Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
I Am Having a Spinal Fusion in March, is It Safe to Have a Tummy Tuck 2 Months Prior?
I am scheduled to have a thoraco-lumbar fusion in the beginning of March. Meanwhile, I would like to have lipo assisted fat transfer to the buttocks with a tummy tuck. 1) is this enough time to heal? 2) will the 'growing' i do from the fusion (1 - 1 1/2 inches) affect the tummy tuck 3) is it enough time for the 'grafting' to heal/take in the buttocks area? i am afraid to wait until after because I won't be able to lie on my back in order to heal the buttocks fat grafting .
