Good Candidate for Tummy Tuck? Post Gastric Bypass, 5'9, 215LBS?
I am 25 years old and had gastric bypass 3 years ago. Prior to surgery, I weighed 320 pounds. I am now 5'9'' & between 210-220. I have maintained my current weight for the past 2 years. I have heard that many plastic surgeons want you to be at your perfect BMI before performing a tummy tuck but I am happy where I am at. However, I would love to remove my excess skin and feel more comfortable in my body. Would I be a good candidate or am I just going to be told I need to lose more weight first?
