Second Tummy Tuck

Thank you for your question and photos.

That said the best candidates for a tummy tuck are patients who have reached and maintained their ideal weight before undergoing the procedure. A tummy tuck does not guarantee that the fat will not return. Only a healthy lifestyle which includes a healthy diet and exercise program can maintain a good result after a tummy tuck procedure.

Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in your procedure, and who has an excellent reputation in your community.

This will be hard to make any determination without an exam.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of tummy tuck procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
