Can A Tummy Tuck Effect Kidney Transplant?

i want a mini tummy tuck, i am on home hemo dialysis and weigh 128 pounds, i am not diabetic i have protein in the urine, if a mini tummy tuck is safe will there be any effects on a kidney transplant at a later time? i was thinking with the skin stretched so tight the mini tummy tuck would effect the transplant

HI
TUMMY TUCK SURGERY WILL NOT HAVE EFFECT ON RENAL TRANSPLANT.
BUT IT MAY HAVE EFFECT LATER ON IF YOU DECIDE TO SHIFT TO PERITONEAL DIALYSIS(PD) WHILE INSERTING PD CATHETER.
I WOULD ADVISE YOU REGULAR EXERCISE TO CONTROL WEIGHT.
ALSO YOU MENTIONED ABOUT PROTEIN IN URINE WITHOUT BEING DIABETIC.THIS IS LIKELY TO BE CONDITION CALLED FSGS(FOCAL SEGMENTAL GLOMERULOSCLEROSIS) WHICH IS SECONDARY TO OBESITY.
SO REGULAR EXCERCISE AND DIET TO PROMOTE WEIGHT LOSS WILL HELP YOU.
WISH YOU GOOD HEALTH!!
THANKS
