Abdominoplasty is a tummy tuck surgery that can be performed by people who have given birth and have sagging. If the problem area is limited to the area under the belly, mini abdominoplasty, if it covers the entire abdomen, abdominoplasty, and if it is a large area that includes the waist, environmental abdominoplasty is performed.
Tummy surgery is performed by using a cutaneous incision in the inguinal region, meaning at the lower abdomen. Think of it as a little longer than the C-section mark. A second incision is made for the transfer of the navel bore around the navel. Loosened abdominal wall muscles are stitched together to relieve abdominal sagginess.
Tummy tuck surgery may take approximately 2-5 hours, and sometimes 1-2 hours.
Abdominoplasty does not prevent you from getting pregnant or cause you problems during pregnancy. However, after giving birth, your stomach may sag a little again.
For newly moms, tummy tuck surgery is recommended for the end of the first year. In this process, the mother loses the weight she wants to lose, and the sagging level becomes fully visible.

However, you can make the scar on your stomach stretching surgery less obvious by using the scar preventing creams and silicone tapes recommended by our doctor.
