Designed to correct a protruding abdomen, a tummy tuck addresses unwanted excess skin and tightens the underlying abdominal musculature. The goal is a more toned and flatter midsection. Although a tummy tuck will slim your waistline, it is not a weight-loss tool.
At Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery & Laser Skin Care Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Fugo is often asked by patients if they should lose weight before their tummy tuck. While the answer is unique to each patient, this blog from Dr. Fugo can shed light on how weight loss — and weight gain — will affect your tummy tuck.
While some plastic surgery procedures are purely cosmetic, the tummy tuck is unique in that it has both aesthetic and medical benefits. For some of Dr. Fugo’s patients, the medical benefits can be a major draw.

Arms are a particularly difficult area to slim down. Oftentimes it doesn’t matter how well you eat or how many curls you do; your genetics may predispose you to have extra skin, fat or both on your arms. Dr. Fugo has heard this common complaint from many of his New York patients who are seeking a way to firm their arms. If you have excess skin or fat on your arms that refuses to respond to your diet and exercise routine, an arm lift might be an excellent way to achieve the shapely arms you have always dreamed of.
