Having a “Christmas tree” tummy tuck may sound festive, but in reality, it’s anything but. Botched surgeries can happen, unfortunately, but that doesn’t mean that it has to happen to you. Follow these tips so that you don’t end up looking like anything other than your best, beautiful self.

Always, Always, Always Check the Credentials

Not doing your homework when searching for a qualified cosmetic or plastic surgeon to do your tummy tuck is a big, huge mistake. It’s most likely the most important thing you can do to make sure that your surgery is going to be done safely and properly. Knowing that you’re in good hands with a board-certified surgeon will help keep you nice and calm going into the tummy tuck surgery.

Do What Your Doctor Tells You

Ask to take a look at before and after photos of your surgeon’s previous work to get an idea of your potential outcome.

  

Everyone recovers at different speeds, so don’t rush your healing process. Your plastic surgeon will likely send you home with a compression garment to wear for about 6 weeks after your tummy tuck. This will help reduce swelling and fluid buildup to minimize the risk of complications and help you feel better. By about 3 months after your tummy tuck, you should see a noticeable improvement in swelling, meaning that your final results are beginning to take shape.

Don’t Base Your Decision to Have a Tummy Tuck on Price

You get what you pay for. Especially when it comes to invasive medical procedures such as a tummy tuck. Reputable surgeons will only be able to give you a rough estimate of the cost until you are seen and examined during your initial consultation. Don’t get swept up in bargain shopping for the best deal. If you happen to find online coupons or advertisements for surgical sales, don’t fall for it. Instead, please refer to the first tip above and double check those credentials.
