What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?

The body's contour, which may have stretched and sagged due to childbirth or aging, can be challenging to improve through weight loss, diet control, or exercise alone.

If the abdomen's skin has already lost its elasticity and sags, using liposuction alone is more likely to cause additional sagging or uneven results. Therefore, Abdominoplasty must be combined with liposuction.

During a tummy tuck, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. The procedure helps create a flatter and more toned appearance in the abdominal region.

Surgery Procedure

Incision site

Above (or inside) the bikini line

Surgery method


An incision is made inside the bikini line


The upper abdominal tissue is dissected upward and the fat is suctioned according to the patient's preferences.


The rectus abdominis muscle is gathered and tightened.


Finish by pulling the upper belly skin down to create a belly button to improve the overall shape of the belly.

Recovery Process


Abdominoplasty Depending on the Sagginess

01 Small area on the lower abdomen
If the only area that needs correction is below the navel, we can perform body liposuction for the love handle and the upper abdomen and remove the severely sagging skin tissue from the lower abdomen.
02 Upper abdomen & Lower Abdomen
If there is sagging on the upper and the lower abdomen both and it needs to be corrected, the skin on the upper abdomen can be pulled down to the lower abdomen direction to correct the saggy skin.
03 Wider area on the lower abdomen
If the skin sagging is severe and the sagging has extended to the lover handle as well, there needs to be body liposuction performed on the whole abdomen, love handle and also the lower back. And then there will be an incision up to love handle to correct the sagging skin.
04 Sagging breast & Abdomen
As the overall body experiences sagging, the breasts can also begin to sag. Combining breast reduction with breast lifting is an effective approach to address this sagginess.

How is Braun's Abdominoplasty Procedure Different From Other Surgical Methods?

Braun's abdominoplasty procedure eliminates sagging skin and excess abdominal fat, resulting in a more elastic and slender body contour. By reconstructing the rectus abdominis muscle, it achieves exceptional outcomes, including a firmer abdomen, decreased skin sagging, and fat reduction. Additionally, minimizing stretched skin above the belly button can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Candidates for Abdominoplasty

  • 체크아이콘 If the obesity is caused by excessive amounts of abdominal fat and skin
  • 체크아이콘 If the abdomen is saggy as a result of rapid weight loss
  • 체크아이콘 If you have severe stretch marks and saggy skin
  • 체크아이콘 If your abdomen sags after giving birth
  • 체크아이콘 If the shape of the abdomen is uneven following incorrect abdominal liposuction
  • 체크아이콘 If you want a firm abdominal line



Immediately following surgery, there may be swelling and a hardened area of skin that appearsbumpy.However, after about a month, it becomes smoother. 

For the first 1-2 months following surgery, the skin may become firm and swollen. Make sure to follow the post-operation instructions thoroughly, patients should be able to achieve satisfactory results without any complications. 

A compression garment must be worn after surgery. You will begin wearing it within the first week after surgery. You must wear it for at least 12 hours during the first two weeks after your surgery. 

The surgery is performed with minimal incision to prevent scarring after surgery. Since, the incision will be located closest bikini line, it won't be as noticeable.
