Age and Abdominoplasty
There is no age limit for abdominoplasty to be performed as long as you are in good health. It is preferred to be near your goal weight to achieve optimal results.
Age and tummy tuck
You are not too old for a tummy tuck. What is more important is your overall health status. Also given your weight loss, your PS should also assess your nutritional status. Please visit with a board certified ASPS member surgeon to learn more about your options.

Abdominoplasty surgery is an option for you as long as your general health is good. You will need routine pre-op testing ie EKG and baseline blood work. If you have any abnormalities, you may require clearance from your medical doctor but surgery is feasible.
Tummy Tuck after massive weight loss, is there an age limit?
63 is not too old for plastic surgery as long as your general health is good. For someone that has lost a large amount of weight it is important to have a good pre operative check of your nutritional staus, heart and lungs and any major medical conditions. Most likely you are in better health today than you were before the weight loss. You are likely to have considerable functional improvement from removing the excess skin. i would encourage you to seek a consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and very experienced in post bariatric surgery, body lifts and tummy tucks.

Is 63 too old to have a Tummy Tuck?
Age is not a contraindication for elective plastic surgery. Overall physical condition and any associated medical problems are much more important. Keep in mind, however, that an abdominoplasty may have a significant recovery period. Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area to see if you would be a good candidate.
63 is not too old
This is a decision for you , if you have lots of extra skin and want an improvement then it is possible. You may take longer to recover and the risk of complications may be higher, but if you are healthy and cleared medically for surgery and want it, then go for it.

63 Probably Not Too Old For Abdominoplasty
You probably are not too old for an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck if your general state of health is good. This is much more important than actual age. With the massive weight loss you have achieved, you certainly will be happy with losing the excess skin. Congratulations!

We are more concerned about your general health than your calendar age. A 63 year old in good health and cleared for the surgery by your primary physician should do well with the surgery. You will find you can be much more active when the excess tissue resulting from massive weight loss is removed.
Too Old for Abdominoplasty?
Thank you for your question. In my practice, I look at the general health of the patient more than the age of the patient. I have some older patients who are in MUCH BETTER health than some younger patients.
Safety is the first priority so I usually as for and EKG and medical clearance from your doctor stating that you are cleared for elective surgery. This procedure has significant recovery time and you need to make sure you have help during that time.
