Body | Dehiscence or Wound Separation

During a tummy tuck, your surgeon will create an incision in your skin and the underlying structures so they can remove excess tissue and sculpt a firm and flat abdomen. Once the procedure is complete, the incision will be closed with sutures or staples, and you’ll be sent home to recover. With wound dehiscence or separation, the edges of the incision pull apart before the area is completely healed. It’s a serious complication that requires immediate medical attention – but it’s also one that can be avoided with proper care from your surgeon.
