Apple shape and Tummy Tuck!
Tummy Tuck for an Apple Shape? Maybe or Maybe Not.
An "apple shape" typically means that a person carries visceral fat. Visceral fat is not amenable and is not helped with a tummy tuck
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
