The Benefits of Combining Liposuction with a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck – also known as an abdominoplasty – is a surgical procedure that helps correct abdominal wall damage that may have been caused by pregnancy, injury, or even just getting older. During the tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon fixes the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin, leading to a more contoured and flatter stomach. The tummy tuck procedure is an excellent choice for candidates who may have a stomach pooch that won’t go away even with diet and exercise.
However, an abdominoplasty procedure doesn’t really target the layer of fat that may be preventing you from showing off your new results. That’s why we recommend combining liposuction with a tummy tuck, as it helps ensure patients can truly enjoy their tummy tuck results.
Best of all, you don’t need a separate surgery; your plastic surgeon can remove the layer of stomach fat immediately after repairing the abdominal muscles.
