How many pounds will be removed with a tummy tuck?

Q:

If I am over 40 pounds over weight, how many pounds will be removed with a tummy tuck? Also, how much does a tummy tuck cost?

A:

A tummy tuck and any other cosmetic procedure is not a weight reduction surgery, it is a body contouring surgery. You need to lose the weight with a proper diet and exercise. The result of cosmetic surgery is best when you are at or around your ideal body weight.
