These days, everybody seems more cautious about his or her appearance and tries everything that is possible to get desired appearance and looks. Besides facial appearance body contours are also important to consider and when it comes to body shape and contour, the most common problem among people is having bulging tummy. You might have saggy abdomen with excessive fat even if you have normal weight and you are regular about your diet and exercise. In this situation, the causes behind protruding tummy are aging, pregnancy and excessive weight loss or gain. Frustrated of exercise and diet but gaining no improvement, people often want a permanent solution to their problem and make liposuction or tummy tuck their choice. Here we will also discuss the combination of both the procedures.
Liposuction is the surgical procedure that removes excessive fat from certain areas of body and gives wonderful results for areas having tight skin like hips, saddle bags and flanks. On the other hand abdomen is such area of body that loses elasticity as a result of aging, pregnancy or weight gain. In this situation if fat is removed through liposuction, skin will not be tightened that will result in saggy abdomen. The people who want to undergo less invasive procedure and do not demand perfect results feel ok with liposuction.
When it comes to tummy tuck surgery, it is an effective procedure for removal of excessive fat on tummy because in this procedure not only excessive fat but excessive skin is also removed. Therefore the procedure also addresses sagginess of abdomen. Furthermore, muscles are also tightened in this surgery and if required, new belly button is also formed. This procedure is more invasive but gives better results than liposuction.
Both the procedures – liposuction and tummy tuck – have their own benefits but if you consider their combination, the results are far better. During the combined procedure of liposuction and tummy tuck – known as lipoabdominoplasty – firstly, excess fat is removed using the procedure of liposuction and then excessive skin and abdominal tissues are removed through tummy tuck. Liposuction is mostly done tummy tucks to remove excess of fat from sides and hips. Unlike the outcomes of both the procedures alone, results of the combination of these procedures are more effective. The most important benefit of the procedure is that, it causes fewer side effects. One main purpose of introducing this procedure is to reduce the surgical trauma.
These days, combination of liposuction and tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is more popular and frequently done. It is also important to mention here that the removal of amount of fat and tissues removed during the procedure really matters because removal of large amounts can lead to severe side effects and complications. If you have selected right cosmetic surgeon having experience in this field, you will obviously recommend the results.
