Are you a candidate for a tummy tuck?
Have a question? Ask a doctor
Yes you are a candidate. You will not have a flat stomach at the end result but you will have a great improvement. The panniculus will be gone, the upper abdomen can be suctioned and this will help. Since you are substantially overweight, your muscles cannot be pulled together but nevertheless you will have much improvement. Then lose weigh which should be a lot easier after the TT.

Weight loss would improve the result, but a tummy tuck will produce a very nice improvement.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of tummy tuck procedures each year. Then look at the
website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can
deliver the results.
