Tummy Tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery performed to remove sagging in the abdomen. Skin sagging after gıvıng bırth due to rapid weight loss or aging is completely healed after this operation. In case of excess fat tissues in the abdomen, liposuction can be applied first. Thanks to Tummy Tuck, both a younger skin appearance and the desired shape can be given to the abdomen.
How is Abdominoplasty Performed?
Abdominoplasty can be performed with different techniques depending on the deformation in the abdomen. If a full-scale tummy tuck is to be performed, a longer incision is made at the level of the cesarean section scar. In case of excess skin in the upper abdomen, the operation area extends to the upper border of the abdomen. Since the belly button will be displaced by the stretching process, a new hole is created where it should normally be. At the end of the operation, the operation areas are closed with aesthetic sutures.
