People who maintain a steady weight, Women and men who are overweight or of relatively normal weight but having isolated tummy bulge causing their body to appear disproportionate are particularly well suited to tummy-liposuction or tummy fat reduction. Though anyone who is otherwise healthy can go for it and it is possible to undergo tummy-liposuction at almost any age, best results (almost flat tummy) can be obtained if one’s skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. Inelastic skin as in some older patients or after in women's tummy after childbirth may not recover well with liposuction alone, making a skin tightening procedure (like abdominoplasty/tummy-tuck) inevitable for better results. Many women do have a hanging pouch of skin consisting of more skin rather than fat in lower tummy after pregnancy which has to be removed directly as this will not be responding to liposuction alone. A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
