My hope (and my ps) is that we get down 20lbs. Is it fesable or realistic?
Just had a TT with muscle repair; is it possible to lose weight after this?

Thank you for your question.
That said, yes, it is possible to lose weight after a tummy tuck. It is important to follow a healthy plan that includes a balanced diet and exercise. Losing weight slowly is much healthier and safer. I wish you the best.
Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in your procedure, and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
