Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck, is one of the most effective body contouring procedures that remove skin and excess fat from the middle to lower abdomen and tightens the weakened abdominal muscles for a sleeker, more defined appearance.

Health Istanbul Group tummy tuck surgeons are experts in body contouring procedures and have the most innovative techniques to help you achieve a pleasant abdominal profile and boost your self-confidence.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

  • Aging
  • Significant fluctuations in weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Heredity
  • Prior surgery

Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized surgery and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.


The best candidate for liposuction is an individual of average or slightly above-average weight.

  •  In good health
  •  People with a localized area of fat
  •  Realistic expectations
  •  People with good skin elasticity
  •  Non-smokers


One of our doctors at Istanbul Health Group will manage a pre-operative examination, discuss your appearance goals and tell you the envisaged results. Depending on the extent of surgery and the desired results, tummy tuck in Turkey can take anywhere from 1-2 hours.

This is highly dependent on the amount of excess tissue you have deposited in the lower abdominal wall. There are a variety of options for abdominoplasty offered at Health Istanbul Group.
