Tummy Tuck in Turkey

Tummy tuck surgery is an aesthetic surgery performed to remove the sagging in the abdominal area, which has a negative aesthetic effect on the person's psychology. It is also known as loose skin removal or excess skin removal surgery and in medical terminology, abdominoplasty surgery. 

During abdominoplasty surgery, excess skin and fat tissue are removed, the abdominal connective tissue is tightened, and a tighter, flatter abdomen is obtained. In addition to removing fat in the abdominal area, stretch marks below the belly button and sagging skin can also be corrected. These operations are generally preferred by those with excessive fat in the belly area, sagging abdominal skin and a weak abdominal wall. If you wonder “how long does a tummy tuck take?”, tummy tuck surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes around 2-5 hours depending on the surgery to remove loose skin.

Some of the reasons that cause excessive fat and loss of elasticity in the skin of the abdominal area are listed below:

1)    Excessive weight gain or loss 
2)    Post-pregnancy 
3)    Age-related deformations 
4)    Body type 
5)    Abdominal surgeries

No matter how much diet and exercise such patients do, they cannot eliminate the deformation in the abdominal area.

In Which Situation Is Tummy Tuck Surgery Performed?

Tummy tuck surgery is performed in cases where there is excessive fat and loss of elasticity in the abdominal area due to certain reasons. These reasons include:

1)    Deformations due to aging,
2)    Excessive weight loss or weight gain,
3)    Genetic factors (body type, metabolism, etc.),
4)    Post-pregnancy period,
5)    Effects of past surgeries.

It can be applied to people over the age of 18 who are in good health for surgery, have realistic expectations, and want to improve their physical appearance. Those with chronic and serious diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes are not eligible for this surgery. In addition, patients with a body mass index (BMI) of thirty and above are recommended to lose their ideal weight first. Abdominoplasty is not considered suitable for patients under the age of 18 due to their still developing age.

As with every plastic surgery, scars remain in tummy tuck surgery. However, these scars fade over time and are planned to be invisible under underwear.


Tummy Tuck Surgery Techniques

Tummy tuck surgery techniques are mainly divided into two categories, mini and full tummy tuck. 

Mini Tummy Tuck

Partial or mini tummy tuck surgery is a less invasive operation than a full tummy tuck surgery. This method is more suitable for patients who have partial fat only below the belly button, that is, in the lower part of the abdomen. There is usually no change in the location of the belly button during the surgery. The healing process of this operation is faster and the surgery can be performed with a smaller incision.

Full Tummy Tuck

In full tummy tuck surgery, all areas of the abdomen are treated. In this procedure, the skin, tissue and muscles are shaped to obtain a tighter abdominal area. Since excess skin tissue will be removed, the location of the belly button is changed and reattached to a more natural-looking position. Unlike the mini tummy tuck surgery, the incision scar is larger. However, the incision scars are in the bikini area and they will fade over time, looking like a pink line.

Before the tummy tuck surgery, the surgeon will perform various and comprehensive tests to determine which technique is more suitable for the patient and will decide the best option accordingly. 

Tummy Tuck Recovery and Results

For better tummy tuck results, you must follow post-operative guidelines and provide good aftercare. Including but not limited to:

1)    The patient should avoid strenuous activity for a couple of weeks.

2)    The patient should not carry heavy loads or objects that could damage the abdominal muscles.
3)    The patient may be asked to use a corset (abdominal binder) for a while. With this corset, fluid accumulation can be prevented and it will also play a supportive role in the recovery of the abdominal muscles.

4)    To prevent allergies, the patient should not use moisturizing creams on the abdomen and waist area.

5)    The patient should sleep in a certain inclined position, which the doctor determines based on the condition. He/she also avoid lying in a flat position.

6)    Pregnancy should be absolutely avoided after the tummy tuck surgery.

7)    The patient should avoid swimming for at least two months.

tummy tuck result

It is normal to see swelling in the area on which the tummy tuck surgery has been performed. This swelling subsides roughly six months following the surgery. Abdominoplasty surgery will provide long-lasting results provided that patients pay attention to weight balance. This surgery results in a natural-looking flat tummy and highly increased self-esteem.
