Tummy Tuck Candidates are men and women of various ages who are in good mental and physical health, with excess, sagging skin in the mid-section, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results. The Tummy Tuck Candidates are most commonly women who have been through multiple pregnancies and men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients. When there is excess, sagging skin in the mid-section many people feel very self-conscious and unable to feel their most confident.
The Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty procedure, may be performed on its own or in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction when there is excess, stubborn fat in the area as well. The Tummy Tuck alone will address stretched out abdominal muscles and sagging skin. The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdominal region from hip to hip and does leave behind a permanent scar. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure and the recovery process, and to find out if you may be one of our tummy tuck candidates, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kirk today.
