What’s better than a tummy tuck? Although a tummy tuck provides stunning results on its own, we often choose to pair it with liposuction to shape and sculpt the entire mid-section. Liposuction and a tummy tuck can definitely be performed at the same time and often are. Could your middle benefit from this power packed one-two body contouring punch? Call today and schedule your consultation.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
Weight loss and pregnancy can leave a lasting mark on your mid-section. Loose, stretched out skin and separated abdominal muscles are common. Even after you’ve lost the weight, you may find yourself with a permanent pooch. A tummy tuck can restore a flattened appearance to your abdominal area. During the procedure we remove excess skin and fat and tighten and support the abdominal muscles. The result is a smoother, flatter abdomen, even after massive weight loss or pregnancy. Get your body back!
What Happens During Liposuction?
Liposuction is a powerful body contouring treatment that can shape and sculpt areas with stubborn fat. It isn’t a weight loss treatment and works best on patients that are close to their ideal weight, but struggling with pockets of unwanted fat. If you have isolated fat on areas like the abdomen, flanks, or waist, you may benefit from pairing liposuction with your tummy tuck.
During liposuction a small incision is made and a cannula is inserted into the treatment area. Suction is used to remove unwanted fat and to shape and contour the area. Fat cells don’t typically regenerate in adults, so results are lasting.
Liposuction + Tummy Tuck… What Are the Benefits of Both Together?
Liposuction is an excellent complement to your tummy tuck. Each of these procedures enhances the results of the other. Liposuction can improve curves and contours from your tummy tuck and a tummy tuck eliminates excess skin for a flat tummy. These treatments are great on their own, but are certainly better when paired together.
By pairing liposuction with a tummy tuck you’ll receive the benefits of both procedures with only one recovery period. Additionally, we may be able to use incisions from the tummy tuck for your liposuction, reducing scarring.
