The Importance of Maintaining Your Body Weight After Surgery

Published on August 25, 2017

Losing weight can be a big challenge for many people, but the satisfaction of reaching your ideal body weight makes the entire process worth it. However, losing the weight is just the first part of the challenge. The next challenge is maintaining that new body weight.

The reason this is so important is because patients who lose large amount of body fat will have loose sagging skin that they will want to get rid of through surgery. If these patients do not maintain their body weight after the procedure, it will ruin their results.

The best candidates for surgical body-contouring procedures like a tummy tuck or arm lift are those who have consistently maintained their body weight through regular exercise and by eating a healthy diet.
