Can Tummy Tuck and Gastric Bypass Be Done at the Same Time

+1

In general this sounds like a poor idea. 

With a well functioning bypass the expectation is for significant weight loss, and high likelihood of skin excess. If you have a TT before you lose weight, you will likely need another after your weight has stabilized. 

There may be some exceptions to this general guideline, and your bariatric surgeon can let you know if he/she thinks it is worthy of consideration.

Thanks for your question, all the best.
