This surgery offers help to women who suffer from stretched or even torn muscles after pregnancy or stretched muscles and torn, scarred skin together with fat deposits on their stomachs or scarring caused by caesarean section or hysterectomy.
During surgery, a cut will be made from one hip to the other above the vaginal bone and around the navel, which will remain untouched.
A tummy tuck tightens stretched muscles and removes loose skin and excess fat.
The most common complications are infection of the wound and haematoma. Both complications are easy to treat.
This surgery is only performed under GENERAL ANAESTHETIC. The best method of anaesthesia will be determined by the physician-anaesthesiologist in our clinic on the basis of your pre-surgery interview.
Patients are required to stay in our clinic in the care of our staff for at least one day after general anaesthetic.
The following must be submitted to the anaesthesiologist before general anaesthesia: ECG, BLOOD (VENOUS) AND URINE test results.
If necessary, the tests will be organised by our clinic.

Stitches will be removed after about 14-16 days.
