Criteria to choose in between the tummy tuck and liposuction

If you want to get rid of unwanted fat in your abdominal area and you are considering the help of cosmetic surgery, then you might be wondering whether you will go for a tummy tuck or liposuction. Well, a lot of patients get confused with the two procedures so it’s now time to fully understand the certain criteria to fulfill when recommending or deciding between the two procedures.

While the goal of abdominal liposuction and tummy tuck are almost the same, to provide the patient a slimmer waist and a flat, nice-looking abdomen, the surgical procedures that are used vary from one patient to another and in a case to case basis. The following aspects are needed to be considered:

Skin laxity

If you have a minimal skin laxity, liposuction alone can help you achieve your desired result. But if you happen to have a considerable amount of saggy skin on your belly that is usually caused by one or multiple pregnancies and a massive weight loss, then your surgeon would recommend you to undergo a tummy tuck.

Muscular laxity

When you have experienced multiple pregnancies before or had lost weight in the past significantly, you must know that not only your skin but as well as your muscles suffer. If you have an issue with muscular laxity, then the optimal treatment method would be a tummy tuck. The surgeon will eliminate the fat, remove the excess skin tissue and strengthen the muscles of the abdominal wall as well.

Even if you have a relatively small or huge quantity of excess skin on your abdominal area, you can seek the help of cosmetic surgeons especially if you are really bothered. But keep in mind that while tummy tuck intervention can solve issues that are related to excess skin, liposuction can just make it worse. Consulting an expert and understanding the benefits and disadvantages of the two procedures are suggested.
