Am I able to have a Tummy tuck?

Q: I just turn 21 and I had my baby girl 9 months ago. I have really bad stretch marks and loose skin. I just want to know if I could be a candidate to do the tummy tuck.

A: A tummy tuck is a great surgery to reverse some of the unpleasant consequences of pregnancy. It can remove loose skin – this will also decrease the number of stretch marks you have on your abdomen. During a tummy tuck, I am also able to repair abdominal muscles that have been stretched out during pregnancy. 9 months is generally enough time after childbirth for you to have fully healed. Ideally you should be at your goal weight before pursuing plastic surgery and I generally recommend waiting until your family is complete before having a tummy tuck. Major changes – like large weight loss or another pregnancy – can undo the effects of the surgery.

No, thank you. I do not want.
