WHO CAN HAVE ABDOMINOPLASTY?
To strengthen their abdominal muscles and reduce excess skin, women who have had several children may appreciate the surgery as beneficial.
The surgery is also an alternative for men or women who were previously obese and currently have excess fat or loose skin around the stomach area.
However, Abdominoplasty is not for everyone. The doctor might advise against surgery if the patients wish to lose significant weight, might consider pregnancy, have a chronic condition, have a body mass index over 30, are a smoker, and had a previous abdominal surgery, which led to visible scar tissue.
