Fleur De Lis – Vertical Tummy Tuck Surgery

Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Turkey (Vertical Tummy Tuck Surgery)

Fleur de lis, also known as vertical tummy tuck surgery, is a specialized surgical procedure offered by Clinic Health Beauty in Istanbul, Turkey.

Fleur de lis surgery differs from classical tummy tuck surgery. The vertical tummy tuck surgery is called Fleur De Lis (FDL) surgery because the surgical incision resembles the Lily Iris flower. This flower represents hope and nobility and is attributed to the Virgin Mary in Christianity. It is also the symbol of the city of New Orleans.

What is Fleur De Lis Surgery?

Fleur de lis surgery is a procedure performed on patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and experience severe laxity in the upper and lower abdomen. This surgery is typically required following bariatric procedures such as Gastric Sleeve Surgery, Gastric Bypass, or Obesity Surgery, or after significant weight loss has been achieved through other means.

How is Fleur De Lis Surgery Performed in Turkey?

Prior to undergoing Fleur de lis surgery in Turkey, an experienced doctor specialized in this field will conduct a thorough consultation with the patient. The doctor will determine whether the patient requires a classic tummy tuck or a vertical tummy tuck (Fleur de lis).

Fleur de lis surgery involves the removal of excess skin both vertically and horizontally. It is typically recommended for patients with significant skin laxity in the upper abdomen, specifically above the belly button, and excessive sagging.

During this operation, a surgical incision is made from the lower part of the rib cage to the lower abdomen. The excess skin in the upper and lower abdomen is stretched from both sides and then surgically removed. The excess skin below the belly button is stretched either 270 or 360 degrees and then removed through a horizontal incision. If necessary, excess fat can also be removed by liposuction.

Fleur de lis surgery typically takes six hours and is performed under general anesthesia. It is recommended to have the surgery done at A Plus Hospital by a specialistin aesthetic and plastic surgery. The patient will stay in the hospital for one night for preoperative tests and two nights for postoperative care, for a total of three nights.

Before and After Fleur De lis Surgery

Prior to undergoing Fleur de lis surgery, patients must adhere to a set of guidelines. These guidelines will be provided in writing by our health assistants prior to the operation. The most crucial guideline is to refrain from smoking for at least one month before the surgery.

Fleur de lis is a major surgical procedure that involves long surgical incisions. You should quit smoking at least one month before surgery to ensure that the stitches stay in the best shape, the wound heals quickly, the risk of infection remains low, and your stitches do not open during the healing process. A nicotine test may be performed during the preoperative exam. If your nicotine level is high, your surgery may be canceled.

After fleur de lis surgery, patients should take care of the suture area and avoid movements that strain or stretch the stitches. Wearing a body corset for about 6 weeks will protect and shape the body properly. You may begin taking light walks 10 days after your surgery. It is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and to pay attention to your nutrition.

Regularly tend to your wounds and send pictures of your surgical site every 15 days. Notify us immediately of any bruising, excessive redness, or opening of stitches.
