Tummy tuck to relieve pain?

I have lost over 100 pounds to reach my goal weight but I still suffer from severe lower back pain. Even after my weight loss, I still suffer from the excess skin on my stomach that adds about 15 pounds of weight. If I have a tummy tuck and get this excess skin removed, will it help me with my back pain?

Tummy tuck

Removal of the excess skin by a tummy tuck should improve your back pain. There are no guarantees, but removing 15 pounds of excess skin would definitely be helpful. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr. D.
