Combining Abdominoplasty with Liposuction for Dramatic Results
Both pregnancy and weight loss are great reasons to rejoice. They can bring about many positive changes in your life. At the same time, they can have some negative effects on your body. For example, pregnancy or losing a lot of weight may leave you with loose skin, especially along the abdomen. Even if you follow a good diet and exercise routine, you still could be left with loose skin. For both men and women, abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a great way to get rid of that excess skin and to make your body look and feel firmer. But if you are dealing with some excess fat in addition to loose skin, you may want to consider combining abdominoplasty with liposuction for even better results.
There’s something that people don’t always understand about a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is designed to improve the way that your muscles and skin look around the midsection. However, it’s not designed to remove much excess fat. This is why many people will mix and abdominoplasty with liposuction. This allows you to greatly enhance the appearance of your midsection, giving you the contour and definition that you want.
When liposuction and a tummy tuck are done hand-in-hand, you are left with precise, dramatic results. It allows you to achieve significant definition while at the same time getting rid of that loose skin. Patients are able to get a flatter, toned and sleeker shape. This is true even around the waistline, where a lot of people hold onto fat even after they’ve lost some weight.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Shapiro can look at the area that you want treated and discuss with you realistic options for achieving your body contouring goals. Combining abdominoplasty with liposuction may be just what you need to achieve your goals for your body.
It’s important that you are realistic coming into the procedure because although a mixture of a tummy tuck and liposuction can create some amazing results, there are also some limits to what it can do. The more that you understand about what the procedure does, the happier you are going to be with the results once the procedure is done and you have fully recovered.
