Tummy Tuck in Turkey
A tummy tuck is ideal for people who have a large amount of fat and loose skin around the stomach area that simply will not go away no matter how much they diet and exercise. Loose or saggy skin can be caused by any number of factors from pregnancy and heredity to aging and significant fluctuations in weight. While a tummy tuck is not a weight loss technique it is a procedure that corrects loose sagging skin and excess fat and can provide the flat stomach you have always wanted.
Though there are many types up of tummy tuck procedures the two most common are the full tummy tuck and the mini tummy tuck.
The full tummy tuck is the more extensive of two procedures and is typically performed under a general anesthetic. The plastic surgeon removes loose skin, fat deposits and stretch marks from the abdominal region. Vertical abdominal muscles that have been stretched and weakened over time are tightened and that restores the appearance of a firmer flatter stomach.
A mini tummy tuck is typically performed under general anesthetic and can achieve the same results but focuses only on the area below the belly bottom.
What are the primary differences between a full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck is the length of time the procedure takes. A full tummy tuck, it takes anywhere from two to five hours. While the mini tummy tuck is often done in just an hour or two.
As for the tummy tuck procedure itself, the skin and fat layers that lie above the abdominal wall are separated from the wall. The tissue is then lifted upward toward the rib cage. A plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdomen by suturing the abdominal muscles and pulling them closer together that will create a flatter, firmer abdominal wall and a slimmer waistline.
In order to prevent fluid buildup as you heal, drainage tubes will likely to be placed in the abdomen and will stay there for couple of days. Most patients end up wearing a compression garment for up to several weeks to help reduce swelling by preventing fluid buildup and provide some comfort while they heal.
Most are able to return to work after one to three weeks but it may take six to eight weeks before the patient feels able to return to full normal activity including heavy lifting and strenuous exercise.
