Tummy Tuck in a 19 year old
The reasons for the loose skin must first be evaluated i.e., pregnancy, weight gain/loss, etc.
One of the most important considerations is the future of your childbearing. If this remains a desire in the near future, I would postpone the tummy tuck.
Although, non-surgical options abound, they generally deliver far less than expected and many paitents tend to be disappointed with the results. On a scale of 1 to 10, these devices achieve a 1-3 whereas a tummy tuck can achieve a 7-9.
Tummy tucks are a great solution for stretch marks and loose skin
Tummy tucks are a very popular and effective way to contour the abdomen. In our practice, when we evaluate our tummy tuck patients, we determine how much skin and fat can safely be removed. We then show the patients the length of the incisions and how the length of incision will determine how much tissue can safely be resected. If the extra skin and fat is only in your central abdomen, you may only need a mini tummy tuck. However, if you have extra skin and fat in the waist and hip, a standard tummy tuck may better serve your needs.

Tummy Tuck for stretch marks and loose skin
A well-performed Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is THE answer for abdominal wall (muscle) looseness, skin looseness and ugly stretch marks. No other methods work and I have had a LOT of disappointed women come to me after spending thousands of dollars trying to correct these deformities with one quack treatment after other.
Such abdominal wall damage is usually done by a rapid expansion such as pregnancy(ies) or weight gain. The deflation after delivery and / or weight loss leaves loose, damaged overhanging skin and muscle.
IF you are done having children and your weight is stable - Tummy Tuck will likely make you look and feel a lot better. If you are not there yet, I would wait and do it when you reach that stage in life.
But - Remember. It is TOTALLY fixable with a tummy tuck. Do not waste your money on bogus treatments. You'll regret it.
Hope this helped.
