You may be a candidate for abdominoplasty if you:
- Have excess fat and skin in the stomach region
- Have loose abdominal muscles
- Are you near your ideal weight
- Are in good overall health
- Do not smoke or are willing to quit smoking during the procedure and abdominoplasty recovery period
- Have realistic expectations for your results
Women whose abdominal skin and muscles have been stretched by pregnancy and men and women who have loose skin following massive weight loss can greatly benefit from abdominoplasty.
