Especially births, sometimes as a result of weight loss occurs deformation of the skin of the abdomen. As much as it visually bothers the person, excess skin needs to be treated because it restricts daily movement and sports functions. The treatment of this problem is tummy tuck surgery, that is, abdominoplasty. Turkey Medicals hospital member and Turkish Plastic Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. gave information about tummy tuck surgery in Turkey.


A tummy tuck is the process of removing the abundance of skin that forms in the area above the hairy genital area, which we call the pubis, from the abdomen along with the adipose tissue there. This problem can usually occur in people who have lost excessive weight, which does not matter to men or women. It is not possible to collect sagging skin with sports.

In women, a permanent abundance of skin may occur in this area, especially after the second birth. Again, it is not 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 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,” he said.


Procedures that can be combined with a tummy tuck. In women or men whose weight is normal, who do not have excessive fat accumulation in the waist area, it is possible to get a beautiful abdominal image only with a tummy tuck. In people with 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, in people with signs of smallness or slight sagging in the butt area, it may be possible to shape the butt with an injection of fat into the butt.


For the tummy tuck in Turkey is a procedure that lasts only 2 hours. Depending on the number of liposuction performed, a few more hours can be added to this time. The patient stays overnight in the hospital, it is possible to be discharged the next day, mostly in the afternoon.

During a tummy tuck, especially in women, we call the plication process, tightening the abundance of muscles in the abdominal wall, almost in the form of an internal corset. In this way, the abdominal tissue does not stand in front. This, in turn, is a permanent process and gives your wife a more aesthetic image.

Turkish doctor recommends rest for one week after surgery in Antalya and Istanbul for tummy tuck patients. He stresses that it is necessary to pay attention to his nutrition. Wearing a corset should be done for a month.

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


What to consider for scars after a tummy tuck? After a tummy tuck, the most important thing is that the surgical scar that will remain in the panties in the abdominal area, especially in the first month, is not exposed to tension, the ratio should be maintained beautifully. Scar creams, silicone tape treatments should be applied properly for at least six months in order to correct the scar or to achieve a better result.

In people who pay attention to them and do not have a number of chronic diseases, do not smoke or have a bad ability to heal scars (which is different from everyone’s healing scars), it is possible to handle this event with a watch that will not bother you at all.
