Tummy Tuck


Tummy tuck surgery; It is an operation applied for the treatment of abdominal deformity caused by loosening and sagging of the abdominal wall and / or skin due to excessive weight gain and loss, pregnancy, heredity, aging or previous surgeries. Izmir tummy tuck surgery is not a complement to weight loss or exercise programmes, but is a completely separate entity. Its purpose is to bring the contour of the abdominal region into a form that best suits the body and to tighten the abdominal wall. For this reason, it would be appropriate to postpone the abdominoplasty operation for those who will enter a weight loss programme or plan pregnancy. Also, as an answer to a frequently asked question; abdominoplasty does not treat stretch marks on the abdominal skin. However, the majority of them disappear with the cut abdominal skin and the remaining ones are hidden under the underwear as they will remain under the belly button.

The cost of the operation includes: Anaesthesia fee, hospitalisation and services, medication and treatments applied in the hospital, preoperative medical examinations (Film, tomography, MRI, haemogram, ECG, etc...), special clothes to be used after surgery (corset, bra, elastic bandages, etc...), the fee to be charged by the doctor. As a result of tummy tuck surgery; The total amount to be paid will vary greatly depending on the quality of the material used, the quality of the service offered by the hospital, the surgical technique to be applied, and the fee determined by the doctor. To give an average range (it will vary according to the size of the surgical technique applied), tummy tuck surgery can be performed at prices ranging from 10-25 thousand TL. Note: Changing exchange prices and inflation rates in our country can often affect these costs.

Preparation for Surgery

Before the operation, smoking should be stopped, the use of blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and some herbal medicines that may increase bleeding should be discontinued. You will be ready for surgery after general health screening and blood tests and consultation of the anaesthesiologist. If there are chronic diseases such as diabetes, renal failure, heart failure, you can be operated after their treatment is arranged and anaesthesia approval is obtained. Many doctors postpone the operation to the end of the menstrual period due to the risk of increased bleeding in women. For this reason, it would be good to postpone your operation date to a date after the end of menstrual bleeding.

Postoperative Recovery Period 

Depending on the type of operation, you will stay in hospital for one or two nights and be discharged. The 2 drains placed to drain the blood during the operation are removed after 1 or 2 days. At the end of the operation, you will be fitted with a special pressure corset in the operating theatre or on your bed in your room. This corset, which you will wear for about a month, will relieve you as it will reduce oedema due to surgery and pain due to movements. During the wound healing period, antibiotic treatment is applied for 1 week against infections. The day after the operation, you are allowed to walk with a slight forward lean. Your movements should be extremely restricted for 7 - 10 days. After 15 days, you can start light walking exercises outside. At the end of the first month, walking without a corset and light exercises are done. Heavy sports and exercises can be started in the second or third months. The most frequently asked question is "when can I return to work". This depends entirely on the type of surgery and the difficulty level of your job. If you are doing a light desk job, you can return to work on the 5th-7th days after mini abdominoplasty and on the 7th-10th days after full abdominoplasty. Your personal tolerance to pain and the quality of your wound healing will play an important role in this.
