Tummy Tuck- What does it involve?
|Tummy tuck- Step by step|
Talking about safety first, obese people run a much higher risk of complications like Pulmonary embolism, wound healing problems, infections, blood clots etc. post-surgery. The surgery time is also much longer if you are significantly overweight and need extensive surgery; thereby lengthening the anesthesia time and putting you at risk. Secondly, if there is too much bulk, it is difficult to get rid of it in a single sitting, thereby greatly affecting the aesthetic outcome of surgery.
