APPOINTMENT FORM

    Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty

    In tummy tuck surgery, excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area are corrected to obtain a smoother and tighter abdominal profile. During the operation, an incision is made in the lower abdomen and excess fat is removed. Additionally, the abdominal muscles are tightened. Afterwards, the incision is closed and dressed.

    In recent years, with the developing technologies in medicine, tummy tuck surgeries have become very popular for individuals who encounter problems such as excess fat, sagging skin and looseness in the abdominal area for various reasons. While this operation can be performed on both men and women, it allows the correction of sagging and looseness problems in the abdominal area, which are frequently seen especially in women during the post-pregnancy period, with plastic surgery methods.

    In tummy tuck surgery, excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area are corrected to obtain a smoother and tighter abdominal profile. During the operation, an incision is made in the lower abdomen and excess fat is removed. Additionally, the abdominal muscles are tightened. Afterwards, the incision is closed and dressed.

    With this surgery, the cracks in the area below the belly button can also be eliminated. Abdominal stretching surgery helps the person gain a more aesthetic appearance by increasing their self-confidence. At the same time, tightening the abdominal muscles can reduce pain in the waist and back area.

    Abdominoplasty is usually performed in the following cases:

    Removing Sagging Skin in the Abdominal Area

    Often after pregnancy or excessive weight loss, sagging skin may occur in the abdominal area. With a tummy tuck, this excess skin is removed and a tighter abdominal profile is achieved.

    Removing Excess Belly Fat

    Stubborn fat accumulations in the abdominal area may not be corrected by diet and exercise. With abdominoplasty, fatty tissue can also be removed and a more aesthetic abdominal appearance can be achieved.

    Tightening Loose Abdominal Muscles

    In some cases, the abdominal muscles can become stretched and weak due to factors such as pregnancy or extreme weight loss. During the tummy tuck procedure, these muscles are tightened and strengthened.

    Abdominoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia, and the patient’s hospital stay may vary depending on the size of the procedure. During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdomen, removes excess fat, stretches the skin, and tightens the abdominal muscles. The incision is then stitched and dressed.

    Abdominoplasty is an effective plastic surgery procedure that increases a person’s self-confidence and helps them achieve a more aesthetic appearance. However, like any surgical procedure, it also has risks and complications. Therefore, it is important for people considering a tummy tuck to undergo a detailed evaluation in consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon and clearly express their expectations.

    Abdominoplasty Surgery Techniques

    Full Abdominoplasty – Abdominoplasty

    The Full Abdominoplasty technique involves correction of all skin and fat tissue in the abdominal area. Surgical incisions are made from the groin to the lower abdomen and are shaped around the belly button. The abdominal wall muscles are also tightened and excess fat and skin is removed when necessary. This method is generally preferred in patients with significant sagging and looseness in the abdominal area.

    Mini Tummy Tuck

    Mini abdominoplasty is a technique that is not as comprehensive as a full abdominoplasty. It is usually applied only to correct sagging and fat accumulation in the lower abdomen. Surgical incisions are smaller and more limited, so the healing process may be faster.

    Tummy Tuck with Liposuction

    Abdominoplasty with Liposuction technique is applied together with liposuction only to correct excess fat tissue in the abdominal area. After fat removal by liposuction, the skin in the abdominal area is replaced and tightened.

    Mini Abdominoplasty

    Mini abdominoplasty is similar to a mini tummy tuck, but the incisions made around the belly button are smaller. This technique may be preferred in patients with slight sagging around the belly button.

    Before the surgery, your doctor will determine the most appropriate technique and method for you. The choice of technique is made according to the patient’s needs and current condition. During surgery, surgical incisions are made to remove excess fat and skin, the abdominal wall muscles are tightened, and the skin is closed with stitches. After surgery, it is important for patients to follow their doctor’s recommended instructions to support the healing process at the surgical site.

    Abdominoplasty Surgery and Recovery Process

    The recovery process of tummy tuck surgery is very important and patients should follow the instructions recommended by the doctor in the post-operative period.

    Surgery Process

    • The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia for the convenience and comfort of the patient.
    • Surgical incisions are made from waist level to lower abdomen. These incisions are planned so that they can be hidden under underwear or bikinis.
    • Excess fat tissue and sagging skin in the abdominal area are removed. If necessary, excess fat can be removed by liposuction method.
    • The relaxed abdominal wall muscles are tightened and, when necessary, shaping is done around the belly button.
    • The remaining skin is pulled towards the operated area and the skin is secured with stitches.
    • After the surgery, thin tubes called drains can be placed in the surgical area and splints and bandages can be applied.

    Healing Process

    • The recovery process after tummy tuck surgery may vary from patient to patient, but is usually completed within a few weeks to a few months.
    • After surgery, patients may stay in the hospital for a few days and then continue to rest at home.
    • Swelling, bruising and mild pain may occur in the surgery area, but these symptoms will decrease over time.
    • Heavy physical activities should be avoided for the first few weeks and gradually return to daily activities as recommended by the doctor.
    • It may take several months for the surgical site to heal completely and for the results to become visible.
    • It is important to have regular check-ups recommended by your doctor to follow the healing process and detect possible problems early.
    • Meticulously following the instructions recommended by your doctor in the postoperative period and performing regular check-ups will ensure successful completion of the abdominoplasty surgery and achievement of the desired results.
    • It should not be forgotten that, like any surgical procedure, tummy tuck surgery may have risks and complications. Therefore, it is important to evaluate your expectations and health condition by talking to your doctor in detail before the surgery.
