Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
I'm a Kidney Transplant Recipient. Can I Have A Tummy Tuck?
I'm a kidney transplant recipient. I recieved the transplant over 6 years ago and have been very healthy since then. I am wondering if it would be ok to have a tummy tuck done? My creatinine has remained at a 8-9 all these years and I am currently on only 1 immunosuppression medication and doctors who I see say this kidney was my exact match! I am very lucky. I try to take good care of myself so I'm hoping a tummy tuck would help me look better too.
Yes, you can have a tummy tuck but you will be at increased risk for complications compared to the general population.
