Frequently asked questions

Do the scars remain visible?

An abdominoplasty usually leaves fine, light scars that are only slightly visible after a certain period of time. Depending on the genetics and wound healing, thicker and slightly reddened scar formation may occur in rare cases. The cuts required to remove the tissue are placed so that they are well concealed by underwear or a swimsuit.

Is the result permanent?

Generally, the more stable your body weight, the higher the chance of a lasting result. However, even with a slight weight increase, a lasting improvement in the body silhouette can be expected.

How long will I be unable to work?

You can expect to be unable to work for around two weeks. In the case of heavy physical labor, incapacity to work can last up to six weeks.

Wann kann ich wieder Sport treiben?

Sportliche Aktivitäten können nach abgeschlossener Heilung (nach ca. 6 bis 8 Wochen) wieder aufgenommen werden.

Are there any risks associated with this procedure?

In principle, every operation involves certain risks (e.g. post-operative bleeding, drug intolerance, wound healing disorders, inflammation, scarring, sensory disorders). They also depend on the individual's state of health. The doctor discusses possible risks with you during the consultation and preparatory meetings.

Does health insurance pay for this procedure?

Abdominoplasty is usually not paid for by health insurance. In the event of extreme excess soft tissue in the abdomen (known as the “fat apron”) following massive weight loss, health insurance will contribute to the treatment costs in certain cases. In cases of twin pregnancies which result in sagging of the abdominal wall leading to medically relevant problems such as rectus diastasis (divergence of straight abdominal muscles), the insurance fund partially covers the costs of such an procedure.

Do I have to tell you if I am taking medication?

It is extremely important that you always inform the treating doctor about any illnesses and medications you are taking. You should cease taking any blood-thinning medications (aspirin, aspegic or omega-3 fatty acids) two weeks before the procedure. Such medications can cause increased bleeding during surgery and delay the subsequent healing process. The doctor may decide not to perform a planned operation at any time if the surgical risk is increased as a result of the prior use of medication.
