If you’ve been considering a tummy tuck but aren’t sure if it’s the right procedure for you and want to learn more, here are a few questions to ask your plastic surgeon.
Questions to ask during your tummy tuck consultation with a plastic surgeon
- Is this procedure right for me? You should aim to find the right procedure for you before moving forward. You may go into a consultation thinking that one procedure is right and find out there are other options that are better suited to your goals.
- What type of tummy tuck would benefit me? There are different types of tummy tucks that are used to treat different cases. Some patients only need a mini tummy tuck to achieve their desired look while others require a more advanced procedure such as the full tummy tuck.
- Should I undergo additional procedures? Some patients wish to treat more than one area. For example, many mothers wish to undergo a tummy tuck to achieve their pre-baby tummy and may also want to improve the look of their breasts through a lift or augmentation. We can discuss your goals and additional procedures that may benefit you in helping to achieve your ultimate goals.
- What is the recovery period like? Every patient heals differently but the average recovery time is 2-3 weeks for a tummy tuck. Depending on the type of tummy tuck you choose and any additional procedures your recovery time may vary.
