Am I a good candidate for surgery for tummy tuck?
If you are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise, a tummy tuck could be right for you. The surgery is particularly helpful to women whose pregnancies have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal.
In older clients a loss of skin elasticity often comes with slight obesity. This can also be improved. Clients who intend to lose a lot of weight should clearly do so before the surgery.
Women who plan further pregnancies should also wait, as vertical abdominal muscles tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy. If you have bad scarring from previous abdominal surgery, your botonics surgeon may also recommend against abdominoplasty since your scars could be unusually prominent.
Abdominoplasty can enhance your appearance and so increase your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily achieve your ideal. So, before you decide on surgery, discuss everything frankly with your botonics surgeon to make sure you are being realistic.
