Can a tummy tuck be used for weight loss?
Tummy Tuck Dubai | 4 June 2019
Because only a certain amount of body fat is safe to remove, abdominoplasty should not be viewed as a method for weight loss. Furthermore, a tummy tuck does not necessarily improve your blood pressure, cholesterol level or other effects stemming from obesity. For these very reasons, I don’t recommend abdominoplasty as a way for you to treat obesity or diabetes.
On the other hand, I can recommend abdominoplasty for diabetic patients, as long as you meet certain conditions:
The diabetic condition is under control and not causing any complications
There is no history of kidney ailments
You agree to additional blood tests to ensure your diabetes is under control and it is safe to proceed with the operation
