Specific risks that may be seen after abdominal stretch surgery include wound infection, blood or body fluid accumulation in the operating room, blood clot discharge, and bad wound healing. Wound infection can be eliminated by drainage and antibiotic use. Surgical blood or body fluid accumulation is rarely seen due to the drains usually placed in the surgery, but when necessary, it is removed by a second intervention. Blood clotting (embolism) is a complication that can be seen in elderly patients, may cause life-threatening complications and may be seen after every operation. This risk is usually eliminated by using a varicose vein and using some medicines, usually by lifting and walking the patient early on after the tummy tuck operation. Bad wound healing usually results in marked traces. Sometimes this may suggest a second intervention to go through these bad tracks. People with smokers and those with systemic disease that impairs wound healing (such as diabetes) are at greater risk of bad wound healing.
