Abdominoplasty could be performed partially (mini tummy tuck) or fully depending on the condition of the patient. The main difference between partial or full abdominoplasty is that during the partial one, the belly button (navel) is not repositioned. If the patient has a great deal of excess fat below the navel, full abdominoplasty must be performed.
Abdominoplasty can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction. It is an ideal procedure to get a younger, flatter shaped abdomen. According to our doctor, Dr. Serbulent Guzey, the fear of having visible scar tissues on the abdomens is totally unnecessary. During the operation, a few incisions are made near the pubic area so that patients can comfortably wear their bikinis. Patients may safely travel by an airplane 7 days after the operation.
