Tummy tuck surgery is a major surgical procedure and carries the usual risks associated with any surgery. These can include infection, bleeding, reactions to anaesthesia, scarring, and seroma (fluid build-up). Additionally, there may be risks associated with the specific technique used, such as damage to nerves or blood vessels. Damage to the abdominal wall may cause long-term weakness. Asymmetry or unevenness in the appearance of the abdomen may occur. Skin necrosis (tissue death) or fat necrosis (fat death) can occur due to inadequate blood supply to the area. There is a risk of developing deep vein thrombosis, which can be fatal. If the procedure is not performed correctly, it may lead to further corrective surgeries. It is important to speak to your doctor about any concerns before undergoing a tummy tuck.
