Tummy Tuck and Age: Here’s What Actually Matters

Even though women and men often think they're too old for cosmetic surgery, age really isn't a critical factor when I assess whether someone is a good surgical candidate.

Resuming Exercise After a Tummy Tuck

My tummy tuck patients in Austin are often very concerned about recovery from the surgery--specifically, how long until they can return to working out. That's understandable since many of them are individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise.
