Tummy Tuck After Weight Loss- How Much Weight Should I Lose Before Surgery?

Finish off your weight loss journey with a tummy tuck. Gaining and losing weight can take its toll on the appearance of your mid-section. Belly fat is easy to gain, but can be very difficult to lose. The abdominal skin may become stretched out and abdominal muscles may loosen and separate. If your tummy isn’t tight and flat after weight loss, ask us about a tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck is best performed on patients that are close to their ideal weight. Lose the weight first and then use this surgery to reshape the abdominal area. During a tummy tuck we often:

  • Perform abdominal liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits
  • Remove excess skin
  • Tighten and strengthen abdominal muscles
  • Redrape the skin and reposition the belly button

If you’ve lost weight, come see if a tummy tuck is right for you.

Tummy Tuck After Pregnancy- How Long After Baby Should I Wait?

Many women opt for a tummy tuck as part of a “mommy makeover,” a combination of procedures chosen to restore a pre-pregnancy appearance to the body. A tummy tuck can combat the abdominal changes many women experience while bearing children. The procedure removes excess skin (and often some stretch marks), eliminates stubborn belly fat, and tightens abdominal muscles that have loosened or separated during pregnancy.

The best time for a mommy makeover or post-baby tummy tuck is after you’ve finished having children. Subsequent pregnancies can reverse the stunning effects of a tummy tuck, so it is best to wait until you are sure that you won’t become pregnant again. You’ll also need to wait until you’ve finished breastfeeding. A flat tummy is possible after pregnancy. Ask us about a tummy tuck!
