Tummy tuck Lipo complications

Having a body mass index (BMI) above 35 increases the risk of surgical complications. To avoid having complications, it is important for the patient to have a normal weight prior to the surgery. This is to prevent the person from having complications such as seroma, infection, slow wound healing and many more. Once a tummy tuck is done, the surgeon performs an abdominal incision and it is continued toward the midline where the abdominal wall is tightened, the excess skin is removed and lastly, the incision is closed through multiple-layer sutures.

The importance of losing weight before the surgery is that the blood supply to the abdomen comes from the top in case a lower abdominal incision is performed. A dual blood supply comes from the bottom and top before the surgery is conducted. The blood supply comes from the bottom part is then essentially compromised. Be reminded that when patients are overweight, perfusion is diminished. This is the primary reason why overweight patients who have undergone a tummy tuck experience a higher chance of slow wound healing.

The belly button is another thing to consider. The belly button elongates when the person gains weight since it is attached to the abdominal wall. The fatter you are, the longer it gets, thus, causing problems with wound healing. To give you a clearer picture, the belly button acts as a cylinder which extends from the level of the abdominal wall. The more weight you gain, the longer the belly button gets. The longer the belly button you have, the less blood will reach your belly button once a tummy tuck is performed and the belly button is detached. This explains why there is a higher risk of losing the belly button and having wound healing problems around it when you are overweight.
