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.
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.
