How can I minimize the risk of complications after abdominoplasty ?

When a tummy tuck is indicated, some surgeons believe it is safer to first do a liposuction and then, a few months later, do this operation. Frequently the patient is so satisfied with the primary liposuction that she no longer sees a need for another surgical intervention. Second, if the results of the procedure are not sufficient, then dividing liposuction and tummy tuck into two separate relatively light surgical procedures is usually much safer than one general surgery.
