Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to flatten the stomach by removing unwanted fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen. The aim of tummy tuck surgery is to tighten the muscles under the abdomen and to provide the patient a more fit appearance.

Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss surgery. It is one of the routine procedures that is performed in obesity treatments and after heavy weight loss. Abdominoplasty is one of the best preferred methods to prevent saggy skin after weight loss surgery. 

Abdominoplasty is not performed only for female patients in Turkey. Male patients who want to have a flat abdomen can also benefit from this procedure.

Before starting the tummy tuck operation, the rate of sagging in the patient’s abdomen and the amount of fat are determined. The plastic surgeon plans the procedure as a result of the analysis to be performed on the abdomen. The duration of the surgery varies between 2 and 3 hours. Abdominoplasty is performed to put an end to the fat and saggy appearance.

During the planning phase of the surgery, tests are performed and if the patient does not have any medical problems, tummy tuck-abdominoplasty can be applied. As in all anesthesia procedures, blood thinners should be discontinued 10 days in advance. If the infection develops before the surgery, the surgery should be delayed and heavy diets should be avoided.
