Is it Possible to Loose Weight After Tummy Tuck ?
Manchester, United Kingdom (April 2021) – Tummy Tuck or the so-called Abdominoplasty has been associated with weight loss, a recent study has shown, says Dr. Abel Mounir who practice at Manchester Cosmetic Centre .
Effectively the study has shown that Abdominoplasty leads to weight loss. Surgeons have assessed women after an abdominoplasty surgery, monitoring their results 12 months after their operation. Twenty patients have been subject of follow ups and Fourteen of these patients had lost an amount of weight greater than that of the tissue removed by their abdominoplasty. The results of this study were published in the February 2013 edition of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
“Tummy Tuck surgery is very effective plastic surgery intervention,” says Dr. Mounir, one of the board-certified plastic surgeons in Manchester, UK. “I routinely perform this operation to remove excess skin and fat tissue while repairing weakened abdominal wall due mostly to the results of multiple pregnancies. The study has shown that abdominoplasty may produce more benefits than previously thought.”
Dr Mounir says, “it goes without saying that patients should have realistic expectations and not assume that abdominoplasty interventions will automatically lead to weight loss.”
“Of course, the finding of the study is interesting, it is important to produce a more long-term analysis to confirm their viability. The Manchester and Liverpool patients who undergo body contouring procedures such as tummy tuck surgery and liposuction in Manchester should understand that these are mainly aesthetic procedures designed to reshape the abdomen. Effectively Dr Mounir does remove an important amount of tissue, but patients are not supposed to expect to lose massive amounts of weight as direct consequence of these procedures.”
Dr. Mounir adds that abdominoplasty patients should have achieved their weight target before the surgery and most importantly to maintain a healthy lifestyle after their surgery. “I have achieved some very good results with tummy tuck surgery, but I make sure that my patients that they have contribute significantly to maximizing their own cosmetic outcome,” he says. “This inevitably includes eating healthy and exercising.”
