Am I a good candidate for an abdominoplasty?

If you have an abdominal bulge that rigorous exercise and diet has failed to shift, then an abdominoplasty might be for you. Commonly known as a tummy tuck, this surgical procedure repositions and tightens the abdominal muscles, and removes excess fat and skin, giving your abdomen a pleasingly flat and toned appearance. It is particularly popular among women whose separated muscles did not re-join after pregnancy, and with both men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight.

1. Are you at or near your ideal weight?

Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure; it is only suitable for those who have shed their excess pounds. By being at your ideal weight you can achieve the optimal results.

2. Is this weight sustainable?

Before committing to surgery, think carefully about your lifestyle and life choices. When patients ask Mr Sudip Ghosh how they can preserve the results of their tummy tuck, he advises the best way is to maintain a stable weight. He finds that most of his patients are so pleased with their new profile that they gladly keep up a healthy, active lifestyle – but are you confident you can do this? Milton Keynes-based Mr Ghosh will also explain that while there is no medical reason not to have a baby after an abdominoplasty, pregnancy will compromise the work done to the musculature; it is therefore advisable to wait until you have completed your family before embarking on cosmetic surgery.

3. What are your abdominoplasty expectations?

At Mr Ghosh’s Milton Keynes abdominoplasty clinic, an important part of the consultation is to discuss your goals and objectives. What do you hope to achieve through surgery? Mr Ghosh believes that to be satisfied with the outcome of their cosmetic surgery, a patient must have a clear sense of the limitations of surgery and that their expectations are realistic.
