Especially as a result of births, and sometimes weight gain, deformation of the abdominal skin occurs. As much as it bothers the person visually, excess skin needs to be treated because it restricts daily movement and sports functions. The treatment of this problem is tummy tuck surgery, i.e. the best abdominoplasty.

Turkey Medicals member and clinic department Plastic Surgery Specialist Surgeon Doctor gave information about tummy tuck in Antalya and Istanbul 5-star hospitals.

A tummy tuck in Turkey surgery is the process of removing skin abundances that form in the area above the hairy genital area, which we call the pubis, under the belly button, from the abdomen along with the adipose tissue there. This problem can often occur in people who have lost excess weight, whether it’s a man or a woman. It will not be possible to collect sagging skin with the help of sports:

In women, especially after the second birth, a permanent abundance of skin in this area may occur. Again, it would not be possible to collect this with sports. In women, there may also be a bad appearance on the surface of the skin due to large cracks in the skin in this area.

”This condition is a condition that can be partially corrected with a tummy tuck,” said Dr. ”but with this method, the cracks above the belly button do not go away,” was said.

Operations that can be combined with a tummy tuck

In female or male patients whose weight is normal and there is no excessive accumulation of fat in the lumbar region, it is possible to achieve a beautiful abdominal appearance only with a tummy tuck. In people who have a little more weight, more thinning can be achieved by removing fat from the waist or belly button, or from the back area.

Along with these procedures, it may be possible to shape the butt by injecting some fat into the butt in people with signs of smallness or slight sagging in the butt area.

The process of tummy tuck in Turkey hospitals

Tummy tuck is a procedure that only takes about 2 hours in itself. According to the number of liposuctions performed, a few more hours can be added to this time. The patient stays overnight in the hospital, the next day it becomes possible to discharge mainly in the afternoon.

During a tummy tuck, especially in women, we call the plication process, we tighten the November of muscles in the abdominal wall and make it recover in the form of an inner corset. Thus, the abdominal tissue does not stand out in front. This, in turn, is a permanent procedure and gives the abdomen a more aesthetic appearance.

Dr. recommends that tummy tuck patients rest for a week after surgery. He emphasizes that it is necessary to take care of his nutrition. Wearing a corset should be done for a month.

If possible, after a month, take it off at night and wear it again during the day for another 1-2 weeks, the patient will be more comfortable until the lymph drainage in this area improves. After that, a number of lymphatic hand massages or massages with devices are recommended. Checks are usually done in the first week, the first month, the sixth month, as such;

Things to consider for the scar after a tummy tuck

The most important thing after a tummy tuck, especially in the first month, is that the surgical scar that will remain within underwear in the abdomen, that is, it should not be subjected to excessive tension, it should be kept beautiful. It is necessary to apply trace creams, silicone band treatments properly for at least six months in order to correct the trace or to achieve a better result.

It is possible to handle this event in a very nice, non-disturbing way in people who pay attention to them and do not have a number of chronic diseases, do not smoke, or do not have a bad track healing capacity (which is different from everyone’s track healing).
