Liposuction and tummy tuck are two different surgical procedures that seek to contour the abdomen. During your consultation with your surgeon, you will learn the differences between these procedures and which is ideal for you and your goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides tummy tuck and liposuction to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
This procedure involves removal of excess fat and loose skin from the abdomen, as well as the repair to any underlying muscles that have been stretched or torn during pregnancy or weight gain. Tummy tuck surgery is a much more intensive procedure that will require more recovery and downtime.
Liposuction utilizes a thin cannula to suction out fat from treatment areas. This procedure only removes fat and does not address any loose skin or muscle tightening, which can severely affect your results. If the abdominal muscles are stretched or separated, the skin may not lay flat and tight following liposuction. This procedure is more ideal for patients seeking to address small areas of localized fat versus treatment areas that have lost skin laxity.
Which is Better for Me?
It is important to note that tummy tuck and liposuction are solutions for reducing fat in targeted areas, and are not weight loss procedures. You will need to exercise and keep a healthy diet to continue enjoying your results. Tummy tuck will also require a longer period of rest and recovery. If you are seeking to reduce small areas of stubborn fat that still have good skin laxity, liposuction is likely a good option for you. For a tight, flat abdomen that requires removal of loose, sagging skin, tummy tuck is recommended.
