Does a Tummy Tuck Lead to Weight Loss?

A tummy tuck – also known as an abdominal contouring – is a plastic surgery procedure designed to repair abdominal walls that may have been damaged by pregnancy, injury, or just getting older. The end result of a tummy tuck is a more contoured and streamlined stomach, which makes it perfect for patients with a stubborn tummy pooch. All this leaves potential candidates with a burning question: “Does a tummy tuck lead to weight loss?”

A Tummy Tuck Isn’t a Substitute for a Healthy Lifestyle

A tummy tuck shouldn’t be regarded as a weight-loss solution, because it’s simply not meant to help you lose pounds. Instead, an abdominoplasty is designed to repair and streamline damaged abdominal walls to produce a flatter appearance. While the end result may make it look like you’ve undergone significant weight loss (and you’ll probably fit into some old jeans of yours), the truth is that it’s just streamlining the stomach for a more flattering look.

A Tummy Tuck Can Inspire More Weight Loss

Before you write off a tummy tuck as a way to lose stubborn pounds, you may be interested to know that studies have shown that an abdominoplasty procedure can have a secondary weight-loss effect. Think about it this way: If you’ve been dieting and exercising without seeing your stomach pooch slim down, it’s understandably hard to stick to a healthy lifestyle you don’t think is working. Yet if you undergo a tummy tuck and see your stomach significantly reduced, it can inspire you to stick to those healthy habits, thus leading to weight loss.
