Liposuction is currently one of the most popular procedures performed today. Unfortunately, not everybody is a candidate for liposuction and unfavorable results can occur if you are not the right candidate. Liposuction is a very effective technique for removing the excessive fat that is located in the subcutaneous tissue. If you have excessive skin, liposuction is not going to be the solution to your problem.
Many patients do have liposuction done in such circumstances and the results are aesthetically unfavorable. Why? You will certainly have a decrease in the amount of fat but a lot of excessive skin. In addition, you will have the appearance of a bumpy abdomen and also what I call a “cellulite look.”
A tummy tuck is a solution to this problem. A tummy tuck will remove your excessive skin and improve the appearance of your abdomen. There is nothing wrong in performing a tummy tuck first; then, liposuction in a second surgery. This will give you good results. On the other hand, I do not recommend doing liposuction first and then a tummy tuck if you have saggy skin. I perform both procedures at the same time, which really give impressive results.
