What are the disadvantages of a tummy tuck ?
This procedure are often associated with ugly scars producing a deformed appearance of the pubic and lower abdominal areas. Although the lower abdominal area is usually covered when a bathing suit is worn, the scars are quite apparent without clothes. The removal of a large segment of lower abdominal skin requires that the belly-button be repositioned and surgically reconstructed. A surgically altered belly button often does not have a natural appearance. Tummy tucks are much more hazardous than abdominal liposuction and has a much higher risk of surgical complications such as blood clots in the lung (pulmonary embolism). In many situations, liposuction alone, provide wonderful cosmetic results and avoids the risks and additional costs connected with a tummy tuck.
