Healthy women (and men) across America say their midsection is one of the most problematic area for them. Maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise sometimes just isn’t enough. Stubborn fat tissue below the belly button can be hard to treat on your own, especially if you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight or have given childbirth.

If you’re tired of slow results from diligent diet and exercise, it may be time to consider sculpting your body for a flatter, leaner-looking tummy. Body contouring procedures can improve your figure in areas that are typically difficult to tone.

Many of our clients come to us asking what the best method of contouring is for their body; a tummy tuck or liposuction. Based on your individual needs, your doctor might recommend either or both to give you optimal results.

  • A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal wall through a small incision located below your underwear or bikini line. You’ll benefit from dramatic results and a reduced waist size as this is also typically combined with liposuction of the flanks. Although a tummy tuck decreases your waist circumference, it will not change the size of hips or thighs.
  • The liposuction procedure either in conjunction with a tummy tuck or on its own can improve your body’s contour for a more balanced look. A small incision is made to the target area and a hollow tube is used to remove deep, unwanted fat through vacuum pressure. Liposuction can give your belly, hips, thighs, and flanks a proportionate appearance.

Both tummy tucks and liposuction can help reshape your ab region. The ideal candidate for either procedure is a physically healthy adult seeking reshaping of the abdomen and flanks. Each procedure can require anywhere from 1-3 weeks recovery time so be sure to take that into consideration prior to your treatment. Talk to your doctor about what’s right for you during your in-person consult.
