The best candidates for tummy tucks, or abdominoplasty as some people refer to it, are women and men who are in quite good shape but are not comfortable with the presence of large fatty deposit or loose abdominal skin in their stomach areas.
This can be a source of distress for men or women as it can affect the shape of their bodies. The surgery is particularly beneficial for women whose abdominal muscles have weakened because of multiple pregnancies, and would like to remove overstretched loose skin that can no longer be remedied by diet and exercise alone. For individuals who have experienced massive weight loss, their best alternative to lose overhanging skin in their tummy is surgery.
If you are planning to shed a lot of weight, it is best to postpone the surgery until you have achieved your ideal weight. Women who are planning for future pregnancies are advised to wait and have the surgery after they’ve given birth, as the surgery tightens vertical muscles in the abdomen, and these may separate again during pregnancy.
There are different types of tummy tucks. Depending on each case, our specialist will assess you and give objective feedback and recommend the best course of action to ensure optimum results.
