Benefits of Liposuction with Tummy Tuck Surgery

Excess fat deposits often trouble different areas of the body such as the upper arms, flanks, abdomen, male breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Despite rigorous diet and various forms of exercise, you might find it impossible to reduce the excess fat in the abdominal region. Liposuction provided in combination with tummy tuck surgery is an effective solution when it comes to removing abdominal fat and achieving your cosmetic goals. This article looks into the benefits of combining liposuction with tummy tuck surgery.

Liposuction can only remove excess fat, but the procedure cannot get rid of muscle bulge or loose, damaged skin in the abdominal area. A tummy tuck can bring a dramatic improvement in appearance. It is a procedure performed to remove extra abdominal skin and flatten bulging abdominal muscles. To provide a more contoured mid section, liposuction can be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck followed by liposuction can remove excess fat and also tighten the underlying muscles and skin. Liposuction combined with tummy tuck surgery is what is provided in ‘Mommy makeover’ that successfully corrects the protuberant tummy of a woman who has had multiple pregnancies.

Benefits that You Stand to Gain

By undergoing these procedures, patients have the following benefits:

• Attain a more balanced figure and youthful appearance
• Attain a flat, firm stomach
• Get rid of excess, loose skin
• Improve the appearance of stretch marks
• Long lasting results
• Save money and time since you don’t need to come back for a second procedure
• Minimal recovery period
• Improved self-esteem and confidence

To perform the procedure, plastic surgeons may use different techniques. Different energy based liposuction techniques are available today, from laser assisted to ultrasonic liposuction methods. Ultrasonic liposuction using UltraShape can provide excellent results for patients. BodyTite is the latest advanced technology for cellulite reduction with state-of-the-art features that make it second to none.

The time required to carry out the procedure and the recovery time varies according to the patient and the complexity of the area to be treated. The advancements in plastic surgery techniques have helped to minimize the risks and complications associated with the surgery. Pain and discomfort are minimal and so are instances of bleeding and bruising.


  1. One has to be careful of where they are getting their surgery done from and also on the credibility and the experience of the surgeon. Cheaper options are not the best options available for such surgeries. If properly done these can be very effective and help women get the preferred and the desired look easily. Some research and caution are needed before the decision of such a surgery is taken.

  2. Both procedures may be performed if the patient really wants to have trim abs. As you can imagine, once the extra fat has been removed, there’ll be sagging extra skin on the area where the fat was located before. To counter the sagging, a tummy tuck may be performed on the patient after.
