Abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to flatten, smooth the stomach by removing unwanted fat and skin from the mid and lower abdomen. The goal of the tummy tuck is to tighten the muscles under the abdomen and give the patient a fitter appearance.

Tummy tuck abdominoplasty is not a weight loss surgery. It is one of the routine procedures performed to treat obesity and after severe weight loss. Abdominoplasty is one of the preferred methods to prevent sagging skin after weight loss surgery.

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

Before beginning the procedure, the degree of sagging of the patient's abdomen and the amount of fat are determined. The plastic surgeon plans the procedure based on the analysis performed on the abdomen. The duration of the procedure varies from 2 to 3 hours. Abdominoplasty is performed to put an end to fat and sagging appearance.

During the planning phase of the surgery, tests are performed and if the patient has no medical problems, abdominoplasty can be performed. As with all anesthesia procedures, blood thinners should be discontinued 10 days prior. If an infection develops prior to surgery, tummy tuck should be postponed and heavy dieting avoided.

What is Mini Tummy Tuck?

A mini tummy tuck involves the removal of sagging skin and fatty tissue below the belly button. One of the main differences between a full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck is that the mini surgery is a faster procedure and promises a shorter recovery time.
