FAQ about Tummy tuck in Turkey

What is a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an operation for the abdominal saggy skin removal, stomach defects elimination, and proportions restoration. With the help of tummy tuck, you get rid of the hanging belly fat that appears after a sharp weight loss or childbirth. Quite often, abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction to remove excess fat and saggy stomach skin.

Duration2-5 hours
Anesthesiageneral
In-hospital stay3 days
Rehab6 months

What result can you expect after the procedure?

Tummy tuck helps to cope with:

  • skin stretching and loss of its elasticity after the significant fetus birth or multiple pregnancies
  • sagging skin caused by significant weight loss
  • excess subcutaneous fat layer (the deepest skin layer which cannot be otherwise disposed of)
  • stomach apron.

Abdominoplasty is not a way to get rid of obesity. This operation may be associated with liposuction. In this case, tummy tuck helps to lose excess weight, but not itself.

Who is the right candidate for a tummy tuck?

The main reason for a complete abdominoplasty is the individual desire of the person. Such a primary method is prescribed when nothing helps to correct the abdominal area, and there is no way to go in for sports intensively and regularly.

Abdominoplasty is performed when the lower abdomen is saggy. This occurs after liposuction, childbirth, sudden weight loss with a huge initial weight.

The list of indications for this operation includes:

  • the presence of excess adipose tissue on the anterior abdominal wall and on the body sides (if it cannot be removed by diet and sports)
  • a large number of stretch marks on the abdomen
  • a protruding belly and large waist
  • pregnancy
  • the hereditary weakness of the connective tissue.

How does a patient prepare for a tummy tuck?

There are several steps of the patient's preoperative period:

  • consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine possible contraindications and identify patient's psychological condition
  • examination of the anterior abdominal wall to determine skin turgor, muscle tone and the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer
  • 3D modeling to predict the outcome of the operation
  • lab tests and screenings (ECG, blood and urine analysis)
  • 2-3 weeks before surgery, a patient stops taking anticoagulants and starts taking vasoconstrictor drugs
  • having received the test results, the patient consults with the anesthetist
  • the doctor can prescribe a special diet
  • during the month before surgery, the patient refrains from alcohol and smoking

How is a tummy tuck performed?

On average, abdominoplasty takes about 2-5 hours. The patient is under general anesthesia. Depending on the operated area and the body fat volume, plastic experts choose the most effective type of tummy tuck.

During the complete tummy tuck, not only the abdomen changes but also the area of the back, sides, and buttocks. Plastic surgeons carry out the full abdominoplasty in several steps:

  • the surgeon marks the incisions and areas that are to be removed on the abdomen, sides, and back
  • the specialist administers the anesthesia
  • the doctor cuts the excess skin, and subcutaneous tissue exfoliates the tissues and carefully reduces the navel
  • the plastic surgeon sutures the muscles with non-absorbable threads to completely restore the standard abdominal wall, back, and sides
  • after the excess skin removal, the incisions are sutured, imposing self-absorbable sutures. The surgeon washes wounds and installs drainages.

How long is rehabilitation after a tummy tuck?

Plastic surgeons apply early recovery techniques to shorten the rehabilitation period. In general, it takes about six months, but only the first 1.5 months are the most difficult.

  1. On the first day, the patient is in the ward. To restore bowel function, the patient has light meals.
  2. On the second day, the patient gets out of bed.
  3. On the third day, the surgeon examines the patients, gives recommendations, and discharges the patient.
  4. The patient wears compression underwear, keeps a diet, and limits physical activity. Also, the patient will have to minimize water procedures and independently treat the suture with antiseptics.

What types of abdominoplasty are performed?

There are 2 main types of tummy tuck performed:

  • Mini abdominoplasty — a removal of sagging skin and stretch marks in the lower area of your belly button. This is a procedure for those who do not need to correct the whole stomach zone.
  • Full abdominoplasty — the most common procedure to remove the sagging skin and fat from the lower or the middle area of the abdomen. During the process, a doctor can replace the belly button and tighten muscles to achieve the perfect result.

Only a doctor can determine what type of tummy tuck is the best for you. Please take photos of your belly and send them when you submit a request to get more extensive consultation and accurate prices.

How long will I need to stay in other country after a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is considered a quite complicated procedure, so a patient needs to stay in the clinic for few hours or 1-3 days according to the surgery method. Then, a patient stays in the hotel for 2-4 days to visit a doctor and control the recovery process.

It takes up to 10 nights overall to stay in a particular to process tummy tuck.

Good afternoon, I arrived on August 5 at night, the transfer took me to the hotel (included in the package), and on 6 in the morning I was at the clinic. After meeting with all the doctors and taking tests (blood), I was operated on (duration 3.5 hours). clinic, no complaints about the service, everything is fine. The doctor Ergir Er is a professional, speaks to the point, does not pour a lot of text, I liked it. After the operation, nothing hurts, now two weeks after the operation there is swelling on the genitals and under the seam, but everything will pass. There was a hernia on diastasis - the doctor changed everything, repaired...

I felt tricked in my experience. I informed the clinic of my entire medical history several months in advance. However, after i booked flights and hotel and arrived in Tijuana, i was informed that they felt my surgery would be too risky, even though i had passed all their medical exams. On top of all that, they charged me $200 for the tests! I do NOT recommend Gilenis to anybody ever. The Bookimed service was great! The only problem i had was that i was referred to a shady clinic by the Bookimed reps are great about answering questions....

I am a Registered Intensive Care Nurse in the US so knowing that Hisar Intercontinental Hospital is JCI certified( main reason I choose this hospital) gave me some assurance! I made the booking through bookimed who by the way were so accommodating with my dates , bookimed gave me more than two options in two countries and allowed me to choose what was best for me. I choose Hisar intercontinental hospital . After the decision was made I was contacted by a international coordinator from the hospital who tells you about airport pickup and coordinates your appointment with the surgeon, labs and appointment with anesthesia. The appointment with t...

I'm giving 5 stars for a great job! The clinic turned out to be even better than I expected, and the staff was so caring that it was worthy of all praise! Very kind and responsive everyone who helped me on my way to surgery. I really want to emphasise that Chengiz (clinic manager) was like my mom and dad. I hope we will remain good friends! The clinic is clean and beautiful, the medical staff is just the highest class, and that's the minimum I could say about them. And of course, the cherry on the cake is amazing Dr. Ali Nurkhan, a virtuoso of his business! Thank you all very much, I got a wonderful experience!!...
