A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program.
Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone a tummy tuck.
Also, a tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised, generally those treated areas below the belly button.

Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if:
Abdominoplasty is always performed under general anesthesia.
Grundsätzlich ist eine erneute Bauchdeckenstraffung möglich. Bevor Sie einen weiteren Eingriff planen, muss die vollständige Ausheilung der ersten Operation abgewartet werden. Dies kann bis zu einem Jahr dauern. Eine Schwangerschaft ist auch nach stattgefundener Bauchdeckenstraffung möglich.
