Bigger Woman for Tummy Work? (photo)

Q: I am 300lbs and 5’11” I have always struggled with my weight and have always been a big girl. I hate it, I dont have high blood pressure, my heart is healthy, ive been checked for diabetes many times and my dr say i dont have sighs of it. I’ve lost 90 lbs in about a year. Ive always considered a tummy tuck and pubic lipo so i could begin to work out to keep myself in better shape and to be healthy for my 2 girls. is there any doctor out there who would consider doing the surgery at my size?

A: Congratulations on your weight loss.  I have performed tummy tucks with liposuction for multiple women with similar issues.  As long as your expectations are reasonable (it sounds like yours are), I think you might be very happy with your results from a full tummy tuck and liposuction.  You will not have a completely flat stomach, and after continued weight loss, you may find you want to have another surgery, but I think that removing the overhang will make you much more comfortable in the gym.
