When beginning your research into plastic surgery, this question often comes up: how do you know if liposuction or tummy tuck is right for you? The answer depends on your personal goals and body. Although liposuction and tummy tuck are used to treat cosmetic issues with the abdomen, the procedures serve different purposes.
Liposuction is a less invasive procedure that targets and removes unwanted fat to achieve better body contours. It is not a weight loss procedure, but liposuction can help remove the stubborn abdominal fat that does not respond to diet and exercise.
Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate sagging skin, address stretch marks, and tighten abdominal muscles. Many women choose tummy tuck after becoming mothers to help return their bodies to their pre-pregnancy state as part of a mommy makeover. Both men and women benefit from tummy tuck after a significant weight loss has left the abdominal region sagging with unattractive contours.
For a complete abdominal rejuvenation, Dr. Hayley Brown may combine liposuction and tummy tuck.
