How will considerable weight loss affect the tummy tuck?

The tummy tuck is performed with the aim of helping the patient get an abdominal area that is flat, firm and smooth and looking younger. The procedure has a high success rate and is commonly performed nowadays all over the United States and around the world.

Many patients interested in undergoing the tummy tuck are worried how weight fluctuations can affect the results, especially when it comes to weight loss.

With a tummy tuck, the plastic surgeon will perform an incision on the inferior part of the abdomen that can be smaller or longer, depending on the amount of skin and fat tissue to be removed. After the incision, the surgeon will detach the skin and fat tissue from the muscles of the abdominal wall and strengthen the muscles if they are distended and loose by using sutures to bring them together. The skin detached from the muscles is then re-draped over the abdominal wall and the excess skin is removed. This complex procedure restores the beautiful appearance of the abdomen by removing the excess skin present on the tummy.

To find out how considerable weight loss can affect the results of the tummy tuck, we need to have a look at what caused the unsightly appearance of the abdomen in the first place. In a vast majority of cases, this is due to a sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise or other factors such as multiple pregnancies or weight fluctuations. Considering the fact that weight fluctuation is one of the most important factors when it comes to the necessity of undergoing plastic surgery, it is only natural for the patient to be worried about undergoing more weight loss after plastic surgery.

After the tummy tuck, the patient will be left with a smooth, firm and flat abdominal area. Since the procedure is mostly recommended for people with poor skin condition or skin imperfections such as stretch marks, the skin will look better and the abdomen will look flatter after a tummy tuck; however, the tonus of the skin won’t improve. This means that if the patient loses a considerable amount of weight afterwards, chances are the skin on the abdomen will become saggy again and an additional procedure might be required. Of course, this won’t happen if the patient loses two more kilograms. The results of the tummy tuck can be affected if the weight loss is more than 3-5 kg per month.

Your plastic surgeon will advise you to make sure you are close to your normal weight and you plan no further weight loss or an ulterior pregnancy to be able to sustain the results of the tummy tuck for longer.
