Body Procedure

Post Operative Question Answer

Are there any potential complications or risks associated with an abdominoplasty that I should be aware of? What are the signs that something might be wrong, and what should I do if I suspect a complication?

While abdominoplasty is generally safe, like any surgical procedure, it carries some risks. Potential complications include infection, bleeding, blood clots, seroma formation, poor wound healing, scarring, asymmetry, and changes in sensation. It is important to monitor for signs such as excessive pain, severe swelling, redness, warmth, pus, or foul odor at the incision site, persistent fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, leg swelling, or any other concerning symptoms. If you suspect a complication, it is crucial to contact your surgeon immediately.
