One of the most common questions many people have about their tummy tuck procedure is whether or not it’s possible or even recommended to add liposuction. While the answer to this question can vary depending on each person’s individual needs, generally speaking, liposuction can make an excellent addition to a tummy tuck.
Achieve a More Fine-Tuned, Contoured Result
The primary goal of a tummy tuck is to remove excess skin while also tightening the existing skin and abdominal muscle. Although many men and women can achieve noticeable results from abdominoplasty alone, adding liposuction can offer a more comprehensive outcome. When stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise are a problem, incorporating liposuction into a tummy tuck can help to achieve smoother, more fine-tuned results.
More Comprehensive Results
Adding liposuction to your tummy tuck will do more than just remove excess fat from the belly area. The two body contouring procedures can team up to smooth the waist, hips and thighs while correcting loose skin and abdominal muscle. Liposuction can help to accentuate the contours revealed by your tummy tuck and deliver more comprehensive results for an overall improvement to your shape.
The C.L.A.S.S.® Tummy Tuck
The C.L.A.S.S.® tummy tuck has been designed to safely and effectively blend liposuction into a traditional tummy tuck. This can be an excellent treatment option for men and women who want to remove small pockets of fat while also toning and tightening the contours of their body. In addition, the innovative surgical technique behind this method avoids the use of post-tummy tuck drains, which can mean a more comfortable recovery.
