What is an abdominoplasty with or without liposuction?

Abdominoplasty is one of the most complex plastic surgery procedures that can be performed in Turkey. It aims to correct the unsightly appearance of the abdominal wall and to make the stomach firm and flat again.

The procedure can significantly alter the overall appearance of the patient’s body when performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction.

The traditional tummy tuck technique in Istanbul aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen by strengthening loose abdominal muscles and removing excess skin from the lower abdomen. But if the patient also has excess fatty tissue on the abdomen and flanks, the results of traditional abdominoplasty may not be as good as expected.

That’s why it’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who can guide you through the process of choosing the procedure or combination of procedures that are best suited to your particular case.

In this article, we will discuss the details of abdominoplasty and the results obtained when it is performed with or without liposuction.

Who are the best candidates for abdominoplasty?

Different categories of patients can be good candidates for the procedure. In the vast majority of cases, these are women who have had one or more pregnancies and who have been unable to regain the firm, beautiful appearance of the abdominal wall after giving birth, despite returning to a normal weight.

They may have stretch marks on the abdomen, particularly on the lower part, the muscles of the abdominal wall may be loose and distended, and there may also be sagging skin on the stomach.

The condition that affects the abdominal muscles and creates a vacuum is called diastasis recti, and it occurs during pregnancy due to the increasing size of the uterus. Diastasis recti cannot be resolved by exercise or diet, and plastic surgery is the only effective solution to restore the tummy’s beautiful appearance.

Otherwise, loose stomach muscles can create a protruding belly that prevents it from looking flat and firm. Not only can physical exercise not correct this condition, it can even accentuate it and make it more visible.

Another important category of patients who are good candidates for abdominoplasty are those who have undergone massive weight loss, often after bariatric surgery. Excess skin can be quite significant for these patients, with skin folds that may partially or completely cover the supra pubic area.

These patients can be both men and women who wish to improve the appearance of the tummy and redefine their overall appearance after weight loss.

Patients who are faced with excess fatty tissue on the abdomen and who have lost the elasticity of their skin due to ageing are also good candidates for a tummy tuck.

Tummy tuck without liposuction

So how is a tummy tuck performed without liposuction? The plastic surgeon makes an incision in the suprapubic area. The length of the incision depends directly on the amount of excess skin tissue to be removed. The skin and subcutaneous tissue are detached from the muscles and the excess skin is surgically removed.

If necessary, the relaxed abdominal muscles are sutured together to correct the diastasis recti. If an umbilical hernia is present, it will also be corrected. The operation may take up to two hours, depending on the complexity of each case.

This type of abdominoplasty is recommended for patients of normal weight and without excess adipose tissue on the stomach or flanks.

After a traditional tummy tuck, the aesthetic effects will only affect the front of the body, and the patient will have a flat, firm stomach. However, the results of traditional abdominoplasty may be less impressive when performed on patients with fat accumulation in the midline.

Tummy tuck with liposuction

Tummy tuck liposuction in Turkey is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures today. It safely and significantly reshapes the body by removing localized pockets of fat that are stubborn and difficult to remove with exercise and diet.

Liposuction is often recommended for patients undergoing tummy tuck surgery after massive weight loss or bariatric surgery, as in most cases there will be a layer of fat that needs to be reduced to improve the appearance of the tummy.

Liposuction is also recommended for patients who have fat deposits on their flanks. If liposuction is not performed on the flanks, the body will have a square shape after the operation. The abdomen will be flat and firm, but because of the fat deposits on the sides, the patient will not have beautiful curves and a good figure.

When abdominoplasty is performed using liposuction, the plastic surgeon first deals with the areas with excess fatty tissue and only then removes the excess skin on the lower part of the abdomen.

Small incisions of no more than 3 to 4 mm are made on the abdomen and flanks. The liposuction cannula is inserted through the incisions, and the plastic surgeon begins to move the cannula back and forth to dislodge the fat. Once dislodged and liquefied, the fat is suctioned away using a medical vacuum device.

Liposuction is performed until a symmetrical and aesthetic result is achieved and the fat layer is considerably reduced and the flanks reshaped. Once this first stage is complete, the plastic surgeon can move on to the classic tummy tuck technique to remove excess skin tissue.

Tummy tuck: With or without liposuction?

This is a question I receive from many patients, which is easy to answer once the patient has attended the pre-operative consultation and undergone a physical examination. At the same time, it’s a difficult question to answer if you don’t see the patient. In other words, to understand which procedure would be best for you, you need to see the plastic surgeon for a consultation. Bear in mind that every patient is different, every body shape has its own characteristics and we tend to deposit fat according to our morphology.

In the case of a tummy tuck, liposuction is often performed on the abdominal wall and flanks, but it is not uncommon for patients to request liposuction on the thighs as well.

Discuss your aesthetic concerns with your plastic surgeon during your consultation and take his or her recommendations into consideration before scheduling your operation.


Tummy tuck surgery in Istanbul is a complex procedure that can produce spectacular results, provided you have the right medical indication. An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon will know which procedure will help you achieve your goals.

There are different categories of patients who want or need a tummy tuck. A traditional tummy tuck, performed alone, is a good option for patients who have loose abdominal muscles and loose skin in the lower abdomen, but who do not have a lot of fatty tissue on the abdomen or flanks.

When the patient has loose skin, weak muscles and also excess fat on the abdominal wall and sides of the body, the plastic surgeon may recommend tummy tuck with liposuction to achieve superior results. Liposuction will reduce the thickness of the fat layer, making the tummy flat and firm and the waist smaller.
