An abdominoplasty will only address issues on the font of the tummy. Following weight loss the skin excess can be located all the way round the sides and the buttocks and back. If one were only to perform an abdominoplasty the areas on the flanks and on the back / buttocks would not be addressed. A total body lift is more extensive but with modern techniques the operative time and recovery and complications have improved considerably.
