Confused Between A Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?

Do you need a tummy tuck or will a liposuction help? Or should you opt for a combination procedure? These are not easy questions to answer. Here is a quick snapshot on both procedures, so you can make an informed decision.

There are three main problems most of us face with our tummy at one time or the other and may look for a treatment:

  • Excessive skin

  • Stubborn fat deposits

  • Separated abdominal muscles


Liposuction is a procedure which will remove the fat from under your skin. This is the layer directly beneath your skin and you can know how much by simply pinching the skin on your tummy.

If you have a tight abdomen, liposuction will be more beneficial for you since it will leave the skin around your midsection tighter.

In case you have loose skin hanging over your abdominal area, liposuction won’t do much for you. At the end of the procedure, it may in fact cause rippling of the skin and irregular contours.

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps with eliminating excessive fat and skin as well as tightening of the abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck has been part of the mommy makeover procedure which has helped women across the globe regain their pre-pregnancy bodies.

Additionally, this is a helpful procedure for all those who have lost a considerable amount of weight within a short time span.

Since 2000, the number of people who have opted for tummy tucks has increased to 87% according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Even though most cosmetic surgery procedures are primarily for aesthetic enhancements, tummy tuck helps with medical benefits as well. Women can get relief from stress urinary incontinence or SUI with a tummy tuck if they have not already undergone a C-section.

Weakened abdominal muscles lead to lordosis or swayback and a tummy tuck procedure helps tighten these muscles improving the posture and providing better support to the spine. Tummy tuck is also used as a combination procedure in other medical corrections like repairing ventral hernia.

There are unlimited aesthetic as well as medical benefits of the tummy tuck procedure. If you are considering it, meet your surgeon to know all the rewards as well as risks well before booking yourself to undergo the surgery.
