Mon, 09/08/2014

Tummy tucks are a powerful body sculpting procedure that can provide dramatic improvements to your appearance and your self-esteem. While both men and women in Phoenix can enjoy the benefits of abdominoplasty, tummy tucks are not for everyone.

Our surgeons has years of experience working with plastic surgery candidates, and he can help you determine if a tummy tuck is the best procedure to help you achieve your aesthetic and physical goals.

Generally, the best tummy tuck candidates should be:

  • Close to their ideal weight – Tummy tucks are not a weight loss tool, rather a sculpting procedure
  • Physically healthy with a suitable medical history – Your physical well-being is crucial to the success of your procedure and major health problems may cause complications with your procedure.
  • Mentally healthy with realistic expectations – It’s important to understand what your tummy tuck can and cannot accomplish  so you will not be disappointed with your results.
  • Finished having children with no plans for future pregnancies – If you decide to have children after your tummy tuck, the results of your abdominoplasty may be reversed.

The most important thing to remember is that a tummy tuck is a major surgery and your candidacy is best determined by a professional evaluation from our experienced Phoenix plastic surgeon.
