Tummy Tuck

Am I too obese for tummy tuck surgery? Since an emergency C-section from my pregnancy, my stomach is more low hanging than ever. I have muscle everywhere else, but my stomach is low hanging and I am afraid it’s just excess skin that’s causing my weight to be 280. I have an athletic shape and I am strong through my body. I just need to know if I need to lose a certain amount of weight to be a candidate for tummy tuck surgery. Thank you!

If you have overhanging stomach then you may be a candidate for a TT but I would at least need to see photographs to evaluate better. You can send them to me and I could also give you the price for doing this.

Thank you for asking. Height, weight, and the location for the excess skin and tissue are important factors. Being evaluated in-person is necessary and being healthy enough for a procedure are factors that a plastic surgeon can assess. Making sure you are reasonably close to an appropriate weight for you will allow you to reach a both safe and best possible outcome. Hope this helps and best wishes!
