Anyone had a tummy tuck after weight loss?



Recommended Posts

A year after I had my sleeve surgery I had a Tummy Tuck. I am praying that when I lose weight this time I will bounce back somewhat. Anyone with this experience?

Thanks!

But

Question: Are you considering a second TT or WLS? Or just losing regain?

My aunt had TT after 2 years maint. Then gained and lost but now the TT isn’t as pretty as it was but it’s not terrible.

they say more than a 10 lb gain or loss will affect your plastic surgery (to be honest, that's one of the main reasons I had it - as an additional incentive to keep from gaining weight!). As the above person said, it may not be as nice as when you had it done, but unless you've gained back all of your weight, it shouldn't go back to the way it was pre-plastic surgery. At least I wouldn't think so...

Greentealael,

I had WLS in `1998 and a Tummy Tuck with in a year. I am working through getting through all the hoops to have a by-pass due do a medical condition.

Thanks all!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
