26 Sep Great Things Happen When Liposuction and Tummy Tuck Are Combined
If you’re having trouble with your midsection – especially after extreme weight loss or pregnancy – you may want to learn more about your options. Many women choose to get both a liposuction and tummy tuck as part of a Mommy Makeover. A thorough and open discussion with your plastic surgeon will help you decide whether to combine the procedures or to do them separately.
Why Get Both a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?
If you gain a lot of weight – such as during pregnancy – and then lose the weight, you will likely be left with loose skin and excess fat. To address both problems, many women choose to have both a tummy tuck and liposuction performed at the same time. Many times this is referred to as a “mommy makeover.”
The mommy makeover, sometimes combined with a breast lift or augmentation, eliminates both problems at once without the need to have separate surgeries. The tummy tuck often enhances the liposuction, making your stomach as flat as possible. For this reason, it is often more effective to have both procedures done at the same time.
What to Know About Lipo and Tummy Tucks
Having both procedures done at the same time is done quite often. However, the aspects of extended anesthesia come with risks, so it’s important to discuss this with your plastic surgeon. However, most plastic surgeons perform tummy tucks and liposuction together all the time as part of Mommy Makeover packages and are experienced enough to carry out these procedures with no complications.
