Tummy tuck, that is also known as abdominoplasty, is one of the most effective methods in the abdominal region. Particularly when excess skin is removed, relaxation in the abdominal muscles caused by various reasons, mainly pregnancy, can be corrected with this surgery and a flatter and more taut abdominal muscle structure can be obtained. The appearance can be made more aesthetic with liposuction according to the appropriateness of each patient.
Similar to the cesarean section, a planning is made by your surgeon by taking the pelvis as a reference, leaving a scar in the underwear, and the excess skin is removed in the surgery, the abdominal muscles are repaired, and a more aesthetic and correct place for the belly button is determined. The belly button is preserved. It is an operation that takes approximately 2-2.5 hours.
The patient is discharged after being followed up in the hospital for 1-2 days. Drains are used in these surgeries. The drain is often removed before discharge from the hospital.Afterwards, you use corset and special socks for 5-6 weeks, and plenty of movement and fluid consumption is recommended.
Recommendations specific to the patient will definitely be provided by your surgeon. If you are not working in a heavy job, you may be able to work within 8-12 days.
Abdominoplasty is a surgical method that can be applied to all patients who are in good general health, whose youngest child is at least one year old, who do not plan a new pregnancy in the future, who have not had a major operation in the abdominal region before, and whose surgery is deemed appropriate by the physician.
