Who Can Make Abdominoplasty?

The abdominal area is one of the most important areas of the body. A flat belly can make you feel satisfied with yourself and make you confident to wear your favorite clothes with all comfort. But as any other aesthetic procedures, people who wish to do the procedure must fulfill some characteristics, such as:

  • abdominal skin is saggy.
  • muscles of the abdomen are dangling.
  • excess fat in the abdominal area.
  • a lot of cracks in the abdomen.

Tummy tuck is not a surgery for weight loss. It is a process to improve the appearance of the abdomen in people who have lost weight or after pregnancy. If you are planning to lose weight or if you are pregnant, it is recommended that you wait for the tummy tuck until the birth is done and/or the weight is established.

First, your doctor will ask you to do some exams to know the exact amount of fat you have in the abdomen (in case you have excess fat he may sugest you a liposuction in the meantime.) and then he will choose the appropriate technique for you. During the exams is important to share your expectations with your doctor, as well yout medical history, because it will help you achieve the best results.

Is important to know that as all other plastic surgeries, there are some points to consider before the operation:

  • You must be over 18;
  • You should stop drinking alcohol and smoking three weeks before the operation.
  • Inform your doctor about the medications you are using regularly.
  • If you are using antidepressants or eight loss pills, you should stop using them at least three weeks before the procedure.
  • You should avoid painkillers, herbal supplements, vitamins and aspirin one week before the operation.
  • You should stop eating heavy meals before the operation.
  • You must have completed weight loss process before the operation.
  • If you are planning to get pregnant again, you should wait until after giving birth.
  • If you suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes and blood pressure, it is essential to tell your doctor
  • If you have an infection in your body, it is necessary to postpone the procedure until the disease ends.

A distortion may occur in the abdominal area and muscles after pregnancy or weight loss. This leads a deformation of the skin in the abdomen.
After pregnancy, the tissue that forms the abdominal wall dangles, resulting in an inflated abdomen. The detachment of the abdominal muscles from each other with the pressure of the body’s internal organs makes the abdomen hanging and flaccid. Therefore, the most effective solution to get rid of excess fat and loose skin is through a tummy tuck.

The process takes approximately 1.5-5 hours depending on the applied technique.
You will be under general anesthesia when the doctor will open a incision about 8-10 cm in the area under abdominal navel and under the underwear.
Because of the incision, there will be a scar in this area but it can be easily hidden because it will remain under the underwear.

Liposuction, breast and uterine surgery and ovarian surgery can be performed along with tummy tuck. The applied method is chosen based on the elasticity of the skin, the degree of sagging and the amount of abdominal muscles. There are two ways to conduct the process:

Full Abdominoplasty: The incision and excess skin are removed below the navel, and the taut abdominal muscles are tightened and the shape of the navel is corrected if it is deformed. In addition, excess fat is removed in the abdomen and waist.

Mini Abdominoplasty: The mini tummy tuck is a simpler procedure, it is applied to those who have no signs of sagging on the abdominal skin. Only the skin and excess fat are removed from the lower abdomen. Tummy muscles can also be tightened if needed.

Abdominoplasty and Pregnancy

There is no harm in pregnancy again after tummy tuck. The process doesn’t interfere with pregnancy and does not prevent abdominal growth. Abdominal expansion can occur after one year of birth. However, you must remember that sagging and stretching the abdomen may occur again at pregnancy after the operation. Therefore, it is recommended to perform a tummy tuck when there is no planning for pregnancy again or loss of weight.

After Abdominoplasty
