What are the risks associated with a Tummy Tuck?
All surgeries come with risks. Complications of a tummy tuck can include bleeding under the skin flap, infection, need for revision, skin loss, numbness which usually resolves with time, unfavorable scarring, and fluid accumulation. As with any other surgery there can be anesthetic risks. Very rarely there can be deep venous thrombosis, or cardiac and pulmonary complications.
