5 Signs You’re a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck
1. You have a stomach pooch, especially between your belly button and your pelvic region. This pooch is usually a sign of abdominal damage, which can be caused by pregnancy, childbirth, or just getting older.
2. You’re doing all the right things with diet and exercise, but that tire of fat around your stomach isn’t going anywhere. That’s because diet and exercise won’t actually affect the underlying problem – damaged abdominal muscles that are essentially “pushed” out. The only way to get rid of that tummy pooch is to have a plastic surgeon put the abdominal muscles back where they belong.
3. You’ve recently lost a lot of weight, and you have excess skin hanging down over your pelvic region. A tummy tuck can help get rid of that excess skin, as well as repair any abdominal muscles that may have been damaged as a result of weight fluctuations.
