Loose and flabby skin on the abdomen part can be caused by rapid weight loss, pregnancy, or simply aging. At this stage, flat stomach cannot be achieved only by exercise since there is too much excess skin. The tummy tuck performed at ISCARE clinic in Prague removes excess skin, tightens the abdomen area and even makes the waist look smaller. It is a permanent help for people, where solely liposuction is not satisfying enough.
While having the tummy tuck performed, you can have the belly button placed in a different position which can help the overall visual effect. Tummy Tuck is also performed to patients after bariatric weight loss surgeries such as gastric band, gastric plication, or sleeve gastrectomy, where a rapid weight loss has taken place. Our qualified plastic surgeons with over 25 years of experience in this field will listen to your wants and needs and do their best to fulfill those. Tummy tuck is a permanent change of life so do not hesitate and contact us for more details or send us your pictures to receive a doctors professional opinion over the email.
Prior to the surgery, there is a detailed discussion with the surgeon about which approach to take and what exactly you expect as an outcome. You will be informed about the surgery duration, possible risks and the postoperative care. Before the surgery, the doctor measures the excess skin and fat zones and markes these on the body.

Before the surgery the patient undertakes an examination by our internist (blood test, ECG, evaluation of health status). The whole operation takes approximately 2-3 hours and is done under general anesthesia. How to best choose the incisions depends on the type and size of your excess skin and is agreed prior to the surgery. Usually, it is performed in the so called “bikini line” just above the pubis area so that after healing, the scar is invisible under clothing. After the surgery, an elastic band should be worn for 6 weeks. The hospitalization is normally 1 day followed by 2-3 days of bed rest, where legs must be bent to relieve the operated abdomen area. Overall recovery takes approximately 6 weeks. No sport is allowed for 2 month. The scars should not be exposed to solar radiation (sun bathing or solarium) for 2 months. The overall result depends on the amount of excess skin taken away, age, and weight.
- Very little bleeding and swelling (lasts for aproximately 2 weeks)
- During the healing process the scars can slightly change color (brown, pink), but fade out over time
- As with any surgery, there is a risk of thrombosis

You want your tummy tuck surgery to be done even more gentle? The harmonic scalpel uses ultrasound energy to cut and coagulate at the same time. Bleeding can be reduced very gently, as the vessels are sealed at a lower temperature. Swelling and tissue desiccation can be impaired. Therefore, the recovery time is acceptably faster. For additional £ 300 the harmonic scalpel will be used also in your tummy tuck surgery.
