People consider tummy tuck surgery for a variety of reasons and at different stages of life. Some of our Lexington, KY, patients want to regain their pre-pregnancy body, while others want to remove excess skin after major weight loss. There is no single “best age” for a tummy tuck, and people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond can all benefit from the procedure. If you have excess skin and tissue around your midsection, a tummy tuck can enhance your appearance. Younger patients may heal slightly quicker after surgery, but that doesn’t mean older men and women shouldn’t consider the procedure if it suits their goals. Ideal tummy tuck candidates should be close to their ideal weight and have healthy lifestyle habits to help maintain their results. It’s also advisable that women wait until they’re finished having children before undergoing a tummy tuck.
No matter your age, tummy tuck surgery can help you create the toned, firm midsection you’ve always wanted. If you would like to learn more about treatment, please request a consultation online or call (859) 277-9435 (Lexington, KY) or (859) 277-8615 (London, KY).
