I was very satisfied with the service that I received. I was apprehensive at first because we hear a lot of horror stories  about people who go abroad for surgery but actually GMC provided me with lots of advice and information and reassurance and we’re always on hand to answer my questions . I could always speak to someone via whatsapp or email with any questions and they always responded quickly. I had a breast reduction and liposuction which was a huge amount of surgery . Four days later and I am feeling pleased with the results so far.

FLAT STOMACH - ABDOMINOPLASTY FAQ

Shaped_Belly

Can I combine a tummy tuck procedure with breast surgery?

Some of our patients choose to have breast surgery together with tummy tuck procedure. Patients with children prefer to have both operations together. Having a child may have some negative effects on abdominal area as well as breasts. So the patient has a chance to have both procedures done in one sitting at favorable rates.

Can stretch marks caused by the pregnancy be removed with a (abdominoplasty) tummy tuck?

As a consequence of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure, all the stretch marks caused by pregnancy are removed from your lower abdomen area. The upper stretch marks can also be moved to downward and can be treated as well later on.

Do I need any special aftercare?

You should carry on your activities slowly. The feeling of exhaustion is normal for the first few days but you can return your routine activities within one week. You also need to follow the prescription that the surgeon set for you.

How long must I wear a compression garment?

A comfortable compression garment should be worn for six weeks.

Is it okay to have liposuction and abdominoplasty  (the tummy tuck) procedure at the same time?

Yes it is! Most patients prefer to have the tummy tuck and liposuction procedures at the same time. It is also easier for the surgeon to have two separate procedures in one sitting while you are already in the operating theatre. This also decreases the possibility of having an additional liposuction surgery after abdominoplasty.

Is it possible to perform abdominoplasty on a male patient?

There are many male patients who go ahead with abdominoplasty procedure. Most of the male patients prefer the operation in order to lose excess fat over the abdomen area.

What are the benefits of (abdominoplasty) tummy tuck?

The main aim of tummy tuck is to remove the fat and sagging skin on the abdomen zone in order to have a flat and firm stomach. Birth scars and other excess fat will be gone and you are going to gain a stronger body proportion.

What are the different incision techniques for abdominoplasty?

There are different incision techniques in tummy tuck procedures. Straight and horizontal incision lines and V shape incision lines can be considered as traditional incision techniques for tummy tuck procedures. Most of our surgeons prefer the incision on your bikini line. Thus, you do not need to cover your whole tummy tuck incision with your clothing. The scar will be covered by your underwear.

What I need to do after my operation?

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored for your situation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients for (abdominoplasty) tummy tuck surgery is as follows:

  • You can expect significant pain for the first 24 hours. Take your pain medication before pain becomes unbearable
  • You will be prescribed a narcotic pain medication as well as antibiotics by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan that is arranged for you by your doctor
  • You should drink plenty of fluids for the first couple of weeks after tummy tuck surgery, as this will help you to remain well hydrated and reduce swelling
  • Swelling and bruising are normal. The expectation is to see the final result between 3-6 months
  • After tummy tuck surgery, it is common that you will have a drain at the surgical site. Drains help to remove excess fluid from the abdomen
  • You may change the absorbent gauze pads that are placed on the surgical area. They help you to keep the incision clean and dry
  • A surgical garment will be applied immediately after your surgery. This is to be worn continuously for the first week. After one week of continuous usage, you may remove the garment before the shower. After showering, the garment must be placed back on and must be worn for up to six weeks
  • You should limit your activities for the first 24 hours after surgery
  • You should walk short distances during the first 24 hours post op. You are not going to be able to stand straight up after your procedure, which is totally normal.
  • You should take frequent deep breaths for the first 24 hours after the surgery
  • You should not get into any activities that may be painful and make you feel uncomfortable
  • You should keep your hips flexed while you are lying in bed for the first week, and try not to stretch the surgical area
  • You should not drive for about 10-14 days while you are on pain medication
  • You can stand more upright gradually by the end of the second week
  • You should pump legs while lying down to prevent blood clots. Do these activities slowly. You may feel tired for the first few days. Avoid heavy lighting, bending and straining for 4-6 weeks.
  • You may resume all of your activities after six weeks
What I need to do before my operation?

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon what to do and what not to do before the operation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. Please do not act before you get your customized list. Here is a general guidance that our surgeons share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and health history
  • Laboratory, EKG and tomography (if they are required) tests must be done just before your surgery. Tummy tuck surgery has to be cancelled if there is slight chance of future pregnancy.
  • You should avoid taking any products containing aspirin, ibuprofen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication and Vitamin E supplement two weeks before the surgery.
  • You should avoid any contact with all of the nicotine products, including cigarettes, pipe tobacco, chew or nicotine patch two weeks before surgery
  • You should avoid alcohol consumption one week prior to your procedure
  • You should not eat anything or take any fluids after 9 pm the night before the operation. Any food, water, coffee, juice or liquids are not allowed to take in the morning of the operation. The only exception is medication that you should take with a small amount of water before the procedure
  • You can brush your teeth.
  • You may take shower by using shampoo on the morning of your surgery
  • You are not advised to wear any make-up and hair sprays/conditioners. Please remove your nail polish. Acrylic nails may stay on
  • You should choose loose fitting clothes
  • You should not wear any jewelry, including all body piercings
  • If you have your menstrual cycle, please wear a sanitary pad instead of a tampon
What if I become pregnant after my (abdominoplasty) tummy tuck procedure?

If you become pregnant after the procedure, the effects of the operation become useless. Since this procedure is related to the abdominal muscles and fat areas, you may consider the result unsatisfactory after you give birth to your child. The muscles that you decide to reshape loosen after you give birth to your child.

What is the difference between normal tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure and mini tummy tuck?

In mini tummy tuck, minimum amount of abdominal area is affected by skin removal or muscle tightening below the belly button. However, in traditional tummy tuck procedure, the amount of fat and skin removal process spreads on a wider zone including lower abdominal area.

  • Then your procedure will start and will lasts for two to five hours.
  • Within an hour after the procedure, anesthesia will ease and you will regain consciousness.
