Tummy Tuck

What are the potential risks and complications associated with a Tummy Tuck?
The potential risks that can occur as a result of a tummy tuck surgery include poor healing wounds, scarring, asymmetry, budges at the end of scars (commonly referred to as ‘dog ears’) and numbness.
How long does it take to get back to normal activities? 
Patients generally require 2-3 weeks of down time in order to completely heal and recover from a tummy tuck surgery. To reduce swelling, patients are also required to wear a compression garment for the first 3 weeks post-surgery.
Will it be much scarring? 
A tummy tuck scar can be long and take anywhere between months and years to fade. However, in most cases the scar will be placed along the covered bikini line so it will be mostly hidden.
Can I get pregnant after a tummy tuck? 
In short, yes, you are still able to fall pregnant after tummy tuck surgery. A tummy tuck will not prevent your stomach from further growth, whether it be a result of a pregnancy or excessive weight gain. After your pregnancy you many experience some damage to your stomach, however this varies from individual to individual.
