Patient was treated with a full Tummy Tuck, Liposuction (mainly to the lower back and flanks) and a Brazilian Butt lift. Tummy Tucks (as in most procedures in Plastic Surgery) are meant for changing the shape, not loosing weight. Really good results are mainly seen in healthy patients. Aesthetic plastic surgery is not meant and will not make you loose weight (at least not considerably), so before a patient decides to undergo an elective cosmetic procedure, he/she needs to make sure that her health is good and stable, otherwise it would simply not make much sense to risk a patient's life if it's not an emergency surgery.
