At one time, plus-sized women who wanted to undergo a tummy tuck were turned away or told to “lose weight” to become eligible for a tummy tuck. Times have changed, and newer advanced procedures allow women who meet certain health criteria to have a custom procedure, a “plus-sized tummy tuck.” A tummy tuck can be performed to create a more sculpted, shapely figure for higher BMI patients.
