Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

There are numerous characteristics that will help determine who is an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. Individuals with the following characteristics tend to make the best candidates for this procedure:

You’re Not Planning On Losing a Large Amount of Weight

If you’ve lost all the weight you plan to, it’s likely that you are a good candidate for the procedure. Individuals who are not yet at their goal weight, or who still have a good bit of weight to lose, should wait until they’ve achieved their weight loss goals before getting this procedure. Otherwise, they may find that they still have extra skin in their abdominal area after losing the additional weight and that their appearance is not what they’d hoped.

You’ve Had a Baby or Lost a Great Deal of Weight

Individuals in West Palm Beach, FL and elsewhere who have gained weight during a pregnancy then lost it or those who have lost a large amount of weight may find that they have excess skin and tissue in their abdominal area. This extra tissue can be troublesome and affect their self-esteem. These people tend to be good candidates, as this surgical procedure removes excess skin and tissue, tightening and improving the appearance of the stomach and abdomen.

You Have Reasonable Expectations

Cosmetic surgery will not give you a completely perfect figure.  The procedure will take some time to heal from as well. If you are able to keep reasonable expectations about the surgery, and not expect more than can be provided, you are likely a good candidate for a tummy tuck. The procedure may help you boost your self-esteem and can improve some of the issues that you struggle with about your appearance. It is important, however, that you be in good overall health before scheduling the procedure.
