Hi Ladies, In my research of determining what is a good result, I've only recently come across reliable info in regards to what actually are the aesthetics ps try to achieve. The following links provide info in relation to the High Lateral Tension Tummy Tuck...the technique I am currently interested in. After reading articles on this particular technique I find that I am better able to look for markers, signs, and subtleties  of a good tuck. The links are long and technical but I honestly feel they are a good general starting point for those searching like me.    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2825125/ http://www.modernmedicine.com/modernmedicine/Modern+Medicine+Now/High-lateral-tension-abdominoplasty-offers-benefit/ArticleStandard/Article/detail/762877 http://www.abodybeautiful.com/tummy_tuck_forum/tummy_tuck_surgeon.html   Please note I am NOT recommending any of these surgeons or one technique over another. These links are to provide a stating point for determining ps and results for a good tuck. I asked this question before...not here...and no one could really explain what exactly is a good tuck, how it should move, or feel to the touch, why some are flat and others not so much....why is it that some results produce a more natural contour and even a six pack?
