Not sure what you mean. I had a tummy tuck done about 3 years ago, and my abdomen is, and has been since day one, very tight. Heck, it was so tight I couldn't stand upright without the bracer they gave me for like a month or more!

Can you give an explanation, so we know what/where you need help?

I'm noticing loose skin hanging from my tummy as I'm losing weight. I have a feeling I'm going to want to have this excess skin removed after I get to my goal weight and maintain it for a while.

OP--Since this is anonymous, would you mind telling me what state you live in and how much your tummy tuck cost? Do you have a small incision or the hip to hip incision? On the one hand, I don't like the idea of having it cut off, but on the other hand, I can't stand the idea of having an apron of baggy skin hanging down over my groin!

Tummy tucks are always going to be pretty much from hip to hip, they have to do it that way so they can cut out a section on each side. But it is a much lower incision then it was, say 20 years ago. It is basically in your pubic hairline so even if you wanted to wear a bikini you can. When getting a TT do the research and go to a pro, this is not an area you want to skimp and save money on.

Tummy tuck

I am guessing when you refer to a jelly belly you mean that you have excess skin of some sort? I am wondering about having Cosmetic Surgery in Devon and having a tummy tuck but I am worried about the outcome! Please give advice?
