Curious How Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Can Work? Discover the Results Here!

Tummy tuck liposuction can have multiple benefits for many patients. If you are struggling with a wrinkled stomach after childbirth, a tummy tuck may be able to provide you with a more long term solution. To find out more about tummy tuck liposuction, please read on. You will also find a case file where tummy tuck liposuction was executed, this should give you a better idea of how tummy tucks are implemented.

Could You Give Me Some Details On This Tummy Tuck Liposuction Case File?

The patient in question was struggling with a wrinkled stomach after childbirth. As you may know already, this is an incredibly difficult problem to get rid of, no matter your exercise routine or balanced diet. In order to get rid of the problem, the patient opted for a mini-tuck and breast augmentation.

Even though a full tummy tuck would have been advised in this case, the patient opted for a mini-tuck. The problem with the mini-tuck for this patient was the fact that the umbilicus could not be moved. This left her with some wrinkles after the procedure, however, there is still a significant improvement.

When Do People Go For Tummy Tuck Liposuction?

There are many reasons why people opt for a tummy tuck liposuction. The most common reason for a tummy tuck is sagging skin due to pregnancy, weigh-loss or ageing. Thanks to the procedure, the patient can enjoy a more athletic looking abdomen. If you want to know if a tummy tuck could be the solution for you, please call our clinic for advice.

What Is The Difference Between A Full Tummy Tuck and a Mini-Tuck?

Patients who have a good muscle tone and who have a wrinkly stomach could opt for a mini-tuck instead of a full tummy tuck. Patients who have a lot of excessive fat and less underlying muscle should opt for a full tummy tuck instead, since this may give better results. During a tummy tuck, the cosmetic surgeon will remove excess fat and skin, providing the patient with a firmer abdomen.

How Does A Tummy Tuck Procedure Go?

A tummy tuck procedure may vary according to the type of abdominoplasty you have chosen. In general, a tummy tuck procedure can last up to three hours when general anaesthetic is used. The tummy tuck usually starts with a small incision on the base of the abdomen. The incision can also vary according to the tummy tuck procedure. For example, a full tummy tuck will have a larger incision than a mini-tuck.

During a tummy tuck, torn and stretched muscles will be pulled together. The surgeon will also remove excess fat and ensure that the belly button is positioned properly. There is also a difference with a mini-tuck, because the belly buttoned is not moved during a mini-tuck procedure.

What Are The Benefits Of A Tummy Tuck?

There are several benefits for patients who opt for a tummy tuck. These benefits are not only on a physical level, but also on a mental level. Most patients who opt for a tummy tuck do so because they do not feel confident anymore due to their excess fat or wrinkly stomach. On top of the physical advantages, you can also count on mental advantages such as more self-esteem and confidence.

Patients who have opted for a tummy tuck can also enjoy a flatter and firmer stomach. In addition to that, your stomach will also be more proportionate with your body shape. As long as the patient maintains a balanced diet and does regular exercise, the results of a good tummy tuck will be more long term.

What Happens After My Tummy Tuck Procedure?

The aftercare after your tummy tuck procedure depends on the type of procedure you had. The majority of patients need to wear an abdominal support garment for a certain period of time, usually for a minimum of thirty days.

Most patients need to take seven days of work after the procedure, although this may vary according to the patient and the procedure itself. The timeframe in which you have to take it easy for a while will usually be mentioned by the medical team before the procedure. However, the timeframe may be expanded depending on your situation.

Is There A Difference Between a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?

There is a difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction. Patients usually opt for one or both of these procedures depending on their specific problem area. Patients who have localised fat tissue in specific areas will find better results in liposuction, while patients who choose a tummy tuck want to tackle excess abdominal skin and tighten abdominal muscles. Patients who have been left with wrinkly skin after giving birth are therefore better off with a tummy tuck than liposuction. However, if you have problem areas with excess fat, liposuction will be the better option.

Patients who suffer from both excess fat and wrinkly skin can usually take advantage of liposuction as well as a tummy tuck, however, this does not mean that both procedures will be executed at the same time. If you want to know what your options are for both liposuction and tummy tucks, be sure to contact the Dr Lanzer clinic.

The before and after photographs available on the Dr Lanzer website can help patients to get more insight into the results that can be obtained from a tummy tuck with liposuction. The tummy tuck procedure is implemented in patients with an excessive amount of skin after considerable weight loss or pregnancy. In cases where the tummy tuck is accompanied by liposuction, the patient also struggles with persistent fat deposits. The removal of excess fat and skin can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the treatment area, which is why we recommend that patients look at the before and after photographs of tummy tuck procedures to get an idea of the possibilities.

Even though the before and after photographs can give patients a better idea on what to expect from a tummy tuck with liposuction procedure, patients must consider that the results obtained from a cosmetic surgery procedure are unique to everyone. So, while the photographs on the website are an indication of the results that could be obtained from a tummy tuck with liposuction, there are in no way a guarantee that you will get similar results from a tummy tuck with liposuction. To get a better idea of how your treatment area will look like after the tummy tuck with liposuction procedure, please speak to Dr Lanzer during your consultation.
