THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION AND TUMMY TUCK COMBINED
Abdominoplasty Dubai | 1 September 2021
For many women and men, a combination of liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can create enhanced body contouring results that meet or exceed a patient’s expectations. Although liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are often referred to as interchangeable treatments to help patients slim down their waistline, they actually are quite different in how they work. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure to reduce isolated pockets of subcutaneous fat that have become unresponsive to diet and exercise.
If you have exhausted all efforts of a healthy lifestyle but still struggle with loose skin or excess fat in your midsection, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery could be the solution you need. To learn more about this highly effective body contouring duo, contact Dr. Vigo to schedule a body contouring consultation with dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi.
What is a tummy tuck?
Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is a fantastic way to achieve a tighter, more contoured profile. Men and women frustrated with loose skin, damaged underlying abdominal muscles, or stretch marks as the result of dramatic weight loss or childbirth can correct these issues with this body contouring procedure. It can be a life-changing surgery for patients, transforming the way they look.
How does liposuction work?
Liposuction is a popular fat reduction surgery to reduce pockets of stubborn fat in various areas of the body. Even healthy men and women who are diligent about eating well and exercising regularly can struggle with pockets of fat in hard-to-lose places, particularly in the waistline area. Liposuction can effectively remove fat cells from targeted areas without damaging surrounding tissues, leaving patients looking more toned, contoured, and slimmer.
Primary benefits of combining these two body contouring procedures
Liposuction is a go-to option for women and men seeking aesthetic help to slim down or reshape their body without a lengthy recovery. It is one of the several body contouring procedures that Dr. Vigo offers to his patients. The primary benefit of combining liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, also known as lipoabdominoplasty, is that Dr. Mizuguchi can address pockets of unwanted fat while repairing muscle tissue and tightening loose skin. Patients will plan for one surgical procedure and one recovery period, rather than two separate body contouring treatments. In most cases, loose skin and excess fat in the lower abdominal area go hand-in-hand, so treating both aesthetic issues simultaneously is often the most cost-effective and efficient way to get superior results.
