        Simple Guide to Tummy Tuck Surgery in Turkey 🩺

        A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty surgery, is a popular body aesthetics procedure that works wonders through a double action:

        1. Removing excess skin from the abdominal midsection. 
        2. Tightening the underlying muscles for a lean end-result.

        Even though it is not a requisite, abdominoplasty in Turkey is often performed in combination with liposuction in Turkey. This often leads to much better results in terms of body sculpting.

        Overall, abdominal skin stretching is meant to provide a firmer, flatter appearance, enhancing the natural contours of the body. A tummy tuck is reported to bring the joy of renewed confidence and self-assuredness.

        Why Undergo Abdominoplasty Surgery?

        Abdominoplasty can give you a flatter, more toned appearance, while ridding yourself from unwanted hanging skin for life.

        A tummy tuck is typically recommended for mothers after pregnancy (combined surgeries are known as a “mommy makeover“). People who have experienced a significant weight loss are also frequent patients, with many undergoing the procedure after bariatric surgery.

        If your skin is not reabsorbed for whatever reason, or only partially reabsorbed, plastic surgery may be feasible and you can consider undergoing a tummy tuck in Turkey.

        Pros and Cons of a Tummy Tuck Turkey

        According to the International Society of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery, Turkey is among the top ten countries in the world in number of plastic surgeries performed (a whooping 950,365 in 2021).

        Here’s the main reasons contributing to its growing popularity:
        Experienced Surgeons in Turkey

        Turkey is home to many surgeons of the European-Board. Due to the sheer demand of local and International patients, they rank amongst the most experienced in Europe. 

        Medical Tourism

        Turkey offers the unique opportunity of combining a medical journey with culture and leisure travel, exploring gastronomy, palaces, museums and shopping for much cheaper.


        Turkey is known for offering high-quality treatments at reasonable prices. The all-inclusive travel + operation cost of a tummy tuck in Turkey is an average £3,000 to £5, 000, compared to £5,000 to £10,000, the average price of abdominoplasty in the UK.

        Aftercare and recovery

        Turkey has a wide range of options for post-operative care, including recovery houses, many clinics and hospitals offer recovery packages and extensive follow-up.

        You will have to weight in the advantages and disadvantages of undergoing a tummy tuck in Turkey:
        Language barrier

        Clinics and hospitals in Turkey usually have staff that speak multiple languages, but depending on the place, there may be a language barrier that can make communication difficult.

        Risk of complications

        As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of complications. It’s important to thoroughly research the clinic and surgeon you are considering and to have realistic expectations.


        Traveling for a surgery, especially if you are going abroad, can add an extra layer of complexity and stress.

        How much does a tummy tuck cost in Turkey?

        When answering how much is a tummy tuck in Turkey we can only speak in general terms, as prices vary depending on the hospital, surgeon, intervention and other choices.

        Who Is A Good Candidate For Abdominoplasty?

        A tummy tuck is not for everyone, even if you have excess skin.

        A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a transformative cosmetic surgery designed to reshape the abdominal region, offering a firmer and more toned appearance. But who exactly stands to benefit the most from this procedure? Let’s explore the key indicators that make someone an ideal candidate:

        • Weight Stability: Individuals who are close to their ideal weight or have maintained a stable weight for some time.

        • Excess Abdominal Skin: Those with sagging or excess skin in the abdominal area, often following significant weight loss or pregnancy.

        • Weakened Abdominal Muscles: People who experience muscle laxity or separation that exercise alone can’t rectify.

        • Good Overall Health: Those in generally good health without chronic conditions that might impede healing.

        • Non-smokers: Smoking can negatively affect healing, so non-smokers or those willing to quit before and after surgery are ideal candidates.

        • Realistic Expectations: Individuals who understand the procedure, potential outcomes, and are mentally prepared for the recovery process.

        Remember, a personal consultation with a qualified surgeon is the best way to ascertain individual suitability for a tummy tuck.

        Consider the Risks of Tummy Tuck Procedure

        All surgeries have risks, and a tummy tuck is no exception. It would be irresponsible from any medical practitioner to hide this fact.

        Unpleasant effects may be felt after the operation, things may not go as planned, complications may take place. Possible risks include:

        Our main concern is always your safety. Our medical personnel will take care of you at all times and all precautions will be in place to ensure everything runs as safely as possible.

        We advise you to take your time and calmly decide whether you are OK with such risks. With Care in Turkey, you will be operated at the best facilities by EBOPRAS accredited surgeons. Our complication rate is virtually zero and we grant a free medical insurance to all of our patients.

