What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is cosmetic surgery to improve the of your tummy (also known as your abdomen). It can involve removing fat, usually through liposuction, excess loose skin and stretch marks. It can also improve the smoothness and texture of the skin on your stomach.

This procedure is usually carried out on people who have tried to improve the appearance of their stomach through a healthy diet and exercise, with limited results. People who have a healthy body mass index (BMI) and who want excess skin – often caused by pregnancy or significant weight loss – removed. A tummy tuck isn’t a weight loss surgery, but is often performed on people who have lost a lot of weight and have loose skin as a result.

There are options to have a partial tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck, depending on the desired outcome of the procedure.

Who is a Tummy Tuck Suitable for?

A tummy tuck is a suitable type of surgery for both women and men, especially if they are in good health. Women who have had more than one pregnancy tend to experience excess skin or fat and their abdominal muscles may not be as tight as they were pre-pregnancy.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

You’ll have a consultation with your surgeon who’ll discuss your desired outcome, health and your suitability for a tummy tuck. They’ll also discuss your tummy tuck options with you. A full tummy tuck involves tightening the entire stomach, removing excess skin and tightening up the muscles of the abdomen, whereas a partial tummy tuck only firms certain areas.

Upon your first consultation, the surgeon will discuss the two options available for you. There will be options for the patient whether to have a tummy tuck in certain regions in the stomach or have a full procedure.

There will be a before procedure assessment of the client to make sure that everything is suitable for the procedure. Your medical history will be checked at this point and you’ll then be assessed for surgery.

Your surgeon will make marks on the stomach region to serve as a guide as to where they’re going to take skin, fat or tighten muscle. You’ll usually have a general anaesthetic during this process. You’ll also have medication to take before and after surgery to support your recovery.

Full Tummy Tuck

For a full tummy tuck, the belly button is the starting point or the center wherein the incision will start. You;ll usually have a small incision made in discreet points to minimise scarring and make it easier to hide. Skin will be removed from the abdomen and the muscles will be tightened.

Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty

The other type of tummy tuck is called Fleur-De-Lis. It is a petal-shaped incision made by the doctor in the client’s abdomen. If the client has too much skin in the midline, this type of procedure is perfect for them. The incision will focus on removing the midline skin which is caused by severe skin stretching when the client was still overweight or obese. The scarring on this type of procedure is usually more visible.

Drainless Tummy Tuck

This procedure aims to drain the fluids that accumulated under the abdomen muscles and the skin above it. The draining happens mostly after the main procedure. S If the skin is tightened, the fluid build-up can be prevented and the client can recover fully.

Abdominoplasty with Liposuction

This type of tummy tuck involves liposuction which focuses on removing too much fat in the abdomen or stomach area. The process is to make sure that the area where the excess skin was removed has no underlying pockets or blocks of fat. If you are aiming to have a flat and fully-contoured stomach, this procedure is perfect for you.

Non-surgical tummy tuck

For people who don’t want a surgical tummy tuck, a non-surgical one is an option. This is done through a laser or heat, meaning that recovery is a quicker option compared to people who have gotten the surgery. This isn’t usually as effective as a surgical option however.

Tummy Tuck Recovery in Turkey

It takes about 6 weeks to fully recover and to see the full effect of a tummy tuck. You’ll usually need to wear a special type of corset or tummy-control pants for 6 weeks, to encourage your skin to heal properly and to reduce any swelling. This will be provided, with guidance, by your medical team.

Patients are usually treated as an outpatient. You may be advised to stay in the recovery suite overnight, but afterwards you’ll be free to return to your hotel to continue your recovery and begin your aftercare journey.

Cost of Tummy Tuck in Turkey

The cost of this surgery may vary between £1500 and £3500, depending on the type of procedure you go for. There are also tummy tuck and cosmetic surgery packages available if you’re having more than one treatment, or want to include your hotel, travel, transport and aftercare in one easy booking.
