If you have excess fat deposits or excess abdominal skin which can either be because of giving birth or rapid weight loss or any other reason, there are treatments available that can solve your worries. You can opt for treatments like liposuction or tummy tuck, let us help you in choosing the most suitable treatment for you.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive and effective treatment used for removing abdominal fat and improving the contours of the body. It does not involves a long recovery period as a tummy tuck does. If you don’t want a long downtime, liposuction is your way to go. Although, it does require a recovery period but it is not as longer and uncomfortable as recovering from tummy tuck. You can experience swelling or bruising after the procedure but these side effects will be subsided within a week or two. You will have to take plenty of rest for one or two weeks. You will be given a list of instructions from your doctor, you need to follow them for a speedy recovery. Liposuction can remove stubborn fat deposits effectively in one session. Liposuction can be performed on various body areas like arms, hips, thighs etc. liposuction does not help in tightening the skin but removing excess fat.
Laser liposuction is also an effective treatment option for those who are scared of cuts and stitches.
If you want to get a drastic change, then tummy tuck is more suitable choice. Tummy tuck is an invasive procedure as compared to tummy tuck. Tummy tuck removes excessive abdominal skin and also helps to tighten the skin. Tummy tuck can cause a visible large scar, it is an important factor to consider before undergoing a tummy tuck. However, the scar will fade but it may take more than an year.
Tummy tuck can remove excessive fat deposits and lose skin from both middle and lower abdomen. It can help in tightening and toning muscles and minimize the tummy bulge. A longer recovery period is associated with tummy tuck as compared to liposuction treatment. You will require a month or more to be fully recovered from the procedure. Although, side effects like swelling may take more than two or three months to subside completely. If you have strong abdominal muscles, you can recover quickly. You are not supposed to take part in strenuous activities but light exercise can help in healing.
Your surgeon may recommend you to undergo a combination of both treatments to get the best results possible. As liposuction can help in body contouring and tummy tuck can help in skin and muscle tightening. Fill in the online form to get a free consultation with one of our plastic surgeons.
