When Could I Have Liposuction After Weight Loss?

When considering liposuction or a tummy tuck during medical weight loss, it’s vital to take into account your overall health, the extent of weight loss, and the stability of your weight, ideally waiting for it to be stable for at least six months to a year. The success of these procedures is also influenced by factors like skin elasticity, which can change after significant weight loss. Therefore, before setting a timeline, it’s essential to consult with both your weight loss doctor and a board-certified cosmetic surgeon to receive tailored advice. They will assess your specific situation and guide you towards the most suitable timing for the surgery, ensuring that the results align with your health journey and post-surgery recovery needs.
