Loosening of the abdominal wall after pregnancies or weight loss.
Fatty apron with partial coverage of the pubic region.
Overstretching of the abdominal wall muscles after pregnancy or midline hernia.
Disruptive scarring between the navel and pubic region after surgeries or cesarean section.


Between the navel and the pubic hairline, the loose skin, fat tissue, and any existing scars and stretch marks are removed. The abdominal wall muscles are tightened internally, which can improve the waistline and abdominal contour. The remaining skin is then tightened and sutured. The belly button is repositioned precisely. This procedure is also known as abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Other procedures can be associated with it. The most common ones are Liposuction, the Breast augmentation and the Eye lid lift.

Special instruments

For the aesthetic overall result of an abdominoplasty, the position of the belly button is very important. Dr. Solz has developed a special instrument for this purpose. It is distributed worldwide by the company Medicon.
It is the Navel Marker (Bauchnabelpositionierer) by Dr. Solz. With it, precise positioning is much easier than with conventional methods. The preparation of the abdominal wall is relatively atraumatic and precise using Dr. Solz's special dissecting scissors. Furthermore, a belly retractor was developed with the inventor of Lipoabdominoplasty for better visualization of the abdominal wall. It is the Saldanha-Solz abdominal retractor.

General anesthesia is the preferred method.

Hospital stay

A hospital stay is usually not necessary. Anesthesia techniques nowadays are so safe that patients typically go home after the postoperative observation period.

After the procedure

Keeping the legs bent and the upper body slightly elevated during the first week contributes to a tension-free healing process.
A compression garment should be worn for 4-6 weeks.
No sports activities for 6 weeks.
