What is the Mortality Rate for a Tummy Tuck with Breast Augmentation and Lift?

I am really considering a mommy makeover, but I have a friend who knows of 2 people who have died from a tummy tuck....it was over 10 years ago. Has the risk went down as technology improves? How do you go about finding your surgeons complication rates?

Mortality from surgery

I think that in general, tummy tucks are safe provided that the patiens is healthy. I make sure that all patients are carefully screened and if necessary have them obtain medical clearance from their doctor.
