Tummy tucks are becoming more and more common. Post pregnancy, weight loss and the natural ageing process can all cause the abdominal muscles and the skin on the tummy to become weak and loose, which in turn can mean that no amount of exercise will smooth or tighten the area.
Also known as: Abdominoplasty
Potential Risk of Negligence
Like all surgical procedures the tummy tuck does carry the possibility of complication. A surgeon should discuss these with a patient, making sure he or she understands the risks involved. These might include infection of the wound, as well as rare complications such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolus and necrosis of the skin and fat.

Whilst there are always risks with tummy tuck surgery if you can prove that your cosmetic surgeon has caused unnecessary injury due to negligence then you could potentially have a claim for medical negligence.
