I've never had children and don't plan to. Will I get even better results w/ muscle tightening than someone who has?

is suggestive of a better result. See a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns.

Photos would be helpful, but I am surprised that you need Tummytuck according to your height and weight. If you lost a lot of weight, and have residual redundant skin, then Tummytuck is your best option. If you have never been pregnant, you might not need muscle tightening, physical exam would help diagnose. Results depend on several factors, including skin type and individual healing, but chances are, at ideal weight you describe, results should be excellent. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
