Who Is A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?

If you have an excess amount of fat in the lower abdominal area, you are healthy, a non-smoker and have realistic expectations – let’s talk about a tummy tuck.

As with every surgery, your safety and well-being are paramount, but especially when you are talking about having elective surgery. There are things you should think about before your tummy tuck procedure, to assure that you will have the best results possible.

Tummy Tuck Considerations

• You have a healthy heart, lung, and kidneys
• You should have no issues with nutrition or connective tissue disorders
• No keloid (over scarring) or hypertrophic scars (thick scarring)
• Have an appropriate body type

How Tummy Tucks Differ From Mommy Makeovers

The tummy tuck is very often a part of a mommy makeover, which is done after pregnancy. It removes the excess fat from the lower abdomen after the woman’s weight has stabilized after childbirth. Those best suited for mommy makeovers are finished having children and have increased skin elasticity.

Should you be interested in a mommy makeover, there are four procedures that can be included in the mommy makeover.

Procedures In A Mommy Makeover

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
Breast lift
Breast augmentation

Any one or all of these can be added to your surgery.
