Since a Miami tummy tuck procedure requires general anesthesia, there are the same potential risks that any general anesthesia surgeries have. There are risks to any health procedures, treatments or medications including over-the-counter medications like aspirin and Tylenol. An experienced anesthesiologist reviews these concerns along with the surgeon prior to any operation. This greatly diminishes these uncommon potential occurrences. There are some standard tummy tuck recovery potential risks that can be avoided if the patients follow their discharge instructions properly.
Mommy Makeover Miami Tummy Tuck Surgery
All of these prospective tummy tuck recovery and procedure concerns will be thoroughly outlined and discussed when each patient comes into our Miami Plastic Surgery office for their mandatory initial consultation appointment with the surgeon. Dr. Max Polo is well respected by his peers and beloved by his many satisfied patients. He is sought out often for his famed “Mommy Makeover” procedures. Typically, moms want a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy-tuck surgery to get back their curves at the middle not seen since before they became pregnant. Dr. Max Polo determines an individualized Mommy Makeover plan of action that can include breast lifts and augmentation procedures, targeted liposuction and/or noninvasive or minimally invasive body sculpting treatments, face lift or eye area lift procedures and more.
Before and After Pictures Before Getting A Tummy Tuck
Each patient contemplating an abdominoplasty procedure will look at tummy tuck before and after pictures to gain a more realistic surgical expectation. Individuals that have already underwent a tummy tuck at Miami Plastic Surgery center have been more than pleased with their gorgeous new shapes. Wound infections following tummy tucks are prevented by close monitoring and care of the surgical site with antibiotic treatment if needed.
Things To Avoid After Surgery
Other common tummy tuck procedure recovery discharge instructions include avoiding heavy lifting using the abdominal muscles until the site has healed. Patients are seen for follow up appointments to ensure that there are no complications, and most patients do well through the healing process. Surgical site discomfort is relieved with mild medications, avoidance of tight waistbands, keeping area clean and dry and maintaining a healthy diet. Patients are also instructed to avoid smoking that can affect how the body heals. Patients that have had a mini type tummy tuck have less extensive incisions, and both mini and full tummy-tuck operations have just above pubic area incision sites that are hidden with even bikini bottoms.
