Tummy Tuck, Explained

cosmetic surgeryA tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes a significant amount of skin from your lower abdomen and tightens your abdominal muscles to create a lovely stomach. The procedure requires an incision along your lower abdomen to achieve this result. Tummy tuck surgeries are much more involved than liposuction; however, they make rocking a bathing suit fun again.

Liposuction, Explained

Liposuction is a relatively simple, minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that requires inserting small, stainless steel tubes into areas of the body with excessive fat and using a special vacuum to suck out the fat. The method is a popular procedure for sculpting the thighs and hips, though it is also used on the stomach.

Which Is Best for You?

Determining which cosmetic surgery option is best for you is based on factors such as excess skin on your abdomen and your muscle tone. A tummy tuck is generally best if you have saggy abdominal muscles and loose skin, while liposuction is ideal if your skin and muscles are tight and you simply want to remove a little fat.
