Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominal stretching surgery can be performed to correct the sagging and enlargement in the abdominal region after diet or stomach reduction and due to pregnancy. The basic principle of the operation is to apply tightening stitches to remove excess skin structure and restore the relaxed abdominal muscle tension. With this surgery, the tears (stria) on the skin that are formed due to weight or pregnancy in the abdomen are also removed. Mini Tummy Tuck If only the sagging skin is removed and the tightening sutures are not applied to the abdominal muscle structure, it is called the mini abdominal stretching. It can be applied if there is no strong relaxation in the muscles or if there is a strong muscle structure and slight skin sagging. Preoperative evaluation Your abdominal area is examined and excess skin and looseness of the abdominal muscles are evaluated. If there is an increase in adipose tissue on the navel and trunk sides, Liposuction procedure can be performed in the same surgery. The patient is informed about the surgical process, post-operative and possible risks. In order to have a tummy tuck surgery, your body mass index must be appropriate. For this, the skin fat thickness and tension is evaluated during the examination. If there is not enough thinness and sagging, you will need to lose weight. I do not find it appropriate to be done before 6 months after birth. If you have previous surgery, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic diseases such as goiter, allergy to any medicine or food, you should definitely inform if you have medications you have to use. If you are smoking, you should quit before surgery, and you should not drink until the stitches heal afterwards.
