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!
