Tummy tuck combined with other procedures

Surgery called Tummy tuck is a surgery to correct sagging of the abdominal skin and subcutaneous tissue, which is associated with extreme weight loss from postpartum and obesity. Because it is a relatively large-scale operation, it is a treatment to be done after hospitalized.

At the same time as the tummy tuck, there are occasionally those who wish to perform liposuction surgery in the abdomen or correct the drooping of the breasts. However, we do not recommend doing two or more such operations together (compound surgery). The reason is that the risk of complications increases significantly.

It has been reported in the United States that necrosis of the tissues of the abdominal wall is likely to occur when Tummy tuck and liposuction are performed at the same time. In addition, when Tummy tuck and breast surgery are performed together, the operation time also becomes longer, the rate of causing deep vein thrombosis increases, water accumulates subcutaneously also in the site of tummy tuck (seroma), the healing of wounds said to be poor.

If you wish to do some of these surgeries, we recommend that you consider the next operation after a period of recovery from each surgery for safety.
