For patients who would like to tighten and tone the abdominal area, a tummy tuck procedure can be a highly effective cosmetic procedure. By removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz can give patients the slimmer tummy they desire. The years of training and experience that Dr. Hurwitz possesses have given him superior surgical skill. This has resulted in very high success rates and low rates of complication at his plastic surgery practice. While it is highly unlikely that patients will experience any complications following tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Hurwitz, our Pittsburgh patients should expect tummy tuck side effects. These side effects are a normal part of the healing process and should not be cause for alarm.
Prior to surgery, Dr. Hurwitz discusses with his patients the most common side effects of tummy tuck surgery. Below is a brief description of these common side effects of tummy tuck surgery as well as the likely duration for each side effect:
Following tummy tuck surgery, patients can expect a lengthy recovery that includes several side effects. However, it is important to remember that these side effects are temporary and will soon disappear, leaving patients with the beautiful, permanent results of surgery. If you are interested in achieving the slimmer waistline you desire, schedule an appointment with Dr. Dennis Hurwitz to learn more about tummy tuck surgery. We look forward to hearing from you!
