I had a tummy tuck 27 years ago. I did gain weight back, but not until I hit menopause at age 50. I’ve gained weight in the upper stomach area, around my heart and lungs. The fat had to go there because the lower fat cells had been removed. If I had known then, what I know now, I would never have had it done. If you are not 100% sure you can control your weight, don’t do it.
