Am I Too Old for a Tummy Tuck?
Some people want to know if they are in their 50s or older if they can have this type of surgery. And the answer is that chronological age is much less important than physiological age. Health and fitness are much more important to me as a surgeon to determine whether someone is a candidate for this surgery, but, truthfully, only your surgeon can tell you if you are a good candidate. I would, however, say that many of my patients are in their 50s and above, and do quite well with this type of surgery.
