Can Liposuction and Tummy Tuck be Done Together?


By Emel Gerdaneri • Medical review by Estetica Istanbul

Can Liposuction and Tummy Tuck be Done Together?

How are your abdominal muscles? Unfortunately, many of us don't even want to answer this question because a rigorous exercise and diet program is not enough to achieve a flat stomach.

Moreover, if we have given birth or lost excess weight.

If you have loose, sagging abdominal skin and split abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck is inevitable to correct it. So what if we add liposuction to this?

We asked Estetica Istanbul about the details of the  treatment where tummy tuck and liposuction operations are performed together:

“The name of the operation you mentioned is lipoabdominoplasty. In other words, liposuction and abdominoplasty are performed in the same surgery.

This operation, in which we remove excess oil, sagging and even cracked skin from the body, has a great effect on self-confidence.

As I said, lipoabdominoplasty is a combined operation that includes liposuction and tummy tuck for those who are bothered by the stubborn fat areas surrounding the abdomen as well as loose, sagging skin.

Stubborn Fat That Does not Respond To Diet and Exercise

diet and exerciseLiposuction is one of the most applied plastic surgery procedures in the world.

Essentially, it's a procedure that targets stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. As you know, it can be applied to many parts of the body.

We can often do it on the thighs, belly, hips, back, sides and even arms. However, it is worth noting that you can also have liposuction to complete the jowl, face lift or breast augmentation.

Fat Cells are Permanently Removed

By permanently removing these fat cells, liposuction can deliver truly long-lasting results, allowing you to enjoy the contoured look you've always wanted.

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and tissue from your abdomen and strengthens the abdominal muscles. In a way, the separated abdominal muscles are repaired.

As a result, tummy tuck will not only help you eliminate sagging, it will also provide you with a smooth, taut and tight abdomen.

There are Different Types of Tummy Tuck

types of tummy tuckAs with liposuction, there are different types of tummy tuck to choose from. For example, patients can decide between a full tummy tuck, a circumferential 360 tummy tuck, or even a "mini" tummy tuck.

We guide you to your goals of shaping your body, at the point where your wishes meet with what should be.

Both liposuction and tummy tuck can help you achieve a more contoured, more aesthetic abdomen, and lose stubborn lubrication and sagging that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Now we always tell our patients: If you only have a little excess belly fat, but you do not have loose skin and there is no separation of the abdominal muscles, we can only choose liposuction.

In this state, we can remove unwanted fat and shape the abdomen by performing liposuction alone.

This Combination Shapes The Entire Tummy

tummyIf your skin is loose, sagging and you have problems with your abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck will be the right choice. Liposuction and tummy tuck are both treatments.

In short, this combination shapes the entire midsection, contours it and gives it a tight, straight look. As a matter of fact, there is no "right answer" for the question you asked. It all depends on your body and your aesthetic goals.

But I also think it's worth pointing out. Tummy tuck and liposuction complement each other perfectly.

When we do these two procedures together, we remove unwanted fat, tighten the abdomen, muscles and reshape the entire area.

By adding liposuction to your tummy tuck, we reveal a tight and flat stomach, we can reshape your waist.

A tummy tuck alone can reshape the tummy, but when you add liposuction, your middle, front, back and sides are briefly all covered. A unique abdominal area is created.”
