Is 50 the new “it” age for tummy tucks? Many women think so. According to The Daily Mail, one woman decided a tummy tuck was the perfect birthday present, better than a cruise, a car, or any other present she could think of.

Oftentimes, women want work done in their earlier years but hold off because of job, family and time commitments. Many women would like to have a plastic surgery procedure done, but believe being past a certain age makes them too old or ill prepared for the surgery.

What is The Perfect Age for Surgery?

There is no perfect age for cosmetic surgery procedures. Numerous factors can impact the likelihood and success of your change including overall health, expectations and what exactly you would like to have done.

The Lett Center believes that age is only one of many considerations in a plastic surgery consultation, and should never stop you from researching options or scheduling a meeting for more information.

A tummy tuck, as with any other plastic surgery change, cannot fix everything. Age is a factor of life, and although some aspects can be reversed, not all outcomes can be the same.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

A tummy tuck could be the right change for you if you have:

  • An inability of diet and exercise to improve the abdominal area
  • Excessive skin surrounding the area after a weight loss
  • Loss of skin elasticity due to pregnancy
  • Want to remove fat deposits or skin and improve alignment of abdominal muscles for a flatter, more toned appearance.

Regardless of age, if you are interested in learning more about a tummy tuck procedure or any other cosmetic change, schedule a consultation with The Letter Center for more information or check out our website.
