Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)? 

In tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) operation, excess skin in the abdominal region and sagging structures are removed. If needed, excess fat is also removed by liposuction method. Then, the abdominal skin is stretched and a vibrant and tight appearance is obtained again. However, this is a process that must be managed carefully.

Although the need for a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) operation is of course related to aging and environmental factors, it is mostly related to pregnancy. After the pregnancy period, the muscles and skin in the abdominal region cannot easily regain their old form. The abdomen, which closes again with the tension that occurs in the muscles and skin area and the terminated pregnancy period, leaves a relaxed skin structure and cracks behind. The skin that loses its elasticity cannot hold back and the muscles lose their strength. This causes the sagging to increase over time and the weight causes more loosening. Thus, an undesired appearance emerges as a result.

With a tummy tuck, our specialist cosmetic surgeons will remove the extra skin and fat from your lower abdomen leaving you with a flatter, more defined stomach.  Liposuction is often used in conjunction with this surgery as it improves the contour of the abdomen, waist, and hips. 

Reducing the skin and fat on your abdomen and tightening the abdominal wall muscles – to correct a wide six-pack or counter the effects of childbirth – is carried out under general anaesthetic by our contracted, experienced plastic surgeons who will tailor the procedure to your individual requirements.

If you are of a healthy weight, you may be suitable for a partial or mini-tummy tuck.  A smaller amount of excess skin requires removal and so a mini tummy tuck involves a smaller incision than a full tummy tuck. 

Abdominoplasty can also be performed to improve scars or bulges from hysterectomy or cesarian abdominal procedures. Novarhealth also offers a ‘tummy tuck bundle’ which is a mini-abdominoplasty combined with three areas of Smart Liposuction to produce a defined shape to the body.



Recovery from a tummy tuck varies from person to person, however generally speaking immediately after surgery your abdomen will feel tight and swollen.  In the following days when you stand up, you will not be able to stand up straight fully. As with all surgery, you will experience some swelling and bruising, this should start to subside within 4-6 weeks. 

Depending on your occupation, you may be able to return to work after around three weeks.  Your full recovery period is six weeks and heavy activity, abdominal exercises, and lifting anything of weight should be avoided throughout this time. You should arrange to have someone pick you up from your procedure and it’s best to have someone at home to assist you in the immediate days post-surgery. 


What are the Scars Like?

When the skin and fat of the lower abdomen are removed, a scar is left along the panty-line in most cases, although occasionally a scar may rise higher if an improved waist is required. A small scar is also left around the belly button. These scars are red initially but, in most cases, settle down over the first year. Our expert surgeons and aftercare procedure strive to ensure the best possible result for your surgery and can advise on aftercare post-surgery.

This procedure will be done under a general anesthetic, takes around two hours, and will involve an overnight stay in one of our private hospital partners. 


Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Operation is a Detailed Process

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) operation starts with the collection of details, especially about the area where the skin will be removed, and the personal characteristics of the patient. In this context, radiological examinations are also performed to decide how and to what extent the procedure will be performed. After the process is completed, it is very important for the success of the operation to act in accordance with doctor’s directions. Therefore, this operation, which includes sensitivity from the beginning to the end, must be performed by experienced teams.
