In brief: Many.

There are many risks associated with tummy tuck surgery.
These include the risk of infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, intra-abdominal injury, abdominal wall or umbilical tissue necrosis, wound healing problems, deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and even death. During the consultation process, you will likely hear/read about additional risk/potential complications. Best wishes.

In brief: Yes, but...

No more than any other operation.
Go to a board certified plastic surgeon at an accredited facility and you should be fine.
