Reasons to Add Liposuction to Your Tummy Tuck

Combining treatments is a powerful way to maximize results from plastic surgery. With just one trip to the operating room and a single recovery period, you can enjoy the results from multiple procedures. A combination of liposuction and tummy tuck offers many benefits including:

  • Address Skin, Muscle, and Fat in a Single Procedure – What are your biggest tummy complaints? A tummy tuck can address loose or separated abdominal muscles and excess skin while liposuction handles stubborn fat on the tummy and the surrounding areas. A combination approach is the best way to address all your abdominal complaints and give you the contours you want in a single surgery.
  • Skip the Drains – Adding liposuction to a tummy tuck allows for a layered suturing technique. This specialized technique helps hold the abdominal tissues together and reduces post-surgical fluid collection. Less fluid means that post-surgical drains aren’t necessary. Recovery without drains is faster and more comfortable.
  • Maximize Results – Abdominoplasty and liposuction work together, producing a synergistic result much greater than either procedure on its own. Dr. Stanton can shape and sculpt your entire core to perfection by using these two complementary techniques together.
  • Shape Other Areas Too – Why limit your results to just the tummy? Liposuction can contour other areas of the body, too. Slim down your waist, eliminate bra rolls, say goodbye to love handles.

Dr. Stanton can help you decide if liposuction will enhance the results of your tummy tuck procedure.
