Residual Fat after tummy tuck

by Christina

I had a full tummy tuck about 3 months ago and thought my tummy still had alot of fluid in it. I went to my DR. yesterday and asked if he could drain it because he hadn't used drains on me after the surgery. He told me that it wasn't fluid, it was residual fat. He said he could do liposuction but then I might have loose skin afterwards which would require another tummy tuck! I'm going to a different surgeon for a second opinion but, I'm VEY unpleased with the results of the tummy tuck and wouldn't suggest it to anyone. Was wondering if I can lose this "residual fat" on my own and tighten up the skin somehow without undergoing more surgery?

Hi Christina, I also had a tummy tuck in 2008, was very pleased with the results, however I gained weight that messed every thing up a little. But I decided to go on a juice diet and for the first time in my 58 years I lost all the fat and had no cellite on my body any where, also there was no loose skin just drink plenty of water and walk at least an hour a day. In 2 months it was gone. Hope this helps. Lender
