Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a useful surgery for patients who are not overly obese, but have excess of fat and skin in the abdominal area, especially the lower abdomen.
Since it is an elective procedure, the patient should be otherwise healthy and be able to tolerate a general anaethetic. If you have thickened scars from previous surgeries in your lower abdomen you may not be suitable for this procedure. A caesarian section scar is okay. It is best if your weight has stabilised and you are not planning further pregnancies. Being a non smoker is always good for any surgery.
