Are you a Corpus Christi man or woman looking for a flatter, more contoured belly? Do you diet and exercise, but still have problem areas in your belly that just won’t go away? Have you recently lost a lot of weight – or gone through pregnancies – only to be left with loose and sagging skin? If “Yes!” is your response to any of these questions, then you may be wondering if a tummy tuck or liposuction is right for you. With nearly two decades worth of surgical experience, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rose is here to tell you that sometimes, it’s best to do both a tummy tuck and liposuction to get the flat, sculpted stomach you want.
What’s the Difference Between a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?
Corpus Christi men and women should know that a tummy tuck and liposuction are two very different, but often complementary, cosmetic surgery procedures. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Rose will make an incision below the bikini line, to remove unwanted loose and sagging skin that many men and women have after losing a significant amount of weight. For mothers who may have experienced a complication of pregnancy called diastasis recti – commonly referred to as separated abdominal muscles – Dr. Rose will tighten the abdominal muscles during the tummy tuck procedure.
While a tummy tuck is a great solution for removing sagging and unwanted skin from your abdomen, it doesn’t necessarily address problem areas of fatty deposits in your belly that just won’t go away, no matter how much you diet or exercise. That’s where Vaserlipo or ultrasonic liposuction comes in. Ideal for Corpus Christi men and women who are at or close to their ideal weight, but just have stubborn fatty deposits that won’t go away, Vaserlipo removes fat by melting the fat with ultrasonic energy and tightening the skin. The fat is then suctioned carefully with liposuction leaving the patient with a beautiful sculpted figure. Vaserlipo in combination with a tummy tuck will make your belly flatter, more sculpted and looking great in anything you wear.
Combining a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction: Getting the Best of Both Worlds.
For Corpus Christi men and women who want to look like a better version of themselves, combining a tummy tuck and Vaser liposuction could be the ideal way to get the flatter abdomen they’ve always desired. If you’re almost at your goal weight, but just have loose and sagging skin, then a tummy tuck could remove that unwanted belly skin for good. Vaser liposuction can take care of stubborn fatty deposits in your belly, back (love handles) and upper abdomen making your abdomen flanks smooth, sleek and sculpted.
Are You an Ideal Candidate for a Combination Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for a combined tummy tuck and liposuction procedures. At Dr. Rose’s Corpus Christi cosmetic surgery practice, he wants his tummy tuck and liposuction patients to:
- Be in good, overall medical health;
- Have realistic expectations for their procedures;
- Be close to, or at, their ideal goal weight;
- Be on a nutritional plan that will help them maintain their beautiful results;
- Be in good psychological health; and
- Be non-smokers, or promise to quit smoking at least eight weeks before and eight weeks after their surgeries, as smoking can complicate both incision healing and recovery time.
