The most common causes of adverse changes in the contour of the abdomen in women are mostly pregnancies and obesity. During pregnancy, the skin and muscles expand and relax mechanically. In many cases, the elastic collagen fibers of the lowest layer of the skin are torn and small white scars, the so-called streaks, are formed.
When is abdominal surgery recommended by our experts?
For abdominal surgery, women are best suited after childbirth or who have lost weight very quickly. Her skin, especially in the abdomen around the navel around wrinkled and can be hanging. The muscles of the anterior abdominal wall may also be loose, although you do many exercises.
For whom do our experts not recommend abdominal surgery?
Abdominal surgery is not a treatment for obesity. The abdomen with exceptional excess fatty tissue is wholly inappropriate for abdominal surgery. We do not recommend the procedure to women who are planning to become pregnant.
How long does the abdominal surgery take and how is it done?
The plastic surgery of the abdomen is performed under general anesthesia and lasts 2-3 hours. It is placed a low arc skin incision in the lower abdomen. Between the hip bones of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue, the abdominal muscles are separated to the ribs and sternum. The navel is cut off in abdominal surgery and remains there like an untouched island. The loose skin is pulled down and the excess is removed. In the case of the direct abdominal muscle, a seam and the attachment in the midline are performed by far. The scar end is located deep in the abdomen and you can easily cover it with laundry.
How is the recovery after abdominal surgery?
After the operation, the patient usually stays in the clinic for 2-3 days. In the postoperative period, we recommend 7-10 days bed rest. For fast healing, it is important to use a compression bandage. One should wear a special compression girdle. The sutures are pulled 14-21 days after surgery. The scar after the tummy tuck gradually fades.

The idea of combining a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with a liposuction is, in and of itself, good from an aesthetic point of view. In order to prevent a threatening reduction in blood flow to the abdominal wall with serious complications, however, the preservation of the vessels is indispensable - as with Saldanha's technique.
Dr. Osvaldo Saldanha from Santos / Brazil first presented in 2001 the complete liposuction of the abdominal region in combination with the classic tummy tuck. He called this procedure "lipoabdominoplasty".
Lipoabdominoplasty is based on two foundations: First, the method is based on liposuction. As a result, the abdominal skin becomes more mobile and can be brought more easily in the direction of the pubic region.
Second, it is important to ensure the circulation of the remaining abdominal skin. For this, the larger blood vessels are exposed and preserved in the surgical technique.
In Saldanha's Lipoabdominoplasty, a special solution (tumescent solution) is first introduced in the area of the abdominal region, which facilitates the extraction. It begins with the superficial and deep suction of the region between the costal arches and the navel to the flanks.
It is important to look for a remaining layer of fat of about 2.5 cm in order not to endanger the blood circulation. The skin together with the fatty tissue between the navel and the pubic region is then removed.
The next step is the removal of the skin-fat layer between the navel and the rib arches. Now the abdominal skin can be tightened towards the pubic area. As a last step, the navel is again performed and sutured at the appropriate place of the abdomen.
The results so far are convincing: Only three cases of wound water formation and a superficial wound healing disorder occurred in 400 patients with lipoabdominoplasty. There were no bruising, infections or wound dehiscences. A small necrosis (0.2%) of 1 cm 2 was observed in this series.
In summary, lipoabdominoplasty is a more conservative method, not tummy tucking, but similar to liposuction. For all patients with a conventional tummy tuck, the Saldanha method can be used as an alternative.
