Is the Abdominoplasty Procedure Safe?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


Modern plastic surgery has evolved to the point where it is exceptionally safe when performed by a properly trained and educated plastic surgeon. This is true of all the procedures we offer to our Alexandria patients, including abdominoplasty.

At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, we only offer procedures that can prove their safety and effectiveness. Abdominoplasty meets both standards.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, more than 117,000 abdominoplasties were performed in the United States in 2014. The numbers across the world are obviously even more impressive.

The procedure is exceptionally common, and Dr. Chiaramonte has decades of experience helping his patients achieve a tighter, flatter, more attractive mid-section. You can trust in the procedure and in the plastic surgeon.

It's important to understand that there are risks with every surgical procedure. There's always the potential for infection after surgery. And the abdominoplasty procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, which can pose a risk to some patients.

That's why it's important to fully disclose your medical history and any allergies and to only undergo a procedure if you are in sound overall health.

If you live in the Alexandria, Virginia area and you're considering an abdominoplasty, you deserve a safe, pleasant experience. Please call Bella Cosmetic Surgery at 301-567-6767 or contact us online for a consultation.
