Have you heard of the reverse abdominoplasty procedure before? Pregnancy and weight loss can cause abdominal skin to sag and excess skin to accumulate throughout the abdomen. Diet and exercise don’t make much difference to saggy skin. Stubborn adipose tissue may not go away with diet and exercise.
Surgery is required to restore a flat and youthful stomach. Reverse abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin above the navel. Reverse abdominoplasty, or reverse tummy tuck, targets the upper abdomen and lower groin area. The procedure addresses excess skin and fat in these areas, often due to weight loss or aging.
In reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey, specialists start with an incision just above the groin area, similar to the traditional abdominoplasty procedure. However, surgeons focus on removing excess skin and fat from the upper abdomen and lower groin area rather than tightening the abdominal muscles. Experts then pull the remaining skin down and sew it to create a tighter, more toned look.
Unlike a traditional tummy tuck, a reverse abdominoplasty cuts the skin from the lower abdomen. In this surgery, doctors remove only the upper part of the skin.
For reverse abdominoplasty, our specialists use an incision under the breast that hides the scars inside the breast fold. Surgeons can easily combine this technique with other body contouring procedures, such as breast lifts and implants, using the same incision for optimum results. Compared to the traditional abdominoplasty, this method is much less invasive and has a shorter recovery time. However, the results may not be as dramatic as those achieved with a traditional tummy tuck.
We recommend the reverse abdominoplasty procedure in Turkey to patients who have generally lost a significant amount of weight and have skin laxity in the upper abdomen. It is also suitable for patients who have had surgery in the upper abdomen, such as a cesarean section, and want to remove sagging skin and cracks in the area.
It is important to note that although a reverse tummy tuck can improve the appearance of the upper abdomen and lower groin area, it will not resolve issues such as stretch marks or loose abdominal muscles. As with any surgical procedure, we must consult our plastic surgeon to discuss your specific needs and goals and determine if a reverse tummy tuck is suitable.
What is Reverse Abdominoplasty?
Reverse abdominoplasty, or reverse tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure targeting the lower abdomen and upper groin area. Usually, our specialists perform this procedure on people with excess skin and fat in these areas due to weight loss or aging. Surgeons begin the process with an incision just above the groin area, similar to a traditional tummy tuck. However, surgeons focus on removing excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and upper groin area rather than stretching the abdominal muscles. Experts then pull the remaining skin down and sew it to create a tighter, more toned look.
Recovery time for a reverse tummy tuck can vary from person to person. Also, most patients can return to normal activities within 2 to 4 weeks. It should also note that this type of tummy tuck significantly improves the appearance of the lower abdomen and upper groin area, as we said above; however, it will not completely solve problems such as stretch marks or loose abdominal muscles.
The recovery time from reverse abdominoplasty surgery is typically shorter than a traditional tummy tuck, and most patients can return to their normal activities within a few weeks. There may be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the first days after surgery. However, these symptoms can be relieved with medication and rest.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Reverse Abdominoplasty?
Patients who have lost significant weight, have sagging tissue above the belly button (even after a previous tummy tuck), or want a breast lift, breast implant, or tummy tuck may be suitable candidates for reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey. The ideal candidate should be healthy, not a smoker, understand the surgical procedure, and have realistic expectations for results.
Women who plan to become pregnant in the future should first discuss their aesthetic goals with our doctor. It is possible that pregnancy stretches the abdominal tissues and destroys the initial results of the surgery. In this case, you may need to resort to surgery again. Ideal candidates for a reverse tummy tuck are people with excess skin and fat in the upper abdomen and lower groin area, often due to weight loss or aging. In general, though, check out the ideal candidates for reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey:
- People who have lost a significant amount of weight and have loose skin in the upper abdomen
- Those who have previously had operations such as a cesarean section in the upper abdomen and want to remove sagging and cracks in the region
- People in good general health who don’t have medical conditions that would increase the risk of complications from surgery
- Those who have a stable weight and don’t plan to lose a significant amount of weight
- Those who have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure
Therefore, you should still consult our surgeon to determine if this type of tummy tuck is the right choice for you. Our surgeon will evaluate your medical history, physical exam, and specific goals to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
What Happens at the Reverse Abdominoplasty Consultation?
During a reverse abdominoplasty consultation in Turkey, our specialists will assess your physical condition, discuss your goals and concerns, and provide you with detailed information about the procedure. The talk allows you to ask questions, raise your concerns, and learn what to expect from the process and surgery. An abdominoplasty consultation in Turkey typically includes the following:
- Medical history: Our surgeon will ask about your medical history, including previous surgeries, current medications, and any medical conditions that may affect the procedure.
- Physical examination: The specialist will perform a physical exam that includes measurements of the abdomen to assess the amount of excess skin and fat and determine the best approach for surgery.
- Discussing goals and expectations: The surgeon will ask about your goals and expectations for the surgery and explain the benefits and limitations of the procedure.
- Discussing the risks and complications: The doctor will explain the possible risks and complications of the procedure, including the risks of infection, bleeding, and anesthesia.
- Recovery and aftercare discussion: The specialist will explain the healing process, including the expected time frame for a return to normal activities, and will provide aftercare instructions such as wound care and pain management.
To help our surgeon give you the best advice, asking questions and being honest about your expectations is essential. Our specialist will also be able to tell you if you are a good candidate for a reverse tummy tuck and if other options may be better suited to your specific needs.
What are the Reverse Abdominoplasty Risks?
