If you are nervous about talking to someone about a tummy tuck, you shouldn't be. It is a natural feeling to be a little nervous but if you want to really change how you look and how you feel about yourself, it is a good time to consider getting a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is going to remove that excess skin on your belly and it will help control that bulge at the same time.
First, you will need to see your family doctor. Your family doctor will talk to you about reputable doctors and where you should go if you really want to have a tummy tuck done. Your family doctor will complete a physical, going over your family history, talk about your weight, and talk about any other medical conditions you may have. If you have no real medical problems and your blood pressure and heart are in good condition, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
After reviewing the results of what doctors, your family doctor recommends you can make an appointment and see the doctor who will be in charge of your tuck. You should ask questions, lots of questions. Ask where the surgery takes place. Ask how the surgery happens, and what could go wrong. Ask the doctor what he recommends for your situation if you have any specific needs. Be sure to ask the doctor for references and credentials if you have any doubts at all about the services you are going to be receiving along with your tummy tuck.
Ask the doctor if he feels you are a good candidate for this surgery, to have a tummy tuck and have the excess skin removed. Ask the doctor to give you answers, and not to beat around the bush. If you are up front and open with the doctor, you are going to get answers to your real questions and not just the answers he or she things you want to hear.
If you feel that abdominoplasty is what you need to feel good about your body and yourself, you also need to feel good about the doctor you are dealing with. In asking questions, and in conversation you will understand how the surgery occurs, what you can expect your results to be after, and what additional follow ups may be needed for healing.
