Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Claims
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is when excess fat and skin is removed from the waist and leaves the patient with a flatter stomach. Whilst the procedure may only take a couple of hours it is usual to stay in hospital for a few days after the operation. If you feel you have been treated negligently by your cosmetic surgeon either during or after your tummy tuck then you may be able to claim for compensation.
What can go wrong with a tummy tuck/abdominoplasty?
All surgery involves some risk which your surgeon should have explained to you. Some of the things that could have gone wrong with your tummy tuck include:
- Blood clots
- Skin or fat necrosis
- Nerve damage – resulting in numbness in the abdominal region
