Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to prevent excessive sagging in the abdomen. Problems such as weak abdominal muscles, sagging tissues, cracked skin problems can be corrected by abdominoplasty.


Abdominoplasty is the surgery to remove the excess fat tissue in the middle and lower abdomen and to recover the saggy skin. This procedure can be performed as full abdominoplasty and partial (mini) tummy tuck surgery. The method is decided according to the degree of sagging and the surgery is performed.

Partial tummy tuck is usually applied in mild sagging. In partial abdominoplasty, all excess skin and skin tissue are removed as in full abdominoplasty, but unlike the umbilical region, no stretching is applied.

With this method, which does not treat obesity, sagging in the abdomen is recovered under general anesthesia, excess skin and fat tissues are removed and the skin is stretched. Thus, the body shape reaches a more ideal form and positive effects are observed in the psychology of the people.


Abdominoplasty is performed for rapid weight gain or loss or for the recovery of sagging after childbirth. In order to perform this operation in overweight people, first of all, people are expected to lose weight with certain diet programs. Abdominoplasty is not performed unless the planned amount of weight is lost.

If there is a lot of regional fat tissue in the body of the person, but there is no sagging in the skin, the liposuction method is sufficient and in this case, tummy tuck is not applied. Surgical procedures can be easily performed in people who are not overweight, but have regional excesses and sagging.

Generally, women with multiple births or those who are overweight and lose these weights quickly are the best candidates for abdominoplasty. With this method, skin and tissue sagging that creates an undesirable appearance in the abdomen is eliminated.

HOW IS A Tummy tuck APPLIED?

Our Promed Clinic specialist surgeons examine the examinations of people with excess and decide on the appropriate procedures. In addition to regional excesses, the tummy tuck procedure is initiated in order to recover the sagging seen in people.

During the operation, excess fat tissue is removed from the entire abdomen and waist area, excess skin under the navel is removed, and a stretching procedure is applied to the area above the navel. In the mini tummy tuck process, after all the excess tissues are removed, the procedure is completed without stretching the upper belly area.

Abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation varies according to the width of the area and whether the application is complete or partial. The operation, which takes 1-2 hours in partial applications, can take 3-4 hours in full abdominoplasty applications.


After abdominoplasty surgery, it is usually necessary to stay in the hospital within 1-2 days and at the end of this process, the people are discharged after completing the necessary examinations. Drains placed during surgery are usually removed within 3-5 days.

It is recommended not to take a bath for 2-3 days during the postoperative recovery period. At the end of this process, you can take a bath and return to light daily work, but avoiding intense activities, not lifting heavy and avoiding leaning forward while walking are among the behaviors that should be considered. After a week, the stitches are removed. After the surgery, it is possible to return to work life in 3-4 weeks, depending on the recovery speed of the person.

After the surgery, people are expected to wear a special corset for 1 month. This corset helps the abdomen into the desired shape. It may take longer for the area to recover without using a corset. The duration of the reduction of suture and incision scars due to the operation varies between 3-6 months.
