  • Know your surgeon, do your research

    I came across this article a few days ago and it really upset me: Bronx woman died seeking cheap tummy tuck surgery in Dominican Republic

    Patients undergoing tummy tucks (or abdominoplasty), especially those also having a breast augmentation or breast lift procedure (Mommy Makeover) can be at an increased risk for clots in the legs called Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT). These DVTs can result in a fatal condition called a Pulmonary Embolus (PE). Many believe this may have been what caused the death of the Rap Star Kanye West’s mother, Donda West, who had a tummy tuck and breast reduction in 2007. 

  • Things to know before your surgery
