Tummy tuck plastic surgery (abdominoplasty) is a proven and safe procedure, but similar to any surgery, it will involve certain risks. Therefore, the patient should choose an experienced plastic surgeon with a proven record of safe and effective results for their tummy tuck surgery.

Choosing the Right Surgeon
Patients should take time to choose a surgeon who will provide them with desirable cosmetic and medical outcomes as the results of the abdominoplasty will stay with them for years. With so many doctors offering this procedure, it may be confusing for patients to select an appropriate surgeon.
The patient should consider a surgeon who has performed many tummy tuck surgeries in the past and has a proven record of excellent results.
While many surgeons may be adept at certain procedures, they may not have much hands-on experience in performing an abdominoplasty. Such surgeons may not be an appropriate choice for patients seeking tummy tuck surgery.
While the likelihood of the development of surgical complications is low, patients should work with a surgeon with training in managing such situations. Selecting a surgeon with specialized training in managing complications lowers the risks associated with the procedure even further.
In addition, patients should also assess if the surgeon they are considering has an impeccable record. The state medical board can provide potential patients with all the relevant details they seek.
Why Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Board certified surgeons would have received a minimum number of years of plastic surgery training which acts as an automatic assurance for patients.
Surgeons who are certified by the renowned American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) usually invest in the highest quality standards and best practices, adopt cutting-edge surgical technologies and techniques, and pursue continuing education to update their skills and knowledge.
Focus on Individualization and Innovation
Each person has a unique anatomy. Therefore, it is vital for the surgeon to individualize the abdominoplasty according to the specific physical and aesthetic requirements of the patient. Patients typically experience high rates of satisfaction when the tummy tuck procedure is customized to create more complete and natural outcomes.
Plastic surgeons who focus on routinely upgrading their skills and knowledge by educating themselves on the most advanced surgical techniques and latest technologies offer their patients with excellent outcomes.
Advanced procedures offer patients the most benefit as these are generally an improvement over previous technologies. Such procedures are less painful and invasive for the patient as well as present lower risks and quicker healing times.
The credentials and certification of the plastic surgeon is an important factor when seeking a surgical procedure. An equally important aspect is the surgical venue. Abdominoplasty should ideally take place at a hospital or an accredited surgical center.
Patients should consider working with a friendly doctor who makes them feel comfortable. A patient is likely to feel more satisfied with their final abdominoplasty results if they choose a doctor that they share a good rapport with.
It is important for a patient to select a doctor who is willing to give them time, answer their questions in a comprehensive manner, and create an individualized surgical plan for them. On the other hand, it is vital to avoid a surgeon who puts pressure on the patient to undergo more treatment than they actually need or want.
