Who is a Candidate for Abdominoplasty
Individuals need not be overweight to benefit from abdominoplasty. The belly bulge from weakened abdominal muscles that may come with aging, after pregnancy, from prior surgery or just plain heredity can be flattened and tightened with a tummy tuck. Persons with excess sagging skin after a large weight loss can also regain a firmer, more youthful contour. Abdominoplasty is best deferred in women who are planning further pregnancies until childbearing is no longer considered.
