Q: “Although many of you drs out there have magical

surgical skills I’m not keen on have a TT scar across my abdomen (also due to possible slow healing with pre existing condition of RA meds). I’m 48 years old and overweight with a BMI of 35. I hope to lose 45lbs prior to surgery that will bring BMI under 30. I have not had any children, apart from my food baby. Tummy Tuck (and lipo) or lipo only?”

Dr. Yovino’s Answer: Lipo first then TT. I thInk you’ll likely benefit the most from full abdominal lipo first. Once you’ve completely shrunk down then reassess and possibly then consider a tummy tuck.
