Possible Complications of a Tummy Tuck Surgery
As is true of many cosmetic surgeries, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, is not a substitute for traditional weight loss, healthy eating or exercise. In fact, a patient must take special care to eat properly and exercise, as any significant weight gain effectively undoes the beneficial effects of the procedure. Patients should also therefore have completed any plans for significant weight loss and avoid any future pregnancy for the same reason.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure, and as such carries with it all the traditional risks associated with surgery, including:
- Potential reaction to the anesthetic.
- Temporary pain and swelling.
