Since many CosmeSurge® Centers are located in the Middle East where women tend to have multiple children, tummy tuck surgery is the second most common operation we perform after liposuction.
The best candidates for tummy tucks or abdominoplasty are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin. A protruding abdomen can be a cause of distress for men and women alike. The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, weak abdominal muscles are annoyed by loose skin that has been over-stretched and no longer responds 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. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy.
Patients that have stabilized in their weight loss program or who feel they are at their ideal weight are the best candidates for a tummy tuck. Many patients combine their tummy tuck with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
