Abdominoplasty is an operation that removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles. The operation is performed on both women and men. There are many different types of abdominoplasty, but the more commonly used are full and mini abdominoplasty.
This is an aesthetic correction with the removal of a small amount of skin and adipose tissue. Usually performed in patients with functional problems after childbirth (hernia, diastasis), with minor aesthetic defects and if the patient does not have a significant excess of adipose tissue (obesity), but there is a cosmetic defect in the form of excess skin. The incision is made in the bikini area. A pre-existing caesarean section is often used for access. The belly button remains in place after mini-abdominoplasty.
This is a method of abdominoplasty, which is used if the abdominal skin is overstretched and hangs down with an apron, the surgeon not only removes excess fat and tightens the skin, but also sutures the muscles of the abdominal wall. In this case, the belly button is transferred. This is a more complex operation and the scars are larger.
It is used for severe body fat, when the skin on the abdomen, sides, lower back is overstretched and deformed and there are stretch marks. This is a major correction that removes excess tissue and fat deposits not only from the abdomen, but also from the back and thighs. Scars and stretch marks are also eliminated. If, after the areas of excess skin have been removed, the umbilical ring is deformed or displaced from the midline, then the navel is transferred to its original place, making a new hole in the skin for it - an abdominoplasty is performed with the movement of the navel. This surgery has a lifelong effect on patients who maintain their weight afterwards.
Reverse abdominoplasty is an operation used to correct the shape of the abdomen when the upper abdomen and chest sag. Such cases often occur after significant weight loss. Correction of the soft tissues of the abdominal and chest walls is recommended to be performed simultaneously, using a reverse abdominoplasty. The incision is made in the skin folds under the breast. This allows you to perform abdominal plastic surgery with breast augmentation and lift, and hide the scar under the breast.

With approximately 86 million population, Turkey ranks 17th in the world in terms of population. Doctors have a lot of practical experience compared to other countries, which makes them competent professionals. It is safe to have Tummy Tuck in Turkey.

You’re a good candidate for tummy tuck, if you are in good overall health but have excess skin (that has lost its elasticity) throughout the abdominal area. You may also have severely weakened or separated stomach muscles. You should be at a stable weight that you feel you can maintain following tummy tuck surgery. You must not smoke, or be prepared to stop smoking for several weeks prior to and after surgery. Finally, you should have realistic expectations for the outcome of tummy tuck surgery. For instance, while tummy tuck surgery will give you a firmer abdominal profile, it also leaves a horizontal scar that extends from hip bone to hip bone. If you are okay with having a scar that you can hide beneath an underwear or bathing suit line in exchange for having the appearance of a six pack, you may benefit from tummy tuck surgery.
You are not a suitable candidate for Tummy Tuck if you have obesity, cancer, acute chronic diseases, diabetes mellitus, inflammation, blood clotting disorders, mental disorders, diseases of inner organs. A relative contraindication to abdominoplasty for women is young age and the desire to have children in the near future. In such cases, it is advised to have an abdominoplasty after childbirth.
The average age for tummy tuck is from 20 to 60 years. Most often these are patients aged 30-45, who are in a socially active age, take care of themselves, who have given birth to children. Sometimes patients bring their mothers, who are already over 60, because it is already difficult for them to walk.
Tummy Tuck is not covered by insurance.
Compared to other plastic surgeries, abdominal plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) is the most traumatic, which explains the greater risk of complications. Local complications that can occur after abdominal repair include difficulties with wound healing, seroma, hematomas, soft tissue necrosis and suppuration. All these complications can be dealt with if the cause is diagnosed and eliminated in a timely manner.
The final assessment of the result of abdominoplasty is possible in six months - a year after abdominal plastic surgery. Throughout this period, you need to see a doctor 1, 3, 6, 12 months after the operation. For the best preservation of the results of abdominoplasty, you need to follow all the doctor's recommendations and monitor your weight.
The effect after abdominoplasty lasts for life, because tissue that was stretched during pregnancy or that was stretched during aggressive weight gain is removed. And if a person maintains a normal lifestyle, plays sports, does not overeat and does not become pregnant after surgery, then this is an effect for life. It all depends on you.
In the first weeks after an abdominoplasty, you will feel pain and tension in your abdomen, which can be relieved by pain relievers. Swelling, redness, and soreness after surgery are normal. But, if you notice that the swelling has increased sharply, the skin turns red, the temperature has risen, purulent discharge from the wound appears or the stitches have parted, you should immediately consult a doctor. With a professionally performed abdominoplasty, complications are rare, but still possible. The most common complications are infection and bleeding, it happens that hematomas are formed, which must be removed. For the first four to five days, the patient will have to stay in bed with the head and legs raised. You should wear compression stockings for at least five days, compression garments for four to six weeks, unless your doctor recommends a longer period. It is necessary to completely eliminate physical activity, including cooking and cleaning the house. The stitches are removed after 10-14 days. In no case should the abdomen and the seam area be exposed to sunlight - this can negatively affect the healing process. Physical activity, sports are prohibited for six months after the operation. You can shower from the moment the stitches are removed. It will be possible to take a bath only after one and a half to two months, and it is better to postpone the sauna and steam bath altogether for a long time - at least six months.
Full-scale sports can be started only after 6 months, however, you need to do the exercises that your doctor prescribes in 1-2 months.
The operation is performed on both women and men.
An abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, so you don't feel anything during the procedure. This is a fairly extensive procedure, so you will feel some discomfort for 1-2 weeks. Most patients think the surgery was more bearable than they expected.
It’s better to totally avoid alcohol and cigarettes during 1,5 – 2 months after the Tummy Tuck.
No, abdominoplasty is not a weight loss method. It aims to remove excess fat, loose skin and correct stretched muscles.
It all depends on where the stretch marks are located. If they get into the skin removal area, they will of course be removed.
If you are planning a second birth, it is better to postpone the operation, because it loses all meaning. The belly after childbirth may sag again. If, nevertheless, an operation was performed, then it is recommended to plan a pregnancy no earlier than in a year. Changes can only affect the aesthetic aspect. No harm to health.
Abdominoplasty can be done six months after you stop breastfeeding. However, it should be borne in mind that the complete restoration of the anterior abdominal wall after childbirth occurs in a year, so it is not recommended to do the operation earlier than this period, even if breastfeeding has already been stopped.
From the point of view of the technique of performing the operation, there is no fundamental difference. Usually, women have higher aesthetic requirements for the appearance of the postoperative scar, and for men this moment is less significant, since in the case of men, the indication for surgery in almost all cases is the presence of an “apron” after massive weight loss.
Yes, absolutely. With any type of abdominoplasty, in the vast majority of cases, the cesarean section scar is removed along with the excess skin.
The navel is preserved and transferred a little, because the skin in the abdomen is pulled down. In any case, the shape, size and appearance of the navel only improve after abdominoplasty.
Yes, this technique is the most modern type of abdominoplasty, called lipoabdominoplasty.
Yes, after all, after several pregnancies, women often have hernias. Abdominoplasty is indicated in these cases, because helps to eliminate at the same time the problem of hernias and deformation of the abdominal wall after pregnancies.
The main peak of the work of a plastic surgeon falls, most likely, in the fall or spring. In general, surgery can be performed at any time of the year, it all depends on the patient's wishes and capabilities.
You can sunbathe after the signs of inflammation have completely disappeared, that is, after about 1 month. The scar will need to be protected from direct exposure to sunlight using products with the highest level of UV protection, silicone patches and a bathing suit.
