Skin tightening is also referred to as dermolipectomy. It is the surgical removal of excess and sagging skin and fat tissue. The goal is a smooth appearance of the skin.

Skin Tightening Procedure

A skin tightening is usually performed under general anesthesia during a 3-to-10-day hospital stay. Exactly how long the patient has to stay in the hospital after the surgical skin tightening depends:

  • the extent of skin tightening and
  • the size of the operated body area.

Only minor skin tightening can also be carried out on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia.

Before the actual skin tightening, the surgeon first marks and measures the body regions where skin and fat tissue are to be removed. The affected skin is then disinfected several times. In addition, solutions can be applied to the skin to be operated on, which greatly reduce bleeding during surgical skin tightening.

Finally, during the skin tightening itself, the surgeon removes the excess skin and underlying fatty tissue. If necessary, the skin tightening can also be supplemented and supported by simultaneous liposuction.

At the end of the operation, the surgeon stitches the edges of the wound and tightens the remaining skin. The laying of vacuum hoses, so-called redon drains, prevent the accumulation of wound secretions and small bruises. They remain in the operated area for several days.
