One of the biggest misconceptions that patients have about tummy tucks is that they are a body contouring procedure. However, a tummy tuck is just done to help reposition abdominal muscles after pregnancy, and lift, tighten, and remove excess skin around the abdomen. If, however, you have some excess, stubborn fat around your abdomen that you want to be removed, then Dr. Gregory Wiener may recommend a tummy tuck with liposuction. Let’s take a closer look at this surgical procedure.
Why Get a Tummy Tuck With Lipo?
Sometimes after extreme weight loss or pregnancy, your abdomen cannot only have excess, sagging skin on it but it can also store stubborn fat. If it seems like you cannot only get a taut stomach but you can’t get rid of excess fat, then a tummy tuck with lipo may be right for you. Not only will we be able to surgically lift and tighten your abdomen, but we will also scrape out excess fat and suction it out with a device called a cannula— leaving you with the stomach you’ve always wanted (or used to have).
Why Is It Popular?
One of the reasons (other than the amazing results patients get) that a tummy tuck with liposuction is so popular is because it’s basically a two for one. With just one surgery, we can perform two separate procedures— which gives you two amazing results while only having to recover once.
Whether weight loss or pregnancy have left you feeling self-conscious about your abdomen, it may be time to consider a tummy tuck with liposuction from Dr. Gregory Wiener. During your initial consultation, we will help determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for this dual procedure.
