The Best Candidates for a Tummy Tuck at Keystone Surgery Center

There’s actually more to a tummy tuck than helping men and women here at our Pottsville plastic surgery practice achieve a firmer and flatter stomach. Majority of our post-tummy tuck patients also reveal that they actually feel better about themselves and are more motivated to keep their weight down following surgery.

So should you have a tummy tuck, too? If you are frustrated with the appearance of your stomach even after following a rigid diet and exercise routine, a body-contouring procedure such as a tummy tuck may be ideal. However, there are still other factors to consider before finally making the decision to have the surgery with us.

By and large, you are an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck if:

  • you are near your ideal body weight but has excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area
  • you are a woman who just gave birth and is left with stretched abdominal muscles and skin; plans of future pregnancies should be ruled out as another pregnancy may compromise tummy tuck results
  • in excellent physical condition
  • has realistic expectations of the surgery
  • has quit smoking for months before surgery as smoking could significantly delay healing

The first step to figuring out whether or not you are a best candidate for a tummy tuck is to get in touch with us for an initial consultation. Apart from a tummy tuck, we offer several body-contouring options that you might want to look into depending on your cosmetic needs and preferences.
