Due to extreme weight loss, pregnancies, aging or surgery, your abdomen can creating a hanging belly. This excess skin can obstruct your daily life and physical activities. There may also be irritations and infections in the folds of your skin. We can remedy this by performing an abdominoplasty surgery for you. Your skin, fat and your rectus muscles are then corrected with plastic surgery to make sure you have a tight stomach again.
An abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and lasts for about two hours. You must stay overnight after the operation. You can return home after two to four days.
If you are considering a abdominoplasty, the surgeon will look at your excess skin, the amount of fat and the position of the rectus muscles. An abdominoplasty does not change anything on the flanks and “love handles”. These can be removed with liposuction during this operation. We find it important to tell you during the consultation about the possibilities, but also about the risks of the operation, so that you have a realistic expectation of the end result.
