What tummy tuck surgery can do for older generations

Tummy tuck surgery is a body contouring procedure in which a cosmetic surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal region, and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall to create a smoother, flatter, and firmer midsection. This procedure is ideal for men and women who have excess, sagging skin in their abdominal regions

In addition to improving the appearance of your tummy and silhouette, tummy tuck surgery can help alleviate discomfort caused by loose or sagging skin. If you generally feel self-conscious about your body due to how your tummy looks when wearing swimsuits, youthful-looking clothing, or when nude, tummy tuck surgery could be effective at restoring your youth and making you feel better about yourself.

Ideal candidates for tummy tuck surgery

There are several factors that can qualify you for tummy tuck surgery if you want to improve the appearance of your midsection. If you have sagging, drooping skin on your tummy after experiencing major weight loss, having given birth to one or more children, or from experiencing menopause, you might be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. This procedure also helps improve loss of skin elasticity, which tends to be common in older patients.

Tummy tuck surgery is most ideal for men and women who are in relatively good shape, but are unhappy with fat deposits or loose abdominal skin that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.
