Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure in the middle and lower abdomen where the excess skin fat and flaccid skin tissue is taken and the abdominal muscles are tightened. This is not an obesity treatment.

During the operation, the abdominal skin is liberated from the muscles beneath the rib bones from the groin.
If there is a weakness or hernia in the abdominal muscles, it is reinforced here, the excess skin is cut and removed from the body. Then closed with aesthetic suture.
What is done after the surgery?
It is necessary to stay in the hospital for 1-3 days on average. It can take a few months to feel like as before. You can return to work in 2-4 weeks.

What are the risks of abdominal stretch surgery?
Every year hundreds of abdominoplasty operations are performed. The result is generally satisfactory if this surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon who is also specialized in body contour correction. Every surgical procedure has a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand what is associated with abdominoplasty. It is essential to compare the risks and benefits of surgery when the person accepts the surgical procedure. Even if many women or men do not experience the following complications, discuss with your plastic surgeon until you are sure that you understand the risks, possible complications and consequences. Good preoperative examination and evaluation are rarely complications such as infection and hemorrhage of this operation performed by a plastic surgeon in appropriate hospital conditions. The infection is treated with antibiotics and evacuation of the abscess if abscess is present, but it may prolong the hospitalization period. Delay in wound healing or poor wound healing may occur and may result in scarring. Under these conditions, a second operation may be required. Complications occur more frequently in skin loss and wound healing in smokers.