        Types of Tummy Tuck Surgery

        Depending on the state of your skin, your age, or prior operations, one technique may be most suitable or another. There are many techniques to stretch skin and sculpt tummies. At Care in Turkey, we review your case and give you professional advice. 

        The choice of tummy tuck surgery in Turkey is the patient’s decision, we always invite patients to be informed as duly as possible from trusted, reliable sources.

        Here’s the different types of tummy tuck surgery.
        Fleur de Lis Tummy Tuck

        A Fleur de Lis Tummy Tuck, named after the French term for ‘Lily flower,’ is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen.

        Extended Tummy Tuck
        On top of the upper and lower abdominal area, an extended tummy tuck also involves the love handles, stretching further along the patient’s hips.
        Mini Tummy Tuck

        A mini tummy tuck stretches skin from the lower abdomen. Results are not as remarkable as the prior two, but recovery is faster. This might be the best option if you don’t have much excess skin.

        Hourglass Tummy Tuck

        An hourglass tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that combines traditional abdominoplasty with liposuction to create a curvier waistline. Beyond removing excess skin and tightening abdominal muscles, this procedure narrows the waist and accentuates the hips, achieving the desired hourglass silhouette.

        How long is a tummy tuck operation?

        The total length of a tummy tuck operation will depend on the kind of surgery you opt for. While a mini abdominoplasty will take 1-2 hours, a full abdominoplasty can take anywhere between 2-5 hours.

        Is it safe to have a tummy tuck in Turkey?

        In the last years, Turkey has become one of the most famous hubs for plastic surgery in the world. This is not explained by affordable prices alone. High medical standards have been as determinant, spreading trust and credibility over procedures such as a tummy tuck in Turkey.

        Medical Standards in Turkey for Tummy Tuck Surgery

        The Turkish medical establishment is wealthy and resourceful, constituting one of the leading economic motors of the country. Many of patients are greatly impressed with the quality of the facilities and medical personnel they find in Istanbul or in other Turkish cities, such as Antalya or Izmir, Mersin, etc.

        We encourage you to remain cautious, however. Care in Turkey warns patients about the cunning of spurious companies opening websites and social media accounts, projecting an image of legality while operating outside the law.

        To avoid any unpleasant surprises, we encourage you to choose a medical provider certified by the Turkish Ministry of Health, complying with ISO standards.

        You should not be contempt with an online certificate or banner. Request the company’s credentials at the Health Services General Directorate.

        If you choose a clinic in Turkey certified by the Turkish Ministry of Health, operating at the best facilities, with EBOPRAS and ISAPS certified surgeons, you will be met with very high standards of quality according to all measurements.

        How long should you stay in Turkey to ensure proper recovery?

        We advise patients to stay with us for as long as possible. The longer you remain after your tummy tuck in Turkey, the longer we will take care of you and guarantee the best recovery and results.

        We understand that staying for an extended time is not always possible due to work or other constraints, but a minimum 7-day period is required. This is for your own good, to avoid complications and help you through the most important part of the recovery. You should at least remain in Turkey for 1 week to ensure proper recovery.

        After such time, most patients still need rest and should ask for remote work, if possible, for one more week upon return to their home country (if their stay in Turkey has been 1 week), or at any rate allow for the minimum possible physical effort to be done at their work places. The best pre-op recommendations we can give you are:

        • Prepare all grocery shopping before travelling to Turkey
        • Contact friends or family so they can help 
        • Be ready to quit smoking and drinking for at least 1 month before and after surgery

        Fatigue is the longest-lasting symptom, for which we recommend taking vitamin supplements to allow for a faster recovery.

        To sum up, we advise you to stay in Turkey for at least 1 week after your tummy tuck surgery, but if it is possible for you to stay 2 weeks, this will be a much better time-frame. It  also gives your doctor the security of watching your progress closely and ensuring proper healing.

        How to make sure you get high-quality plastic surgery in Turkey

        Turkey has excellent hospitals, clinics and highly skilled, experienced plastic surgeons. You should be careful enough to choose a certified medical provider, operating at good facilities with licensed plastic surgeons, following codes of ethical professionalism, hygiene and patient care.

        If the price is lower, there is usually a reason why. Turkish surgeons from the European-Board charge higher rates (+60% cheaper than in Europe and the US, nonetheless), but the risks of complications and undesired effects far outweighs economic benefits, in our opinion.

        If you follow common sense rules, like in any other country, such as not going for the cheapest option, but to actually pay for a high-quality service, and make sure it is a high-quality service, by making careful research beforehand.

