Medina's Tip of the day!
It is safe to perform abdominal liposuction with a tummy tuck at the same time?
The risk of skin necrosis while performing a tummy increases significantly when liposuction is performed in the whole abdomen at the same time with a tummy tuck, this is because of the irrigation or oxygen that reaches the skin is already decreased by vessels cut in the process and if we add to this trauma and sweeping liposuction producing skin, and possible damage to microvascular structures that the risk of this dreaded complication occurs during this, Increase in a large percentage.
Many times we do not think the consequence of our decisions when we are desperate to certain situations that overwhelm us, I always recommend them to report on the processes to be performed, have an assessment with a certified plastic surgeon and especially to listen to the advice that this can give .
Love, Dr. Medina
