Male tummy tuck - in Colombia
- Congratulations on your weight loss.
- Please do not have surgery until six months after you have lost all your weight.
- This avoids your having surgery - only to gain weight and not get a good result.
- Please have your surgery in your area - out-of-country surgery has many many more problems than surgery done near your home.
- If you go to Colombia or elsewhere abroad, arrange a plastic surgeon willing to see you after your come home in case you need treatment.

Gastric sleeve 5 months ago, considering a tummy tuck
Thank you for your question. I recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck. I would recommend not going to Columbia for surgery. Should you have any concerns or complications your surgeon will be available to see you, if needed. Be sure to review their before and after pictures and read online reviews. Best of luck to you and congrats on your weight loss!

Hello dear, thanks for your post. I recomend to wait at least 8 month after the sleeve gastric, because at this point you can keep loosing weight, and if you go through a tummy tuck and then keep loosing your skin is going to start getting saggy and you wont have the results that you really want. I recommend to make an evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon to talk about your goals. Good luck :)
Tummy Tuck after Weight Loss
When patients have experienced extreme weight loss due to diet and exercise, #gastricbypass surgery, or #stomachstapling or #lapband surgery, there will be excess body skin that needs removal. In order to correct this problem many patients will need a #TummyTuck surgery, #panniculectomy, or #abdominoplasty. This is becoming a highly requested procedure among patients who wish to rid themselves of excess skin and tighten muscle in their abdominal area. This procedure can be beneficial for patients with loose skin and stretch marks following weight gain and then loss, and patients who have undergone significant weight loss.
Now, there is no way that a six pack can be guaranteed. If you have had trouble losing abdominal fat with diet and exercise, your gastric bypass would have been a big help, but the development of a six pack would depend upon abdominal exercises. Good luck!
