Abdominoplasty vs Liposuction
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your midriff, you may be wondering about options like a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and liposuction. Both of these cosmetic procedures can improve the appearance of the tummy area, but in different ways:
Abdominoplasty: If you have a lot of excess fat and skin protruding from your abdomen, then a tummy tuck may be the right option. A tummy tuck is a surgical removal of the excess fat, and then the skin is re-draped over the flatter abdominal area.
Liposuction: This treatment can create slimmer, better defined areas where there are excess fat deposits. If you are at or near your ideal body weight but have stubborn fat around your abdomen, without a lot of excess hanging abdominal skin, then liposuction can remove these fat deposits and create a slimmer, smoother tummy area.
Feeling unhappy about the appearance of your midriff can make you feel less confident. At Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, we want to help restore your confidence in your body. Whether you have developed excess abdominal fat and sagging skin after pregnancy, aging, or because of other factors, we can help you determine if liposuction or a tummy tuck is right for you.
