Can I have surgery for only a tummy tuck?
The tummy tuck would be able to address loose skin and tighten the abdominal wall.
Find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of tummy tuck procedures each year. Then look at the
website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can
deliver the results.

the information you have provided, I suspect that the appearance of being
pregnant is due to significant fat deposition intra-abdominally.The only way to treat this is with weight
loss.Even if you undergo liposuction of
the external fat or a tummy tuck, you will still have the protuberance of the
abdomen, since the fat causing this is below the muscle within the abdomen
itself.The only way to reduce this fat
is through weight loss.You need to realize
that you can control this problem yourself, though you may need some help.Do not seek surgery for this as you will not
You're the Perfect Candidate: at least on paper!
Based on your comments, you are the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck…kids, C-sections, young. To confirm you're a good candidate, you would need to be seen in person. In the meantime, you can check pricing for this procedure from a doctor near you.
Greetings! Without examining you or at least seeing the photos of your abdomen -- it is impossible to diagnose. However, based on your description-- it sounds like you potentially could be a very good candidate for the Tummy Tuck. It is an amazing procedure and can dramatically improve your appearance. I may be able to use your C-section scar if it is low enough. And your abdominal muscles could be tightened up during the surgery.
