Lower back tattoo

Your lower back tattoo should not be substantially altered by the tummy tuck or liposuction to the flanks.

Thank you for your question and picture. A tummy tuck with flank liposuction when performed by an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will not affect your lower back tattoo. Good luck!

The lower back tattoo should retain its characteristics.

I do not think that the tummy tuck skin excision will alter or distort the appearance of the tattoo on your lower back

Congratulations on your upcoming procedure. The good news is that your tattoo will look the same. God luck!

Abdominoplasty

And abdominoplasty should have no effect, even if hip liposuction is done at the same time. The tattoo will stay in place and look just the same!

Good luck!

Abdominoplasty and back tattoo

An abdominoplasty and liposuction of your flanks should not alter this tattoo.  Best of luck with your surgery and new body.
