Thank you for your question. You will need to discuss this with both a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Pediatrician, and evaluate the benefits and risks of this procedure at this age. This is not the typical age range for this procedure. I hope this helps.
Tummy tuck after weight loss
You need to lose the weight and be at a stable weight before proceeding with a tummy tuck, but it is something that could be worthwhile. Even though you are only 14 years old and would need parental consent to have the surgery performed, it is certainly possible.

Generally you should be about one year after your bariatric surgery and should be at a stable weight for several months. Additionally, you should be within a few a pounds of your goal weight.
