If you’ve been looking at your mid-section and aren’t happy with what you are seeing. You still have time to consider body contouring around your abdominal region before bathing suit season is upon us. Don’t know whether liposuction or tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) is the right treatment for your specific needs and/or goals?
Both liposuction and tummy tucks are two popular cosmetic procedures that restore a more toned, youthful-looking figure, but are intended to correct different issues. The abdominal procedure you and Dr. Magassy choose will depend on your body and the end result you are wanting.
If your concerns are limited solely to the accumulation of diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits in the stomach region, liposuction may be the best option as it is designed to remove fatty tissues from various areas of the body. However, if your concerns include loose, excess skin and/or stretching of the abdominal wall (with or without the presence of stubborn fat buildups), tummy tuck surgery may be a better choice. Tummy tucks are performed to eliminate extra skin and tighten abdominal muscles that have not gone away with both diet and exercise, and if needed, it can involve some degree of liposuction too.
Ultimately, both liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can be excellent plastic surgery options for qualified candidates. The best way to know if you are a good candidate for liposuction or tummy tucks is to discuss your wants and need with a Top-Rated, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Magassy of Plastic Surgery Associates, PC, will be able to address any questions and concerns during your consultation and decide which procedure is right for you.
