Tummy Tuck in Turkey with ClinicAdvisor®

Tummy Tuck in Turkey, also known as Abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to tighten the abdominal area. In a tummy tuck, a surgeon removes excess skin and fat in addition to tightening the abdominal muscles.

This is very common among women and men who wish to have a flat stomach and reshape their bodies.

It should be noted that this procedure is different from liposuction in Turkey. However, the surgeon can perform both procedures simultaneously to achieve impressive results and a radical change.

Undergoing a tummy tuck is an important decision, which significantly changes your appearance. So take your time choosing an experienced surgeon to get the best results and avoid medical errors.

With Clinic Advisor®, you will get amazing results at an affordable price. In addition, we have a group of highly qualified specialists in the field of plastic surgery.

Types of a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Turkey

There are several types of tummy tuck in Turkey. Your surgeon will choose the best type based on the area to be treated and your desired results.

The three main types of tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are:

Full tummy tuck

A full tummy tuck is a procedure for those who want to tighten the upper and lower abdominal area simultaneously.

It is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes one to three hours, depending on the targeted areas.

The surgeon will make a horizontal incision spanning from one hip bone to the other hip bone or in a U-shape above the pubic area. Then, they remove excess skin tissues and tighten the abdominal muscles.

Full Tummy Tuck Incision in Turkey

Sometimes the surgeon may make a second incision to remove excess skin from the area above the belly button to get the best results. And then he/she will reposition the navel and stitches the incision. 

This procedure is ideal for people with excess skin folds above and below the navel.

Mini tummy tuck

A mini tummy tuck is an operation that aims to tighten the lower part of the abdomen below the navel. The scar resulting from this method is thinner and shorter than the incision made in the full tummy tuck method.

This method is less invasive and ideal for people with sagging skin between the navel and pubis.

During a mini abdominoplasty, the surgeon makes a small horizontal incision below the navel to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles and then closes the incision.

The mini tummy tuck is usually performed under general anesthesia and lasts 1 to 2 hours.

360 tummy tuck

This procedure is more invasive than a full tummy tuck. It aims to treat the upper and lower abdomen, lower back, and hips.

This method is used for people who suffer from severe sagging. Especially those who gained and lost weight very quickly during a short time, for example after gastric sleeve surgery.

The surgeon makes two incisions, a horizontal incision in the lower abdomen and a vertical incision through the navel. 

Excess skin and fat are removed and stomach muscles are tightened through these incisions. Next, the navel is put back in place and the incisions are closed.

Although this type causes longer incisions, it removes loose skin and excess fat and tightens muscles. It is suitable for people who want to reshape their body contour.

The 360 degree abdominoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes two to four hours

After the procedure is completed, the surgeon will cover the incisions with gauze.

Preparation before a Tummy Tuck in Turkey

Before a tummy tuck in Turkey, you will meet with your surgeon to discuss the important points related to the procedure. During the consultation, the surgeon will:

  • Check your medical history and any previous surgeries or medications you use.
  • The surgeon will ask you to stop using aspirin or recommend using certain medications to prevent blood clots.
  • The surgeon will perform a physical examination to determine the area that will be targeted and the appropriate procedure for your condition.
  • They will explain the expected results, side effects, and risks associated with a tummy tuck.
  • And finally, the surgeon will clarify all instructions that must be followed before and after the operation.

On the other hand, you should tell the surgeon your expectations and the desired result. Also, make sure all of your questions are answered before leaving the surgeon's office.

At the end of the consultation, your surgeon will tell you if a tummy tuck is right for you.

Recovery after a Tummy Tuck in Turkey

After the tummy tuck in Turkey, you will stay in the recovery room for a few hours under the supervision of the medical team.

You can go home the next day which means you will need to stay in the hospital overnight.

So it's best to have someone accompany you, or the hospital will suggest someone stay with you.

You will have thin drainage tubes to drain excess fluid and blood for a few days after the procedure. The medical team will explain how to empty the drainage tube at home.

It is normal to feel some swelling in the treated area, which will subside within the first month after the procedure.

You will feel pain, especially in the two days following this surgery. But, don't worry, the doctor will prescribe painkillers in addition to antibiotics.

Instructions and Recovery after a Tummy Tuck in Turkey 

Full recovery after a tummy tuck usually takes 6 to 8 weeks. During this period of time, your surgeon will give you instructions to ensure a faster recovery and avoid unknown complications. Some of these instructions include:

  • You can wash after one day keeping the operation area completely dry.
  • Wearing a compression garment on the abdomen to support the abdominal area for about a month.
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activities and work out for 30-40 days after the operation.
  • Minimize smoking as much as possible.
  • You should sleep on your back for at least 2 weeks to avoid pressure on your stomach.
  • You can return to work after a week. However, it is best to ask your surgeon when you can resume your daily routine.
  • You should abstain from sexual activity and physical activities for 3 to 4 weeks.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost in Turkey 2023?

Until the end of 2022, the prices of a tummy tuck in Turkey ranged between $2,500 and $4,000 in most Turkish hospitals. 

Currently, in 2023, the cost of a tummy tuck in Turkey ranges from $3,000 to $4,500. Where the average price is $3750

The reason for the slight increase in the prices of abdominoplasty in Turkey is the recent inflation that is happening in the Turkish economy, which began in mid-2022 and continues to this day. In addition, the depreciation of the Turkish lira against the US dollar.

In general, a tummy tuck in Turkey is very expensive compared to some other plastic surgeries. However, like any other cosmetic procedure, the cost of a tummy tuck in Turkey varies from one place to another based on different factors such as:

  • The individual needs of the patient and the method used in the surgery.
  • The hospital.
  • The city where the operation will take place.
  • The surgeon’s experience.

Keep in mind that a tummy tuck is not an easy procedure. That’s why you need to have it performed by a trustworthy surgeon who actually achieves good results and eliminates the risk of failure.
