Linking two well-proven methods
The Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers a more sophisticated variant of abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”): combining it with liposuction. During such a lipoabdominoplasty, only a smaller area of the abdominal wall gets temporarily detached from the abdominal muscles, which makes for a gentler procedure. Moreover, the liposuction part taking place simultaneously with the abdominoplasty at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides the opportunity to sculpt an even more harmonious body contour.

FAQ on Lipoabdominoplasty
Who may benefit from a lipoabdominoplasty?
If the skin in the belly zone is very flaccid and there are additional fat pads at the upper belly or at the hips, then a lipoabdominoplasty performed at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery may be a treatment option for you. However, your weight should already have reached a constant level before the operation.
How do we conduct a lipoabdominoplasty?
This operation is performed under general anaesthesia at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in two steps. First, fat is being extracted from the belly region: for this purpose, we will inject a medicinal liquid into the tissue in order to loosen the fat cells and thus prepare the liposuction. Then, we will suction off the fatty tissue from directly underneath the belly skin using a hollow needle (cannula). A thin deeper layer of fatty tissue will not be touched during a lipoabdominoplasty. This selective removal of fat tissue is more gentle on the blood vessels and ensures proper nourishment of the tissue. Only in a second step will the abdominal wall be opened via an incision in the bikini zone. Next, we will tighten the abdominal wall again downwards and remove any excess tissue.
What is important following a lipoabdominoplasty?
As a general rule, you will be able to leave the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2–3 days after the lipoabdominoplasty. After that, you should absolutely have the possibility to rest and go easy for another two to three weeks.
The first day after the operation, you stay in bed. You will to be careful not to flex the abdominal wall. During the first few days, you will feel slight pain which can be alleviated by medication. The abdominal wall will at first feel unfamiliar and tight. Three days after the operation, you should start with a very light and gentle training programme. This will help prevent swelling and mitigate the risk for thrombosis. During the first six weeks, you will have to wear special compression underwear day and night.
Please avoid any exercise, sports, and other physical exertion during this time. During the first months, the scars may still be slightly thickened and reddened; but with time, they will flatten and become lighter-coloured. You should not go to a solarium or do any sunbathing for about one year.
We will inform you comprehensively in a detailed personal consultation about any potential risks as well as how we will proceed with our treatment in your individual case.
