I guess they have payment arrangement plans, or access to surgery financing companies.

Rudee, if your "droop" doesn't bug you, don't worry about it! You may be the only one who notices it.
Carecredit is a medical credit card. You can apply for it online at carecredit.com. It's interest free if you can pay it off in a years time. If not, you will be charged 11.9% interest. This can be used for cosmetic surgery, medical, dental, vision & even veterinary. You just need to check online to see which dr's accept it.

ETA: I had lipo on my stomach and under my chin. I've regretted both. My stomach is lumpy & the skin didn't go back, so it's a little flabby. Hell, my whole body is flabby so I guess it's not that noticeable. LOL! My neck is my worse problem. It looks really bad. I had a facelift a couple of years ago, but the quack doctor mainly did my eyes, which are smaller now & more round then almond shaped & he raised my already high cheekbones. This makes my lower face look even worse. I'd like to have the lower face & neck redone, but I don't have the money, plus I'm afraid of going under again. I don't remember, but my daughter told me I had a lot of trouble breathing when I was waking up & I was panicking. Maybe next time I can just do shots of Tequila.

To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

Gosh, I don't know. I think the surgeon determines your need.

A tummy tuck is usually in order for anyone with more than a tiny bit of excess fat or droopy skin in their belly area. You can have a little lipo for the upper belly in addition to a tummy tuck for the lower belly, but lipo alone will not get rid of that lower belly post-pregnancy pooch.

I'm over 30, and it worked for me.

The caveat is that I haven't had children (the surgeon mentioned the best results for stomach lipo are on non post-pregnancy stomachs). But I always had a "breadbasket" along my lower belly.

You can always go to a plastic surgeon's web site and view before and after photos of tummy tucks v. stomach lipo. Again, though, during your initial consultation with the surgeon, she'll advise you best.

I also found that I now love handles that I didn't have before. It's like the fat shifted. I give up!

Wow, a roller? I've never heard of that.
