What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to reduce abdominal fat. The result is a slimmer and firmer abdomen.

How is a Tummy Tuck procedure done?

To perform a tummy tuck procedure, first general anaesthesia is administered. For patients with large tummies, the surgeon will cut the abdomen horizontally between the hip bones and contour the abdominal muscles, skin and tissues. The surgeon will place drainage tubes under the skin if required. Patients with fat deposits only below their navel will need a shorter and less complex procedure where the surgeon will make a smaller incision and perform key-hole surgery, inserting a small camera to see what needs to be done.

What are the alternatives to a Tummy Tuck?

Alternatives to a tummy tuck procedure are liposuction procedures, diet and exercise, and radiofrequency or laser assisted procedures to reduce abdominal fat.

What is the recovery time after a Tummy Tuck?

Patients recover from a mini or partial tummy tuck procedure within a month but full recovery after a full tummy tuck procedure will take about 6 months.

Tummy Tuck vs Mini Tummy Tuck

The full tummy tuck procedure is employed when patients require the contouring of the entire abdominal region. The procedure takes about four to five hours to complete. It takes about six months to completely recover from a tummy tuck procedure. A mini tummy tuck procedure is for patients who have excessive localized fat in their lower abdomen. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes about one hour. Patients recover from a mini tummy tuck procedure within a month.

How long does swelling last after Tummy Tuck?

Swelling after a tummy tuck procedure may last for about six months.

Istanbul, Turkey
Rating from 87 Reviews The hospital staff were very supportive, skillful and professionalMargaret, Turkey, 16 Sep 17

I was searching for the best clinic for my procedure. I went on Whatclinic and found a number of clinics and plastic surgeons that I have to choose from. I went through them carefully and came across MCAN and a surgeon called Dr. Altughan Cahil Vural. I requested for quotes from various clinics but MCAN was the first to reply with detailed information. I was glad because from what I have learned from the site I did prefer Dr. Vural to do my surgery. I met with Dr. Vural during his visit to London for a free constitution. He was very honest and suggested the best procedure which was more suitable and realistic than what I previously wanted done. He was very nice and professional throughout our conversation and we agreed and planned on the best procedure for me. The customer service person Ecem was very helpful and gave me directions on how to prepare and sent me all the information regarding my stay and care. A month later I traveled to Istanbul to have my surgery. I had a second assessment by Dr. Vural before the surgery. I had a breast uplift and augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck. It went well and I am back home recovering well. Dr. Vural has exceeded my expectations by far, thank you very much Dr. Vural. The hospital staff were very supportive, skillful and professional. Beigen and the hotel staff were fantastic. I can never ask for anything better. At the moment I have access to MCAN 24/7 helpline for advice and help but am doing well and taking my medication as instructed so no problems. The hotel is situated in the town centre with lots of shops and restaurants, I was spoiled for choice.

Rating from 28 Reviews They didn’t make me feel rushed at all and the quote they gave me was incredibly goodAnn, UK, 18 Dec 18

