Is a Tummy Tuck a type of weight loss?

No.  A tummy tuck really shouldn’t be thought of as a quick way to lose a lot of weight.  Although fat can be removed using this technique a tummy tuck only deals with the stomach region.  In order for you to have a healthy, slim appearance, weight needs to be evenly distributed, and to just have a tummy tuck would make your shape very out of proportion.  It is also very important to realize that after the surgery has been performed you need to maintain a good diet and exercise regime.  If you don’t the surgery is basically pointless, weight is easily put back on and the stomach stretched.
