Body Tightening Treatment Recovery Time

Body contouring surgery in Turkey requires 1 to 3 nights in the hospital. You can expect to recover within 1 to 5 days after discharge from the hospital.

How Is a Body Lift Surgery Performed?

Body lift in turkey is a one-session procedure done under general anesthesia. The surgeons can break the procedure into several individual components depending on the patient's requirements and expectations. These components include: 

  • Brachioplasty or arm lift surgery

  • Mastopexy or breast lift surgery

  • Abdominoplasty 

  • The lower body lift covers the tummy, outer thighs, and the area around the midsection. 

Body lift surgery typically lasts between 3 to 5 hours, depending on the procedures included. Once the procedure is over, the patients will spend between 1 to 3 days in the hospital under a close examination. 

1. Final consultation with your surgeon

Your first consultation will be done online, but when you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your Otoplasty specialist surgeon. During this session you are expected to inform the surgeon about your medical record, allergies, and if you’re currently taking any medication.

Even after telling your surgeon about your medical record, you must go through some medical tests. Afterward, you will discuss the procedure in detail. If you are on the same page with your surgeon, he/she will make an illustration by drawing some marks on your body as he/she prepares you for the surgery.

Since body lift surgery involves multiple procedures, it is impossible and dangerous to undergo all of them in one session. So, if you need more than 2 surgeries, your surgeon will come up with a treatment plan that is very convenient for you.

2. Taking the anesthesia

When the test results are out and your surgeon is satisfied, you will be then given general anesthesia. In some cases, this procedure can be performed while the patient is under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will decide what’s best for you.   

3. How is the body lift procedure performed?

When you have been given anesthesia, your surgeon will start to make the incisions. The incisions made vary from one patient to the other. Depending on the amount of excess skin to be removed, your surgeon will decide on where to make the incisions, but he/she will inform you during your face-to-face consultation.

Generally, the incision technique used will be following your needs and expectations.

Soon after the incisions are made, your surgeon will move on to remove and reposition excess skin. The surgeon can also tighten the abdominal muscles and in most cases, the patient’s belly button will need to be repositioned.

After this process, your surgeon will close the incisions with sutures, and the operated area will be bandaged. Small drainage tubes can also be placed under the skin for a while to collect the blood or fluids.

4. Post-op checks

A day after the surgery, your surgeon will have to do some check-ups. He/she will also give you some instructions to follow during the recovery period. You will also be given some meds that will accelerate the recovery process and douse any sort of discomfort.

What Should I Expect From A Body Lift Procedure?

  • You should wear compression garments to minimize the swelling.
  • You should check your incisions to recognize the appearance of any infection.
  • You can experience pain, bruising, and swelling for about a month after the surgery.
  • You should avoid strenuous activities for 6 weeks but, you can continue your normal activities within a couple of days.
  • You should make light walks to prevent blood clots.
  • You will have intermittent follow-up visits depending on your recovery plan.
  • You can see the new body shape immediately after the surgery, but the final results will be seen in 6 months.
