel and the lower abdomen will improve with the passage of time. However, in some cases it is necessary to perform a local anesthetic scar revision.
