Thank you for your photos and question. Yes, you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck with liposuction. I would suggest a "no-drain tummy tuck. You wouldn't be encumbered with the drains hanging out for a few days to a week or longer, The recovery time is shorter with less discomfort, and the complication rate is significantly less. It does require deep sutures called Progressive Tension Sutures, but anyone that is knowledge with the technique is  using them.Good luck with your procedure..

Based on your photos, it looks like you are a good candidate to have a very nice result from a tummy tuck.  Other factors to consider are your general medical health, medications, and smoking status.  Good luck with your tummy tuck!  I'm sure you will love the results.

Tummy tuck candidate

Thank you for your question and photos. The ideal tummy tuck patient should be in good health and a non-smoker to reduce risks and complications. Without knowing your medical history and based solely on your photos you appear to be a good candidate for tummy tuck.

Candidate for tummy tuck

Assuming you have no medical contraindications to surgery, then yes it does appear that you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Some liposuction of the hips and flanks would also improve the results. Best of luck.

Good candidate for tummy tuck

Assuming no significant medical problems, you are a very good candidate for a tummy tuck.  Adding liposuction would further enhance the end result.  You may want to ask your surgeon if they perform the "Hollywood Tummy Tuck".  It's an advanced technique that does not require any drains post-op.

Am I a good candidate for tummy tuck

I think you are an excellent candidate for a full tummy tuck. If you can lose any weight prior to the procedure, the results will be even better. Best of luck.
