Should I Get Liposuction With My Tummy Tuck?

Think of Tummy Tuck and Liposuction as complimentary to eachother…a symbiotic relationship. Each brings their own unique advantages. Together, they can produce dramatic results in Body Contouring.

In this post, I will tell you what Tummy Tuck and Liposuction is and why you might want to consider getting both of these Body Contouring procedures done at the same time.

What Are The Major Benefits Of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Tummy Tuck is one of the most efficient Body Contouring procedures. It is specifically designed to tighten, tone, and slim your midsection. Your unwanted fat, excess hanging skin, and stretchmarks will be surgically removed.

If you are also dealing with separated abdominal muscles (some people are born this way, pregnancy can also cause separated abdominal muscles) Dr. Avi Islur can meticulously suture your abdominal muscles together to get rid of the bulge so you can achieve a much tighter and flatter tummy.

Exercising and healthy eating is very important but it will not fully correct muscle separation. The only way to bring your abdominal muscles completely together is through proper muscle suturing (rectus plication) techniques via Tummy Tuck surgery. Therefore, if you want to achieve a tighter, flatter, toned midsection without the bulge caused by muscle separation, Tummy Tuck is the most effective way to achieve it.

Dr. Avi Islur offers 3 different types of Tummy Tuck procedures. 1) Mini Tummy Tuck, 2) Full Tummy Tuck, 3) Fleur De Lys Tummy Tuck. All 3 of these options are clearly defined on our Tummy Tuck page if you’re interested in learning more about them.

What Are The Benefits Of Getting Liposuction With My Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Liposuction gives Dr. Avi Islur the ability to meticulously sculpt and further define your Tummy Tuck results. Liposuction gives you the ability to achieve highly defined and customized results.

LipoSculpting (also called Hi-Def Lipo) is an advanced Liposuction technique specifically designed to sculpt your muscle definition even further.

How is Liposuction performed? Tiny incisions will be made to specific areas of your midsection and your unwanted fat will be suctioned out with a hand held Liposuction device (a cannula) it looks like a very thin tube.

Do I Need A Tummy Tuck? Or Should I Just Get Liposuction?

This is entirely up to you. It really depends on the results you want to achieve. If you want more dramatic results, getting a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction performed at the same time is the best option for you.

Think of Liposuction as deflating a balloon.

Depending on the extent of your fat removal via Liposuction, you may be left with some hanging loose skin. Why? Because Liposuction removes your unwanted fat, but Liposuction does not remove any loose, hanging skin or stretchmarks.

This is where the power of Liposuction and Tummy Tuck go hand in hand because Tummy Tuck removes excess skin, unwanted stretchmarks, and excess fat.

Liposuction is a phenomenal way to get rid of your stubborn fat and it also gives Dr. Avi Islur the ability to meticulously sculpt and further define your contour. Liposuction further defines and sculpts your body contour and muscle definition and takes your Tummy Tuck results to the next level.

How Do I Know If I Need Both?

Every patient is 100% unique. Your Tummy Tuck will be custom tailored according to your desired aesthetic results, existing measurements, and your unique surgical requirements. During your initial consultation with Dr. Avi Islur, you will discuss your desired aesthetic results in detail, he will assess your midsection, and together you will determine the best surgical option to achieve optimal results.
