What Do I Need to Know Before Abdominal Aesthetics?

Having full abdominoplasty is not advised for the candidates who think of pregnancy. Secondly, since smoking decreases blood flow by narrowing the vessels, patients should quit smoking before the operation to see the best results post-surgery.

Some painkillers, such as aspirin, may lead to blood thinning and increase bleeding. Therefore, taking blood-thinning tablets should stop a few weeks prior to the operation. A physical examination will reveal whether candidates are suitable for this operation or not. It should not be forgotten that abdominoplasty is not a direct weight-loss operation, it is a body correction surgery.

During abdominal aesthetics operation, general anesthesia is preferred, however, sedation and local anesthesia could be applied for the mini abdominoplasty operations.

The full-body abdominoplasty operation takes 4-6 hours depending on the size of the sagging area. Often an incision line is made, which can be hidden under underwear, and is 8-10 cm below the navel and if necessary, the belly button could be recreated. A special corset suitable for the patients to be worn right after the operation.

After Abdominal aesthetics Operation

Right after abdominal aesthetics operation, patients would have a bandage around their abdomen which is for reducing swelling, edema, and bleeding that may occur after surgery. With all this, there will be drain tubes placed under the skin. These tubes will be taken within 24-48 hours. It is recommended to lie down with 1-2 pillows behind the patient’s knees after the operation. These pillows will keep the legs bent and thereby reduce the tension in the abdomen. The first few days patients would be able to walk obliquely because of the tension in the abdomen; however, they would be able to walk gradually in an upright position in the following days.

Mini Tummy Tuck

Mini tummy tuck is performed with a smaller incision over the groin area compared to the full abdominoplasty. The operation is applied between the crotch and the navel. The belly button is not touched, the belly button appears to be pulled down a bit after the abdomen is lifted and the stitches are thrown.

Mini tummy tuck surgery takes between 3-5 hours. At the end of the operation, there would be a short scar only in the pubic area. Since stretching will be limited, there would be no scars around the navel. Combination methods such as Liposuction could be applied with the mini tummy tuck surgery.

Recovery After The Abdominal Aesthetic Surgery

After the abdominoplasty operation, blood collection (hematoma), infection, scar tissue problems under the skin are very rare but possible complications. In order to prevent these complications, a resistance (a pipe that will drain the blood accumulated inside) is placed in the operation area, antibiotics, dressing suitable for the wound area, and necessary supportive drugs (gels, massages that heal the scar) are applied.

After the operation, the patient stays in the hospital for 2 nights. The patient is wrapped in a special corset and it is ensured that they reach their social and business life as soon as possible. The patient could normally return to daily light activities from 5-6 days after the operation. They could start their active life in 15-18 days.
