You may be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck procedure if:
• You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
• You are physically healthy with a stable weight
• You have realistic expectations
• You are a non-smoker
Tummy tuck is a highly individualized procedure and you are required to do it yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s expectations or to try to fit any kind of ideal image.
During the procedure, the surgeon will give you general anesthesia to comfort you. A full tummy tuck needs a horizontally-oriented incision in the area between the belly button and pubic hairline. The length and shape of the incision will be determined by the amount of excess skin. When the abdominal skin is lifted, underlying weakened muscles are repaired.
