Tummy Tuck Wound Care – Ask Your Surgeon.

Posted Jul 15 2007 12:00am

I occasionally frequent an online forum or two in which people get together to discuss issues relevant to their procedures. I have no problem with this obviously or I would not participate. Recent postings include:

A woman asking about whether her belly button scars will fade:

This woman with wound necrosis asking for wound care advice:

Another post-op wound care question:

While online discussions are fine, in new post-operative patients I wonder why these patients aren’t asking these questions of their surgeons. I think post-operative patients should be getting wound care advice from their surgeons. I would not want one of my surgical patients changing the management of a wound or a healing scar without my knowledge. This is part of what they pay for when they employ me to do their surgery.

I think I see my cosmetic patients more than other surgeons after the surgery.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
