Considering a tummy tuck in Sept. 2016. I weight...

Considering a tummy tuck in Sept. 2016. I weight train 3xs p/wk with a trainer. I'm pretty strong with good leg muscle. My stomach has always been a problem for me. I'm 5'7, 184lbs. I would like to get closer to my ideal weight of 160. I would like to have opinions on how much more I should lose. I feel I'm not very close to being a good candidate for a TT. Can't stand the fold of skin/fat, you can see through my clothes. Help!

Too much fat?

I have seen some before pictures and I am struggling to understand if I even qualify for a tummy tuck yet.

Too much fat in abdominal area?

Am IA good candidate for a tummy tuck or do I need to lose more weight?

Deposit made!

I'm actually going to do it!! I'm excited!! Focusing on losing more body fat by January 2017. My biggest fear, not being able to work out for a few months after the surgery...

15 Weeks left until Tummy Tuck

25 lbs down, 15 more to go in 15 weeks. I can do this!

So excired6 to have the surgery.
Cleansing, personal trainer 3xs per week, keeping focused on the goal.

Tummy Tuck in 31 days!!

I find myself waking up in the middle of the night anxious and unable to go back to sleep in anticipation of my surgery next month. I'm a little nervous, but my excitement wins. I am nervous I haven't lost enough weight. I weigh 173 and am 5'7. I lift weights, so do have some muscle on me. I'm going over all the lists, making sure I have everything I need. What do I really need?

18 days to go!! + Liposuction of back and flanks to Tummy Tuck

I have added Lipo of the back and flanks to my scheduled Tummy Tuck since I will already be under. I am so excited, nervous, can't seem to sleep at night because I am becoming obsessed with videos and research and overall anxiousness is kicking my but. I have a list of things to ask my surgeon at Pre-op. I think I should stop weight lifting a week prior to my Tummy Tuck so that my body will recover easier and not have to work as hard recovering muscles from my workout. Posting a question for Dr.'s next.
