Liposuction or Tummy Tuck: Check Out Which One Is Ideal For You

Most patients come to our clinic and ask to have a flatter, trimmer midsection. Most of them are searching for the best procedure for their particular circumstances, whether they are due to the dramatic loss of weight, post-pregnancy, or even abdominal fat that cannot be fixed by normal diet and exercise. These patients have done a lot of research and are aware that the overweight and flabby belly can be addressed by two primary therapies Liposuction Miami and Tummy Tuck. But they may not be sure what technique is best for them. So, I am here to support them and all the others who think underground to explain that how it is executed. Then, I’ll tell you about the ideal candidates for each.


Liposuction eliminates residual fat deposits and fatty tissue that tend to slim, contour, and reshape the body’s regions. It is carried out using a cannula attached to an aspirator to absorb the fat. The cannula is placed just below the skin surface by tiny incisions and these incisions are made carefully on the treated area. The fat is just sucked out, as described.

Tummy Tuck

On the other hand, in the Tummy Tuck, the extra fat and skin in the belly are eliminated and muscles in the abdomen are tightened. The outcome is a flatter, tighter stomach. In the lower belly, a broad incision is made across the lower abdomen from hip to hip, along the bikini line where it can be best hidden. The abdominal skin is removed from the muscle by this incision so that abdominal muscles can be tightened with sutures that provide an internal corset. The rest of the skin flap is sutured tightly to the original incision to connect it to the abdominal muscles.


In the process, we can now see that the principal distinction between the two the Tummy Tuck and Liposuction. Tummy Tuck corrects the excess, hanging, sagging skin, but liposuction is not ideal to do that.  Ideal Liposuction patients have excess body fat and skin which is solid enough not to shrink after the procedure, while Tuck candidates have excess abdominal skin in addition to the fat deposits.

No matter which procedure is you’re considering, make sure that you get the best recommendation from a board-certified plastic surgeon that has a license, wide experience in the procedure you’re interested in. They can show you the before and after pictures of their patients who have undergone the same procedure.