        If all such precautions are taken, all seems to indicate that the whole operation and recovery will develop nicely,  very fast at first, with clear improvements being felt day after day, and then a period of fatigue (internal healing), that will start to strongly fade by the 1-month after your plastic surgery in Turkey.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Is a tummy tuck dangerous?

        Tummy tuck surgery remains very safe as it does not invade any organs. Just as any other surgery, it does come with a percentage of risks, however. At Care in Turkey, we put all our work into reducing it to virtually zero.

        Can you have a baby after a tummy tuck?

        Even though it is possible, it is certainly not advisable. Pregnancy after a tummy tuck risks losing the surgery results. You should only undergo a tummy tuck if you are certain of not wanting any more children.

        How long does itching last after tummy tuck?

        Itching is experienced for a short while after the procedure, generally reduced to zero in the first 3-4 days after the operation.

        How to get rid of seroma after tummy tuck?

        In case of seroma or leakage after surgery, our nurses provide lymphatic massages to help drain fluid. Lymphatic massages will accelerate and improve your recovery while ensuring the best results.

        Can I get a tummy tuck on NHS?

        A tummy tuck is considered an aesthetic surgery, which means that social security will not pay for it (there’s few exceptions to this rule). Private medical insurances generally apply the same policy.

        Do tummy tucks leave scars?

        Yes. A tummy tuck is a skin removal procedure, eliminating excess skin through superficial incisions, such incisions do leave scars. The surgery incisions will fade away with time, however, and many patients hide it using tummy tuck scar tattoos.

        Do you need liposuction with a tummy tuck?

        Both surgeries are a popular combination with remarkable results. Their combination allows surgeons to reduce body fat while performing body sculpting simultaneously. Whether you need them both is something we cannot say without a medical consultation.

        What is a non-surgical tummy tuck?

        Patients who don’t wish to undergo surgery can opt for a non-surgical tummy tuck to eliminate excess skin and fat. Non-surgical techniques involve bandaging, cool-sculpting or muscle contraction through helium, radiofrequency or deoxycholate acid. Results are rather limited, however.

        What is the maximum BMI for tummy tuck?

        Patients can undergo a tummy tuck if their BMI is equal or lower than 35. For the best results, we recommend patients to attain a BMI below 30.

        What is the best place for a tummy tuck in Turkey?

        There are many great medical providers in Turkey, and especially in Istanbul. The most important thing is to choose a provider certified by the Turkish Ministry of Health and international corporations such as ISO, ISAPS & EBOPRAS. After all, it’s your health you’re investing in.

        What is Fleur de Lis Abdominoplasty?

        A fleur de lis abdominoplasty employs a specific kind of incision. A vertical line is drawn on the abdomen and skin is removed with a triangular incision.

        When can't I have a tummy tuck?

        Patients under certain medication or suffering chronic illnesses may not be suitable candidates for tummy tuck surgery. We advise you to get in contact with us for further information.

        Is an abdominoplasty the same as a tummy tuck?

        Both designate the same procedure.

        How much weight is typically lost with a tummy tuck?

        A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. The amount of weight lost is rarely above 4 pounds (1.8 KG). For weight loss purposes, we recommend informing yourself about bariatric surgery.

        How painful is a tummy tuck?

        A tummy tuck is undergone under general anaesthesia, and the procedure is completely painless. After waking up, patients may experience swelling and soreness to varying degrees. This will quickly disappear as painkillers are administered to ease recovery.

        Does abdominoplasty include love handles?

        All types of abdominoplasties in Turkey includes skin and fat reduction on love handles except for the mini abdominoplasty.

        What happens if you gain weight after a tummy tuck?

        Gaining weight after an abdominoplasty does not differ from normal weight gaining. If you gain too much weight, however, surgery might have been in vain.

        Are tummy tuck results permanent?

        If healthy life habits are maintained after the procedure, such as good dieting and exercise, results will be ever-lasting.

        Does your waist get smaller with a tummy tuck?

        An abdominoplasty will reduce your skin and fat volume, so yes, your waist will get smaller after the procedure.

        When can I walk straight after tummy tuck?

        Post-surgical recovery varies depending on the type of surgery and the patient’s personal conditions. On average, patients find themselves in a suitable condition to walk a couple of days after surgery.

        When can I get a tummy tuck after giving birth?

        A waiting period of at least 6 months is recommended to ensure proper recovery, weight balance and hormonal stabilisation.

        What is the difference between abdominoplasty and liposuction?

        An abdominoplasty is a skin-stretching surgery, operated to rid patients of saggy skin, whereas liposuction is a fat removal procedure. Both are often operated simultaneously, hence the confusion.
