Can I have a second abdominal stretch operation?
After about 1 year from your previous surgery, you may have a safe second-time abdominal stretch operation. But if you want to take your fat in this second operation, we can recall that in this surgery very limited fat can be extracted from the abdomen and waist region. Because this region has been removed from the operation in the previous classical technique, the blood circulation is considered to be below normal and it is not done if abrasive operations such as degreasing are possible.
How annoying are the surgical tracks?
Abdominal stretching surgery can easily be hidden in underwear. The line, which is in a thin pink color, will gradually become whitened. You can make the abdominal surgery sign as less obvious as possible using the trail creams and silicone bands your doctor recommends to you.
Can liposuction be done with abdominal stretching?

How long can I return to normal life after Abdominal Tension?
In the first few days after abdominal stretch surgery, the abdominal area will swell. It is also normal to feel pain and discomfort that can be relieved by medication. Drains placed during surgery are usually 3-5. days. Depending on the surgical procedure performed, there is one in the hospital and rarely a few days.
Even if there is difficulty in standing upright in the beginning, early walking will start. The use of sutures, dressings, washing, and corsets depends on the condition of the patient and on the surgical preferences of the surgeon and will be planned in the postoperative period.
After an abdominal stretch operation it may take several weeks to return to previous activities again. If the physical condition of the patient has good and strong abdominal muscles, this process is even shorter. Exercise will have a positive impact on the healing process, help reduce the swelling, lower blood clot risk, and gain abdominal muscle tone. However, strict exercise programs, especially for the abdominal muscles, they are postponed until they can easily do so.
The scars that develop due to abdominal stretch surgery will show a red appearance for the first 3-6 months but will gradually become less noticeable by fading over time. However, these traces are always underwear and under bikini, so they do not affect the patients negatively.
What are the risks of abdominal stretch surgery?
All surgical procedures have some uncertainties and risks. Every year hundreds of abdominal stretch operations are successfully performed. This surgery gives very good results in the hands of an aesthetic surgeon who has experience in shaping the body. However, there are risks associated with anesthesia that can be seen in all surgical procedures and specific risks associated with this surgery.
Specific risks that may be seen after abdominal stretch surgery include wound infection, blood or body fluid accumulation in the operating room, blood clot discharge, and bad wound healing. Wound infection can be eliminated by drainage and antibiotic use. Surgical blood or body fluid accumulation is rarely seen due to the drains usually placed in the surgery, but when necessary, it is removed by a second intervention.
Blood clotting (embolism) is a complication that can be seen in elderly patients, may cause life-threatening complications and may be seen after every operation. This risk is usually eliminated by using a varicose vein and using some medicines by lifting and walking the patient early on after the abdominal stretching operation.
Bad wound healing usually results in marked traces. Sometimes this may suggest a second intervention to go through these bad tracks. People with smokers and those with systemic disease that impairs wound healing (such as diabetes) are at greater risk of bad wound healing.
