49 year old Female | Abdominoplasty and flank liposuction
There are several varieties of abdominoplasty, including full abdominoplasty, high lateral tension abdominoplasty, lipo-abdominoplasty (tummy tuck combined with liposuction), mini-abdominoplasty, circumferential abdominoplasty (lower body lift), and fleur de lis abdominoplasty. Our surgeons will discuss each of these procedures, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and which you may be a good candidate for during your consultation.
Liposuction is a procedure that sculpts excess and unwanted areas of fat that tends to be more resistant to diet and exercise from the problematic areas. The most common areas treated include the abdomen, love handles, back, thighs / saddlebags, arms, knees, neck, and buttocks.
The benefit to a liposuction, abdominoplasty combination is that liposuction is great for reducing the bulge in localized areas of excess fatty tissue. Liposuction does very little at improving issues related to skin excess. Abdominoplasty will aid this by treating the skin excess.
