A tummy tuck is one of the most effective ways to completely reshape your abdomen by adjusting the skin, muscles, and fat throughout your midsection. Located in Montclair, NJ, New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is here to help all residents of Middlesex County, NJ, and the surrounding communities address cosmetic issues, such as loose folds of skin, dimpled skin, uneven muscle placement, and extra body fat along their stomach and flanks.
Who Is a Strong Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
Both men and women can enjoy the many benefits of tummy tucks, but it is important that all patients are relatively healthy and not suffering from any major medical conditions that could complicate the surgery. While this procedure is extremely safe, it is not right for everyone. The ideal tummy tuck candidate will be an individual who:
- Has not used tobacco products for at least six weeks
- Is in relatively good health
- Is not significantly overweight
As long as you are devoted to staying at a healthy weight and willing to follow your aftercare instructions, then you will most likely make a great candidate for this surgery. Many of our tummy tuck patients have lost a significant amount of weight due to lifestyle changes or multiple pregnancies. This is also an excellent procedure for older adults who are struggling with skin laxity issues.
If you are no longer happy with the appearance of your midsection due to loose folds of skin, then now is the perfect time to start exploring your professional treatment options. With just a single call to New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, residents of Middlesex County, NJ, can take that first step toward sculpting the body of their dreams.
