Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Treatment Errors

An abdominoplasty is usually carried out to remove excess fat or skin from the stomach area, as well as to tighten stretched abdominal muscles. As with all surgical procedures risks involved during the procedure may be minor as well as life threatening. However, in some circumstances the high level of care which is required may fall below what is expected causing you or a loved one to suffer from additional complications and distress.

Types of Abdominoplasty Treatment Errors

Although there are several well recognised complications in this type of surgery, certain surgical errors may arise during and after surgery which can constitute potential medical negligence. Such errors include:  

  • Failure to treat an infection following surgery
  • Delayed healing and gathering of fluid
  • Damage to surrounding organs during surgery
  • Skin or fat necrosis due to a delay in diagnosis and treatment
  • Nerve damage/Numbness caused during surgery
  • Removal of too much skin
  • Excessive scarring due to incorrect surgical technique
  • Disfigurement as a result of incorrect surgical technique
  • Poor positioning or loss of belly button
  • And other abdominoplasty treatment errors 

If you or a loved one has been affected by an abdominoplasty treatment error which has caused a serious complication or resulted in the need for further surgery, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
