How to prepare for a tummy tuck surgery

April 16, 2012 Comments Off

There are a number of people who feel as though a tummy tuck will be the only way to get the stomach they are looking for.

The tummy tuck procedure could be the perfect solution for those who feel their abdomen protrudes or is loose and sagging a bit, which could develop from pregnancy, aging or significant fluctuations in weight. However, before a patient decides this is the surgery for them, they should make sure they are completely informed with everything they need to know before going under the knife.

Before the surgery, patients may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation and to stop smoking well before the date of the procedure. Additionally, certain medications the person takes may be adjusted and patients may be advised to steer clear of aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs before the day of the surgery.

The surgeon who perform the procedure will inform each individual about what they need to do the day of the surgery as well as what post-operative care they should expect.