I am writing this review as it was actually reading someone else’s review on what clinic, which prompted me to inquire about a tummy tuck procedure with Newest Cosmetics. I had initially booked my surgery with another well publicised Turkish Cosmetics Surgery provider but changed my mind after a woman died whilst in their care. I contacted the Newest and within an hour they answered my query. They were able to look at my images and give me a quote within 24 hours. I was super impressed with the speed, efficiency, honesty and time they took diligently answering all my questions. They didn’t make me feel rushed at all and the quote they gave me was incredibly good value for money. I booked the Tummy Tuck surgery with Dr Hasan Findik and had the surgery 10th December 2018. Okay, so pros and cons: Pros: the customer service was, and is great. All their staff are so lovely, caring and attentive. A special big shout out to Fathi who was my patient coordinator and translator for the duration of my stay. The language barrier isn’t easy. Most people don’t speak a great deal of English but there was always someone on hand able to translate so it was never really an issue. They were really good at communicating with me over the course of my stay and organised everything meticulously. I even went to the hairdressers and Fathi called ahead on my behalf and spoke to them so that they could understand what I wanted! The quote that they gave me included the surgery, the garments, medicines, 3 x check-ups post surgery, really friendly chauffeurs to pick you up from the airport, drop you back to the airport, take you to and from the hospital for your check-ups and hotel for 7 nights including breakfast. Honestly so good and I was really happy with the value for money. The hospital is modern, clean and comfortable. Dr Hasan Findik is excellent at what he does. I’m only a week out of surgery and I really am happy with my results. My scar is super fine and neat. I might go back for more lipo around my waist in 6 months as I want it to be extra small, but so far it’s still early days and Dr Findik thinks I might be happy without it once all the swelling has gone down. The flight to Istanbul was relatively quick and the flights are also cheap! We stayed in the Mercure Altunazade which was perfectly comfortable. The staff were friendly, it was clean and warm. Lovely. The breakfast at the hotel was pretty basic. I would highly recommend bringing snacks with you for the whole stay in fact. Turkish food might not be to everyone’s taste. Even though I was post surgery and in some pain, having a week off with nothing to do is BLISS when you have a full-time job and 2 kids at home. One thing I would say is to bring a laptop or an iPad with loads of films and TV series downloaded beforehand. There are licensing restrictions in Turkey on UK streaming services so it won’t let you view or download things on amazon prime, for example, unless they are pre-downloaded. The hotel only had 3 English news channels but fortunately, I had my laptop and pre-downloaded content. My other half stayed at home to look after the kids and my mum was able to come with me as my chaperone for only a small fee on top of the quote. Totally worth it. I would definitely recommend bringing someone to help and keep you company after the surgery. The cons: after your surgery, I did not find the hospital to be liberal with their pain relief. The medicine they did give me barely made a difference and they would only administer more every 8 hours. 8 HOURS!!! I had a similar serious surgery back in the UK and I was very happily topped up during the first 2 days, every 3 hours post surgery using different medicines so that it was still safe, but kept my pain at bay. I assume it must be their medical laws or because they are a Muslim country they don’t tend to use opiate based medicine but, I really missed it. The first 24 hours are the worst but after that, it gets loads better. I might be a total wimp and others might not feel the same way as I did, but I wanted to leave an honest review so people knew what to expect. If you can grin and bear it, then the saving you make having the surgery in Turkey is still 100% worth it so don’t let this put you off. Bring sleeping pills too as they don’t give you these either. Would I go back to Newest again? Yes. Would I recommend them to a friend or family? Definitely! They are good, kind people who really care that you are given the best experience and Dr Hasan Findik really is an artist. I can’t see anyone regretting their decision going there. If they can just get their pain management strategy under control, then it would be practically perfect!

The Harley Medical Group - Brighton - Plastic Surgery Clinic in the UKFeatured
Rating from 3 Reviews I’m very happy with the results and I absolutely loved my surgeonAmber, UK, 16 Apr 18

I chose Harley Medical because I’d considered them five years ago, so I was familiar with the clinic. They’re also one of the closest surgeries to me, and I preferred to have my breast implants done locally. I’m very happy with the results and I absolutely loved my surgeon - she was brilliant! I paid 4550 for the implants. I expected a much higher price; it was great value for money. I thought the clinic was perfectly lovely. It was everything I expected it to be - calm, welcoming and well-staffed. The surgeon was really attentive and I felt like she knew everything about me. My nurse was also brilliant. Taking your clothes off in front of someone can be an awkward experience, but she was very understanding. I felt very comfortable here. The only thing I can fault them on is the scheduling of the operation. I was meant to go in at 10 a.m, but I was only taken into theatre at 2 pm in the afternoon. Everything else was great.

Dr Ayyildiz is a female surgeon in Istanbul. There are not many female surgeons in Turkey and I wanted to support her role in what is considered a man’s world. I was not disappointed. She is completely competent. She is also very kind. So far, I am three weeks out from a full abdominoplasty and I am very happy with the results. I highly recommend this doctor.

Budapest Plastic Surgery Institute

(202) 875-7601 Budapest, Hungary
Rating from 1 Review I can't recommend the clinic enough!Maeve, Ireland, 07 Nov 16

