Do you think that a tummy tuck may be the best solution for your belly bulge? A tummy tuck is a very popular body contouring procedure, but patients interested in achieving a tighter and more toned midsection often ask their surgeon – “Can liposuction be combined with a tummy tuck.”
Can Liposuction Be Combined With A Tummy Tuck?
Yes, liposuction can be safely combined with a tummy tuck because they are complementary procedures. However, it’s important to discuss possible risks and complications with your plastic surgeon.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is designed to remove excess abdominal skin and fat, and tighten the underlying muscles. In some cases, patients that have a lot of fat in the midsection may need to do liposuction as well to properly tone the area.
The goal of liposuction is to reshape and refine the body by removing stubborn pockets of fat, which are resistant to diet and exercise. Different types of liposuction can be performed including tumescent lipo, power-assisted lipo, VASER lipo, and ultrasound-assisted lipo.
Benefits Of Combining Liposuction With A Tummy Tuck
Combining liposuction and a tummy tuck provides more comprehensive body contouring results in the midsection, because liposuction can precisely sculpt the area.
Patients that have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, as well as muscle laxity, can address all these issues by undergoing both liposuction and abdominoplasty. Doing both procedures together is also beneficial since it requires only one recovery period.
