Liposuction and tummy tuck are two highly effective cosmetic surgeries that help attain a smoother and flatter abdomen. They are typically recommended for those men and women who are struggling with stubborn fat and loose skin around the abdominal area. This type of fat usually doesn’t respond to any form of diet and/or exercise.
For those who are looking to eliminate excess tummy fat and improve the overall body contour without a long recovery period, liposuction might be a suitable choice. The procedure is proven to be quite effective in removing stubborn fat pockets, especially in the abdominal area. Patients often also undergo liposuction for getting rid of excessive fat in other body areas such as thighs, hips, and arms. A vital thing to understand about liposuction is that while it can eliminate excess skin, it doesn’t do much for skin tightening.
Like any other cosmetic surgery, liposuction also requires some recovery time. However, the recovery period is much shorter and simpler when compared to the tummy tuck procedure.
The majority of our liposuction patients report returning to work within a few days or a week after their surgery. Liposuction candidates are usually below 40 years of age and do not have major skin laxity issues.
