What Are the Criteria For Tummy Tucks?

What exactly are the criteria that will determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck? There are a number of factors that go into making this decision, and in this article I will discuss those factors and why you may not be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

First, let’s talk about the criteria that will determine if a potential candidate is a good candidate. For the most part, the main criteria that will be used in making this determination include: age, obesity, excess skin, and abdominal fat. It is important to remember that the criteria listed here are not set in stone and are not meant to be used as the only criteria for selecting candidates. There is no one single criterion that defines a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

This is why it is important to speak with a doctor when considering these criteria, and not take it personally if you have not met them yet. This is because there are many factors that contribute to this, including age, genetics, weight, abdominal fat, age-related health issues, obesity, and other health related issues.

The fact is that these are not all factors and there are some that are more important than others. If you have a family history of obesity and health issues such as diabetes then you are probably a better candidate for a tummy tuck. However, you should also keep in mind that the doctor will make the final determination as to whether or not you are a good candidate based on the information they gather from your medical history and the appearance of your abdomen.

The reason that these criteria are not set in stone is because there are so many factors involved that can make you a good candidate or not. One thing that is very important is that your surgeon and his team will take into consideration the weight of your abdomen. Since you are already overweight, and will probably be for the rest of your life, the amount of excess abdominal fat will need to be removed and this is where you will need to make the final decision as to whether or not you are a good candidate.

If your abdominal fat is less than 10% of your total body weight, then it is safe to say that you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck and you can expect that the surgery will result in long term, low-risk results. If the abdominal fat is larger than this level, you should reconsider whether or not you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. And your doctor may recommend that you seek help from a specialist.
