Mommy Makeover Dilemma: Tummy Tuck or Liposuction

If you’re in the Newport Beach area, then you may be interested in a Mommy Makeover by John Park MD Plastic Surgery. His comprehensive approach ensures that patients are informed about the procedures and set up for the likeliness of satisfactory results. A Mommy Makeover is the all-inclusive approach to restoring a woman’s body to her pre-baby best. A patient who elects this process is sure to walk away looking and feeling absolutely beautiful.

The Decisions of a Mommy Makeover

There are multiple decisions involved with a Mommy Makeover. However, one of the most common choices centers on liposuction or a tummy tuck. Sometimes, patients are unaware of the difference. Essentially, a tummy tuck focuses more on repairing loose skin and muscle while liposuction removes pockets of fat in select areas.

While people associate liposuction with just the stomach, liposuction can actually be done on various parts of the body and is not limited to just the abdomen. A tummy tuck is designed to repair the skin around the abdomen but liposuction is routinely added to create even more beautiful results.

How Do You Know Which is Right for You?

The best way to know if you should choose a tummy tuck or liposuction will be answered during a consultation. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
• Do you have localized fat?
• Are you concerned about areas other than your stomach?
• Do you have loose skin?
• Are your abdominal muscles stretched and loose?

Going over the answers to these questions will help you identify which choice is right for you. Keep in mind that a tummy tuck will leave scarring, but liposuction will not repair sagging skin. Understanding that sometimes one procedure is better under some circumstances will help you narrow down which option is right for you. Both procedures are often done together to achieve optimal results!
