      Abdominoplasty or abdominal stretching surgery is a surgical procedure in which the excess fat in the middle and lower abdomen and the sagging skin are removed and the relaxed muscles in the abdominal wall are stretched and strengthened. With this surgery, the abdomen is loose, fatty tissue is increased and the swollen appearance is removed, it is regained its flat and thin appearance, and the waist is also thinned. Similarly, the condition called diastasis that occurs when the abdominal wall muscles are separated from the midline can be repaired with this surgery.

      There are many techniques used by plastic surgeons for abdominal stretching surgery, and this surgery can be done in conjunction with correction surgeries for other body lines.

      Who are the most suitable candidates for surgery?

      The most suitable candidates for abdominal stretching surgery are healthy people, in which excess tissues in the abdominal wall cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. Although this intervention is mostly performed in female patients, it is an intervention frequently applied by both female and male patients. One of the main reasons for its more frequent application in women is that the muscles and skin in the abdominal wall become stretched and lose flexibility during pregnancy. The accumulation of excess fat is another common cause for both men and women.


      The operation may take 2–5 hours depending on the procedure. Often an incision line is made, which can be hidden under the underwear and is 8–10 cm below the navel and above the hairy area. A second incision is made around the navel according to the surgeon’s preference. After the operation is finished, the incision line is closed under the skin with hidden stitches and covered with dressings. One or two tubes called drains can be placed to remove excess fluid to collect in the area.

      What is the recovery period after abdominal stretching?

      After this surgery, patients can stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. He starts walking the day after the surgery. Bandages can take a bath as soon as they are removed. If corset was used instead of bandage, it is okay to take a bath the next day. You can go out from home after 3-4 days. Return to work is usually possible within 2 weeks. Abdominal exercise is not recommended to the patient in the first 6 weeks after the operation. Because this can increase intra-abdominal pressure. The patient is asked to walk especially. The surgical scar disappears within 3-6 weeks and becomes very apparent within 6-9 months.
