Tummy tuck procedures are performed to get a firm abdominal. An overweight person is mostly associated with excess weight in the abdominal area. Depending on the cases, after a massive melt-out job, the abdominal area may have an excess skin problem. A tummy tuck involves both liposuction and excess skin removal procedures. Unlike the procedures of the past, today’s tummy tuck procedures are quite safe and promising. However, since it’s still an invasive medical procedure, possible side effects should always be taken into consideration. So, how dangerous is a tummy tuck? What are the possible risks? Is there a risk of death? Let’s try to give some proper answers to these questions in our post.
If you want to undergo a cosmetic procedure like a tummy tuck, you need to be eligible for it first. There are a couple of eligibility requirements for a tummy tuck but the most important one is generally associated with the skin removal procedure. If you have elastic skin, you are so likely to be eligible for a tummy tuck.
Local and general anesthetics are administered to the patients during a tummy tuck procedure. However, if you have a weak heart, you may suffer from terrible complications like a heart attack or failure after the administration of the anesthetic. This is the most dangerous part which may even result in death.
If you have diabetes, you would also risk your life after a possible tummy tuck procedure. People with diabetes should stay away from cosmetic procedures like a tummy tuck.
If you are considered eligible for both lipo and skin removal procedures, then you’re eligible for a tummy tuck as well. Recovery from tummy tuck does not take too long but can be a real hardship if you move your body too much. The more you take rest, the faster and better healing you will get during the recovery.
