The stomach and hips are a major problem area for women as they are an area where fat is usually stored first.

Abdominoplasty is a very popular form of plastic surgery and helps to reduce layers of fat that have gathered around the stomach and abdomen area. This surgery is particularly popular with women after they have gone through a pregnancy and put on a great deal of additional weight. Surgery is quick and easy alternative to spending many hours at the gym. 

As with any form of surgery, abdominoplasty can be dangerous if not carried out in a safe environment and you need to be aware of the risks before the surgery is undertaken. If you feel that you have not been fully informed about the potential risks, or that your surgeon has been negligent towards you during the procedure you could be eligible for a compensation claim.  

What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty or a “tummy tuck” as it is commonly known, is the surgical procedure which removes excess skin and fat from your abdominal region. The level of abdominoplasty that you will require will depend on how much excess fat you wish to remove and how far your skin has stretched. Once the excess has been removed the remaining skin is stretched over the area to give a firm appeal. 

Full recovery from this type of surgery can take up to six months and for the first few weeks the patient should undertake serious recovery which includes not working or doing anything too strenuous. Nicotine should also be avoided during this period. 

What injuries could I receive from Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty does bring with it a number of potential dangers and some of these include:

  • Infection – If the wound is not properly cleaned or stitched it could become infected
  • Blood clots
  • Necrosis – If the skin is not properly reconnected it could die and have to be replaced by grafting
  • Cardiac complications.
