MovingAbdominoplasty – Tummy Tucks Complications and Risks

November 22, 2018by was73100

So you think of abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) what are the possible complications of Abdominoplasty (tummy tucks)?? Are they easily avoided I’m not telling you these complications to make you afraid of abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) but because technically I always prefer the patient be aware of his surgery complications and steps.

Here is the list of possible complications of Abdominoplasty (tummy tucks)

Anesthesia reaction:

This is reaction during surgery because of anesthesia

Belly button death:

More Common in Smokers Occurs Due to failure of healing of 2 surgical scars

Bleeding

Hematoma (risk is 3-4%)

Collections of blood

Infection (risk is less than 1 %)

Not common as surgeries are done in septic conditions

Keloid:

Heavy scar

Puckered skin

Skin Lesions in which skin is wrinkled

Reactions to medications

Seroma

Skin irregularities

Skin necrosis or skin death (more likely with smokers)

Slow healing

Suture Rupture

Swelling

Visible scar

Serious complications after an abdominoplasty are uncommon. However, there are risks with any surgery and specific complications associated with this procedure.

Complications such as infection and blood clots are rare, but can occur. Infection can be treated with drainage and antibiotics, but will prolong your recovery. You can minimize the risk of blood clots by moving around as soon after the surgery as possible (immobility allows blood to pool and create a clot which can travel to the lungs, heart or brain causing a pulmonary embolism, heart attack or stroke).

If wound problems develop, it may delay healing for several weeks or even months. Areas of skin may die and slough off (this complication is more common among smokers). This will result in delayed healing and may require a skin graft. Although rare, it is possible for fat to liquefy and drain through the incision. Additional surgery may also be necessary.

One of the more common problems after an abdominoplasty is collection of fluid under the skin after the drains have been removed. Your surgeon can aspirate the fluid with a needle. The drainage stops within a month and will not affect the final results.

Scars

Surgical scars -as complication of Abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) – are permanent. There will be a long scar extending from hip to hip. However, the incisions are usually placed below the swimsuit line so they will not normally be in view. Your scars may actually worsen during the first three to six months as it heals, but this is normal. It normally takes 9 months to a year before scars flatten out and lighten in color.
