Tummy tuck, also referred to as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure for men and women who are looking to achieve a flatter and firmer belly. While exercise and diet are a great way to tone your body, they do not always lead to the shapely abdominal contour that you so desire. Tummy tuck plastic surgery focuses on getting rid of unresponsive fat and excess skin, as well as tightening stretched abdominal muscles in order to suit your aesthetic goals.
The most notable benefit of adding liposuction to your tummy tuck is the fact that we can address exercise-resistant fat concurrently with eliminating loose skin and repairing muscle tissue. Thus, you’ll only need to schedule one surgery and will only have one recovery period, rather than two separate procedures and recoveries.
Another benefit, is when you combine a tummy tuck with liposuction, you can maximize your body contouring results in a way that really isn’t possible with either procedure on its own. In most cases, excess fat and loose skin go hand-in-hand, so treating both of these common cosmetic concerns at the same time is often the most efficient and effective approach.
