My BMI Is 35 Can I Get a Tummy Tuck

Patients with a BMI of 30 or less are generally good candidates for abdominoplasty. Excellent results and safe outcomes are fairly common. Complications rise in tandem with an increase in BMI. Several studies have shown this. Fluid collections or seromas, wound infection, wound dehiscence, poor scarring, blood clots, and dissatisfaction all tend to increase with increasing BMI.

Patients with a BMI between 30 and 35 can have very good outcomes if they are in overall good health. Diabetes, hypertension, respiratory issues, and other health issues may make surgery in this weight category prohibitive.

Why Does BMI Matter for Having Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Record shows that patients with a BMI greater than 35 were at a higher risk of complications when undergoing procedures such as body contouring or tummy tuck.

BMI is not a complete and accurate measure of a patient's overall health, and it was discovered that some patients were classified as "high risk for surgery" despite being otherwise very healthy. So, while statistics and research help us determine what to look for when selecting eligible tummy tuck candidates, BMI is an important factor to consider, but it is not the only factor.
