What is a tummy tuck ?
A tummy tuck, abdominoplasty, or tummy lift is a surgical procedure that improves the contours of the abdominal area by removing the excess skin and fat and tightening the muscles.
There are many approaches to a tummy tuck. One procedure is not for everyone. But in a traditional abdominoplasty or complete abdominoplasty, the plastic surgeon corrects sagging by removing excess skin above and below your navel that can be reconstructed. Then, he tightens the skin and the abdominal muscles making your abdomen flat. Liposuction can also be performed to sculpt the waist and the flanks and remove the excess fat.
Abdominoplasty is very popular among people who have undergone a massive weight loss especially after a bariatric surgery. Also, many women wish to have an abdominoplasty after pregnancy and childbirth. In this case the tummy tuck is often combined with a breast augmentation or breast lift for a complete rejuvenation for moms.

Abdominoplasty Turkey : for whom ?
Good candidates are healthy non-smokers at a stable weight (significant weight changes can affect the result) with excess skin and sagging abdominal muscles. If you sit upright and have a drooping belly skin, then you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
A common concern for people considering a tummy tuck is whether they need to lose weight before surgery or not. The answer varies from one surgeon to another. Many surgeons will not operate on a person with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30 to avoid an increased risk of complications. It is advisable to stabilize your weight for a successful tummy tuck.
You can expect to lose a few kilos with a complete abdominoplasty due to the removal of extra skin and fat, but it is not a weight loss method.
Advanced cardiopulmonary diseases, cirrhosis and uncontrolled diabetes reduce your chances of being a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
How is the abdominoplasty in Turkey performed ?
Depending on its complexity, the procedure can last between 1.5 and 3 hours. It is usually performed under general anaesthesia.
During a full abdominoplasty surgery, a horizontal incision is placed just above the pubic area. If there is an excess skin above the navel, the surgeon may make a second incision around it. He then separates the skin and the underlying tissue from the muscles to the rib cage, lifts the skin and repairs the separated or the distended abdominal muscles to remedy the abdominal diastasis. The upper abdominal skin is then pulled down. The excess fat is removed by liposuction or lipectomy, the excess skin is cut off and the remaining skin is sutured. A new navel opening is created in the midline and anchored to the abdominal wall.
In the case of patients who have lost a lot of weight or have had several pregnancies and therefore have a very damaged belly, the cosmetic surgery of the belly can also target the hips and the flanks. The surgeon extends the horizontal incision more laterally and often makes a longer vertical incision which allows him to remove the excess skin from the upper and lower abdominal area as well as the flanks while tightening the abdominal wall.
Once the surgery is over, dressings are applied to your abdomen covered with an elastic bandage. You may also be asked to wear a compression garment for up to 24 hours a day (except when taking a shower) for at least the first week to reduce swelling during your recovery.
What to expect during a tummy tuck recovery ?
A tummy tuck surgery is realized under general anaesthesia. Many doctors recommend planning 4 to 6 weeks of total recovery time. The time it takes for your body to return to your daily activities can range from a few days to two weeks.
It is likely that your surgeon will insert surgical drains to prevent fluid from accumulating at the incision during healing. These clear plastic tubes are placed through small incisions below the main surgical incision. Non-draining tummy tuck surgery can also be performed using a suturing method that limits fluid build-up. Although the patients report less pain, it is a longer procedure with a greater potential for indentations or irregularities.

When will you appreciate the results of your abdominoplasty in Turkey ?
Those who have had significant excess skin and fat before the surgery will almost immediately see an impressive change after the procedure. However, the final result will be noticeable after the swelling has subsided. You will have an idea of the result after a few weeks, but it may take up to six months or more to see the final results.
As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and don't gain a lot of weight, your abdominoplasty results before and after will be long-lasting and your new abdominal contours will be preserved. However, no procedure can stop the aging process and your abdomen will continue to age naturally over time.
A healthy diet and appropriate exercise are necessary to maintain your surgical result, so make sure these habits are adopted before resorting to a tummy tuck.
