Can U Get a T. Tuck After Your Omentum Has Been Removed?
Yes, you can have a tummy tuck if your omentum has been removed
omentum is inside the abdomen. its previous removal has no effect on your ability to have a tummy tuck.

Omentum and tummy tuck
The omentum is found deep to the muscle layers and in no way will get in the way of a tummy tuck. You should be fine.
A Tummy Tuck CAN be done after an Omentectomy providing it was not done for Cancer
Tummy Tuck without Omentum
There is no reason you can't have a tummy tuck after the removal of your omen tum.When doing a Tummy y tuck you never go into the abdomen so all should be fine.
Prior abdominal surgery and tummy tuck
A tummy tuck should not be effected by your prior history of omental resection unless you have a resulting hernia or transverse scar which could require more extensive surgery or interfere with the blood supply to the skin, respectively.

Most likely but I would want to know the reason for the omental removal. Please see 3 boarded plastic surgeons in your area. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl J. Blinski, 305 598 0091
There is No Relationship Between Tummy Tuck and Omentum
There is no particular relationship between your omentum and a tummy tuck. Having previously had your omentum removed (although I am curious as to why which you failed to mention) should not interfere with having a tummy tuck performed, assuming that there is not more to the story.
