Every type of surgery, no matter the procedure, comes with the possibility of risks and/or side effects. For abdominoplasty specifically, the following complications are associated:
- Temporary bruising and swelling
- Blood clots
- Visible scarring
- Skin loss
During an examination with a qualified tummy tuck surgeon, he or she will be able to disclose if they suspect you to be in jeopardy of experiencing these difficulties. If you feel that you may be susceptible to these, or any other complications, it is strongly suggested that you share that information with your doctor. Your complete honesty will help to enhance your chances for a successful tummy tuck surgery.
