Contraindications Of Abdominoplasty

Contraindications Of Abdominoplasty


The tummy tuck procedure, also called an abdominoplasty in the medical world, is performed with the purpose of enhancing the appearance of the tummy by making it flat and firm. Patients interested in undergoing the procedure are both men and women of all ages, but mostly we are talking about women who have birth one or multiple times and patients who have undergone a weight loss regimen.

During pregnancy, the tummy and the breasts are parts of the body most affected by the changes that occur naturally during this time. The abdominal wall muscles can also get distended and appear weak or loose. The correction of this condition can be done only by using a surgical method.

When it comes to weight loss programs, there are many patients who lose a considerable amount of weight and then notice that their body doesn’t look as expected and that the shape is still not very attractive. This happens because the skin that is once overly stretched can’t get back to the initial shape after weight loss occurs. Once again, we need plastic surgery to correct this as no amount of diet or physical exercise will help the skin retract on the new contours of the body.

The tummy tuck procedure has a high satisfaction rate and many patients can benefit from it. However, as is the case with any other surgical procedure, there are contraindications to it.

The tummy tuck is usually performed under general anesthesia, so if you’ve had previous negative reactions to anesthesia, this might be a contraindication for the procedure. Discuss this in detail with the plastic surgeon and the anesthetist. Also, the risks entailed by general anesthesia are more common to occur when patients have a history of obesity.

Severe health conditions such as heart, lung and blood disorders can be contraindications for surgery. It is important for the patient not to be on a blood thinning medication as this can cause excessive bleeding or trigger significant complications after the procedure. Diabetes is no longer a contraindication for the tummy tuck as an experienced plastic surgeon will be able to prepare and monitor the patient attentively throughout the procedure and avoid complications.

Pregnancy or infections in the body are other contraindications of the procedure. No cosmetic procedures should be performed on pregnant women, so make sure to take a pregnancy test before scheduling your procedure. At the same time, infections in the body make you an ineligible candidate for the procedure. The tummy tuck can be rescheduled when you have healed and you are in good health. This is why it is important to avoid getting sick before surgery. Something as simple and common as a cold can cause a delay in performing a tummy tuck.

To find out all the contraindications to the procedure and how this affects your particular case, make sure to discuss this issue in detail with your plastic surgeon.
