In brief: At least 6 months...

To repeat surgery of same or similar nature at same or nearby site should done at least 6 months or longer until the healing of the tissues operated upon matures & become soft.
Besides, before embarking upon surgery for shaping body for obesity, the patients should counseled for realistic doable weight loss program and expectation. Surgery of this nature alone would not suffice for weight control.
