Preparation process for Tummy Tuck Surgery


Having your first visit to our clinic or for international patients with online consultation for tummy tuck surgery, one of the experts in our clinic will;

  • analyze your medical records – It is essential for the surgeon to know about your previous illnesses and treatments and smoking habits
  • examine your abdomen – this is to decide the best option for the surgery
  • ask about your expectations – the surgeon needs to understand why you want a tummy tuck and how you want your abdomen to look. Our surgeon will also explain the procedure in detail.

Before the Operation

Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.

We will do lab testing or a medical evaluation.

You must be a nonsmoker to have this operation.

During the Operation

The operation usually takes between two to three hours. During tummy tuck surgery, the surgeon makes incisions in order to remove excessive fat and skin. Then the skin tightened and create a new hole for the navel. Connective abdominal tissues get tightened with sutures.

After the Operation

After the tummy tuck surgery, you have to stay in the hospital for two days. There will be some pain but it could be reduced using pain killers that our expert prescribes. The surgeon may also prescribe antibiotics or blood-thinning medication after the surgery. Wearing a supportive abdominal garment for the first three weeks after the operation is also a must. After having the tummy tuck surgery, be careful during physical activities and even in daily routines for one month. There will be a tiny scar that remains below your underwear level.
