Lipoabdominoplasty the “New” Tummy Tuck

Lipoabdominoplasty is a relatively new cosmetic surgical procedure that holds much promise for those seeking to flatten their abdomen. Indeed, the advantages of lipoabdominoplasty may bring about a dramatic demand for this cosmetic procedure. This page will present a brief summary of the nature and advantages of in office lipoabdominoplasty under tumescent (local) anesthesia.

Lipoabdominoplasty is a combination of two cosmetic procedures. The first procedure is liposuction which is used to remove excess unwanted fat. Liposuction is not an alternative to exercise and diet; however it is a valuable tool in the hands of a qualified surgeon who will help give you the toned look you desire.

The second procedure is a minimally invasive tummy tuck made possible by the tunneling effects of the liposuction. The primary goal of this less invasive tummy tuck is to remove the excess skin remaining after liposuction has been completed, in order to create a more youthful, flattened appearance of the abdomen.

By combining liposuction and a minimally invasive tummy tuck into a single operation, lipoabdominoplasty provides our clients several benefits such as an improved body contour and shape, decreased postoperative risks and complications, and a diminished risk of  numbness after the surgery. It also offers a quicker, less painful recovery following the procedure.
