Dr. William J. Hedden is a board certified who is highly experienced in performing abdominoplasty and other body contouring procedures. Ideal candidates for abdominoplasty are people with excess abdominal skin and fat, non-smokers, physically healthy, and at a stable weight.
The results of a tummy tuck are permanent, but the positive results can be affected by significant fluctuations in your weight. If you are planning substantial weight loss or considering future pregnancies, it would be wise to postpone a tummy tuck.
The causes of excess abdominal fat and skin include aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery and fluctuations in weight. A tummy tuck is designed to creates a flatter stomach by removing excess fat and skin.
