If you are seeking to rejuvenate your midsection, tummy tuck and liposuction are two popular procedures that can be performed. While either of these procedures can produce results, there are some differences to take into consideration when choosing the right procedure for you. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you make an informed decision best for you and your goals. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides tummy tuck surgery and liposuction to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure that involves a long, horizontal incision concealed along the bikini line. Your surgeon will remove any excess fat from the stomach, as well as trim away loose skin and repair any abdominal muscles that may be stretched or torn. The remaining skin is then pulled tight and sutured closed, leaving you with a flat abdomen.
During liposuction, a saline solution is injected into the treatment areas then sucked out along with any excess fat through a thin cannula.
Which Procedure is Best for Me?
Both tummy tuck and liposuction are outpatient procedures performed under general anesthesia, however tummy tuck is a more intensive procedure with more recovery involved. Tummy tuck surgery is recommended for those with loose, sagging skin that needs to be removed to achieve a flat abdomen. For patients that still have good skin laxity and only need localized pockets of fat removed, liposuction is a good option. With either procedure, you will need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to continue enjoying your results. If you’re still unsure which procedure is best for you, schedule a consultation to have a physical exam and to discuss your goals.
