Tummy tuck surgery consistently ranks among the top plastic surgeries performed around the world, especially for women who tend to carry more weight in their lower tummy. However, many prospective patients worry that they are too old for a tummy tuck. The average age for the procedure falls around 42. Is 50 or 60 too old for a tummy tuck? What is the age limit for a tummy tuck?Plastic surgery–as long as performed in a healthy patient who could benefit from the procedure–generally there is no hard age limit. If a 60-year-old patient is a good candidate for a tummy tuck and healthy enough to undergo the surgery and recovery, they have the procedure. However, conversely, there may be a 35-year-old patient who is a good candidate, but due to a medical condition cannot undergo the surgery.Dr. Jonov may advise younger patients to use caution when seeking tummy tuck surgery. While most adults 18 or older can have a tummy tuck, pregnancy and having kids can reverse results as can major weight fluctuations. Therefore, in some cases, Dr. Jonov may actually advise patients to wait until they are older for an abdominoplasty plastic surgery.To find out if you are a good candidate for a Bellevue tummy tuck, call us at 425-775-3561.
