03 Nov A Tummy Tuck With Liposuction, Does It Really Work?
Loose, sagging abdominal skin is a common complaint for most women after the childbearing years, and a tummy tuck with liposuction (lipo) can be the answer to your prayers. Indeed, very few women do not have changes to their abdomen that cannot be “fixed” with diet and exercise. It’s a matter of the skin having been stretched and nothing other than a tummy tuck will have a reasonable effect on it.
Combining Tummy Tucks and Liposuction
In the past, the tummy tuck and liposuction procedures were done separately, however today, doctors have discovered that the two together work hand in hand to deliver the kind of amazing results women desire.
Most surgeons will liposuction the abdominal wall in its entirety, and then perform the repair of the muscles by tightening them up. Finally the extra skin is excised and the recontouring occurs, leaving a flat stomach behind.
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Recovery
For a full abdominoplasty along with liposuction, a patient should plan on a 3 – 4 week recovery period, and helping a patient manage their recovery is a primary goal of the plastic surgery team. The extent of the muscle repair will gauge how long your recovery period is. It is of primary importance that the patient take care to not disturb the repairing muscles, or a second surgery could result.
