Asking a plastic surgeon before a tummy tuck is one of the best ways to reconsider your decision in the light of important facts. It is also necessary for the surgeon to have the necessary powers, experience and skills to carry out the procedure. In this video, I will talk about the questions you should ask your plastic surgeon before the intervention.
- Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
To achieve the desired aesthetic results in a more secure way, you must be a good candidate for tummy tucks. Be sure to ask your surgeon if he is a good candidate for the intervention and what makes him a good candidate for it. The surgeon will review your general health, evaluate your body and discover your goals before answering this question.
A good candidate for tummy tuck is a person who does not suffer from serious health conditions, has realistic goals and follows the procedure for the right reasons.
For example, if your main goal is to lose weight with a tummy tuck or look like a celebrity, you will not be a good candidate for this procedure. Abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure that makes your stomach younger, stronger and tones by removing sagging skin and excess fat from your abdomen, in addition to strengthening the muscles of the abdominal wall. However, this is not a method of weight loss and it will not make you look like someone else.
- What type of anesthesia will be used?
Abdominoplasty is an important operation, therefore, it is always performed under general anesthesia. This means that you will sleep during the operation. If you have good physical health, the procedure will be carried out without problems under general anesthesia.
However, there are patients who often abandon their medical information from surgeons. This often leads to anesthetic complications. For example, if you suffer from hypertension, respiratory disease or heart disease, you should inform your doctor about it so you can take steps to prevent complications during the procedure.
- How will my stomach look after a tummy tuck?
If the operation is performed by a certified physician and an experienced plastic surgeon, you can expect your abdomen to become youthful, toned, smooth and dense after a tummy tuck. These aesthetic improvements in your abdomen will also lead to a general improvement in your body profile. However, you must maintain a stable weight after the procedure to enjoy aesthetic results sustainably.
