Tummy Tuck(Abdominoplast)

What is a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery, commonly known as a Abdominoplasty, is a procedure that helps shape your waistline and tighten your abdominal muscles. The surgery involves removing excess skin, fat and stretch marks, which results in a flattened belly. The process entails removing excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightening the connective tissue with sutures. The remaining skin is then repositioned to create a more toned appearance. If you have excess skin or fat around your belly button or a weak lower abdominal wall, a tummy tuck may be a suitable option. This procedure can help improve your body image.


Recovering from a tummy tuck

It’s difficult to determine the exact duration of recovery from a tummy tuck as it varies from person to person. Factors such as age, overall health, type of tummy tuck, and post-surgery care can affect the recovery process. Your surgeon will provide a more specific timeline for your recovery after the procedure. However, most patients usually start feeling back to normal around eight weeks after the surgery.

How much does a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) cost?

Turkey is a popular destination for affordable tummy tuck surgery, with prices much cheaper than those in Western countries. The quality of care and expertise of the surgeons there is also top-notch. On average, the procedure costs between $2,600 and $2,900.

Types of Tummy Tucks

There are various types of tummy tuck procedures, each with a different goal. These include:

    • Full Tummy Tuck
    • Mini Tummy Tuck
    • Extended Tummy Tuck
    • Fleur-De-Lis Tummy Tuck
    • Drainless Tummy Tuck
    • Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
    • Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck.

Every individual is unique, therefore, even if two patients have the same goal of achieving a flat, toned abdomen, the surgeon’s approach will differ based on factors such as the amount of skin and fat removal, skin quality, body type, and whether muscle repair is necessary.

What Can Tummy Tuck Surgery Do for Me?

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that enhances your body shape and appearance. It is not a weight loss surgery, but rather a method to contour the abdomen by getting rid of extra skin and a small amount of fat. The procedure involves tightening the stretched abdominal muscles using internal stitches, resulting in a flat abdomen.
