Tummy tuck in Turkey is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tighten the adnominal muscles. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, full tummy tuck, mini tummy can be performed to achieve the aesthetic goal of a flatter and slimmer waistline.
Tummy tuck in Istanbul can provide men and women a chance to restore a slim and a lean midsection. Major life events—such as weight loss and pregnancy—aging and genetics can take a toll on the appearance of the body. In some people, body changes like sagging skin, lax abdominal muscles—and even small pockets of fat—cannot respond to diet and exercise.
If diet and a healthy lifestyle have not achieved your desired figure, then abdominoplasty in Turkey can address these concerns. While a tummy tuck is a common cosmetic surgery in Istanbul, your procedure must be specifically tailored-made for you—that’s why your choice of a plastic surgeon is essential, especially when traveling for a tummy tuck abroad.

It should be duly noted that tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery. Patients should be at their ideal weight before undergoing the abdominoplasty in Istanbul.
Good candidates for a tummy tuck in Turkey
Good candidates for a tummy tuck in Turkey are patients in good health and ideal weight. Tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery. It’s best suited for patients who have already lost significant weight—and are left with excess skin and fat in the tummy area. Women who have excess skin after pregnancy can also benefit from tummy tuck surgery; however, they are advised to not undergo the surgery until they are sure they will not get pregnant again.
Who can benefit from a tummy tuck surgery in Istanbul:
- Women with excess skin and fat in the lower abdomen due to pregnancy or weight loss
- Women who wish to remove the lower abdominal scars from previous procedures
- Individuals who are in stable body weight
- Persons with realistic expectations
Tummy tuck procedure Turkey
What happens in an abdominoplasty surgery in Istanbul?
Body sculpting of the abdomen is carried out with general anesthesia. A horizontal incision is placed just above the pubic area that may extend from one hip to the other. The length of the incision is made depending on the amount of skin to be removed. The plastic surgeon may make a second incision to remove loose skin around the navel region. Extensive liposuction can be used through the incision to remove a large amount of excess fat. The remaining skin is then pulled and the belly button is repositioned to align with the new contour of the abdomen.
The underlying muscles are pulled tight and sutured before the residual skin is pulled downward. Liposuction of the flanks is usually performed in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery in Turkey to improve the result further.
Types of tummy tuck surgery
Mini Tummy Tuck Turkey
A mini tummy tuck—or partial abdominoplasty—is an excellent body sculpting surgery option for patients who only need minor contouring before the belly button. The result is a flatter, soother stomach—with half the downtime of a traditional tummy tuck. Mini tummy tuck is ideal for patients who wish to treat a smaller amount of abdominal fat and skin. Mini tummy tuck in Istanbul is best suited for busy moms who want a faster, and more affordable plastic surgery procedure to lose sagging abdominal skin after pregnancy. Mini tummy tuck recovery is very short compared to full or extended tummy tuck surgery.
Full/Extended Tummy Tuck
A full abdominoplasty surgery in Turkey involves more skin and fat removal than a traditional tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. The procedure aims to tighten the lax muscles—both above and below the umbilicus. Extended tummy tuck in Istanbul involves a somewhat longer lower abdominal scar—as well as a scar around the navel—but will typically confer greater body sculpting benefits than a traditional tummy tuck.
Extended or full Tummy Tuck
Simply put, during a mini tummy tuck surgery in Turkey, the excess loose skin below the belly button will be surgically removed. Underlying muscles can be tightened as well. Recovery from a mini tummy tuck in Istanbul is typically quicker than from a full abdominoplasty, as it usually involves less surgery.
In a full abdominoplasty, loose skin in both the middle and lower abdominal regions can be treated with a panniculectomy. After the excess skin is removed, abdominal muscles are tightened—and the remaining skin is re-draped. Full tummy tuck surgery in Istanbul is commonly combined with liposuction for more refined results.
Tummy tuck for men
Tummy tucks are not just designed for women. Men, too, can benefit from tummy tuck surgery to remove excess fat and skin from their midsections and tighten loose abdominal muscles.
The male tummy tuck surgery is one of many plastic surgery treatments custom-made for men to give them a toned, masculine abdominal area by surgically tightening the weaker muscles and removing excess fat and loose skin. There are three types of tummy tucks for men — full, mini, and extended. The full and mini tummy tucks address problems in the frontal area of the abdomen. An extended tummy tuck includes the “love handles.”
Pregnancy after tummy tuck
Many women are aware of the long-term effects of pregnancy on their bodies--particularly on their abdomen. Following the birth of one or more children, many women choose to undergo an abdominoplasty to enhance the tone and tightness of their midsections at the end of their childbearing years. It’s also worth mentioning that pregnancy after a tummy tuck surgery is possible and considered safe for both the mother and the baby.
Tummy tuck after weigh loss
When the skin has been stretched because of the heavy weight, it loses its natural elasticity and may not tighten around the new body shape. Abdominoplasty is a commonly performed body contouring surgery after weight loss. Patients who are left with the unsightly abdominal area—due to the excess sagging skin, tissue and fat—can benefit from a tummy tuck surgery in Istanbul.
Tummy tuck recovery and aftercare
Patients need to rest for 2 weeks—to recuperate and recover—and avoid strenuous activities. After 2 weeks most tummy tuck patients can return to work (desk or administrative job). You must refrain from heavy lifting and vigorous activities. Patients can return to their normal lives 3 months after their tummy tuck surgery in Turkey. The treated area will be covered with a corset tummy tuck to assist in the healing process.
