A tummy tuck is a procedure that has both cosmetic and functional benefits. Read more here about what an operation includes and how to go forward with your thoughts on the subject.
In general, we can say that if any of the above applies to you, then a tummy tuck is often the right solution. During the consultation, you and your surgeon go through your expectations to see if the procedure can help you or if there are better alternatives. But if you intend to lose a lot of weight, plan for an early pregnancy, or are a smoker, you should wait until after youíve reached your ideal weight, given birth to your baby or have stopped smoking.
At Citadellkliniken, we always strive for an appealing result, from an aesthetic perspective. The incision is made from one hip to the other, as far down as possible so it will be hidden by all types of panties and bikinis.
The skin is loosened and the straight abdominal muscles are sewn together on the inside, from the sternum down to the pubic bone. The skin is then stretched down and sewn into its new position. If you have a large excess of skin, the navel will also be moved upwards and the only thing visible afterwards is a small, discreet scar.
Sometimes a thin drainage hose will be inserted before the operation ends, which of course is removed before you return home. The operation takes about two hours.
If you are considering a tummy tuck, itís always best to make an appointment for a consultation first. At the consultation youíll meet the plastic surgeon who will later operate on you. A thorough examination is done, partly general, but also partly directed at the skin quality of the abdomen and the position of the abdominal muscles. We find out your expectations and make sure they match your circumstances. Youíll find out how a tummy tuck happens and what possibilities for cosmetic and functional improvement a tummy tuck can be expected to give you.
If everything is good at the examination and you feel satisfied, you have the opportunity to book an operation immediately after your visit to the surgeon. Youíll meet the surgeon's coordinator who will help with this, and who will also provide more information and can answer more of your questions.
