Abdominoplasty & Tummy Tuck Surgery in Turkey

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as Tummy Tuck Surgery in Turkey, typically involves an incision in the lower part of the abdomen. The skin and subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen are lifted to the ribs while keeping the belly button in place. The rectus muscles and the membrane are tightened with stitches to support the internal organs of the abdomen. Excessive skin and subcutaneous tissue are removed, and the umbilical cord is repositioned. Abdominoplasty usually takes approximately 2-2.5 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.

Mini Abdominoplasty

Mini Abdominoplasty is performed on patients with excess skin and subcutaneous fat. Those with excessive sagging after extreme weight loss may need to undergo circumferential abdominoplasty.

Recovery |  Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Surgery

Complete abdominoplasty leaves a long scar inside the underwear, known as the bikini line. Muscles forming the abdominal wall are reshaped, and excess skin is removed. Drains are placed for 24-48 hours to prevent fluid accumulation under the skin.
In a mini abdominoplasty, only a short scar is left in the midline, with no scarring around the navel. Liposuction in Turkey  is often used with this method to thin the waist area. If there is deformation in the muscle structure, an abdominal stretching operation (Abdominoplasty) combined with liposuction may be necessary.

Recovery from a surgical tummy tuck can take several weeks. Recovery time varies, with some people returning to light work within a week or two, while others may need more rest. Walking is beneficial for recovery in the first 3-4 weeks, as it increases blood circulation, speeds up healing, and reduces swelling. Avoid lifting heavy weights and strenuous work until six weeks post-surgery.

Post Abdominoplasty | Tummy Tuck

After abdominoplasty, silicone pipes called drains are placed to prevent the accumulation of blood and fluid in the operated area. It is advised to stay in the hospital for at least one day. Patients may stand up for about 6-8 hours after the effect of the anesthetic drugs wears off. After the surgery, the use of a corset is recommended for shaping the abdomen. Avoiding movements that require heavy abdominal muscles is advised for the first 2 months.

Post-surgery, you will have a compression wrap around your abdomen to reduce swelling and bleeding. Two drainage tubes (drains) are placed under the skin and are removed within 24-48 hours. After surgery, pillows will be placed behind your knees to reduce abdominal tension. In the first few days, you will walk bent due to the tension in the abdominal area, gradually returning to an upright position.
