The skin in your tummy is susceptible to changes happening within your body. This is why your abdomen may appear bloated, aesthetically deformed, and filled with excess fat and skin as your body starts to embrace the natural process of aging. The same thing is true for women after pregnancy or if you had massive weight loss. It is not surprising therefore that the abdomen is one of the most problematic body areas that often requires a surgical remedy.
In the surgical world, liposuction (lipoplasty) and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) are two of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Liposuction is intended to sculpt the body through removal of extra fat, while tummy tuck surgery is intended to remove excess skin and tighten loose tummy muscles. Used in tandem, Lipoabdominoplasty can greatly enhance your results.
The primary objective of lipo surgeries is to improve the body form/shape (especially tummy area). Abdominoplasty’s main objective, on the other hand, is to flatten and smoothen the tummy skin. The two surgeries can individually provide remarkable aesthetic improvements to your tummy – depending on the specific concern you have. Now imagine if your concern involves a bulging abdomen that is filled with excess fat and sagging skin. Now imagine combining the surgical power and effect of liposuction and tummy tuck.
Lipoabdominoplasty Surgery is exactly what its name entails: a combo of lipo and tummy tuck procedures. The two surgeries are merged into a single operation to provide the best possible cosmetic results to your abdomen. The tummy is sculpted, through liposuction, to its ideal state by treating stubborn fats. At the same time, your tummy will be made firmer, smoother and flatter by treating loose skin through tummy tuck. Lipoabdominoplasty is sometimes referred to as a new kind of tummy tuck. But really, it is more of an advanced surgical technique intended to facilitate convenient enhancements to your multiple abdomen issues. It brings about the best results of two proven effective surgeries. That said, be mindful of the skill level of the plastic surgeon to perform this surgery on you.
