there is no specific age requirement to have abdominoplasty and liposuction of
the thighs or medial thigh lift, good candidates for these procedures are women
who are at a stable weight, motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and are
done with their child bearing. These
patient qualities help in ensuring the best result possible. If you are interested in discussing these
procedures, I would encourage you to consult with a board certified plastic
surgeon in your area.
Thank you for the question.
To best help you, a physical
examination or picture evaluation is required in order to determine
which procedures and techniques would be best for your case. The answer is 18, here in Mexico.
If you are a young individual who has lost a substantial amount of weight, the surgeries can be undertaken once a stable, healthy weight has been achieved for a few months. A standard tummy tuck would remove loose skin, tighten the muscles, and remove the stretchmarks below the navel.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of tummy
tucks and body contouring procedures each year. Then look at the
website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can
deliver the results.

There is not a specific age for either or both operations. Your anatomy and expectations are of far more importance than your age. Some folks warn against tummy tuck if future pregnancies are expected but that is surgeon specific and not an absolute.
