Abdominoplasty / Tummy Tuck

  Duration: 2 hr 30 min

Because of weight fluctuations, genetics or post-pregnancy you might struggle with the loosening of the abdominal tissues and a “pooching” of the abdomen underneath the belly button, or a bulge of the abdomen above the belly button. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can address these problems by not only removing the extra skin and fat of the belly, but also by performing a muscle repair. With a muscle repair the “six-pack” muscles of the abdomen are fixed. Meaning the annoying separation of the stomach muscles is gone. Dr. Rotsaert focuses on tightening the muscular substructure of the abdomen to create a narrow and feminine waist. The incision is hidden underneath your panty line, placed as low as possible and may be planned to go over an old c-section scar in applicable patients. 

Both men and women might benefit from this type of surgery. Often the loose skin is not only aesthetically unpleasant but also is a physical burden.

It is important to realise that a tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss. You have to be at a stable sustainable weight for a significant amount of time.

An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck happens in 3 stages: 

  • Loose muscles are tightened again. This can allow for a stomach reduction of up to 10cm, resulting in a tighter and younger looking stomach.
  • Dr. Rotsaert removes excess skin and repositions the belly button.
  • Eventually, Dr. Rotsaert often carries out to some additional liposuction on the stomach to perfect results.