Of course, the reverse tummy tuck procedure in Turkey carries certain risks and complications, as with any surgical procedure. Check out the risks of reverse abdominoplasty in general:
- Infection: This problem can occur at the incision site and may require antibiotics or even more surgery to clean the wound. However, this problem is now infrequent.
- Bleeding: In rare cases, bleeding may occur after surgery, and you may need to return to the surgical facility to control the bleeding.
- Anesthesia risks: As with any surgery requiring anesthesia, there is always a risk of complications related to the use of anesthesia. However, we have minimized this risk thanks to new techniques and technologies.
- Numbness and nerve damage: There may be numbness and tingling in the skin around the incision site. Although this problem is generally temporary, it can also be permanent in rare cases.
- Blood clots: This major problem can occur in the legs or lungs. It can be life-threatening if you don’t treat this problem right away.
- Scar: There will be a scar that may be evident from the incision and, in some cases, may be larger than expected but will require revision if unsatisfactory. The biggest reason for this is inexperienced surgeons.
- Unsatisfactory results: There is always a risk that the surgery results will not be what you want and that you will need additional surgery to correct.
- Wound healing problems: Delayed wound healing, wound dehiscence (wound dehiscence), and infections may occur.
How to Prepare for Reverse Abdominoplasty Procedure?
Preparing for the reverse abdominoplasty procedure in Turkey ensures that the surgery goes smoothly and that the healing process is as comfortable as possible. There are some steps you should take to prepare for the procedure. Before the procedure, the surgeons will give you detailed instructions on preparing for surgery and answer any questions you may have.
In addition, smoking during this period dramatically hinders the healing process and may increase the risk of complications. For this reason, you must stop smoking at least 6 weeks before the surgery. Certain medications, including blood thinners, can increase your risk of bleeding. Therefore, you should stop using such drugs in the days before the operation.
Our specialists will likely ask you to have blood tests and a physical exam before surgery to ensure you’re healthy enough for the reverse abdominoplasty procedure. Surgeons will give you specific instructions on preparing for surgery, including when to stop eating and drinking and how to take care of yourself after surgery. It is essential to carefully follow the instructions given by your surgeon and ask any potential questions to make sure you are well-prepared for the procedure. Your success rate will increase if you follow the preparation process without difficulty.
What is the Procedure for Reverse Abdominoplasty?
Reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey is necessary to remove excess skin and fat from the lower back and upper hip area. We typically perform the process under general anesthesia for your comfort. This critical method will take several hours. The steps involved in a reverse tummy tuck can vary depending on the case. In general, take a look at the reverse abdominoplasty procedure steps in Turkey:
Our specialists will give you general anesthesia to keep you comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. Thus, you will have a very comfortable and trouble-free treatment.
Our surgeon will make a minimal incision along your lower back or upper hip, depending on your excess skin and fat location. Remember that our experts use the latest technologies and techniques for this process. In addition, our specialists can use the liposuction method, if necessary, to remove excess fat from the area.
- Tissue resection
Our surgeon will remove excess skin and fat from the area through the incision. Then the specialist can also tighten the lower back and upper hip muscles to improve the site’s contour.
- Closing the incision
The surgeon will aesthetically close the incision completely. The doctor may place drainage tubes to help remove excess fluid and prevent fluid buildup. To help protect the area and speed healing, the surgeon applies a dressing to the incision site. After the procedure, you will need to rest and allow your body to recover.
The surgeon will give you detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during the recovery process, including wound care, pain management, and follow-up appointments. It is important to note that recovery time can vary from person to person and will depend on the extent of the surgery and the individual healing process.
How is the Recovery After Reverse Abdominoplasty?
Recovery after a reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey may take 1 to 2 weeks. You can expect swelling and mild bruising that you can easily tolerate during this period. You may wear a compression garment to support the area and reduce swelling.
Our specialist applies dressings to the incision area to help protect the area and speed healing. The surgeon will instruct you how to care for your bandages and when to change them. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness may remain for the first 10-14 days.
It is normal to feel discomfort for the first week after surgery. Our surgeon will prescribe you pain medication to relieve some of this pain. Most patients can return to their social activities approximately 2-3 weeks after the procedure. However, you should avoid exercise and heavy lifting for at least 4 to 6 weeks.
Generally, taking things slowly during the recovery process is essential. Get plenty of rest during this process and allow the body to heal. Drink enough water, and don’t force your body to do things it’s not ready to do. During this time, you should prioritize being as healthy as you can. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of our surgeon. The more knowledgeable you are during your recovery, the better your recovery will be.
When Will You See Reverse Abdominoplasty Results?
You will see the results of reverse abdominoplasty in Turkey right after the surgery. But full effects may not appear for several weeks or months. Your recovery may take a few weeks, and the swelling and bruising may take some time. This can make it difficult to see your final results right away.
During the first few weeks of recovery, you will likely experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort that may make it difficult for you to see the final results. As the swelling goes down and your incision heals, you will be able to see the final results of the procedure. It may take a few months to a year for the final results of the reverse tummy tuck procedure in Turkey to appear fully. It may take several months to a year for the scar at the incision site to disappear, and it may take some time for the skin to get used to its new contour. The surgeon will be able to give you a better estimate of when you can expect to see the final results based on your situation.
It is crucial to remember that the procedure results may not appear immediately, and the recovery process may take some time. However, with proper care and attention, you should be able to see the full results of the procedure promptly.
