Risks and Complications of a Tummy Tuck
There are a number of risks associated with Tummy Tuck surgeries. These include the risk of internal organs being punctured, trapped fat, and numbness after surgery. The procedure also carries a high risk of complication compared to other cosmetic procedures. One study found that 8.5% of Tummy Tuck patients were readmitted for a complication. The most common complications were wound complications. In addition, the cannula used during the procedure can puncture internal organs, causing trapped fat to migrate to the brain or lungs. There are also complications associated with numbness after the procedure.
The recovery from a tummy tuck
Among the postoperative issues that you may encounter are swelling and pain. Your healthcare provider may prescribe you some prescription medications to help you deal with the discomfort and minimize bleeding. Some of these medications may lead to constipation. You should also gradually increase your walking and sun exposure. Staying connected with positive people is also important during recovery from a tummy tuck. While recovering from this procedure, you should be proud of your decision to undergo surgery.
Complications of a tummy tuck
As with any surgical procedure, a tummy tuck surgery comes with potential risks. While it can be extremely successful, there are a number of possible complications, including infection, blood clots, skin discoloration, and scarring. Before undergoing a tummy tuck, patients should discuss any health conditions or previous surgeries with their surgeon. Patients should also be aware that a tummy tuck can cause significant pain.
The cost of a tummy tuck
The costs of a tummy tuck vary depending on the surgeon and where you have the surgery. Plastic surgeons with more experience will charge more for the surgery. Additionally, you’ll have to pay more for anesthesia, which can increase the overall cost. Be sure to find a board-certified anesthesiologist or CRNA when choosing a surgeon. Be aware that non-certified nurses and medical assistants can administer anesthetics, so be sure to find someone who is qualified and experienced.
Before and after pictures of a tummy tuck
Before and after pictures of a tumescent procedure can be helpful for patients planning to have the procedure. Patients can choose to see the results of the procedure in real life, or view before and after photos online to gain more information. Although the procedure does not replace weight loss or exercise, it can make the abdominal area look flatter and firmer. The procedure also helps patients regain confidence and self-esteem.
