Many people looking to lose that extra bit of fat on their stomachs will consider receiving a regular or drainless tummy tuck in North Carolina. A tummy tuck can be a great way to obtain the body you want when your diet and exercise routine has reached a dead end. However, there is a specific criterion you must meet to qualify as a candidate.
Abdominoplasty should not be considered as an alternative to weight loss and is generally left as the last resort option. Anyone who has yet to try a weight loss diet and exercise regimen is not applicable candidates for tummy tucks. The procedure is not meant for any women looking to have a baby at some point in their life, as the pregnancy would negate the effects of the surgery. Smokers are also not applicable for this procedure.
The first condition to be applicable for a tummy tuck is to have good overall health. Ideal candidates are those that are committed to the results the surgery provides with a diet and exercise plan that works for their needs and goals. If you are currently a smoker, you must quit several months before the surgery and remain smoke-free throughout recovery and ideally for good. The habit can constrict your blood vessels and prevent oxygen from adequately reaching your body, increasing the risk for complications and prolonged recovery.
