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.
