Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed to prevent sagging skin, cracks and cellulite in the abdomen due to postpartum lumbar problems, excessive weight gain and loss and a sedentary lifestyle. Surgical tummy tuck is performed to eliminate visible sagging and loosening of the skin.

Before starting the tummy tuck operation, the rate of sagging in the patient’s abdomen and the amount of fat are determined. The plastic surgeon plans the procedure as a result of the analysis to be performed on the abdomen. The duration of the surgery varies between 2 and 3 hours. Abdominoplasty is performed to put an end to the fat and saggy appearance.

During the planning phase of the surgery, tests are performed and if the patient does not have any medical problems, tummy tuck-abdominoplasty can be applied. As in all anesthesia procedures, blood thinners should be discontinued 10 days in advance. If the infection develops before the surgery, the surgery should be delayed and heavy diets should be avoided.
