Will I lose weight after a tummy tuck?

Tummy tucks are a very popular procedure and generally records high satisfaction rates as it can transform your abdomen area, when exercise and diet can do no more.

Patients often ask Milton Keynes tummy tuck expert Mr Sudip Ghosh if they will lose weight after their tummy tuck. The most important thing to realise about the tummy tuck is that this is not weight loss surgery. This procedure is best suited to those patients who are either at their ideal weight or just over but are suffering from loose sagging skin and muscles on the abdomen. This can be a common occurrence after multiple pregnancies or if you’ve lost a great deal of weight.

A tummy tuck loses inches

There is not much weight loss after a tummy tuck and, in fact, your weight might go up slightly as you undergo the recovery procedure and are unable to exercise in the post-tummy tuck recovery period.

However, the removal of often very extensive loose skin and tightening up of the abdominal muscles mean that Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes tummy tuck patients often find they lose many inches around the waist and drop a few dress seizes.

The added benefit of a tummy tuck

What Mr Sudip Ghosh commonly finds when he sees tummy tuck patients at follow-up appointments at his Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic is that they have been inspired by the fantastic results of their operation to become even more fit and healthy.

During your tummy tuck consultation Mr Sudip Ghosh can carefully explain the benefits and any drawbacks of the tummy tuck procedure. This is always combined with a physical examination to assess your suitability and if he feels that you would benefit from weight-loss surgery first then he will be able to advise you of your options.
