How Long Later Can You Have a Tummy Tuck After a Bariatric Surgery?

A tummy tuck — also known as abdominoplasty — is a cosmetic surgical operation to alter the shape and appearance of the abdomen. Connective tissue in the abdomen (fascia) normally is tightened with sutures as well. After that, the remaining skin is moved to give the appearance of more tone.

If you have a weak lower abdominal wall or excess fat or skin around your belly button, you may decide to get a stomach tuck. Moreover, a stomach tuck can improve your body image.

Weight loss and tummy tuck

Major weight loss requires a lot of commitment and effort, whether it is achieved through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery. After battling with obesity, reaching a healthy weight can change lives, but a lot of individuals are let down by the substantial amount of extra skin that sometimes remains. This sagging tissue tends to happen after considerable weight loss due to the fact it cannot entirely retract after being stretched so far. Some prefer to get Tummy tuck in Dubai, UAE following significant weight reduction because this can make many men and women feel self-conscious about their new bodies.

Our doctors advise waiting approximately a year following weight loss surgery, with at least three months of keeping a steady weight, however, the exact duration may vary for each patient.
