Whether you’ve lost weight as the result of diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, you may be considering post-weight loss body contouring procedures such as a thigh lift or tummy tuck. Plastic surgery after weight loss can mark the final stage in your body transformation. Ask yourself these questions to help determine if the time is right for post-weight loss surgery.
Can I Maintain a Healthy Weight?
You should be at a weight you feel confident you can maintain long-term in order to be a good candidate for plastic surgery after weight loss. If your weight fluctuates significantly after you’ve had your body contouring surgery, your results will most likely be affected in a negative way.
