The ideal patient for an abdominoplasty is an individual who has lost weight down to the expected normal and who has weak abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat. A small percentage of people having a tummy tuck will develop a collection of blood in the wound within the first few days of surgery. Another common complication after tummy tuck is bleeding and infection. If you are considering a tummy tuck, make sure you find a surgeon who is board certified and get recommendation from your regular doctor.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is one form of body contouring which has become popular over the last several years. This is a procedure used to remove excess wrinkled skin and fatty tissue from the mid and lower abdomen. The tummy tuck can accomplish near miracles in terms of removing excess skin and tightening the inner girdle of cartilage, called fascia, that supports the abdomen. Tummy tucks are often performed in conjunction with liposuction.
