Combine Tummy Tuck With Liposuction: What Are the Benefits?

No matter how much you diet and exercise, you may find that you still have excess fat and skin around your abdominal area. Although a tummy tuck can help to remove the excess skin from this area, there is a chance that you will be left with stubborn fat deposits. Combining your tummy tuck procedure with liposuction can help address both of these concerns at once. Here is what you should know.

What Liposuction Does for You

Liposuction uses a medical device to remove pockets of fat that you can not get rid of by diet or exercise alone. This procedure is frequently used to get rid of back rolls, love handles, and belly fat. However, it does not remove excess skin or repair lax muscles that you may have after losing a significant amount of weight or after having a baby.

What a Tummy Tuck Does for You

A tummy tuck does not remove excess fat from the body. Instead, it aims to remove the excess skin left after losing a significant amount of weight or that might not have shrunk back into place after pregnancy. A tummy tuck also tightens loose abdominal muscles.

Combining a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction for Best Results

Combining a tummy tuck surgery with liposuction allows our surgeon to address excess skin and stubborn fat deposits simultaneously. This eliminates the need for two surgeries, thus reducing the amount of time you have to spend recovering. Additionally, this combination provides enhanced results by allowing our team to sculpt and contour your body at the same time as the skin is removed. This ensures you achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results possible from your surgery.
