When you think of certain cosmetic procedures, does an “ideal age” come to mind? Many people have been led to believe the misconception that only younger people can have plastic surgery, when this is not at all the case.
A tummy tuck is one great example of this fallacy. People of many different ages can enjoy the remarkable benefits of tummy tuck surgery. In fact, people well into their 60s and 70s often find they are thrilled that they decided to get a tummy tuck - and still enjoy the effects as much as a younger person would.
The most popular time to get a tummy tuck is after a woman is done with pregnancy. Whether she’s had one pregnancy or several, the abdominal muscles can be stretched, excess skin can hang down, and fat tends to linger in the belly area. But remember, “after pregnancy” doesn’t have to mean in your 30s or 40s. It can be a woman who’s into her 50s and well beyond -- perhaps she’s a grandma who wants to look as great as she feels. A woman deserves to get her pre-pregnancy belly back at any age so she can feel confident and look her best.
Post weight loss
Whether you’ve lost 15 pounds or 150, you may find that your belly just won’t catch up to the rest of your body. Men and women alike are often disappointed when they’ve worked hard to slim down and get strong and healthy only to find that their abdomen looks loose, paunchy, or saggy. This is a common problem, but you don’t have to live with it! Whether you’re 25 or 75, if you’re in good health and are taking care of your body, you deserve to have that toned, slim abdomen you’ve worked hard to achieve.
Skin loses its fight with gravity as the years go by, especially as we get older. A tummy tuck can give back what time has taken away. This could make you feel younger and make you more motivated to put on that exercise gear and head to the gym. It’s yet another benefit to having that cosmetic surgery you’ve been wanting: you may be motivated to take more steps to be healthier at any age.
Who says only younger people should look and feel great? People of all ages deserve to have a more toned, sculpted abdomen to help them improve their confidence. Don’t put off calling a cosmetic surgeon because you think you’re “too old.” A professional, qualified surgeon will discuss your expectations and needs, no matter what year is on your driver’s license.
