How Much Weight Can I Lose from Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Q: How much weight (in loose skin/tissue) will I lose from a tummy tuck?

A: There are many variations on the tummy tuck, but it generally involves tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin from the abdomen. The skin and tissue removed usually weigh a couple of pounds, but without seeing you, I can’t make an estimate that is specific for you. I encourage my patients – especially my tummy tuck patients – to achieve and maintain their goal weight PRIOR to surgery. Tummy tucks don’t help with weight loss and losing a significant amount of weight after surgery could lead to loose skin again.

No, thank you. I do not want.
