My father in law is 70 years old and has lost 100 lbs. He has alot of excess skin in the abdominal area. He also has alot of pain in his lower back.
Would a tummy tuck help him with his back pain. It seems to me the excess skin hanging would apply pressure to the back. Other wise he is in pretty goood health.

I am pretty sure that your father in law will be improved with a TT, it will help, no doubt about it to his back pain and of course to his self steem. Probably may need a circular TT.
it would be easier to evaluate his condition through photos (no face please), front, side and back views.
My pleasure to serve you.
