A mini-abdominoplasty can be done when you have an excess of skin and fat around the abdomen.
Often this is due to genetic reasons, but also dietary and exercise habits play a role.
A pregnancy can physically, and because of the hormonal changes, stretch the skin and abdominal muscles.
After a cesarean, a “crease” is created that can eventually lead to a “hanging belly” beneath the scar, even if you are not overweight.
A mini-abdominoplasty is significantly less invasive than a full tummy tuck, where the abdominal muscles often needs to be operated on, and the navel moved, to create symmetry.
Usually the operation involves an oval skin flap and underlying fat and any old scars (eg after caesareans) being removed.
The fat layer is sewn together as a support for the skin. At Victoriakliniken we sew we in three rows for an aesthetic and sustainable results. The wound is then taped and dressed with a gauze on top.
The patches are removed after 1-3 days and the stitches are broken down by the body.
For minimal scarring taping should then be retained for 6 months.
Normally, you can work and live a normal life just days after surgery, but you should refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for at least a month after the procedure.

We recommend our patients to do endermology before an abdominoplasty or liposuction, to enhance blood circulation in the fatty areas, and to speed-up recovery. After surgery this treatment can help drain fluid, and lessen swelling and pain.
Some patients wonder why we don't have a fixed price list. We have chosen not to have one as each patient is unique with unique conditions for an operation. Since conditions vary from patient to patient, no surgery is exactly the same, although there are more standardized procedures such as breast augmentation.
The price-range for some surgeries is so great that we feel that we need to meet our patients in order to provide a fair and accurate price. In addition, it is often only at the time of consultation that we together with you will find out which procedure or procedures are suitable for achieving a beautiful, final result. For example, it may be advisable to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction of the abdomen or waist. Our goal is perfection and that you should be completely satisfied with the result after surgery. If several procedures are performed at the same time, the pricing will be different than if the procedures are performed each in itself.
It's important to remember that in addition to the actual cost of surgery, the proce also includes anaesthetic, all medication, all revisits (often three) and often at least one overnight stay including meals, after surgery. Here you can read more about what is included when booking an operation at the Victoriakliniken.
You are welcome to contact us to ask about approximate prices. Your questions will of course be answered as best as possible. We hope you are lenient about us not following a fixed price list as each patient is unique with unique conditions, which is why individual pricing is the most accurate.
Virtually all prices are shown including VAT, as all procedures and treatments except those made for medical reasons have VAT added in Sweden since the turn of 2014/2015. Whether your procedure is medically motivated or not, is also something that needs to be concluded at a personal meeting. In cases where the price is quoted excluding VAT, this is because these procedures are always performed on a medical basis.
