Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at addressing loose and sagging abdominal skin and muscles. It is an effective solution for individuals who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area that is resistant to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty not only improves the appearance of the abdomen but also tightens the underlying muscles for a flatter and more toned midsection.

Suitable Candidates for Abdominoplasty

Ideal candidates for tummy tuck surgery are individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, multiple pregnancies, or those with loose abdominal skin due to aging. Suitable candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss or a treatment for obesity.

The Relationship Between Pregnancy and Abdominoplasty – Is Birth Possible After Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty can be performed before or after childbirth. However, for women considering future pregnancies, it is generally recommended to postpone tummy tuck surgery until after childbirth. Pregnancy after abdominoplasty can alter the results, as the abdominal muscles and skin may stretch again during pregnancy. During your consultation at Egemed Hospital, our experienced surgeons will discuss the best timing for the procedure based on your individual circumstances.

Interview, Evaluation, and Pre-Surgery Preparation

Before undergoing abdominoplasty, a thorough interview and evaluation will be conducted by your surgeon at Egemed Hospital. During the consultation, your medical history, aesthetic goals, and concerns related to your abdomen will be discussed. The surgeon will perform a physical examination to assess the extent of loose skin, muscle laxity, and the overall abdominal contour. Based on this evaluation, a personalized surgical plan will be created to achieve the desired results.

How Abdominoplasty is Performed – Surgical Details

The abdominoplasty procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure your comfort during surgery. An incision is made along the lower abdomen, typically below the bikini line, to allow access to the abdominal muscles and underlying tissues. Excess skin is then removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened to create a more toned appearance. The remaining skin is carefully repositioned, and the incisions are closed with sutures. Depending on the individual’s needs, a mini tummy tuck or extended tummy tuck may be performed.

Preparation Before Abdominoplasty

Prior to abdominoplasty surgery, your surgeon at Egemed Hospital will provide specific pre-operative instructions. These may include quitting smoking, avoiding certain medications and supplements, and arranging for post-operative care. Following these guidelines will help reduce the risk of complications and promote a smooth recovery.

Risks of Abdominoplasty Surgery

Like any surgical procedure, abdominoplasty carries certain risks. Potential risks include infection, bleeding, poor wound healing, changes in skin sensation, blood clots, and scarring. However, choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon and adhering to post-operative care instructions will minimize these risks.

Scarring After Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty surgery will result in scarring, but the incisions are placed strategically to be as inconspicuous as possible. The scars will fade over time and can often be concealed by underwear or swimsuits. The surgical team at Egemed Hospital will provide scar care instructions to optimize healing.

Recovery Process After Tummy Tuck Surgery

The recovery period following abdominoplasty varies for each individual. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. You will need to wear a compression garment to support healing and reduce swelling. Most patients can return to light activities within a few weeks, but it may take several months to fully recover and see the final results.

Surgeries That Can Be Performed Together with Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty can be combined with other procedures, such as liposuction or breast surgeries, as part of a mummy makeover. A mummy makeover is a comprehensive set of procedures tailored to address the physical changes that occur after pregnancy and childbirth. The combination of surgeries can be discussed with your surgeon during the consultation, based on your specific needs and safety considerations.

Mummy Makeover (Maternity Aesthetics)

A mummy makeover is a customized combination of procedures designed to address the changes that occur in a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. It typically includes abdominoplasty, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction to restore a more youthful and pre-pregnancy appearance. The mummy makeover at Egemed Hospital is carefully planned to achieve natural-looking results and enhance your confidence.

Pricing of Abdominoplasty

The cost of abdominoplasty varies depending on factors such as the extent of the procedure, the surgeon’s expertise, geographic location, and the facilities used. During your consultation at Egemed Hospital, a detailed cost estimate will be provided, including all associated fees.
