You are seeking excess tummy skin removal and liposuction.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is used to remove excess skin from the abdominal region and to tighten the rectus abdominis muscle. Excess skin frequently occurs in women after childbirth, especially frequent childbirth, when the skin of the abdomen is exposed to the enormous pressure of the growing foetus and its elasticity is reduced.
Another cause of excess skin is obesity. Adipose cells are present not only in the subcutaneous area but also inside the abdominal cavity. In this way, the skin ruptures and small scars are formed. In the event of a high weight loss, the skin remains loose.
These problems can be eliminated through plastic surgery. The extent thereof should be determined by the plastic surgeon individually based on the agreement with the patient.
The tummy tuck is performed under general anaesthesia and takes approximately 2 to 3 hours. The incision is usually made in the lower abdomen region to the sides so that the scar can be concealed by underwear. If the incision is elsewhere and subsequent scarring can be expected, the patient will be informed during the consultation with the plastic surgeon.
The skin with the subcutaneous region are separated from the underlying tissue and pulled downwards; the excess skin is removed. In some cases, liposuction should also be performed to achieve a better result. The wound is sutured and covered with a bandage. If the rectus abdominis muscle is loose, it should be sutured in the middle line.
Abdominoplasty can be divided according to the extent of the procedure as follows:
Major abdominoplasty with liposuction – in most cases of major abdominoplasty, excess fat in the abdominal area is aspirated in addition to the removal of excess skin. Liposuction of the sides is also recommended in certain cases for a better final effect.

Mrs. Jana Hrnčířová, our Manager for International Clients, will be happy to provide you with all the information you´re interested in and help you to arrange your stay at Prague and the clinic.
Due to the fact, that the tummy tuck procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia, you have to attend a preoperative examination. That is possible at our clinic, but also at your local physician. You can then present the results before the operation itself; they should not be older than 3 weeks.
After the surgery, the client should wear an elastic binder belt which protects the area and facilitates healing.
After the tummy tuck, the patient must walk several steps several times every day to prevent embolism. Otherwise, he/she will spend the first two days on the bed. The time period that the patient will remain under hospital care will be determined by the doctor. The typical stay is two days. Additional outpatient check-ups will be determined by the doctor upon discharge from the hospital. The sutures are usually removed on the 10th to 14th day after surgery.
The patient is advised to rest for six weeks and should wear the elastic belt all the time. The post-operative scar will gradually fade over time, and the quality of the scars depends on the patient’s individual healing ability.
