TUMMY TUCK IN TURKEY
Tummy tuck is known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure which removes excess fat and skin and tightens weakened abdominal muscles in order to flatten and shape a protruding abdomen and waist. Candidates for the tummy tuck include individuals who are in good general health, have realistic expectations and are looking to improve pockets of fat or loose skin of the abdomen that have not responded to diet or exercise. Tummy tuck is offered at Get Well Healthcare to help address those issues. Individuals who have undergone a previous tummy tuck procedure may be candidates for a revision tummy tuck.
While Get Well Healthcare is happy to offer noninvasive alternatives to liposuction, we have been consistently disappointed by noninvasive techniques for tightening the skin. Therefore, abdominoplasty is currently the only effective option for improving the appearance of significantly loose skin in the abdominal area. Procedures that use the word “tuck” are exactly that. Meaning, in order to “tuck” the skin, the excess skin must be removed. As a result of “tucking” the skin, abdominoplasties have a scar in the lower abdomen, which can generally be placed within the area that would be covered by a bathing suit or underwear. after multiple pregnancies or major weight loss surgery, some women can experience loose or sagging abdominal wall skin. This skin is frequently the result of abnormal relaxation of the anterior wall muscles. To correct this event, our plastic surgeons perform an Abdominoplasty. Using pioneer techniques our best plastic surgeons in Turkey will give you smoother, flatter, more youthful-looking stomach you’ve always wanted and allow you to feel comfortable showing off your tighter, more-toned physique.

Mini Abdominoplasty in Turkey
Mini abdominoplasty or partial abdominoplasty is a good option in patients with abdominal fat, skin too loose to liposuction but taut enough to require full abdominal stretching. Partial abdominoplasty is a preferred method in patients who are not overweight due to shorter scarring and faster postoperative recovery. In partial abdominoplasty, liposuction is applied to the whole abdomen and waist area, excess skin is removed from under the navel, and loose abdominal muscles are tightened. In partial abdominoplasty, the incision line is shorter and the navel position is not changed. The procedures are more limited than full abdominoplasty and the healing process is faster.
Mini abdominoplasty is applied to patients who have given birth but have limited skin and excess fat under the navel. This procedure takes 1-2 hours under general anesthesia under operating room conditions. In the first few days, there may be swelling in the abdomen and pain that can be controlled by painkillers. The drain is taken on average for 1 day. Since absorbed stitches are used, the stitches are not removed. You need to stay in the hospital for an average of 1 day. You can return to your work after 1-2 weeks.

Abdominoplasty Postoperative care & recovery
After the abdominoplasty surgery, bandages or compression garments are placed over the incisions as they heal. Drains might be placed under the skin for any build-up of excess blood or fluids. You are instructed on how to handle the bandages and drains and what medication to use for healing.
The hospitalization period usually lasts for one day, while roughly 4-6 weeks are needed for overall recovery. No sport or any form of straining should be done for 2 months after the tummy tuck, nor should the scars be exposed to any form of solar radiation within the same period. Patients are also instructed to abstain from nicotine for at least a month both before and after surgery.
It is advised to make inquiries with your surgeon concerning the period immediately after the surgery and during recovery. You may have questions about where you will be placed after the surgery, what medications you will be given, and when to arrange an appointment for follow-up care. You should expect to be able to see the final results of your tummy tuck surgery only after external and internal healing is complete. These results may be diminished if abdominal surgeries have been done previously. The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery scar usually takes nine months up to a year to fully heal and lighten into a thin, fine line.
