Abdominal stretching surgery is one of the treatment methods that have been started to be applied as a result of the developments in medicine in recent years for individuals with excess fat, skin excess, sagging and similar problems in the abdomen for various reasons. Although it can be seen in both genders, looseness and sagging in the abdominal region, which is frequently seen especially in women and in the post-pregnancy period, can be stretched and given a smooth appearance with the help of a simple operation applied with aesthetic surgery methods. In this way, the sagging skin appearance is eliminated, excess fat is removed and the abdominal region is flattened, especially the cracks in the part below the belly button are eliminated.
Abdominoplasty, also called abdominoplasty, is a kind of plastic surgery operation. It is one of the most effective methods among the types of surgery applied in the fields of abdominal and belly aesthetics. Especially after the pregnancy period, the muscles and skin in the abdomen cannot return to their original form. As a result, deformations occur in the abdomen and the sagging belly part causes an aesthetically unpleasant appearance. The level of deformation is much higher in pregnancies resulting in excessive weight gain and in women who have given birth more than twice. After pregnancy, an undesirable appearance occurs with the loosening of the connective tissue in the abdominal wall, the protrusion of the abdominal wall, the appearance of bloating, abundance and cracks in the abdomen. It is often not possible to completely destroy this image and regain the old appearance of the abdominal region with methods such as sports and diet that the person will apply himself. In tummy tuck surgery, which solves this problem with a single operation, the loosened and sagging abdominal skin is recovered and the excess fat concentrated in this area is removed, allowing the person to have a flat stomach in a short time. As with any operation, there are some risks of complications that may occur after tummy tuck. Bleeding and infection are the most important of these. For this reason, medications given by the physician should be used after the surgery, sudden movements should be avoided and the dressings should be renewed regularly.
How is tummy tuck surgery done?
The technique applied in tummy tuck surgery, the area where the skin will be taken, and other issues are decided in the light of the detailed examination and the examined radiological images by the physician. The saggy and cracked skin in the part up to the belly button area is removed over a line to be drawn sideways from the area called the cesarean section mark level in general, and the skin in the upper part of the belly button is stretched downwards. The belly button is also reconstructed in order to bring it into the appropriate position. In addition to sagging and looseness, if there is an excessive lubrication problem, excess fat in the abdomen is removed by a method called liposuction. Thanks to the sutures placed on the membranes of the abdominal wall, the loosened abdominal muscles are tightened and regained their former hardness. The incisions at the end of the surgery are sutured with aesthetic sutures to prevent the formation of unsightly scars. After the operation, abdominal sagging, looseness and cracked skin problems, especially caused by pregnancy or excessive weight gain, are eliminated. However, in the event of a re-pregnancy and delivery after the surgery, some of these problems may reoccur.
