Are you a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
Here are 5 factors to consider...
- Your weight
Ideally, you should be within 20% of the ideal body weight for your age and height.
- Your health
Talk to your surgeon about any previous abdominal surgery, since internal or external scars may affect your candidacy.
- Your body shape
Women who’ve experienced a change to their abdomen following pregnancy are perfect for abdominoplasty.
- Your age
Tummies lose tone as we age and it becomes harder to keep weight off. Middle-aged people can benefit hugely from abdominoplasty.
- Your future plans
If you’re planning on becoming pregnant or losing weight, you should delay your tummy tuck.
