Can Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck Be Performed at the Same Time?

Are your abs ready for summer? For many of us, even endless crunches won’t be enough to restore a tight, flat abdominal area. If you have loose, stretched out skin, separated abdominal muscles, or excess fat, you may need a tummy tuck. Liposuction is the perfect complement to a tummy tuck for getting your body ready for a day at the beach.

Do I Need Liposuction, a Tummy Tuck, or Both?

Get your body ready for summer with liposuction, a tummy tuck, or both.
• Liposuction Alone- Opt for only liposuction if you have a little excess abdominal fat, but no loose skin and no abdominal muscle separation. Liposuction on its own can remove unwanted fat and shape the abdomen.
• Tummy Tuck Alone- A tummy tuck on its own may be right for you if you have loose skin or muscle separation without excess fat. A tummy tuck can restore a flat appearance to the abdomen by tightening abdominal muscles and removing excess skin.
• Liposuction + Tummy Tuck- Choose both liposuction and a tummy tuck if you want to remove skin and fat. This combination procedure shapes and sculpts the entire middle, restoring a tight, flat appearance. A tummy tuck with liposuction is ideal after pregnancy or weight loss.

Liposuction + Tummy Tuck- Why Should I Combine These Two Treatments?

If you’re thinking about a tummy tuck, liposuction makes an excellent complement. These two procedures work together, removing unwanted fat, tightening up abdominal muscles, and reshaping the entire area. By adding liposuction to your tummy tuck you can get a tight, flat tummy while eliminating love handles and reshaping the waist. A tummy tuck alone can reshape the abdomen, but when you add liposuction we can shape and contour your whole middle, front to back and side to side.

Can I Get Both a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction at the Same Time?

Who has time for downtime? By combining your tummy tuck with liposuction, you can minimize downtime and maximize results. We can often pair these treatments together, with a single trip to the operating room, to save time and money while ensuring your best results.
