Dear RRSmilles, It is important for a surgeon to completely explain what a procedure can do, so that your expectations are met. A tummy tuck can remove loose hanging skin and tighten the muscles which will make the abdominal area look better. It is possible that your surgeon performed a panniculectomy which simply removes the hanging skin. A tummy tuck is not a substitite for healthy eating habits and excersize. Did your surgeon talk to you about the possibility of a gastric band for your weight issues? Good luck.
