When deciding on a tummy tuck, there are a lot of things you will have to think through before having the surgery. Two of the most important things is where your surgery is going to be performed, and who is going to do it. Here’s some advice.
It can be difficult to choose the right hospital for your abdominoplasty. There are many clinics around the country, and new ones are continuously appearing. Every medical procedure always entails a risk, and an abdominoplasty is a quite large and complex surgery. This requires a safe and professional process, performed by a trustworthy hospital.
Do your research before deciding on a certain clinic – because the cheapest or most popular one might not always be the best choice for you. Look into how long the clinic have been in existence and if they have high safety records. When in consultation, ask where the surgery is going to be performed, and what you can expect from it.

Make sure the surgeon’s qualified
Equally important as to make sure you will have your tummy tuck in a trustworthy hospital, you have to make sure that your surgery is performed by a accredited surgeon. Anyone can call him or herself a cosmetic or aesthetic surgeon – so you need to make sure that they are fully certified. Ask if they are a member of the IAPS (the Irish Association of Plastic Surgeon) to know if they have the appropriate experience and specialist education for performing tummy tucks.
An abdominoplasty is an important procedure, and you will have to invest both a lot of time and money into it. Therefore, it’s necessary to know that you will be treated by professionals and that you are fully prepared before making your decision.
