Who should consider undergoing the surgery?
The candidate for tummy tuck should be healthy men and women who have stubborn fat and excess abdominal skin. They should have stable weight and not obese. Tummy tuck is also advisable for women after pregnancy to restore their figure by removing stretch marks.
The best candidates for tummy tucks or abdominoplasty are healthy men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large stubborn fat deposit or loose excessive abdominal skin. A protruding abdomen can be a cause of distress for men and women alike.
The surgery is particularly successful to women whom had multiple pregnancies and rendered them weak abdominal muscles.Also, they are annoyed by loose skin that has been over-stretched and no longer responding to diet and exercise. For those who have experienced a massive weight loss, their only alternative to loose overhanging skin is surgery.

Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery. Besides, women expecting future pregnancies must postpone the procedure, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy.
Patients that have reached their ideal weight.
