A sagging abdomen might be a result of past pregnancies or massive weight loss. The abdomen can be brought back into shape with an abdominoplasty (also called tummy tuck). A small abdominoplasty is performed when there is just a small amount of excess skin or fat on the lower abdomen. In most cases, the belly button is not relocated during this procedure.
Abdominoplasty is a medium-sized operation, which is usually performed under general anesthesia followed by an overnight stay at the clinic. There are many different incision and scar courses for this type of surgery, all these options should be discussed in detail during a personal consultation with the attending specialist – just as the selection of the surgical method.
In the event of complications after an abdominoplasty performed for aesthetic reasons, the costs for the necessary treatments are no longer fully covered by the health insurance companies, hence the treating surgeon should also point this out. The associated financial risk for the patient can be absorbed by taking out our safe4beauty cosmetic surgery insurance.
