During a tummy tuck surgery in Bathinda, an incision is made along the lower abdomen, typically from hip to hip.

As such there is no restriction on diet, but to achieve better result and sound recovery, we recommend high protein, low fat and low carbohydrate diet. Please watch your weight. Try to stay 1-3 pounds lighter than your pre-surgical weight.

 Tummy Tuck Surgery Specific Complications:

  • Bleeding: it is very rare as, blunt cannula is used for liposuction
  • Infection: Surgical site infection is rare but possible. A severe skin infection may be life-threatening.
  • Fluid accumulation: Accumulation of fluid is called a seroma. Small seroma gets absorbed by itself. This fluid may need to be drained with a needle. Open drainage technique reduces seroma
  •  Wound healing problem; when skin is suture too tight or fat layer is thick, or patient is a smoker, wound healing problem can take place., which delays recovery may need revision surgery.
  • Contour irregularities: Skin may look irregular, bumpy, or wavy due to uneven fat removal, poor healing, or thinly stretched skin. These changes may be permanent. Even difficult to reduce with revision
  • Spot/ pigmentations: Skin may appear spotted, but rarely does it become permanent.
  • Numbness: One may have temporary or permanent numbness in the operative area.
  • Hyperesthesia: due to temporary nerve irritation is also possible.
  • Fat embolism: Again very rare, can happen with mega liposuction. Broken fat may travel through the blood and gather in the lungs or to the brain. A fat embolism is a medical emergency.
  • Kidney and heart problems: As a large quantity of fluid is injected and suctioned out as it can cause potentially life-threatening kidney, heart, or lungs problem.
  • Lidocaine toxicity: Lidocaine is an anesthetic drug in infiltration fluid. Although it is safe, in a rare circumstance, lidocaine toxicity can occur, causing serious heart and central nervous system problems.
  • Internal puncture: It is extremely rare. A cannula can go too deep, may puncture an internal organ. This may require emergency surgical repair.

Anaesthesia related complications:

Small reaction to major reaction or fluid imbalance can happen. And it is rarest rare death can happen.
