At age 75, am I too old for a tummy tuck or liposuction?

Age itself is not a contraindication for any surgery, including Tummy Tuck. You are not too old if you are otherwise healthy with no medical conditions that would contraindicate a large procedure. I have done several people your age who have been thrilled with the outcome and wondered why they did not have the surgery sooner. Consult a Plastic Surgeon and your own regular doctor to find out what is involved and how safe it is for you.
