Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?

When patients aren’t happy with their abdomen, whether it’s a pooch from childbirth or pockets of fat that won’t go away, they wonder if liposuction or a tummy tuck is the thing to correct the problem. While both procedures shape and sculpt the abdominal area, they go about it in vastly different ways.

body contouringLiposuction
As America becomes bigger, so does liposuction. Last year, it was once again the most popular cosmetic surgery in the country. Liposuction targets excess pockets of fat such as love handles, spare tires, and muffin tops. Not a weight loss procedure, the ideal candidate for liposuction should be within their ideal body weight and have tried both diet and exercise to get rid of stubborn areas of fat.

Tummy tuck
Unlike liposuction, a tummy tuck doesn’t remove abdominal fat. A tummy tuck removes loose, handing abdominal skin and tightens the underlying muscles to re-contour the abdomen.

When trying to decide between the two procedures, the good news is you don’t have to! If you have issues with both excess fat and poor skin laxity in the abdominal area, Dr. Kimmel can perform both liposuction and a tummy tuck as part of your body-contouring plan.

So, if you’re unhappy with your tummy, let’s talk about what we can do to give you the contour you want. Call Dr. Kimmel at Keystone Surgery Center in Pottsville or Hazleton today.
