Cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the stomach
Tummy tuck surgery is a group of cosmetic surgeries that aim to restore a flat tummy because the tummy can be particularly damaged by weight variations during life or after a pregnancy.
Your cosmetic surgeon can offer you liposuction of the abdomen to remove fat from the abdomen, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck to treat excess skin on the abdomen and repair the muscles in case of diastasis.
The body lift makes it possible to improve the entire silhouette by treating excess fat and skin on the stomach and buttocks in a single operation.
Coverage by health insurance or social security may be possible if you have
- a diastasis of the rectus abdominis muscles: that is, if the abdominal muscles of your abdominal wall are damaged and spread out
- If the skin of your belly covers your pubis: abdominal apron
The result of the tummy tuck surgery is appreciated 3 months after the operation on average.
The price of tummy tuck surgery depends on the complexity of your case and the associated surgical procedures (liposuction, laser urgotouch to improve the scar)

Who is it for?
Tummy tuck surgery is for patients who:

To safely undergo a tummy tuck procedure, patients must be in good health. Patients with certain medical conditions may not be eligible.
Some of these problems include:

Patient safety is our number one concern. We perform all procedures in HCA-accredited clinics with a dedicated anesthesiologist and staff to ensure that each patient has a safe and personalized experience.
