Tummy Tuck Risks

At The Ottawa Clinic, our skilled plastic surgeons employ cutting-edge techniques and state-of-the-art surgical technology to ensure the utmost safety and comfort during tummy tuck procedures. We prioritize the well-being of our patients, and our experienced team provides comprehensive postoperative instructions before the scheduled surgery. This guidance equips patients with the knowledge they need to care for themselves effectively in the critical postoperative period.


Before undergoing a tummy tuck, candidates engage in a thorough consultation where the details of the procedure and any associated risks are meticulously reviewed. This process allows our patients to make informed decisions about their care and understand the potential challenges that may arise during the surgery and recovery. Our commitment to transparency and patient education is fundamental to our approach, fostering a sense of trust and confidence in those seeking our services.


Despite the advancements in tummy tuck techniques, like any surgical procedure, it carries inherent risks. While these risks are carefully discussed with patients beforehand, it’s crucial to note that complications are rare, especially when the procedure is performed by experienced professionals in a well-equipped facility. Our team is dedicated to minimizing risks and ensuring a smooth, successful tummy tuck experience for each patient.


Common risks associated with tummy tuck surgery include infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Our surgeons are adept at implementing stringent measures to prevent infections, and meticulous surgical techniques are employed to minimize bleeding. Patient safety is paramount, and the surgical team is equipped to handle any unexpected complications that may arise during the procedure.


The Ottawa Clinic’s commitment to patient safety extends beyond the operating room. Our postoperative care includes ongoing support and communication to monitor recovery progress. This comprehensive approach reflects our dedication to providing the highest standard of care throughout the entire tummy tuck experience.
