Turkey Medicals LogoTurkey Medicals member Medical Park Antalya Hospital Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Assoc. Dr., “If your stomach is not straightening from sports or exercise, you can benefit from a mini tummy tuck operation in Turkey. Changes in the abdominal area may occur due to pregnancy and excessive weight gain and loss. These changes can be sorted in the form of relaxation of the abdominal muscles, formation of cracks in the skin, sagging of muscle and fat deposits. Tummy tuck surgery in Istanbul and Antalya is a plastic surgery performed to correct these changes.”

If the deformation in the abdominal area is not very pronounced, if the skin cracks are below the belly button area, if the muscle structure is intact and the skin sagging is not too much, a mini tummy tuck operation can be performed.

When can it be applied?

This surgery is performed on male and female patients who have developed sagging in the abdominal area due to obesity, childbirth or other reasons and do not have a physical illness.

Especially women who have given birth many times can benefit from this method to eliminate sagging in the abdominal areas. If you want to have children again, you should postpone this operation.

If you are going to have a tummy tuck operation in order to lose weight, this should be your last choice. In other words, all methods to lose weight should be preferred after they have been tried and failed.

How is it applied?

Abdominal lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and the duration of the operation varies between 1 and 2 hours. In general, it is enough to stay in the hospital for one or two days. Then the patient can easily go home.

The surgery is performed in a thin line so that it stays inside the bikini area. Over time, this line improves and becomes ambiguous. However, during this time, you should stay away from harmful habits that will delay recovery.

How is the healing process?

You may have a slight pain for a few days after the operation. You can get rid of these pains with painkillers. You may need to use a corset to support muscle repairs and existing tissue. A corset is put on immediately after the operation and it is recommended to use it for an average of three to four weeks. Thus, you will have a flat stomach in 6-10 months.

You will need to severely limit demanding activities for at least six weeks. You may need to take a few days off after surgery to make a proper recovery. Your doctor will give you the necessary advice about what you should or should not do. It is very important for your recovery process and your tummy tuck results to fully comply with these recommendations.
