IDEAL TUMMY TUCK CANDIDATES
Houston abdominoplasty candidates are men or women who experience weakened abdominal muscles, loss of skin elasticity, excess skin with stretch marks, and stubborn fat in the abdominal region due to:
- Extreme weight loss or weight gain
- Poor lifestyle choices
Although surgery can enhance the patient’s features, it is not a weight loss treatment meant to be a substitute for diet and exercise.
Ideal candidates are in good health and have maintained a proximity to their optimal weight. They are non-smokers who understand the risks and benefits of treatment. They also have realistic expectations and are willing to follow surgical instructions to prepare for surgery and enhance healing during recovery.
