Have you ever thought, “I’m too old for that”? When it comes to cosmetic procedures, you may be surprised to learn that a person’s age is less of a deciding factor than commonly believed. What does determine a great candidate for a tummy tuck in Toronto? Read on to find out.
Age is only a number- we hear this often, and in the medical aesthetic world, this is quite true. The numbers that plastic surgeons care about most are those that indicate overall health, strong immunity, freedom from disease, allergies or other lifestyle problems. While medical issues don’t always prevent someone from having the surgery they choose, some can interfere with healing, anesthetic or other aspects of recovery.
Here Are Some Critical Health Areas Your Plastic Surgeon Will Review With You
Body fat/BMI- Your body mass index helps present a picture of your health in relation to fat. Ideal ranges are between 18-25, though in some cases a plastic surgeon may consider operating on a client with a BMI higher than 25. Obesity is a concerning factor for elevated risks associated with surgery, so even though tummy tucks are considered to be relatively low risk, being very overweight can change that. No matter your age, you’ll need to maintain a healthy stable weight to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck in Toronto.
Younger clients-under 40- tend to have more elastic skin, and when they’ve lost weight or undergone surgery, they bounce back quickly with smoother, tighter skin contours. Understanding realistic limitations of a Toronto tummy tuck is essential no matter a person’s age. Thin, crepey skin may heal slowly or remain less than perfectly smooth, but results from the procedure can still be beautifully transformative.
If you’re a fit person in the second half of your life, and interested in reshaping your abdomen, don’t rule out a tummy tuck just because of your age. Plastic surgeons carefully evaluate each client for their suitability and recommend the safest approach that will help them reach their goals. You can undergo cosmetic surgery improvements at nearly any age if you’re a good candidate.
