Lipoabdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that combines a tummy tuck and liposuction on the abdomen. Most individuals who choose this procedure have excess skin and unwanted fat in their abdominal area, and this combination procedure is an effective way to achieve a smaller waistline overall.
A tummy tuck, which is also referred to as an abdominoplasty, is mainly administered to remove excess skin, which will make the stomach appear flatter. Many women who have gained weight or had children will have weakened abdominal muscles and skin that is stretched out. A tummy tuck is effective because it reduces the circumference of the waistline and removes loose skin on the abdomen while also tightening the underlying muscles. Although a tummy tuck makes the waist look thinner, when it is combined with liposuction, you can achieve maximum results.
Who are Good Candidates?
With most cosmetic surgeries, such as a lipoabdominoplasty, it important that individuals do not smoke because this can slow the healing process. You should also have realistic goals and a positive outlook about the outcomes of the procedure and the recovery. Many of our patients are not able to achieve a tight and toned waistline with diet and exercise alone, so they achieve their desired results with a lipoabdominoplasty. Of course, good candidates are also in good overall health.
