Should I get liposuction or a tummy tuck?

Many patients ask whether they should get a liposuction or tummy tuck. Liposuction can only reduce fat. If your primary issue is extra fat without any loose skin or bulging belly due to muscle diastasis then liposuction may be a good option for you.

However if you have loose skin, stretch marks, or muscle diastasis from pregnancy or significant weight loss, you will most likely need a tummy tuck. Unlike liposuction alone, during a tummy tuck your surgeon can fix and tighten loose muscles and remove and tighten loose or hanging skin. If you are unsure of either liposuction or tummy tuck , then it’s best to get a consult with a surgeon who is experienced and qualified to do both procedures.
