Do I need to lose weight before a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)?

Possibly. The best candidates for a tummy tuck are those in good physical condition with pockets of fat or loose skin that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. Tn addition, the muscles of the abdominal usually have a weakened bowed appearance. Slightly overweight people whose skin has lost some of its elasticity can be helped with a tummy tuck. Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight are also encouraged to wait before undergoing the tummy tuck procedure, since skin typically loosens after substantial weight loss and the fat layer becomes thinner after weight loss, which could result in a less than ideal tummy tuck result.
