Who are the best candidates for a tummy tuck?

ANSWER

A tummy tuck is suitable for men and women who are in good health.

Women who've had several pregnancies may find the procedure useful for tightening their abs and getting rid of sagging skin.

A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
