Abdominoplasty is a popular and common procedure. As with most cosmetic surgical procedures, complications are unlikely when performed by a skilled and competent surgeon.
At the Aventura Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Hair Restoration in Miami, Florida, abdominoplasty patients use Venodyne® calf compression devices following surgery. These pressure cuffs fit over each lower leg from the ankle to the knee circulating every one to two minutes to reduce the pooling of blood in the lower extremities, further reducing the possibility of blood clots or emboli. Abdominoplasty also requires smokers to stop smoking long before the procedure to increase blood circulation in the skin and promote proper healing.
