Abdominoplasty

Abdominal tissue is a body part that loses its flexibility with age in both men and women and deforms downwards with the effect of gravity. Abdominal sagging, which has become an important problem especially for postpartum women, can be treated with various methods. Diet, doing sports and some operations are all methods applied to achieve a healthy-looking and fit body. Long-term diets and strenuous exercises both take time and have psychological effects. Therefore, the long-term results are not satisfactory. You can have a taut, fit stomach with easy and short-term methods. Abdominoplasty is the operation performed to remove excess skin and fat tissue around the navel in the abdomen and to recover muscle laxity in the abdomen. The medical name of the surgery is Abdominoplasty.

What are the Advantages of Abdominoplasty?

After tummy tuck surgery, you will have a taut and fit body. Strong abdominal muscles and a correct positioning of the belly button are obtained. The structure of the damaged and sagging abdominal skin is recovered. The internal abdominal muscles are strengthened and the deformities in the body disappear. In cases where sports and diet are insufficient, lubrication is prevented. You have a beautiful body with an extremely aesthetic body and tight abdominal structure. The scar is not very visible and is usually under the underwear area. It is a surgery that does not involve much risk. Butt lift aesthetics is one of the less risky operations as tummy tuck surgery.

Who Can Be Applied to Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Abdominoplasty is the most suitable and permanent procedure for individuals with postpartum abdominal sagging or resistant fat accumulation to remove sagging caused by repeated weight gain. The decision for surgery should be made by a plastic surgeon. This surgery may be required if the sagging belly circumference and weakened abdominal muscles can no longer respond to diet and exercise. If those who want to have tummy tuck surgery have the idea of pregnancy, this should be postponed. It should not be pregnant for 3 years after the operation. This should be considered later, as it will take several months for the body to recover after surgery.

With age, the metabolism of every person slows down, and especially with the accumulation of fat around the belly and the loss of strength of the muscles, the abdominal region begins to get fat and sag downwards. This process can accelerate with rapid weight gains, pregnancies, genetic structure of the individual and excess fat tissue in the body. Problems such as excessive sweating and fungal infection, in addition to having cracks in the abdominal skin and difficulty in finding suitable clothes due to excess skin, also reduce the quality of life. Correcting this image and achieving a healthy appearance with sports and diets are both very difficult and generally not long-term. Stretching provides a permanent and definitive solution to such problems.

Abdominoplasty, that is, tummy tuck surgery, is a plastic surgery operation and is one of the most effective operations of plastic surgery. It is an ideal method especially for the elimination of sagging after childbirth and deficiencies caused by the loss of the old form of the muscles in the abdominal region. With too much weight gain and loss, unwanted images such as sagging, cracks and diaper rash occur on the abdominal skin. The fastest solution to this problem is this surgery. It is possible to have a flat and tight abdomen by removing the excess fat in the abdominal region and removing the sagging skin with the operation. While it is possible to remove only excess fat through a cannula with liposuction, it is possible to get rid of both excess skin and accumulated fat with tummy tuck procedure. Abdominoplasty can also be used to remove excess skin after liposuction. Depending on the shape of the deformed abdominal skin, abdominoplasty can be performed in different techniques. In some cases, it may be necessary to reposition the belly button.

Before the operation, the operation is decided by the specialist physician as a result of detailed examination and radiological images. General anesthesia is generally preferred for surgeries, but in some cases it can be performed with local anesthesia accompanied by painkillers and sedatives. The stretching process usually begins with an incision in and around the navel extending from one hip to the other, and the navel is shifted upwards. Sometimes it can be in the form of a “mini abdominoplasty” and the belly button does not need to be relocated. However, in large-scale operations, the location of the navel is changed. Abdominal skin is lifted up to the ribs, excess fat layer and skin are removed from the body, hernias formed in these areas are cleaned. Stretch marks and cellulite in the abdomen are removed from the body.

With the operation, the fat layer and excess skin in the lower, middle and upper abdomen are removed. In the surgery, the skin is stretched downwards and the skin is removed with the excess fat layer. The hub is slid upwards and put in its new place. In extended operations, hip lift is also performed. Whether the procedure will be a mini tummy tuck or a wide tummy tuck is decided according to the anatomy of the individual and the technical method to be used. If necessary, Liposuction can also be combined with a tummy tuck.

It may be necessary to stay in the hospital for at least one day after abdominoplasty surgery. It is a normal course to observe mild edema and pain after abdominoplasty. Strong painkillers may be needed for the first night. However, it is possible to direct this process with simple painkillers afterwards. Edema and pain may continue for a few days, gradually decreasing. During this period, the use of painkillers is required. Since excess skin will be removed after the surgery, a potential gap develops at first where this skin is and drains will be placed in this space to avoid any adverse events. These drains will ensure that the bleeding and leaks that may occur in the body do not remain under the skin. Usually, the drains are removed two to three days after the surgery and the stitches are removed after a period of three weeks. After a few months, the abdomen completely recovers and the individual begins to feel the same as before. Although the surgical scars do not disappear completely, they can be hidden because they are not seen too often. After tummy tuck surgery, it is possible for the individual to maintain his/her body shape for years by taking care of himself/herself and exercising regularly.

Abdominoplasty, like any surgery, carries a risk, albeit a small one. Antibiotics are used to eliminate infections that may occur after the surgery, and the dirty blood accumulated in the formed cavity is taken out by means of drains. In other words, the risk of the surgery is very low and possible problems can be solved with short-term controls. If the opinions and recommendations of the specialist physician are taken into consideration, all risks will be eliminated.

Tummy tuck surgeries are priced according to the type. The cost of these operations may also vary depending on various factors such as the patient’s age, weight or health status, and the name of the hospital’s location. Considering the cost of the operations, the surgeon’s fee, facility costs, anesthesia fees, drugs used, clothes worn after the operation or medical examination fees before the operation can be added to this cost. Stretching surgery fees can make a difference from hospital to hospital. The name of the surgeon who performed the surgery is also effective in the price of this surgery.

Another issue that those who have had tummy tuck surgery wonder about because excess fat affects the image badly is the question of whether I can have a second surgery if I am faced with excess fat again after the surgery. After a period of about one year after the operation, the operation can be performed again. However, the second operation to be performed may not be as extensive as the first operation. Since the body is quite worn out in the first surgery, very wearing procedures are not performed in the second surgery. Another operation that can be done in surgery is liposuction. In classical tummy tuck surgeries, it cannot be performed together with this surgery, but according to the latest technological surgical methods, as much adipose tissue can be removed as desired. This is hidden in the method the doctor will use.
