Turkey has become a leading destination for medical tourism, with a growing number of patients coming to the country for tummy tuck procedures. Our experienced surgeons use the latest techniques and equipment to provide patients with safe and effective results.

Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens and tones the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat from the stomach area. The procedure can be used to create a flatter, more toned appearance, and can also be used to correct stretched or torn abdominal muscles.

Turkey’s tummy tuck surgeons are among the best in the world. They are highly skilled and experienced in performing the procedure, and they use the latest technologies and techniques to provide patients with the best possible results. They also provide a personal consultation to discuss the best options for you, taking into account your specific needs and goals.

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours, depending on the amount of skin and fat to be removed. The recovery period for tummy tuck is usually about two to four weeks, but patients can typically return to work and normal activities within a few days to a week.

In addition to tummy tuck, we also offer a range of other body contouring procedures, including liposuction, thigh lifts, and body contouring after weight loss. All our procedures are carried out in fully equipped and accredited hospitals, ensuring the highest standards of safety and care.

Abdominoplasty Technique

Tummy tuck is also known as “Abdominoplasty”. Abdominoplasty is a type of surgery in which the sagging abdominal skin of the patients is excised and a tighter abdomen is formed. The abdominal sagging skin is taken out together with the fat tissue beneath and the abdomen is reshaped by replacing the remaining upper skin with the old skin. In some cases, tummy tuck could be combined with liposuction to make the abdominal skin thinner.

Where will the scar remain after Abdominoplasty?

All surgical procedures leave some kind of scar. During Tummy Tuck, the plastic surgeon will design the scar in an invisible area like in the lower part of the abdomen to be covered inside the bikini. The quality and size of the scar varies from patient to patient, but by using sunscreen and scar healing cream it may be maximally reduced. 

Which procedures may be combined with tummy tuck?

During abdominoplasty, generally liposuction is applied. In some cases, fat injection could also be applied. The patients who lose a lot of weight and have sagging on their back can be applied to a 360-degree tightening operation. This procedure is known as “Belt Lipectomy”.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a full and a mini tummy tuck?
Both full and mini tummy tuck include the removal of extra skin and the tightening of the abdominal muscles. The primary distinction is that the mini tummy tuck is normally limited to the lower abdomen below the belly button whereas the complete tummy tuck is frequently used to revitalize the areas above and below the belly button. In other words, the full tummy tuck involves repositioning of the belly button, whereas in the mini-tummy tuck, this is not necessary.
Can I get a six-pack after a tummy tuck?
Yes, you’ll get a six-pack after tummy tuck surgery. It will remove the fat & excess skin revealing the muscles below. Most surgeons recommend exercising before a tummy surgery as well since a healthy body heals much faster, and the already formed muscles before the surgery, will be all ready to pop after the tummy tuck itself. Some six weeks after the procedure, you can start exercising again and tone up your muscles further for more promising results.
Does a tummy tuck get rid of stretch marks?
A tummy tuck is able to conceal and reduce stretch marks on the belly by removing the affected skin, but it is not thought of as a solely stretch mark removal procedure.
What is the difference between tummy tuck and liposuction?
Many prospective patients wonder what is the difference between a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and liposuction. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and reconstructs the abdominal muscles underneath, whereas liposuction only removes excess fat Liposuction alone doesn’t reduce excess, hanging, or loose skin. Oftentimes, both procedures are combined for patients who have both excess fat and excess skin.
