People who have trouble getting their stomach in shape through diet and exercise alone often consider a tummy tuck to tune up their abdomen. Many factors can leave the stomach looking worse for wear.

Whether weight loss, pregnancy or aging have left you with excess abdominal skin or a protruding stomach, a tummy tuck can correct these concerns for a toned appearance.

What a Tummy Tuck without Lipo Can Do

In a traditional tummy tuck, a plastic surgeon removes any loose, excess skin from the abdomen and, if necessary, repairs separated abdominal muscles. A traditional tummy tuck can offer beautiful results, restoring muscle tone for a firmer, flatter midsection.

If you’re in good overall health but are frustrated by persistent stomach flab or the pooched appearance that can occur after pregnancy, a tummy tuck without lipo may offer you an excellent outcome.

Lipoabdominoplasty may be suitable for some people, but a tummy tuck without lipo can still translate into great results.

Combining Lipo with a Tummy Tuck

Another option for people who want to address loose stomach skin and pockets of fatty tissue is a tummy tuck with liposuction. In a lipoabdominoplasty, liposuction eliminates subcutaneous fat from both the upper and lower abdomen and the hips.

Combining liposuction with a tummy tuck can be helpful for people who have fat deposits in the harder to reach areas that a tummy tuck alone can’t correct. Once liposuction has been done, the plastic surgeon removes excess skin and tissue and tightens the abdominal muscles for refined, precise results.

What’s Right for You?

The best way to determine which type of tummy tuck can help you get the results you’d like is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing abdominoplasty procedures.
