When there is a significant quantity of localized fat tissue in a specific abdomen location, stomach liposuction is frequently performed. Tumescent liposuction is the most popular method for removing this fat, as it is significantly less invasive than traditional liposuction with large cannulas.
Several micro-instruments, including a small tube or cannula, remove extra fat from the abdominal region during tumescent liposuction. The technique is designed to contour the belly and effectively eliminate stubborn fats that are resistant to diet and exercise. For patients who have an excellent mucus membrane, abdominal liposuction will be used.
The physician will make an incision across the lower abdomen during the tummy tuck operation. The surgeon will use the incision in the belly to remove any excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck operations, unlike liposuction, are typically performed on patients who do not have a significant amount of fatty tissue but do not have the muscle tone or skin elasticity to achieve a toned belly. A tummy tuck can be paired with an abdominal liposuction operation in patients who have much weight to lose and may be left with excess skin after the initial liposuction operation.
Tummy Tuck Liposuction operations are becoming increasingly popular among patients. Another advantage of this approach is that it requires less skin to be lifted, which means less risk to the skin’s blood supply on the upper stomach. Recovery has grown much faster since the introduction of tumescent procedures to the area of cosmetic surgery. Most patients who leave the clinic following abdominal liposuction do not require powerful painkillers and can get by with over-the-counter pain relievers.
