Risks, Side Effects and Recovery from a Tummy Tuck
Interested in a popular tummy tuck procedure, but not sure about the risks and rewards? Here are a few things you should know before opting for this cosmetic procedure:
- What Makes a Good Candidate – People who are best suited to an abdominoplasty procedure are in good health. Anesthesia is required, so your heart, kidneys and lungs need to be strong and healthy for the procedure. People who experience severe, hypertrophic or keloid scarring may not be advised to undergo the procedure. Patients with a small frame with excess fat or skin on the abdomen fare best, while those who are overweight or obese are not recommended to have this procedure. If you are considering a tummy tuck after childbirth, you will want to wait until your weight has stabilized. Previous surgeries (other than Caesarian) on the abdomen may increase the risk of complications.
- What are the Risks – The tummy tuck is an elective surgery, so safety is of the utmost importance. Poor wound healing, sensitivity, infection, and other healing risks are the most common problems. Anesthesia poses some risks as well as bleeding from incisions. If you have a blood disorder, overly sensitive skin, troubles healing or cannot take the time to properly care for your incisions post-surgery, a tummy tuck is not the procedure for you. UELC offers clear directions for after-care and follow-up care to ensure your road to recovery provides the best results possible.
- Recovery – Whether you have a demanding job, young children or other responsibilities, we know that getting back to your busy lifestyle is top of mind. Following a tummy tuck procedure, most patients require four weeks to rest and fully recover. Follow-up care will be provided by your cosmetic surgeon who can also offer advice and support to maintain results.Be sure to have a good support system in place to help you, from pickup post-operation all the way through to healing and recovery.
