What Our Patients Say

EXCELLENT star star

Based on 184 reviews on Trustpilot
Adrian Ciurezeanu, Romania

The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Recommended For Tummy Tuck

Individuals that suffered from severe obesity, significant fluctuations in weight or weight gain in the abdomen area can benefit from an abdominoplasty. After significant weight loss, many individuals are left with excess skin and fatty tissue in the abdominal area – which makes them ideal candidates for an abdominoplasty.

Not Recommended For Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty should only be taken into consideration by patients that have already reached a stable weight but are looking to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdominal area. Pregnant women or women planning to have children should postpone the surgery for a while. Tummy tuck scars should also be taken into consideration before choosing to undergo this procedure.

Discharge From Hospital

Patient may spend one night in hospital

Duration Of Operation

Between 2 to 3 hours

Overview

A tummy tuck procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery technique used to firm up and tighten the abdomen region. Tummy tuck surgery has gained a lot of popularity in recent years as it’s one of the simplest and safest ways to remove excess fat and skin from the lower and middle abdomen. Apart from the surgical option, one tummy tuck alternative would be the tummy tuck belt but the results of this non-surgical option are questionable. If the patient has excess or loose skin and no amount of exercise or diet can remove it, the only option is an abdominoplasty and in some cases, a mini tummy tuck.

Preparation

Once reaching a stable weight, an abdominoplasty becomes an option. The patient should stop the intake of any vitamins, herbal teas and aspirin at least 10 days before surgery. The patient should also quit smoking at least 14 days before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

The patient is first put under general anaesthesia and the surgeon proceeds to outline the incision, which usually runs from one hip to the other. Next, the doctor will separate the loose skin from the abdominal wall and tighten the abdominal muscles through stitches. This will create a narrower waistline and a firmer abdomen. Once the extra skin is removed, the incision is stitched up and bandages are applied on the area to prevent infection.

Recovery

Tummy tuck results are noticeable in 2-3 weeks after surgery, when the swelling subsides. The tummy tuck recovery period lasts between 2 and 4 weeks with patients usually being able to return to work in 1-2 weeks. The patient will be provided with a special compression garment that needs to be worn as instructed by the doctor. This garment will speed up recovery and also reduce scarring in the surgery region.

Risks

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery carries some risks and the possibility of complications, just like any other plastic surgery procedures. The average tummy tuck complications rate is around 4% and can include: 
● Bleeding 
● Scarring which can lead to tummy tuck scar revision 
● Complications from anaesthesia 
● Nerve damage in the surgery area 
● Suture ruptures 
● Infection 

Side Effects

Patients may feel nausea from anaesthesia, numbness in the surgery area, swelling, bruising and pain which can be soothed with painkillers.

Success Rates

A survey based on tummy tuck reviews set the patient satisfaction rate at 86%, with 86% of patients recommending this procedure to family or friends.

Before And After

Before and after tummy tuck pictures may look appealing but the doctor’s guidelines are crucial to a successful abdominoplasty procedure. The patient can lose a considerable amount of fat and excess skin but these results need to be maintained through a strict diet and exercise plan.

Faq

Is tummy tuck worth it? 
Yes, 86% of abdominoplasty patients seem to believe so. It’s worth noting that severely overweight patients tend to suffer more from complications after an abdominoplasty, so it’s essential to reach a healthy weight before considering this procedure. 

Mini Tummy Tuck vs Tummy Tuck – What is the difference? 
The main difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full abdominoplasty is the incision length and the amount of fat and skin that can be removed. 

Tummy Tuck vs Lipo – What’s the difference? 
In an abdominoplasty surgery, excess skin and fat is removed – in lipo or liposuction, just fat is removed. Liposuction is minimally invasive and the incisions are very small.

Back To Work

1 to 2 weeks

Traditional Tummy Tuck Surgery

A traditional tummy tuck procedure, also called a “full tummy tuck” is the standard surgery for patients who want a flatter abdomen above and below the belly button area. During this procedure, the doctor will make a long horizontal incision from one hip to the other and around the umbilicus. Excess skin and tissue is then removed, with the remaining skin and underlying muscle tissue being pulled tightly over the stomach. The belly button is repositioned before the incision is closed with sutures. This procedure is recommended for patients with excess skin in the bellybutton area and weak abdominal muscles. General anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the procedure can begin. The recovery period usually lasts around 2 weeks with swelling and bruising gradually going down over a longer period of time.

Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery

Mini tummy tuck surgery is less invasive than a standard tummy tuck procedure, but the overall objectives are the same. This technique is better suited for patients with excess skin and tissue below the belly button, making it ideal for slender individuals with a so called “belly pooch” – a small bulge of skin and underlying tissue in the lower abdomen. The surgeon will create a smaller horizontal incision under the belly button before removing excess skin and tightening the stomach muscle beneath. The incision is then closed with sutures. Repositioning of the belly button itself is not necessary, due to the smaller incision made with this technique. Since a mini tummy tuck is less invasive than standard tummy tuck surgery, it can be done under twilight anaesthesia and the recovery period is shorter, at around a week.

Extended Tummy Tuck

An extended tummy tuck, also known as a circumferential lower body lift is a more invasive type of procedure used to address issues of the abdomen, lower back and hips region. This surgery is recommended for individuals who lost a lot of weight and are in good health – this procedure can completely reshape the look of the patient’s body. A long horizontal incision is required to perform this procedure – the incision stretches across the lower belly and the lower back. A vertical incision is made from the lower belly to the bellybutton as well. These incisions will allow the doctor to remove any surplus skin tissue and fatty tissue while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Liposuction can be also applied to further reshape the body’s contour for a more aesthetically pleasing result. The belly button is repositioned and all incisions are closed with sutures. Being more invasive than other techniques, extended tummy tuck surgery requires general anaesthesia in order to be performed and a recovery period of at least four weeks.

Which technique is better?

Abdominoplasty techniques differ from patient to patient according to several different factors including the patient’s weight, amount of excess skin and fatty tissue and their expectations from the procedure. Scarring from previous procedures can also play a role in determining which technique will be used.
