Q&A: Do I Need to Get Lipo on my Love Handles Done for my Tummy Tuck to Look Right

love handles removal

“I am 30 years old, 5’3 and 130 lbs. I just had my second and final child 5 mo ago (I have been at my pre preg weight since a week after his birth). I am scheduling a full tummy tuck and will obviously ask my PS what he thinks but want more than just one opinion. If I’m getting surgery, it might as well be the best option – I’m pretty happy with my general size, I just want to be firmer and smaller around my stomach.”, asked a RealSelf user.

“Thank you for this good question and pictures. You are a good candidate for a Tummy tuck. Most patients do benefit from additional love handle (flanks) liposuction. I prefer the Lateral Tension Abdominoplasty which allows for more precise liposuction and sculpting while keeping the blood supply intact and safe. Best of luck.”, explained Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S.
