12 Jul Liposuction or Tummy Tuck, How Do You Choose?
The midsection is one of the hardest parts to contour and tone on the body. You can do all the right things – diet and exercise – and still be left with a tummy area that you find less than desirable. Luckily, John Park MD Plastic Surgery offers body contouring procedures for just this circumstance. Both liposuction and a tummy tuck are often used to shape the abdominal region to give you that sculpted hour-glass figure you’ve been trying to achieve. Each provides beautiful lasting results, but it’s important to note that they yield very different results. So, how do you know which procedure is right for you?
Eliminate Stubborn Fat With Liposuction
Liposuction is often combined with other body contouring treatments as a means to put the finishing touches on your figure to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Lipo removes unwanted fatty deposits that have proven to be resistant to even your best efforts at diet and exercise. It should not be used as a form of weight loss as you should be at a stable and healthy weight prior to undergoing liposuction. It’s ideal for women who have good skin elasticity since it does not remove loose excess skin but instead smooths and tones the area being treated.
Trim Away Excess Fat With A Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is a great contouring option for women who are left with skin that has lost its elasticity and has been overstretched. This often occurs following childbirth or extreme weight loss. A tummy tuck effectively removes this excess skin to give you a flat contoured midsection. This procedure also helps to tighten and repair the underlying abdominal muscles that have become weakened creating a toned appearance.
Optimum Body Contouring With Lipo and a Tummy Tuck
When combined, liposuction and a tummy tuck can produce optimum contouring results. The two procedures work together to trim away excess skin and suction away fatty deposits giving you a completely sculpted midsection. By combining the procedures, you’re able to reduce costs and eliminate an extra recovery period. You may also wish to add a body lift or arm lift with your liposuction and tummy tuck procedures to achieve full body contouring results.
