Same Weight After Lipo and Mini Tummy Tuck - Why?

Same Weight after MIni Tummy tuck/ Liposuction
Thank you for the question.
I do not expect it there would be much weight loss associated with mini tummy tuck and liposuction of the lateral thighs. The weight loss associated with this procedure would be a few pounds at most easily compensated by fluid retention and/or minor weight gain associated with relative inactivity after the surgery.
Hopefully you pleased with the results of the surgery in terms of contour improvement; patient should understand that these procedures are not meant to be part of a “weight loss program”.
I hope this helps.
