As Este North Clinic, we are pleased to present you the details of tummy tuck surgery. Tummy tuck surgery is known as a surgical procedure that removes sagging, laxity and fat accumulation in the abdominal area, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure helps you achieve a flatter and firmer abdominal profile.

Tummy Tuck vs. Liposuction

Although many people think that exercise and weight control will be sufficient for a flat and taut abdomen, sometimes the desired results may not be achieved due to genetic factors, aging, pregnancy or previous surgical interventions. This is where tummy tuck surgery comes into play. Abdominoplasty is not a fat removal procedure like liposuction. This surgery corrects not only excess skin and fat tissue, but also abdominal muscles.

Suitable Candidates

Suitable candidates for tummy tuck surgery are people with a stable weight, realistic expectations and non-smokers. However, most importantly, the decision should be taken in accordance with the person’s own wishes and body structure. Instead of the expectations of others, understanding one’s own body and considering the surgery with the right expectations is one of the important factors affecting the success of the result and the satisfaction of the person.

Recovery After Tummy Tuck Surgery

The recovery period after surgery is a critical process that affects success and satisfaction with the outcome. It is important to pay attention to the following points during the recovery period:

  • The suture line and suture area should be dressed regularly.
  • Antibiotics and painkillers should be used regularly.
  • Drains are withdrawn between 2-4 days depending on the liposuction areas.
  • The use of a corset is recommended and may need to be worn for about 1 month.
  • After 4 weeks, exercises can be started.
  • Outcome of Surgery

The result of the operation may not be immediately apparent, especially due to swelling. However, when the healing is complete, the results start to become evident. The clearest result of the surgery is seen after 1 year. It is extremely important to prevent weight gain and loss during this period.

Surgery Scars

The scars of tummy tuck surgery lighten over time and usually reach a level that does not bother after 1 year. These scars can be easily hidden with clothes such as underwear and bikini.
