A tummy tuck or liposuction is an excellent option if you want a flatter and more contoured midsection. However, when considering liposuction or a tummy tuck, it’s helpful to understand the pros and cons of each procedure. You may also benefit from combining the two procedures depending on your body goals.
A tummy tuck removes excess skin caused by weight fluctuations or pregnancy and repairs abdominal muscles weakened or separated by those weight changes. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from nearly any area of the body, but it’s especially helpful for reducing fat in the abdominal area, waist, hips, love handles, flanks, and back.
A tummy tuck is a more extensive procedure than liposuction, requiring a couple of weeks of downtime and producing a longer scar (very low on the tummy, from hip to hip).
