I’m 55y/o. Have had my tummy cut open four times during my lifetime, I’ve been cut horizontally and vertically. 2 c-sections, one for endometriosis and the 4th for a partial hysterectomy. There is mesh on the lower left quadrant for endometriosis that grew into my abdominal wall. But it was over corrected and there is a duvet there.
I was up to 270lbs mostly for meds from a medical conditions. I now weigh 192. And am still working on it.

Is there an opinion as to if my enquiry for a tummy tuck is viable? THANK YOU

    Abdominoplasty can range anywhere between $8500-13,000, including anesthesia and facility fees. This is a vast range due to the many variations for abdominoplasty and the amount of excess skin and fat that will be removed.

    Yes there is an option. Look at a BMI chart and get yours below 30 – best to be closer to 25. See a plastic surgeon for their opinion — but you can have things done depending on the physical exam. You have done well with weight loss — continue it and we should be able to help you with the excess skin.
