Learn more about our Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty, also known as abdominal lipectomy, consists of removing excess skin and correcting muscle sagging. Abdominal surgery is especially focused on people who have lost a lot of weight in a short time or, in the case of women, it is in high demand after pregnancy.

If you want to recover the silhouette you once had or stylize your abdomen and waist, this surgery is for you.


The elimination of excess skin and fat from the abdomen and the strengthening of the abdominal muscles makes what we colloquially know as “gut” disappear.

The intervention

The surgeon makes 2 incisions, one just above the pubic area from hip to hip and another around the navel. He then separates the skin from the tissues, tightens the abdominal muscles with sutures, and removes excess skin and fat. Finally, close the incision.


During the first few days, the abdomen is usually somewhat swollen and you may notice some discomfort or pain. The external skin stitches are removed between 5 and 7 days. You will leave the operating room with an abdominal binder that you must wear for the first month.

Frequent questions

Is abdominoplasty liposuction?

Abdominoplasty consists of removing excess skin, in many cases it is also necessary to extract fat and we achieve this with Lipofit4D. Therefore, this surgery can be combined with Lipofit4D to achieve a more athletic result.

Can I have abdominoplasty if I have an abdominal hernia?

Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery and can also be functional when it comes to reconstruction of an abdominal hernia or diastasis recti. When surgery is performed in the area where the hernia is located, it is exposed, so it is advisable to take advantage and perform both surgeries at once, in this way you can take advantage of the operating room and recovery time.

How long should I wait before I can exercise again?

Abdominoplasty is a surgery that consists of removing excess skin and reconstructing abdominal muscles depending on the wishes and needs of each patient. Normally the recovery after this intervention lasts one month, so physical effort cannot be done until after that period. In any case, it is advisable to follow the doctor's instructions and begin to resume physical activities with caution and little by little to avoid any type of risk.

What is the difference between a tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck?

The main difference is that the scar from a mini abdominoplasty is smaller than that from a full abdominoplasty. Complete abdominoplasty is performed when there is a large amount of skin to be removed. One of the pieces of advice is to opt for a mini-abdominoplasty as soon as possible so as not to have to have a complete one in the future. At Clínica Tintoré, we always study your case to determine the possibility of performing a less invasive intervention with a less visible scar. Depending on each body and the amount of skin to be extracted, Dr. Tintoré will recommend the best option to obtain the best result.
