Abdominoplasty offers great benefits to health men and women of all ages. It is best suited to those in relatively good shape, but with loose abdominal fat that won't respond to dieting or exercise.

Men or women bothered by any of the following conditions are often good candidates for a tummy tuck:

- Excess fat in the abdominal area
- A protruding abdomen
- Abdominal muscles weakened by pregnancy or aging

Because pregnancy and weight fluctuation can mar your tummy tuck result after surgery, many postpone their procedures until they plan no more children and their weight is stable. Abdominal scars from previous surgeries can limit your abdominoplasty result. In some cases, such as with many Cesarean section scars, the new incisions can be made below the existing scar which can then be removed at the time of your tummy tuck.
