How long will my tummy tuck results last?
Barring pregnancy or significant weight gain, your tummy tuck results should be permanent, though plastic surgery cannot stop normal aging. Once the skin is tightened, it will gradually loosen again as you age. If you gain and then lose a large amount of weight after a tummy tuck or become pregnant, the abdominal skin could stretch out again, negatively impacting your results. For this reason, it is best to wait until after you finish having children to undergo a tummy tuck. If you’re planning to lose weight, your surgeon will recommend that you do so before your abdominoplasty surgery.
