You have probably heard of both the tummy tuck procedure and liposuction. And you are probably aware that they are both body contouring procedures. However, did you know that they are often combined to produce the best results? Many people are not aware that many different cosmetic procedures are often combined to “kill two birds with one stone” and achieve the best possible outcomes.

The Individual Procedures

The tummy tuck procedure is often done after childbirth or weight loss to help address sagging abdominal skin. It can also help to correct weakened or separated abdominal muscles which can cause a protruding belly.

Liposuction is done to help eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It can be performed on almost any area of the body, making it extremely versatile.

Combining the Procedures

While both of these procedures are effective on their own, they can provide even better results when combined. Plus, you will only need to undergo one surgery and one recovery period with this combined approach, saving you time and money. Plus, you will be able to receive the benefits of both the removal of lax skin and abdominal fat for a flat abdominal contour.
