Liposuction before, during, or after a tummy tuck?

When it comes to liposuction and tummy tuck procedure, patients often get confused on what comes first and why. There are different views about it especially decades ago. Back in those days, combining these procedures are not being done because of the lack of knowledge. There are confusions whether liposuction can affect the end result of a tummy tuck procedure. Moreover, experts believe that it will attract more complications. For this reason, it was commonly recommended for patients to undergo liposuction before or after a tummy tuck surgery.

However, over the passage of years, plenty of studies support that combining liposuction and tummy tuck is a harmless procedure and that they would be just as effective even if performed at the same time. Experts believe that performing both procedures simultaneously will remove more from the skin and fat that has already been extracted.

How do we perform tummy tuck? Typically, we lift the skin and fat from the abdomen. Doing liposuction first can increase complication rates significantly. So, I use the hourglass tummy tuck technique and combined it with liposuction method to achieve the desired hourglass shape result.

But still, combining these procedures is still based on the personal skills and experience of a surgeon. While there is nothing wrong with performing liposuction before and after a tummy tuck, combining the two will significantly lessen the time where a patient can expect and see results. This will also avoid the patient to undergo general anesthesia on two different interventions. The recovery period doesn’t need to be endured separately as well which is such a convenience for a patient. But be sure that you will choose a cosmetic surgeon who is equipped with knowledge and is already comfortable in performing such cosmetic procedures to achieve excellent results and save more time.
