Liposuction-assisted tummy tuck surgery

This operation is done to tighten the lower abdominal area  when there is localized fullness and a less extensive procedure than an abdominoplasty is needed. Normally we remove an ellipse of skin from the lower abdomen und tighten the muscles beneath that area and do a liposuction of the abdomen at the same time. The operation is done under either local anesthetic (you are awake) or general anesthetic (you are asleep). You can choose. The procedure can be done as an outpatient operation or with a stay in the hospital for one night.

All operations have some risk. The main but rare risks are swelling, bruising, bleeding and infection. The main  problems which are special for this operation are the scar of the lower abdomen und rarely irregularities form the liposuction.

Postoperative care:
The recovery takes one to two weeks. Most people are back to work within two or three days.

Complications of Mini-Abdominoplasty:
Although all operations have some risk the chance that something serious will go wrong in a Mini-Abdominoplasty is small.

The operation is performed under perioperative  antibiotic prophylaxis, in case of pain adequate pain medication ca be given.

Be careful

Following your physician's instructions is key to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Dr. Michel will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself. Additionally it is of major importance to comply with the rules of the follow up intervals.

Costs of your operation

As aesthetic and reconstructive surgery is always a very individual procedure the costs can vary widely according to the extent of the operation. A concrete price note can be given with the first appointment.

Financing

If financing is desired the best is to contact your bank. German institutions financing beauty procedures might be available too.
