Recommendations and Things to Know Before and After Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery is a popular aesthetic procedure for many people who want to remove excess fat and skin tissue in the abdominal area and restore a firmer abdominal profile. However, there are some important factors to be considered before and after this type of surgery. Under the guidance of Dr Emre Özenalp, we will offer some important advice to those who will undergo tummy tuck surgery.

1. Choosing the Right Surgeon

Tummy tuck surgery is a procedure that requires the experience and expertise of a surgeon. Before considering surgery, it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon. Reviewing your surgeon’s past work and references can help you make the right choice.

2. Keep Your Expectations Realistic

It is very important to set your expectations realistically before and after surgery. The results of the surgical procedure can vary from person to person and having expectations that the surgery will transform you into a perfect body can lead to disappointment. Communicate openly and honestly with your surgeon about the results of the surgery.

3. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Abdominoplasty should support a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining healthy eating habits, limiting smoking and alcohol consumption before and after surgery can accelerate postoperative recovery and improve results.

4. Do Not Neglect Postoperative Care

It is very important to follow your surgeon’s recommendations carefully in the postoperative period. It is vital to follow the instructions to speed up the healing process and prevent complications. Instructions such as suture care, wound care and physical activity limitations should not be ignored.

5. Do Not Neglect Regular Check-ups

It is important to be in regular contact with your surgeon after surgery and not to neglect the controls. Your surgeon will follow your healing process and will be able to intervene early if any problems arise.

6. Be Patient

The results of tummy tuck surgery usually become more noticeable over time. Postoperative swelling and bruising are normal and may take several weeks to disappear. Be patient to evaluate the results.

One of the most important recommendations that can be given to those who will undergo tummy tuck surgery is to prepare well for this procedure. Choosing the right surgeon, setting realistic expectations, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not neglecting postoperative care and being patient are some of the keys to a successful tummy tuck surgery. By working with an experienced surgeon such as Dr Emre Özenalp, you can achieve the best results after surgery.
