Making the decision to have cosmetic surgery can be tough. When it comes to body contouring, there are a few different options that one can consider. One of the most common options is liposuction and tummy tuck. Both of these procedures are used to sculpt and contour the body and can be used to address stubborn fat and loose skin. Board-certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides liposuction and tummy tuck to patients in Dallas, Plano, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Liposuction is one of the most popular body contouring procedures and is used to remove unwanted fat from the body. The procedure can be done on almost any area of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, and neck. During the procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the body and used to suction out the fat. Liposuction typically requires a few days of downtime, and the results can be seen almost immediately after the procedure. The benefits of liposuction include a more sculpted and contoured body and improved muscle definition. However, liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss. It is meant to contour the body and is not intended to be used as a weight loss tool.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to tighten and tone the abdominal muscles. It is often used to address excess skin and stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision in the lower abdomen and then remove excess skin and fat. The abdominal muscles will then be tightened and stitched together.
The benefits of a tummy tuck include a flat, toned stomach and improved core strength. The results of the procedure are usually long-lasting, provided that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Which Procedure is Right For Me?
When deciding between liposuction and a tummy tuck, it’s important to consider your goals and your body type. Liposuction is ideal for those who are looking to contour and sculpt their abdomen. This procedure will not address any excess skin or loose muscles that leave a “flabby” appearance after the fat is removed.
A tummy tuck, on the other hand, is ideal for those who are looking to tighten and tone the abdominal muscles. It is also a good choice for those who have excess skin and stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
