Achieve Outstanding Results With A Tummy Tuck and Liposuction

These days, some of your most used services come in bundles. We bundle our home and car insurance and our cable and internet, but have you ever considered combining your plastic surgeries? Patients all over the world are realizing that it just makes more sense. If you’re going to undergo one plastic surgery, why not take advantage of the opportunity and invest in another one at the same time? Combining plastic surgeries reduces your recovery time, is more cost-effective, and provides exciting and dramatic results.

Two surgeries people love to combine are tummy tuck and liposuction. Together they’re called a lipoabdominoplasty. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the combination procedure “provides excellent patient outcomes with a low complication rate.” What better results could one hope for than safe and effective?

These two surgeries are among the most common plastic surgeries in the United States, and the combination of the two is growing rapidly in popularity. To understand everything Lipoabdominoplasty has to offer, you must first learn about each of the individual procedures.

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery used to improve the appearance of a patient’s midsection. Our skin is tender and sensitive and gives easily to stretching. When a woman’s body stretches due to pregnancy or weight gain, or she begins to notice the quality and elasticity of her skin change due to age, it can result in loose skin that can no longer bounce back to its once youthful state. Some women hide their bodies from view when they can’t live with their new appearance, but others take control of their looks by investing in this surgery.

There are several different types of tummy tucks, and they are generally differentiated by the type of incision made and the volume of tissue that is removed. During the typical procedure, the surgeon cuts away excess skin and fat and tightens the abdominal muscles to create a smooth and toned appearance. Once that’s complete, the patient’s midsection is stitched back together, and the recovery process begins. It can take six to eight weeks to return to your normal routine after your surgery, and within three to six months, most patients have recovered fully from their surgery.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an extremely common fat removal surgery during which a plastic surgeon uses suction to remove excess fat from targeted areas of a patient’s body. This procedure is ideal for areas of the body where exercise and diet have not been able to make a difference.

You can get liposuction in almost any area of your body. From your rear end to your face, if you’ve got an unwanted pocket of fat, we may be able to help you remove it. Some of the most common liposuction areas are the buttocks, love handles, upper arms, and abdomen.

Both tummy tuck and liposuction procedures have the goal of removing unwanted tissue. However, neither are strictly weight loss solutions. Patients looking for a quick weight loss surgery or who have significant weight to lose are not good candidates for this combination procedure. Those who undergo these surgeries should be in good physical shape and will have tried other traditional weight loss solutions to eliminate their pockets of unwanted fat.

Why Should You Do Them Together?

Opting for two surgeries at one time reduces the number of procedures required and minimizes recovery time. But there is nothing more exciting than witnessing a patient as they take in the dramatic and exciting results they get from this combination of surgeries. Helping our patients see their true beauty is one of the most joyful parts of our work.

Choosing a Surgeon

Even once you’ve decided you want a combined liposuction and tummy tuck procedure, you still have to make important choices. The most important is the selection of your plastic surgeon. Several factors go into choosing the ideal plastic surgeon to care for you. First and foremost, you want to work with an experienced plastic surgeon with a proven track record for performing the surgery you want. But another essential factor in choosing the right plastic surgeon is a great doctor-patient relationship. At Florida Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we set patient care as our top priority.

Some patients come to us knowing they want a specific plastic surgery like a lipoabdominoplasty or breast augmentation. But many more patients come to us with an issue or area of concern on their bodies, and we guide them toward the best treatment. You don’t have to have all the answers to book an appointment with us. As a practice, it is our job to partner with patients just like you to find a solution to their concerns.
