Is it fatal?


Answer by  vietnamgirls (1177)

Complications from tummy tucks are rare, however some complications include blood clots, infection, reactions to anesthesia and medications.Often a stomach drain is used to eliminate fluid and chance of infection.


Answer by  PHOAT (645)

The most common complication is infection. With the amount of stitches that the procudure requires, there is always a risk. You will be given medications for this but it's important to follow all post surgery instructions because infections can be life threatening in untreated. Another complication is the potential for scarring.


Answer by  pambam (892)

All surgeries carry risk and a tummy tuck is included in that.Because the operation is usually done under general anaesthesia, the patient can have an allergic or poor reaction to anesthesia. In all surgeries, there is a risk or embolism, or blood clots in the legs or lungs. All surgery increases the risk of heart or lung issues as well.


Answer by  Chiyamaka (846)

Many complications include failure to stitch properly. Others include the heart stopping during the procedure due to possible loss of blood. These are all fatal, this is why tummy tucks are discouraged by doctors.
