In a lipo-abdominoplasty procedure, patients initially undergo circumferential liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen, hips, back and flanks. Dr. Shienbaum will often utilize Vaser ultrasonic technique for areas of stubborn fat and fine contouring. Only with this combined procedure can the traditional Tummy Tuck achieve a truly spectacular result.
In Tampa, will liposuction be performed with my Tummy Tuck?
Yes. For many years, Dr. Shienbaum has performed his Lipo-Abdominoplasty procedure that includes extensive liposuction of the hip love handles, protruding thighs, and redundant back rolls. This combining of procedures allows for the dramatic body sculpting and contouring results seen in his before and after photographs.
A Mini-abdominoplasty is often performed for problems areas located below the belly button. Small areas of lower abdominal fat deposits or sagging skin can be addressed with a much smaller incision. The Mini Tummy Tuck also allows for a much quicker recovery time.
The Hourglass Tummy Tuck
The Hourglass Tummy Tuck provides a stunning curvaceous body silhouette by combining three procedures into one: Tummy Tuck, LipoSculpture, and Brazilian Butt Lift. This has become Dr. Shienbaum’s Signature procedure at Brandon Plastic Surgery.
Tummy Tuck Alternatives
One can always try more diet and exercise. But no amount of abdominal work can tighten loosened fascia or reunite separated rectus musculature. Some plastic surgeons in the Tampa areas may suggest Liposuction. However, hanging flabby excess abdominal skin will not be improved with liposuction. The stubborn, resistant love handle fat remains a perpetual struggle. Unfortunately, nothing can compete with the total sculpting achieved by a well performed and executed Lipo-Abdominoplasty body contouring procedure.
What are the risks of my Tummy Tuck procedure?
The most talked about risks are an anesthesia reaction, bleeding, hematoma or seroma formation, scarring, sensation loss, blood clots and an unsatisfactory cosmetic appearance.
However, most concerns usually reflect the potential swelling, discomfort and recovery time associated with an Abdominoplasty procedure. Long-term naval appearance, scar position, and the overall body contour are the most relevant concerns.
