12 Jun Every Age is the Right Age for a Tummy Tuck
If you’ve been thinking about a tummy tuck, the wait is over. If you are a woman and are finished having biological children, you’re at the perfect age for a tummy tuck and John Park MD Plastic Surgery will ensure you get the results of your dreams. However, also bear in mind that women aren’t the only great candidates for tummy tucks. Men can also be ideal tummy tuck candidates.
Most young women who opt for a tummy tuck do so after giving birth. Not only does a tummy tuck remove excess skin that is very common after childbirth, but it also helps in tightening the abdominal muscles that can become lax. Pregnancy understandably puts a strain on those muscles, and a tummy tuck is a fast and permanent means to re-tighten these core muscles.
Women and men of any age who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time are also potential tummy tuck candidates. Many people don’t realize that big weight fluctuations can permanently stretch the belly skin. Diet and exercise can leave people with loose skin, and a tummy tuck can make this problem disappear. It’s a milestone procedure for many patients who undergo weight loss surgery, but it can be a well-earned treat for anyone who has reached their goal weight.
Weight fluctuations and pregnancy aren’t the only causes of excess belly skin. Genetics also plays a role. Everyone has varying amounts of collagen and elastin in their skin, and these two elements are responsible for taut, supple skin. If you have stubborn excess skin that you want to get rid of, a tummy tuck might be the answer for you.

Tummy tuck incisions are kept below the underwear and swimsuit line, so they are easy to hide, and you’ll be able to show off your new body and taut tummy easily. As an added bonus, tummy tucks may also get rid of some stretch marks in the process. Stretch marks on the belly are very common in both men and women, and removing excess skin will simultaneously remove some of the stretch marks.
