Am I a Good Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Tummy tuck patient
Tummy tuck surgery is a popular choice for individuals looking to improve their abdominal profile. Not only does the procedure remove excess fat and skin, but it also restores weakened abdominal muscles to help achieve a slimmer and tighter shape.

This body contouring solution is particularly sought-after following pregnancy and massive weight loss. However, it can be appropriate for virtually anyone seeking to correct a flabby abdomen and weak muscles.

The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are physically healthy and at or near their ideal body weight. They are also nonsmokers who have realistic expectations for what the procedure can achieve. That said, speaking with a skilled plastic surgeon is the best way to know if this surgery is right for your specific situation.

Common Reasons to Get a Tummy Tuck

There are many reasons to consider having a tummy tuck. These reasons can vary from one patient to the next. The following are just some of the motivations you may have for pursuing a tummy tuck:

  • You have excess fat in your abdominal region that does not improve with diet and exercise.
  • You are bothered by hanging or sagging skin on your midsection.
  • You are interested in the possibility of removing stretch marks on your lower abdomen.
  • You have protruding, weakened, or separated abdominal muscles.
  • You want to look better in swimwear and clothing.
  • You want your pants to fit more comfortably.
  • You are interested in having a flatter tummy and a more youthful-looking physique.
  • You are finished having children, as future pregnancy can impact your results.
  • Your weight is stable, as significant fluctuations can impact your results.
