Who is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains what circumstances determine who is an ideal patient to receive a tummy tuck.
And many patients may be candidate for a tummy tuck. And sometimes we perform what we call a mini tummy tuck as well. So if a woman has just a little extra skin in the lower abdomen and some fatty tissue that they don’t want, we can do some liposuction with the mini tummy tuck. A good candidate for a full abdominoplasty or a full tummy tuck, would be someone perhaps that had one or multiple pregnancies with a lot of skin laxity and loose muscles below the surface.
