Will I lose weight after a tummy tuck?

As a Los Angeles plastic surgeon, I am frequently asked this question by patients who see me for a tummy tuck. The answer is that many of my patients start losing weight after undergoing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). There are several factors that contribute to that.

 First, many patients report that after a tummy tuck they feel full faster when they eat than before surgery.  This results from the fact that during abdominoplasty, the abdominal wall muscles are tightened with sutures. Tightening of the muscles reduces the  intraabdominal capacity.  Therefore, smaller amount of food in the stomach will cause the patients to feel full. 
     

 
Many patients who underwent abdominoplasty find it easier to exercise after undergoing abdominoplasty as there is no excess skin hanging in the lower abdomen. The redundant abdominal skin and fat in some patients can be quite heavy.  It has also been my observation that patients feel more motivated to exercise and follow a diet after surgery which is also very important for weight loss.  
    

 
A tummy tuck in Los Angeles is a frequently performed procedure. This procedure allows us to remove excess abdominal fat and skin as well as tighten abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck allows you to achieve a more flat appearing abdomen.  It is common for a

 

 Los Angeles  plastic surgeon to combine tummy tuck procedures with liposuction of flanks or other areas.  Liposuction of flanks with a tummy tuck allows you a better defined waist area.  Visit a tummy tuck before and after section from the internet to view pictures of patients who underwent these procedures.
