Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Cosmetic Abdomen Surgery
Age progression, successive pregnancies, and weight variation may have a negative influence on the body (excess fat in the stomach, relaxed muscles, and appearance of stretch marks). As a result, people are looking for an effective solution to eliminate this excess fat and have a flat stomach again. Several surgeries can accomplish these goals, such as abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck surgery.
Tummy Tuck in Turkey, Istanbul and Izmir : What is this Surgical Technique ?
Tummy Tuck surgery (also called abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure performed on the belly, but it is lighter and less complex than liposuction. This technique is recommended for people who suffer from excess skin and fat in the stomach that do not disappear through sports activities.
Thus, the mini-abdominoplasty consists in removing an ellipse of skin and fat (almost 15 cm long) from the lower part of the abdomen. After the suture of the abdominal muscles, the surgeon performs liposuction to recreate a thinner abdominal belt.
This operation lasts about 2 hours and the scar in the belly is shorter than caesarean section.
Indeed, to guarantee the success of the operation, it is necessary to make a diet and sports activities before a few weeks of the operation in order to reduce the amount of fat as well as the follow-up of the surgeon’s recommendations (perform a complete diagnosis and necessary examinations).
This procedure is simpler than other cosmetic operations, but has some side effects such as dizziness, headaches, nausea, excessive bleeding and coagulation, and risk of infection.
Non-invasive techniques like laser, cryolipolysis or radio frequency require time to see the final effects.

Abdominoplasty or mini abdominoplasty?
Skin looseness rarely occurs only under the navel. This is why mini abdominoplasty is much less frequently performed than abdominoplasty.
In the mini abdominoplasty, the skin detachment only concerns the skin under the navel and does not extend beyond, while in the abdominoplasty, the skin detachment goes up to the ribs and sternum.
In the mini tummy tuck, the belly button can be slightly lowered. There will be no scarring around the navel unless a muscle tightening above the navel is achieved.
If the scar is slightly shorter in the mini abdominoplasty, this does not mean that the mini tummy tuck leaves only a tiny scar.
What are the characteristics of abdominoplasty in men?
Liposuction provides a solution particularly suitable for men suffering from localized fatty deposits in the abdomen, in front of the abdominal muscles, and in the flanks. When the indication is well weighed, with a lack of weight and a good skin quality provided with a good retraction capacity, liposuction brings excellent results in men. They are often quite young men. When the silhouette allows it, liposuction can enhance the muscular reliefs at the level of the abdomen which is effect sought by many men.
