Tummy Tuck Turkey

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area.

This popular procedure is ideal for those who have lost significant weight or given birth, as the skin can lose its elasticity and fail to return to its original form. The surgery tightens the abdominal muscles, providing a firmer, flatter, and more toned abdomen.

By combining the tummy tuck procedure with liposuction, you can achieve a more defined and contoured waistline, improving your body shape and restoring your confidence.

Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Procedure

Tummy Tuck surgery is a popular procedure among individuals who want to improve the appearance of their abdomen after undergoing major weight loss or pregnancy. It involves the removal of excess fat and skin from the abdominal area, as well as the tightening of the abdominal wall muscles.

A full tummy tuck procedure involves two incisions, one made across the lower abdomen and the second around the navel. During the procedure, the abdominal wall is tightened with sutures, and the excess skin is removed. The remaining skin is then pulled down and reattached, with a new opening for the belly button.

Mini tummy tucks focus on removing the excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen if muscle repair is not necessary. In this procedure, a smaller incision is made, and the excess skin is removed. The remaining skin is then stitched together to create a flatter and firmer stomach.

Tummy tuck surgery can provide individuals with firmer and more contoured abdominal areas, and improved confidence in their appearance. It is important to consult with a qualified professional before undergoing any type of surgery. With proper care, tummy tucks can result in successful and long-lasting outcomes.

Step 1

Before the procedure can begin, the patient will be administered general anaesthesia and may need to stay in a hospital overnight or even two nights.

Step 2

During the operation, the doctor makes an incision in the lower abdomen to access the underlying structures. Depending on the treatment plan, the surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscles to create a corset-like shape, relocate the belly button, remove excess fat, and trim away any extra skin.

Step 3

Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat from the abdomen, creating a smooth and uniform contour.

Step 4

Once all the steps are completed, the incision will be closed and bandages will be placed to help protect the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have enough skin for a tummy tuck?

Most people assume that if they have excess skin on the abdomen, they can qualify for a tummy tuck. However, this is not always the case. Ideally, there needs to be enough skin that can stretch from the belly button to the pubic hairline. The best way to determine whether you are the right candidate for the procedure is to book a consultation with your doctor.

Do I need to lose weight before a tummy tuck?

The answer to this question also varies depending on the individual. Generally, having a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or higher is ideal before undergoing a tummy tuck.

If you have a higher BMI, some surgeons may recommend Elipse Gastric Balloon, a non-surgical weight-loss procedure that does not require anaesthesia or endoscopy.

How close do I need to be to my goal weight for a tummy tuck?

Ideally, you should be no more than 10kgs above your recommended weight before getting a tummy tuck. It is best to consult with your surgeon to discuss the best options for you.

How soon after pregnancy can you get a tummy tuck?

Generally, surgeons advise to wait for at least six months to a year after pregnancy before getting a tummy tuck. This allows your body to heal properly and return to its normal weight.

Will I need a tummy tuck after weight loss?

It depends on the individual. Not everyone is left with excess skin after weight loss. If you are one of those who are left with loose skin in the abdominal area, you may opt for a tummy tuck.

What do I do before tummy tuck surgery?

Before undergoing a tummy tuck, there are certain things you should do.

These include quitting smoking and drinking at least two weeks prior to the surgery, avoiding aspirin or any other blood-thinning medications, eating healthily and drinking plenty of water, and taking a few weeks off from work.

You should also get all the lab tests asked by your surgeon done.

What is the maximum weight for a tummy tuck?

At maximum, you should be 10kgs heavier than your goal weight before having a tummy tuck. Speak to UK Turkey Health.

Is a tummy tuck major surgery?

Yes, a tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure that will require a significant recovery period. The healing period can take several weeks and patients should be prepared to take a few weeks off from work and to rest thoroughly afterwards.

Is getting a tummy tuck worth it?

Having a tummy tuck can be a great way to improve your body contour and quality of life if excess loose skin is affecting your confidence and causing issues such as skin rashes and infections.

What are the different types of tummy tucks?

The most common types of tummy tucks are Standard Abdominoplasty, Mini Abdominoplasty, Fleur de Lys Abdominoplasty, Extended Abdominoplasty, and Full Body Lift or Circumferential Abdominoplasty.

Does a tummy tuck get rid of stretch marks?

A tummy tuck will remove the skin that contains stretch marks, but it is not a treatment specifically designed for the removal of stretch marks.

Does a tummy tuck lift your pubic area?

A tummy tuck can help to improve the appearance of the pubic area or mons, as it is designed to tighten the skin. However, if the pubic area is particularly sagging, a tummy tuck may not be effective.

Liposuction may be required to achieve the desired results.

What celebrities have had a Tummy Tuck?

Numerous celebrities have chosen to have tummy tuck surgery, such as Angelina Jolie, Kate Gosselin, Courtney Love, Tara Reid, Nadya Suleman, Star Jones, Donatella Versace, and Britney Spears.
