I am 30 years old and currently weigh 219 my highest weight was 264. I would love to have a tummy tuck to get rid of a lot of lower pouch... I get rashes from the skin that hangs over.. Even though I've lost a significant amount of weight they pouch will not get any smaller.., would it be a good idea to do a full tummy tuck at this time?
My Highest Weight Was 264 I'm Down to 219 is It Time for a Tummy Tuck?

Time for tummy tuck
I would say, "yes", assuming you are not going to lose another 20 lbs or so. You would benefit greatly from this.
When is the right time for a tummy tuck
Tell me what you are trying to achieve and what your goals are. I also need to know your height and weight. Why ? Well if you are a female 5'4" and 219 that's entirely than a male, 219 and 6'2" . You want to get the best result and for that you should be within 15-20 pounds of your ideal weight. You might want to consider a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see where you need to be to have a tummy tuck. Good luck, Dr. Schuster in Boca Raton.
