With any surgery, there are risks of complications. As such, you must be in good health to have a tummy tuck. It is also important to wait until you no longer plan to have children before having a tummy tuck. The surgery tightens your abdominal muscles, and a pregnancy after the surgery can loosen them again. On the other hand, you may want to get rid of excess skin around your abdomen after childbirth. At this stage of life, a tummy tuck is a great option.
If you are overweight and want to lose weight, a doctor will advise you to try diet and exercise first, as this surgery is not a weight loss strategy. However, if you have succeeded in losing a significant amount of weight, a tummy tuck is a good strategy to rid yourself of unsightly leftover skin.
