Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Tummy Tuck Turkey, Abdominoplasty 2022


Pregnancy/caesarean section: Because pregnancy stretches the skin and separates the abdominal muscles, diet and exercise can lead to a lack of bony tightening of the abdominal area after childbirth. Muscle tone and skin elasticity deteriorate, especially after multiple pregnancies. Standard tummy tuck surgery restores the pre-pregnancy figure, sometimes including liposuction to remove stubborn excess fat that may be left behind after childbirth.

Significant weight loss: People who have lost significant weight can improve their health significantly, but weight loss can also have undesirable aesthetic consequences. Loose, loose skin and overstretched abdominal muscles can make a person feel almost as uncomfortable with their body as being overweight.

The aging process: As we age, the skin loses some of its natural elasticity and the muscles gradually weaken. The aging process often has a noticeable effect on the belly area, resulting in flabby and sagging belly. For some, the loss of definition in the abdomen is a source of shyness as they begin to appear older and less fit than they feel. In such cases, a tummy tuck can have a rejuvenating effect on the entire body. By tightening and optimizing the abdomen, patients look younger and healthier after a tummy tuck.

Genetics: The general shape of the body and the areas where food deposits are usually absorbed are largely shared genetics. Some people are annoyed by the loose tissue that builds up in the abdomen, which may not reflect their true level of activity and fitness. Even a person in their 20s, 30s, or 40s can be genetically predisposed to a rounder belly.


Infection: Antibiotic treatment may be required.

Hematoma (bleeding under the skin): It may be necessary to stop the bleeding and drain the area.

Seroma: A collection of fluid around a wound that may need to be drained with a needle and syringe.

Unusually red or raised scars may disappear after a few months.
Problems healing your wounds: These can slow your recovery and cause more visible scars with tingling, burning, numbness, or pain when the skin is touched.

Changes in skin sensitivity: changes in the position of the tissues of the abdomen can affect the nerves in this area and in very rare cases in the upper thighs, this disappears after a few months after surgery.



A standard tummy tuck involves one incision along the front of the abdomen from one thigh bone to the other. All incisions are carefully planned before surgery to increase the likelihood that the resulting scars will be easily hidden under underwear, bikinis and other swimwear.

Naval affiliation and sculpture

Most tummy tucks involve repositioning the belly button to make the tightened belly skin look more natural. To separate the navel, a second vertical incision is made in the central part of the abdomen. Our surgeon will create a more attractive result by making another small incision to either reattach existing sea lips or artificially form new ones. Attaching the navy and sculpting the navy are forms of surgical art.

Muscle tightening

The abdominal muscles usually become weaker as the patient ages. During abdominoplasty surgery, our surgeon will tighten the sagging abdominal muscle mass and remove excess fat and skin packs from the abdomen. Through surgical incisions, the skin is separated from the abdominal walls. The abdominal muscles are pulled closer together and sutured into a position that gives them a more toned appearance. The tightening of the abdominal muscles also leads to a narrowing of the waist.

Skin removal

After tightening the abdominal muscles, the skin is pulled down and the excess skin is cut off. Sometimes liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat deposits before the skin tightens.

Closing the Incisions

When the abdominoplasty surgery is complete, the skin is sutured together using surgical stitches. With the stitches in place, your skin cells will coalesce at the site of incision, closing the wound naturally over time. A surgical drain will also be inserted at the site of incision at the same time that the stitches are put into place. Surgical drains speed up the healing process and often alleviate pain from the buildup of fluids beneath the skin.


The results of a tummy tuck are best seen after 6 weeks, when all the swelling has subsided. It may take more than a year for the scars to heal completely.

Under the right conditions, the results of an abdominoplasty can last for many years. How long you keep your tummy tuck results depends on how well you take care of your body after the operation. A healthy and active lifestyle will extend the benefits of a tummy tuck for at least ten years after the initial surgery and possibly longer.


Each patient heals differently and it depends on the type of tummy tuck procedure performed. After surgery, you will be given a course of pain medication and antibiotics, and you will need to wear a surgical gown for 6 weeks after surgery to prevent fluid retention and support you while you heal. You may feel heaviness in your abdomen for the first week after surgery, but this should go away when the swelling subsides and you should get up and take regular walks throughout the day. You should avoid lifting anything that can cause tension for 6 weeks, including, for example, children, heavy bags, and vacuum cleaners.

Patients can return to work after 2-3 weeks, however this will depend on their job duties and they should wait 6-8 weeks before returning to exercise.
