Abdominoplasty is an operation that allows the removal of excess non-aesthetic skin and fat in the abdominal area caused by loosening of the abdominal muscles after delivery or as a result of weight gain, to reach the old tension of the abdominal muscles. A significant improvement in the appearance of the abdominal region after abdominoplasty surgery is seen. Liposuction treatment can be applied to thin the back and waist region together with abdominoplasty surgery.
Abdominoplasty can be performed in various forms. Those who having mild stretch marks and sagging in the lower abdomen area undergo mini-abdominoplasty, however for those who has excessive stretch marks and sagging abdominal total abdominoplasty procedure is applied. I prefer to do it by combining the necessary methods with Liposuction if necessary, depending on the body shape and the severity of the problem.
Operation and Post-Surgical Period
With the combined operations such as abdominoplasty operations and Liposuction, a flat abdominal region, a proportional waist fascia and also stretching the thigh area as it can be seen more firmly can be achieved without disturbing the circulation.
Under-skin stitches are applied, and less scar will remain. Abdominoplasty is an operation which is performed under the general anesthesia in the hospital environment and lasts for an average of three hours. The length of stay at the hospital is 1 or 2 nights. A corset is worn continuously in the first week after the surgery, and it is only worn at day time in the next period. Patients can return their normal life in one or two weeks.
There is no need to remove the stitches. The surgical scar is planned to remain in swimsuit and underwear.
