Where and how will any fat I gain be distributed post tummy tuck procedure with some liposuction?

the best thing is to try not to regain the weight back.
Liposuction and tummy tuck
- a tummy tuck removes fat when it removes skin. This fat does not return.
- fat removed by liposuction of the upper abdomen and flanks - if you eat and exercise to your new shape, which will be about 5 pounds below your normal weight now - will not return.
- if your weight stays the same, fat usually returns above the area of liposuction, eg. lower chest, breasts.
- Best wishes.
