Check if You are a Good Candidate
Of course, your surgeon will confirm your suitability for the procedure before undertaking the surgery.
Men and women thinking of getting this surgery should be in good health. It is a good idea to get a physical from your family doctor to ensure you do not have any pre-existing conditions that could heighten any surgical risks. By the way, women who have had several pregnancies find the procedure useful for reducing skin and tightening the ab muscles. Also, it can be a good solution for men and women who were obese and still have excess fat and loose skin around their belly.

Planning on getting pregnant?
If ou plan on getting pregnant in the future postpone the procedure. The surgery tightens your muscles and giving birth can undo the work done with tightening the muscles.
Want to lose a lot of weight?
Don't use the tummy tuck procedure as a weight loss alternative. It should be used as the last resort, for example, to enhance your appearance by removing the excess skin remaining from massive weight loss.
