Are You Torn Between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck?

“I have done everything to make my tummy appear flat and firmer but none of those things are actually working” is one of the most common statements we hear from men and women during consultations here at our Pottsville plastic surgery practice.

By and large, these patients are often torn between getting a liposuction or a tummy tuck. Each procedure has its own set of benefits and limitations and it all depends on your needs, preferences, and the outcomes you have in mind. If you’re on the same page as these patients, read on below to finally figure out which procedure suits you best!

When to Choose Liposuction

There are various types of liposuction out there but their goal is one and the same, that is to remove excess fats and skin tissues that cling to your abdominal area despite following a strict diet and exercise routine.

Liposuction is ideal if your skin has good elasticity. However, if you end up with loose, hanging skin after the excess fat has been removed, you might also want to consider a tummy tuck in conjunction with liposuction because the latter only removes fat but does not tighten skin. 

If you’re not aware of it yet, liposuction does more than remove excess fat in the abdominal area. It is also effective in reducing the appearance of pockets of fat in the back, arms, neck, hips, buttocks, thighs, ankles and breasts (that is in males suffering from abnormal breast enlargement).

When to Choose a Tummy Tuck

As mentioned earlier, a tummy tuck procedure (also known as abdominoplasty) is suited for individuals with loose skin and muscles in the abdominal area. It has also been shown to be effective in removing stretch marks and improving the appearance of flabby abdominal skin following massive weight loss and pregnancy.

Are you still confused between the two? Get in touch with us for an initial consultation and we’ll help you figure out. Apart from a tummy tuck and liposuction, we offer several body-contouring options that you might want to look into depending on your cosmetic needs and preferences.
