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

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.
Longer surgery worst pronostics
if the patient completelly fullfill the whole requirements, analsiis ok, age ,seize and weight ok
any smokeer,any hypertension, any cardiological problem, any diabetes, it has been taken the whole cautions ( leg intermitent comprehension, termic couchon etc) and with any certified plastic surgeon then the mortality rate is cero ",
