Difference between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Update 16/09/2018

 

The desire for a flatter tummy is common these days, and so is the confusion about how to achieve this goal. Liposuction and tummy tuck are the two most popular procedures used by cosmetic surgeons all over the world to remove unwanted fat in the abdominal area. Although the end result of both of these procedures is the same – a slim waistline, the decision to choose liposuction or tummy tuck or both remains a daunting challenge for most prospective candidates.

Before you schedule an appointment with your cosmetic surgeon, it is best that you have first-hand information about the major differences between these two procedures so that you are able to make a better decision.

– Skin and Muscle Tone

The amount of loose skin present in the abdominal region is the major factor in determining which procedure is most suitable for you. Those with a significant amount of loose skin can enjoy good results only from a tummy tuck procedure. During this procedure, a large amount of skin is removed from the lower abdomen while at the same time the skin on the upper abdomen is tightened which results in a flatter and more attractive midsection. On the hand, if you have a tighter abdominal skin and significantly lesser amount of fat deposits, you can be a good candidate for liposuction.

–  Side Effects

In terms of side-effects and post-operative care, liposuction is a relatively better option as it involves minimally invasive surgery. The cosmetic surgeons use a thin hollow tube to suck out the dissolved fat cells from the affected areas. No major incisions are made therefore liposuction leaves extremely minimal scarring. The patients do feel a bit of pain and swelling afterward but the recovery period is very short.

On the other hand, a tummy tuck is a far more complex surgical procedure which involves making a huge incision right above the pubic region. This leaves a large scar that goes across the entire belly. There are more chances of side effects in tummy tuck and the recovery time is relatively very long.

–  Cost

Last but not the least; a tummy tuck is a far more expensive procedure than liposuction as it is more complex in nature.
