How Does My Current Weight Impact My Eligibility for a Tummy Tuck?

If you are at an earlier stage of your weight loss journey, you may not yet be eligible for a tummy tuck. Generally, plastic surgeons like Dr. Lowe will wait until you are within about 10 pounds of your goal weight before scheduling an abdominoplasty. 

This allows for more stable end results, as well as a safer overall treatment. Remember: procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck are not weight loss procedures. Instead, they are intended to help you realize a leaner, healthier you following weight loss.

A Typical Abdominoplasty Timeline

After we welcome you to our Oklahoma City office, you will meet with our plastic surgeon, Dr. Lowe. He will determine if you are a candidate, educate you fully, and answer any questions that you might have. If you are ready, we can schedule your tummy tuck.


Dr. Lowe and our team can conduct your abdominoplasty at our on-site certified surgical OR facility located in Oklahoma City.

Make sure to arrive early for your procedure.


It's a priority for Dr. Lowe to ensure that his patients are comfortable throughout the tummy tuck process. You will be totally at ease during your surgery with sedation. It will feel very much like drifting off to sleep.


Before your procedure, Dr. Lowe will carefully mark the incision sites along your abdominal area.

During your tummy tuck, he will precisely follow these incision lines.


Next, Dr. Lowe will carefully remove the excess fat and skin.

Unless you have also opted for liposuction, the fat and skin will only be taken away from the region at and below your belly button.

Muscle Repair

When necessary, Dr. Lowe can also repair separated muscles in the abdominal area to achieve a fit, toned look.


Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Lowe will close your abdominal incisions with stitches.

He may also attach drains so you can recover with reduced swelling and buildup. A drainless surgical technique can also be used if requested.


You may need to stay overnight. After you are cleared to go home, a trusted friend or family member can drive you back.

During this time, please rest, avoiding active job duties and housework.

Recovery From a Tummy Tuck Can Take Three Months Here's How to Make the Most of It

Don't Smoke

Before your plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Lowe will ask if you smoke. That is because smoking beforehand can raise risks of complications. It's also equally important not to smoke as you recover.

Stay Clean

Infections, one of the most common complications of surgery, are also fairly preventable. Keep your stomach clean and follow all care instructions from Dr. Lowe.

Have Help

Don't be afraid to ask for help with housework, errands, or child care during your recovery process. The better care you take of yourself as you heal, the easier recovery will be.

If you have questions after your surgery, you can always contact our Oklahoma City team. We're here to help you heal with complete peace of mind.

What Will My Tummy Tuck Look Like After I've Finished Healing?

As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Lowe knows that one of the main concerns for patients is how they will heal after surgery. With proper care, the incisions created during your tummy tuck will fade over time, producing minimal scarring that can be easily hidden. If you are still unsatisfied with your appearance, Dr. Lowe also offers laser treatment for scarring.

For Comprehensive Contouring Dr. Lowe Can Include Your Tummy Tuck in a Full Body Lift

Often, patients who have achieved massive weight loss find that although a tummy tuck can enhance their figures, other areas of the body are also affected by stretched, sagging skin. In these cases, Dr. Lowe can combine a tummy tuck with other body contouring procedures to achieve a full body lift.

This custom procedure can incorporate techniques such as thigh lift, arm lift, and liposuction in virtually any area of the body to realize a comprehensive transformation. Each step in the process is tailored to your goals and needs.

Have you lost significant weight, but excess skin laxity and stubborn fat deposits continue to take a toll on your figure? We invite you to talk to Dr. Lowe about a full body lift.
