There are 4 important matters on tummy tucks. Which are they? How to not to skip any of them? How to concretize muscle tissue? There are many questions connected with tummy tuck operations, let's find the answers in the following article.

Classic Tummy Tuck operations' age is over

Tummy tuck operations are surgical attempts we do to our patients who have surplus fat deposition on their abdominal area. It’s a situation that comes with ptosis problem, giving birth, hormonal instabilities, medications in use and genetic reasons.

On classic tummy tuck operations, it’s interfered with a longer cut than caesarean line. cut is longer than caesarean line and it’s hidden in underwear. Over fat, dewlap and cracks on it are also removed. Loose muscle tissue in stomach is also strenghtened and the cut is closed.

Until this part, what I tell is a classic tummy tuck surgery. Concertning my oerations, I always say that there are some extra points that we must be careful about and I apply them.

There are 4 important matters on tummy tucks:

The first one is belly button. After abdomen skin and fatty tissue has been tautened, creating a new belly button will become a current issue. Loosen abdominals are repaired, sewed, tightened and now it’s belly button’s turn. This new belly button must be created on patient’s pelvis line and it must be designed from the rough. By this means, the harmony between hip and abdominal region will be on top-level.

The other important point is about the cut’s location. On a successful tummy tuck operation, cut trail must be lower as much as possible like caesarean line, under the bikini line. When the existing area is healed, the patient must camouflage the cut under her bikini or underwear, even if it’s vague.

The third matter that doctor must be careful on tummy tuck operation is mons pubis. That’s the most skipped part of the operation. This area is a swolen, hairy area that starts under caesarean line and goes to clitoris. This area must be left in harmony with new abdomen. A swollen mons pubis that starts from a tense abdomen causes distress, that’s why their harmony is extremely important.

The last one that I want to mention is region of the loin. Even if the abdominal region gets rid of all the fat, the untouched waist creates an unproportional structure. That’s why structure must be fit to waist just like a pleated skirt.

A close look to contemporary tummy tuck

Women who want to have a muscular body develop up their abdominal muscles. Additional to abdominal muscle, we see women who crowd gyms for ab crack, a hollow shape that starts between breasts to the stomach. A well-built body is always wanted and it’s aesthetic. Actually, women’s bodies are admired for their rounded shape and elegance.

Because woman symbolizes elegance, she is mother, soft, gentle. She fights with her mind, not her body. But in today’s world, increased number of working women, having the potential of working in every sector, make women appear stronger. Shortly, it’s a matter of image. That’s why the number of women who do sports, try to look more energetic and want abdominal muscles and ab crack has increased. Shortly, we add the view of ab crack and abdominal muscle on the new generation tummy tuck operations.

To be seen lively, energetic, strong, steady and invincible

After we complete the tummy tuck operation, we strip the abdomen away from a tense drum look and we give more bulgy shapes to it. We concretize the muscles from inside, then we close the cut. Our aim in tummy tucks is to give fat a muscle shape. The technique that we use is liposculpture method. We slenderize the fat accumulation near muscle edges. In this manner, a muscular appearance is formed. For ab crack appereance, we do the same thing to the area above the stomach. The muscle tissue that we concretize while operation tummy tuck, shows up easily.
