A tummy tuck – also known as abdominoplasty – is a cosmetic operation to remove excess fat and skin with a view to firming up and re-shaping the abdomen. It is often carried out when someone has been left with excess skin and fat through rapid weight loss, or after pregnancy.
If you have been given sub-standard care when undergoing a tummy tuck – for example where your surgeon has made mistakes, you were not given proper after-care, or you received insufficient warnings of risk – you may be entitled to compensation for any injuries and losses you’ve suffered as a result.

How a negligent tummy tuck might affect you
As with any type of surgery, it is normal to have discomfort, bruising and scars after the operation. But symptoms which persist beyond a few months or which are particularly painful may be signs that the procedure was not carried out correctly.
Some examples of more serious side-effects are:
- Blood clots in the lungs
- Skin loss or necrosis
- Numbness or nerve damage
- Skin discolouration or bleeding under the skin
- Blood clot in leg
