Weightgain after TT
Every surgeon pulls as hard as they can at the primary operation for a TT, some patients have very inelastic skin and will present with a secondary overhang some time later, but a weight gain doesn't help!
and yes a weight gain of 14 lbs can produce the overhang you have.
If you can try and lose the weight , I am sure it'll help, but see your plastic surgeon in the meantime and see what he/she suggests.
