Is Tummy Tuck Right For You?

Is Tummy Tuck Right For You?

An abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Still, it’s not something to walk into casually. Being a major operation, it is vital that you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure, so you can reap the best results from your abdominoplasty. Your initial consultation with your doctor will be where that decision is made.

Your doctor’s assessment

During your initial appointment with your plastic surgeon, it’s extremely important that you answer any questions and divulge information honestly. No hedging or exaggerating. It is also during this time that you will be assessed physically. Things that will be taken into consideration include the elasticity of your skin, laxity of your muscle, the extent of existing stretch marks, and the type of fat in your abdomen area.

The ideal tummy tuck candidate

Who is the ideal tummy tuck candidate? Generally, a patient must have extra skin in the abdomen. Muscle weakness in the area is also an indicator of a person who can benefit from the procedure. Ideally, a patient should be in  good overall physical and emotional health. Given that a tummy tuck is a major operation, it is important for the patient to be ready, in mind and in body, to face the consequences that come with the procedure.
