When Does Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Negligence Occur?

Abdominoplasty is the medical name for what is commonly known as a tummy tuck, a surgical procedure, which erases surplus skin and fat around the abdomen area to attain a flatter, more firm stomach. It is a cosmetic procedure that patients chooses to undergo for a variety of causes – a desire to shift weight gained during pregnancy or removal of excess skin after substantial weight loss.

Cosmetic surgeons have a significant responsibility to ensure that all patients are completely informed of the risks involved with the abdominoplasty surgical procedures beforehand. Any surgeon who does not fulfil this duty of care is failing his patient that may result in a medical negligence claim. Damaging consequences of an abdominoplasty can include infections, blood lumps and blockage, along with other complex health deteriorating problems such as skin necrosis, which may further affect a patient’s heart and lungs. If skin necrosis does occur, additional surgical treatment is necessary in order to start the healing and remedial process. Patients should also be made aware of the danger of developing a seroma – a build-up of fluid beneath the skin that can be surgically removed to stop other health complications from arising. Whatever the cause, if you’re surgery didn’t go as intended, and you may have experienced unnecessary pain as a result, it can be concluded that you’ve suffered on the hands of a surgeon or other care staff, which may amount to medical negligence.
