Outside of needing bed rest for a few days and avoiding lifting for a few weeks, most people get back to normal quickly. However, in a few rare cases, tummy tuck surgery can lead to complications that require a bit of care. Some people develop infections or have a hard time getting the wound to heal. With abdominoplasty, there's also the risk of excessive scarring, bleeding, or blood clots. Your doctor should go over these risks with you before the surgery. You want to find a tummy tuck expert that can minimize these risks. How do you get ready for tummy tuck surgery? Once you decide upon the tummy tuck expert, you should set up a consultation appointment. The doctor should go over why you want to go through with the surgery, what your expectations are, and what is your desired outcome. Make sure they're also aware of all medical conditions, current medications, and any previous surgeries you've had. The doctor will also assess your general health and may take pictures for the record. The doctor should also review potential complications and risks of the abdominoplasty. Just remember that a tummy tuck is still a major surgical procedure. What is involved with tummy tuck surgery? During the abdominoplasty, you will be under some form of sedation. The doctor will take an incision along the line between the pubic bone and the navel. Another incision may be necessary around the navel if you need upper abdomen work. During the tummy tuck, the doctor will remove excess skin, extra fat, and close any muscle damage. At the end of the procedure, the tummy tuck expert will close at the incisions. The rest is recovery.
