Is A Tummy Tuck Just To Get Rid Of Unwanted Fat? 

Though that may be one of the most popular reasons to get the tummy tuck procedure, tummy tucks, otherwise known as an abdominoplasty, are procedures that help address not only excess fat but also sagging skin and can surgically tighten weakened muscles due to pregnancy. It is important to note; however, that tummy tucks are not weight loss tools. The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is someone already at or near their weight goal.

Do Only Women Get Tummy Tucks? 

No. Though tummy tucks are typically included in “mommy makeover” procedures, women are not the only ones who need to deal with issues such as sagging skin and excess fat. Stubborn belly fat or loose skin are not gendered items; in fact, a tummy tuck procedure was one of the top plastic surgeries done by men in 2022.

Is There An Age Limit To Getting A Tummy Tuck? 

Not at all! Though most who get a tummy tuck fall into the age range of 35 to 50 years old; there are people over the age of 65 who have gotten the procedure before to great results. Rather than age, factors that are considered are related to physical health.
