Dr said he took off 14 lbs during surgery but I am 3 days out and still weigh more than before surgery. Has anyone had this experience? When did you start to lose?

I gained over five pounds from surgery, but with in two weeks I was 7 pound below my pre op weight. It was pretty amazing.

According to many doctors, you'll actually gain weight after surgery because of fluid retention. Try not to pay attention to the numbers at the moment and concentrate on recovering.

Here's what some docs have to say about weight and tummy tucks.
