    If the patient loses a significant amount of weight after the original tummy tuck, then it may be possible to perform a second tummy tuck. Usually, there is not enough skin to perform a second surgery. However, after massive weight loss procedures such as gastric bypass surgery, patients may undergo a second abdominoplasty.
