Get to your goal weight and maintain: you want to lose as much weight as you can prior to surgery. However, it is important that you attain your goal weight and comfortably maintain that weight as well. An abdominoplasty removes all of the excess skin and fatty tissue, tightens your abdominal muscles, and gives you a flat, toned look Effectively, without affecting your buttocks size or shape. Liposuction may be an option as well to contour and enhance your natural curvature but it is not a solution to weight loss.

Liposuction can help achieve a slimmer look "from the side". Liposuction will remove any fatty tissue from your abdominal and flank regions and will contour and define the natural curvature of your waist/hips. A tummy tuck would be another option to if you also had to remove excess skin. Your skin quality and amount of fatty tissue will determine which procedure(s) is right for you.

Generally with a large amount of weight loss, skin sagging is common. Liposuction is used to remove fatty tissue but does not address the excess skin. A brachioplasty will remove the excess skin to contour your arms and for a slim toned look to your arms. Scarring from this procedure is the biggest concern amongst patients however the incision is placed underneath the arms and will, over time, fade.

You want to be at your ideal weight, a weight that you can comfortably maintain for at least 4-6 months, before undergoing a tummy tuck or liposuction procedure. Being at your ideal weight and losing any weight before surgery is important since this will better determine the amount of skin that can be removed and areas that will need contouring, ultimately leaving you with a better aesthetic result.
