A lot of men and women struggle with the appearance of their stomach. For some people, the stomach can be a problem area where excess fat seems to accumulate with ease that will not go away no matter how much they diet and exercise. For others, their stomach may be plagued by loose skin, pockets of stubborn fat, and stretched-out abdominal muscles.
At Marietta Plastic Surgery, we offer procedures that can give you the flatter and tighter-looking tummy you want. Our expertly trained plastic surgeons can take the time to analyze the condition of your stomach and recommend the course of action.
Do I Need Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck?
Both liposuction and a tummy tuck can be performed to enhance the appearance of the stomach. However, the procedures are not interchangeable and are each designed to handle specific concerns. During your consultation, our team can let you know which option is best for you.
Liposuction is a surgical body contouring procedure that can be used to precisely target fat around the stomach and mid-section. This can help to give the stomach a slimmer look and enhance the appearance of your figure. However, liposuction cannot address loose and saggy abdominal skin. Liposuction is also not a weight loss procedure. When performed by a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, liposuction can provide incredibly natural-looking results.
If you do have loose abdominal skin, a tummy tuck can provide you with the results you are looking for. During a tummy tuck, excess loose abdominal skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightly sutured together to give the stomach a slimmer and smoother appearance. Loose abdominal muscles can also be tightened if necessary. In some cases, liposuction is performed as a part of the tummy tuck procedure to provide more comprehensive results.
