Can I Combine Liposuction and Tummy Tuck?
A nutritious diet and regular exercise are the staples for achieving and maintaining a slim, toned waistline. However, as we age, keeping unwanted weight off of our midsection often becomes more difficult. Isolated deposits of fat can prove resistant to even the most rigorous weight loss efforts. For patients who are at or near their ideal weight but still struggle with unwanted fat or excess skin, body contouring procedures, such as liposuction and tummy tuck, can provide the finishing touches and help finally reveal a slimmer figure.
Liposuction is designed to permanently eliminate unwanted fat from nearly any area of the body. When focused on the abdomen and midsection, this procedure can quickly remove excess fatty tissue. However, for patients who have some skin laxity or stretch marks, a tummy tuck (also called an abdominoplasty) can excise redundant skin for a flatter, more toned stomach. Oftentimes, mothers can also benefit from a tummy tuck, as this procedure is designed to repair underlying abdominal muscles that have been stretched or torn during childbirth.
When these surgeries are combined into a single procedure, patients can receive the body contouring benefits of both liposuction and abdominoplasty to maximize their results.
