How long should I wait after losing weight to have the excess skin removed off my arms and to get a tummy tuck?

How long should I wait after losing weight to have the excess skin removed off my arms and to get a tummy tuck?

Hello Janie L,

Thanks for your question.

I recommend you wait until your weight loss has reached a plateau for at least 4 months before you plan to get any plastic surgery.

This usually takes 12 to 18 months following your bypass surgery.

Once your weight is stable, you can consider plastic surgery to remove the extra skin.

Any weight fluctuation (either gain or loss) may negatively impact your long-term aesthetic result.

Thanks again for your question.

Sincerely,

Abhay Gupta, MD, FACS.
