The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure called Abdominoplasty in the medical field. It is an operation to tighten skin sagging and tighten the flabby muscles in the abdominal area.
This operation is suitable for everyone who has an increase in the skin in the abdominal area due to many influences, the most important of which are, sagging abdomen after pregnancy and childbirth, rapid weight loss, obesity and heavy fat presence in the abdominal area, and aging, which leads to skin loss of elasticity and a decrease in the frequency of production Collagen.
Although the operation leaves a slight trace and scar in the lower abdomen (the area called the bikini), with that, patients who have sagging skin in the abdomen prefer that their stomach be flat and without sagging and accept this effect, knowing that this effect will not be apparent because in most cases it is its place under the underwear and this scarring over time will be greatly reduced with the help of creams.
It is possible to perform a tummy tuck with other operations as well, such as liposuction from many areas or arm lifts, so it is not considered an obstacle to this type of multiple operations.
Since the operation is performed under general anesthesia, all routine examinations and analyzes are performed before the operation to check on the patient’s health completely, and after the operation, the patient needs to stay in the hospital for a maximum of one or two days. Patients are provided with a medical corset to wear according to the period specified by the specialist physician, and the necessary recommendations are given to help the patient to obtain a good result and not adversely affect the operation.
