Realistic photos?

Based on your photo you are a great candidate for a tummy tuck and you can expect a very nice flat abdomen. From your wish photos you can see she started with more fat to possibly transfer to other areas.  I would bring this wish photo to your Plastic Surgeon and discuss what you have in mind during your consultation.Best of luck to you.

Tummy Tuck

Hi and thank you for your question and pictures. Your pictures are a bit misleading beacuse you are holding your arms up in the difficult to tell for sure how much extra skin you have but you do indeed appear to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck procedure with liposuction.  Your "wish " pictures however do show curvier hips and larger breasts which would obviously involve additional surgeries.  Best you meet with a PS in person who can examine you and discuss your options in detail. Good luck!

Realistic results?

Thank you for your question and photos. You appear to be an excellent candidate for tummy tuck with liposuction. You appear to have a small umbilical hernia which can easily be repaired during the surgery. The loose skin can be removed and you can expect a very nice result. Speak with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area.Best wishes,

Find the right surgeon

Far more important than the technique is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let them explain why one technique may be better than another.

Am I a good candidate for tummy tuck?

Thank you for your post.  Obviously this forum is no substitute for an in-person consultation and exam but that being said, your photo alone suggests you would be an EXCELLENT candidate for tummy tuck surgery.  In general the idea patient is a healthy non-smoking patient who has had a relatively stable weight for the preceding 3-6 months, has completed her child-bearing years, and has sufficient support to assist with postoperative recovery.  Although it is an outpatient procedure and you should be up and walking the day after surgery, you should nonetheless expect to miss around 2 weeks of work while you recover. Seek out a board-certified surgeon in your area.  Good luck!

Are these results realistic?

Thank you for your question and photograph.  Based on your picture alone you can anticipate a very nice result with a full tummy tuck and liposuction of the waist region.  You do not have the same quantity of fat as your goal photograph to achieve the same fat grafting appearance to the hips but you can use the fat underneath the skin removed during the tummy tuck to add some volume if you desire.  Hope this helps.
