Good reasons for doing a tummy-tuck :

Having lost a lot of weight

People loose a lot of weight by themselves -through perseverance- or because they had a bariatric operation; such as a ring around the stomach. If the skin is not very elastic, it will hang down like an apron. It happens even with young people

Post- Pregnancy

Same cause, loss of volume at the belly with same effect, loose skin. The abdomen should be given the opportunity to return to normal for about 6 months before seeking advice of a plastic surgeon.

Medical reasons

Some patients suffer from back pain because of the weight of the abdominal excess. A tummy-tuck can do wonders by removing weight that acts as a lever on your mid-spine

Other patients have skin problems

This can be intertrigo, skin infections both bacterial as fungal

 

Not so good reasons for doing a tummy-tuck

Obesity

True « beer belly » obesity is not a good reason. The fat sits behind the muscle and cannot be removed. It's like stretching skin over a football. People need to slim down before embarking on any surgery.

Vascular problems of the abdominal wall

Scars across the abdomen

Previous vascular surgery or serious vascular problems

Note

If you have a moderate obesity, do yourself a favor and loose a few pounds. Your results will be much better. The fat behind the muscles vanishes and makes tightening of all structures much easier. Contact a diet specialist and work out for a few months.

 

A low or a complete tummy-tuck ?

In some cases, mostly after pregnancy patients remain with a slightly bulging abdomen and some excess skin under the navel. These problems can be solved with a low abdominoplasty. The dissection stops at the level of the navel and the incision is shorter. The postop recovery is also shorter. However I do see slightly more seroma with lower than with full abdominoplasties.
