Abdominoplasty is the procedure which flattens your abdomen by removing the extra fat and tightening the muscles on the abdominal wall. The surgical procedure is called a tummy tuck.

The procedure is considered a major surgery and it is good if you educate yourself on how you can analyze your own situation before you come up with the decision of getting a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck has to be the last resort for people who may have exhausted other measures, the procedure should not be used as an alternative to weight loss.

The right candidate to get abdominoplasty

Tummy tuck can be done on women and men as far as they are in good health and they have stable weight. It is good also for candidates who do not smoke.

The tummy tuck is different from liposuction. The cosmetic surgery can be used for removing fat deposits but the surgeon can choose to do liposuction in combination as a part of the tummy tuck procedure. Women who suffer from stretched skin and muscle because of pregnancy will find that this procedure is more useful when it comes to tightening up the muscle and reducing the skin. The tummy tuck is an alternative for those who had been overweight and after losing weight, they continue to suffer from loose skin and fat deposits at the abdominal area.  

Who is not a right candidate for abdominoplasty?

You should not get the procedure if

  • You want to have more children and get it only when you are sure you have completed your family.  
  • If you have lost some weight but you plan to lose even more weight. Wait until you are sure that your weight has been stabilized before you can get the procedure done.
  • You do not want scars. You have to keep in mind that the tummy tuck may cause scars so if you do not want scars then you should not get the procedure done.

Asking a board-certified doctor, such as Dr. Wallach, everything you want to know before the procedure and he will also do a physical examination to ensure that you can get the procedure done with the least amount of risk.
