Liposuction versus tummy tuck

Correcting a protruding stomach can reshape the body, however it is important to choose the correct procedure.

The main considerations are;

– Has the patient had children or a significant weight loss.

– Is there any loose skin on the abdomen?

– Does the excess form an overhang or “apron”?

– Is the “belly button” misshapen, or sitting unusually low?

Any of, or a combination of the above, usually indicates that an abdominoplasty would give a better result than liposuction alone.

Liposuction alone will give a good result if;

– The patient has good skin tone.

– There are no stretch marks.

– The patient is not obese.

It is possible to do a combination of both procedures, reshaping other areas of the body with liposuction.

The following areas can be treated with liposuction;
– Abdomen, hips, back arms, thighs, knees, calves ankles and chin.
