If you have loose, sagging skin, stretch marks, weakened abdominal muscles, and small amounts of stubborn fatty tissue in your midsection, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is thorough a one-on-one consultation with Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole. During this consultation Dr. O’Toole can listen to your concerns, assess your frame, discuss your options, and help you determine if a tummy tuck is right for you.

If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to learn if you are a good tummy tuck candidate, please contact Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery or call (626) 689-7800 today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. O’Toole.

Tummy Tuck Considerations

Tummy tuck surgery is best for healthy individuals who are close to their goal weight. If you are trying to lose weight or if you plan on having children in the future, now may not be the best time for a tummy tuck.

In addition to being in generally good health and close to your ideal weight, to be a good tummy tuck candidate you will need to be:

  • A nonsmoker or committed to quitting well in advance of your procedure
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure and necessary recovery period
  • Aware of all potential risks and complications
  • Prepared to closely follow our Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon’s pre and postoperative advice
