Consulting with Dr. Tavoussi about Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Tummy Tuck Surgery is one of many cosmetic surgery procedures Dr. Tavoussi performs. It is a very satisfying procedure because the results are quite dramatic and the effect it usually has on the patients is deep. You should also note that no result can be guaranteed but Dr. Tavoussi tries to achieve the closest to that if not the exact one. During the initial consultation, Dr. Tavoussi will evaluate the structure of your body considering the changes you wish to have on your tummy area and discuss the possibilities for enhancement with you.

Dr. Tavoussi will also explain some factors that can influence the procedure and results. These factors include the structure of your body bones, the shape of your body, the thickness of your skin, your age, and your expectations. Be sure to tell Dr. Tavoussi if you have had any previous surgery or an injury to your body. You should also inform Dr. Tavoussi if you have any allergies or breathing difficulties, if you are taking any medications, vitamins, or recreational drugs and if you smoke.

The success and safety of your tummy tuck procedure depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.

Be prepared to discuss:

  • Why you want the surgery
  • Your expectations and desired outcome
  • Medical conditions
  • Drug allergies and Medical Treatments
  • Current Medications
  • Vitamins, Herbal Supplements, Alcohol, Tobacco and drugs
  • Previous Surgeries

Dr. Tavoussi may also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Take photographs for your medical record
  • Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of the tummy tuck and any risks or potential complications
