Compensation For Tummy Tuck Claims
Abdominoplasty surgery better known as the ‘Tummy Tuck’, is a procedure used to improve the shape of the tummy area (abdomen).
During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area with the aim of making the abdomen look flatter and more toned.
There are many reasons why these procedures are undertaken, but commonly these are undertaken for women who may have recently given birth, or those wishing to look slimmer.
Tummy tuck procedures can be carried out using various methods, however, the surgeon will recommend the best approach based on your goals and needs.
The surgeon has a duty to explain the risks and potential complications associated with your surgery before you proceed; if they did not, they may have been negligent if you then went on to suffered injury, complication or an undesired effect, during the operation.

- Nerve damage — numbness in abdominal region;
- Skin and/or fat necrosis (lost blood supply to tissue resulting in complications)
- Blood clots
