What is Abdominiplasty?

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is an operation to remove excess loose skin and fat from the abdomen. We rebuild the abdominal wall with the ultimate goal of reshaping the abdomen, waist and trunk shape of the body.

Abdominoplasty in Turkey is one of the most requested cosmetic surgery interventions, along with breast augmentation. Thus, our patients get a complete operation that allows them to eliminate abdominal fat and reshape the waist, achieving curves and having a new look.

Other techniques, such as Liposuction, are often combined with a tummy tuck to provide even more definition and contour to the abdomen.

    When is it necessary to do an abdominoplasty?

    When diet and exercise do not help improve muscle tone and a firmer abdomen, such as in women who have had more than one pregnancy, then a tummy tuck may be considered. In addition, after the operation such as gastric sleeve, people who lost a lot of weight can also perform abdominoplasty.

    How is abdominoplasty performed?

    The intervention is performed under general anesthesia and can last 3 or 4 hours.
    Abdominoplasty is performed through a long incision from one hip to the other, just above the pubis. A second incision is made around the navel, in order to separate it from the surrounding tissues.

    How is the recovery after abdominoplasty?

    After surgery, the skin and fat in the abdomen may remain swollen for several weeks and may have fluid retention and edema.
    In order for recovery to speed up and improve healing between the tissues, the girdle is used for 4 weeks. Up to 6-8 weeks they should avoid lifting weights or doing contact sports and those that require a lot of effort. The recovery time of the interventions would depend on the age of the patient, the consumption of alcohol and tobacco, chronic diseases, etc.

    Does abdominoplasty leave a scar?

    Keep in mind that a tummy tuck without a scar is not possible.

    The length of the incisions depends on the type of tummy tuck (Mini tummy tuck or Extended tummy tuck). One of the best parts of a tummy tuck scar is the ability to hide it.
    The incision is usually made low on the abdomen (near the pubic hairline) and can often be hidden under bathing suits and lingerie.

    For the healing of his scar;

    • Follow your doctor’s care instructions
    • If your scar becomes infected, contact your medical consultant immediately.
    • When the incision is covered with scabs you can start using topical treatments such as Arnica GEL
    • After your incision is fully closed, keep your skin moisturized.
    • Avoiding UV exposure can make your scars darker.
    • Avoid clothing or products that irritate your skin.

    How much weight can be lost with abdominoplasty?

    Abdominoplasty is not surgery to lose weight, it is to reshape your body. Abdominal skin excess almost never weighs more than 2 kg. If you are overweight, you are not a candidate for surgery as it increases the risk of surgical complications (infection, wound dehiscence, etc.).

    How many sizes are lost after abdominoplasty?

    After undergoing abdominal reconstructive surgery, patients drop a dress size or two and even more after abdominoplasty.
    While the weight loss that follows is not significant, the changes in the body’s appearance can be quite noticeable.
