If you’re considering a tummy tuck, you may wonder if you’re ready for the procedure. What’s the right age for a tummy tuck? Should you wait? Here are a couple of factors to consider.

Are You at Your Ideal Weight?

A tummy tuck isn’t a weight loss treatment. Before your tummy tuck you should be close to your ideal weight. Some stubborn fat in the abdominal area is okay; a tummy tuck can remove this stubborn fat while tightening muscles and removing loose skin.

Are You Planning Future Pregnancies?

A tummy tuck is often part of a mommy makeover, a set of surgical treatments to restore the body after baby. It can be very effective in restoring a flatter, tighter stomach, but bear in mind that the changes will be reversed if you have another baby. Dr. Waldorf recommends waiting until you’ve finished bearing children to consider a tummy tuck.

If you are at or close to your ideal weight and are finished having children, a tummy tuck might be right for you. There is no one right age for a tummy tuck. More than age, the right time depends on your situation.