I travelled from Ireland for a breast lift and implants. The whole experience prior to going was perfect, a girl called Melinda dealt with me the entire time, any questions I had were answered, everything I needed to do beforehand was explained. I flew over on the Tuesday, had my pre op tests Wednesday morning, had the surgery in the afternoon and was out Thursday morning and walking round sight seeing! Everyone in the clinic was lovely, obviously there was a language barrier with a few members of staff but for the most part I was tended to by English speaking staff, so it really wasn't an issue. The doctor was lovely, the nurses were lovely, the anaesthesiologist was lovely, everything was explained to me step by step. This clinic uses the exact same implants as certain clinics in Ireland which I was really assured by, the Mentor implants, I got my lifetime guarantee with them. The stitches are self absorbing as well so I don't have to deal with getting them taken out when I return home.. I have my post op check up tomorrow (6 days later) and I'm free to return home. When I researched clinics around Europe some places wanted me to stay for 2 weeks which just wasn't realistic for me. I got 350 cc high profile round implants and that decision was based on what I wanted and the surgeons recommendations from pictures of myself and what I was hoping to look like that I sent prior to going, I didn't get a chance to compare sizes or see the implants beforehand which didn't really bother me but it might have bothered some people.. I didn't want to go too big and the surgeon recommended a C but when i asked about going to a D cup he advised against it due to my frame being quite narrow they'd just stick out the sides so I trusted his judgement on it and went with his recommendation. The best part is that even when I factored in flights, accommodation and the price of the surgery, it was still only half the price of what I'd been quoted in Ireland! Well worth it in my opinion. At this moment in time I still have a lot of swelling and it will take a while for my implants to settle, but up to this point I couldn't be happier with how my surgery went and how I was treated before and after. I can't recommend the clinic enough! Plus Budapest is such an amazing city! The clinic itself is beautiful! No joke I was actually gobsmacked. I tend not to believe places when they say online that they're '5 star this' and 'best in the country that' cause it's usually always waffle so I didn't really have any expectations of the clinic itself but oh my god, wow. There is marble and velvet and chandeliers everywhere, the place is immaculate, it is literally a stunning, 5 star, beautifully decorated, private clinic in the centre of Budapest with the most amazing views over the Danube (from the right window obvs). I had my own room with ensuite bathroom - which was all black marble, just saying - there was a mini bar, loccitane gift set, bathrobe, wifi, everything you need and the staff are really attentive as well, I didn't once feel like I was alone in a foreign country getting a boob job it just felt like a really professional experience and the way everything was conducted was really assuring. Sorry if this seems like an incredible amount of waffle but I found very little in the way of in depth reviews when I was researching travelling for my op so I hope this can help someone or put them at ease if they're considering going abroad like I did. To be honest I wouldn't have done it any other way.

Tummy Tuck $2076 - $2661
After childbearing or significant weight fluctuations a local weight excess can evolve on the abdominal area, resulting in loose and sagging abdominal skin which can mean a problem in certain situations. For example, you may feel uncomfortable while pursuing sport, it makes more difficult to choose proper clothing, and also causes self-evaluation problems. Abdominoplasty provides the ability to remove sagging skin and superfluous adipose tissue; the look of the abdomen can be made tighter. At the first consultation, our plastic surgeon examines you, then together you discuss the personalized possibilities, then he explains the different surgical techniques and shows you where your scars will be located after the operation. As the incisions are located in the bikini line, you can bravely wear all the trendy types of bathing suits.
Liposuction $1632 - $2377
Liposuction is a surgical procedure used for the removal of deposited fat-pads. These undesirable fat cells are most frequently multiplied in the area of the abdomen, the thighs and the waist. Although in most cases liposuction is performed on these areas, the correction of the double chin, the knees or the upper arms is not rare either. The first consultation with the plastic surgeon is of particularly great importance. It is practical to prepare in advance for this consultation, we kindly ask you to think through your questions and expectations concerning the liposuction. During the first consultation our plastic surgeon examines you and makes a recommendation regarding the type of the necessary procedure(s). It is possible that in your case liposuction has to be supplemented with another correction – your surgeon informs you about this, as well. Of course, he explains the process of the surgery in detail and answers all your further questions concerning the liposuction.

My daughter and I had surgery on the 8th and 12th of may. My daughter lives in London, I am Irish a retired nurse living in Alanya. She had a tummy tuck, I had lipo and fat transfer. Even though I am 71 years young, it never too late to change something your not happy with. Its early days yet but every day there an improvement. I wouldn’t like to give the impression that these procedures are a walk in the park and not to be taken lightly. Your are black, blue sore and wearing a compression garment for 3 to 4 weeks. As I get better I will keep updating. The doctor's staff and our driver made the whole process as easy as possible. If you have surgery in turkey don’t expect the hospital staff to be the same as your country the training is different. The cleanliness is spot on, no infection here. Expect the language difficulty and the different food.
