Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

The tummy tuck is a surgical operation in which the excess fat and sagging skin around the tummy is removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened and strengthened. It can be performed alongside other corrective surgeries targeting physical features.

In which cases can tummy tuck surgeries be performed?

Patients with sagging, stretch marks, or excess fat in the abdominal wall due to pregnancy, weight gain and loss, hernias, or certain 

hormonal reasons can make use of tummy tuck surgeries.

Where is the incision made in tummy tuck surgeries? Are they performed under general anesthesia?

Tummy tuck surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. In tummy tuck surgeries, the incision is made in the hairy area 8-10 cm below the tummy. Hence, the scar can be hidden with underwear. 

During these surgeries, generally, the liposuction method is also used to remove the excess fat tissues in the area. Separated abdominal muscles are treated and strengthened as well. Also, it is possible to relocate and reshape the belly button. Depending on the amount of excess skin and fat, incisions can be planned to extend toward the back or encompass it completely. If there is too much skin on the middle part of the tummy due to a significant loss of weight, different incision lines can be planned. We will tell you which method is the most suitable one for you after your examination.

How long do these surgeries take? How long is the hospitalization after the surgery?

These surgeries take 2-4 hours on average; however, this varies from patient to patient. The patient can be discharged 1-2 days after the operation.
