Tummy Tuck or Liposuction?

If there is a concern about skin laxity, a tummy tuck with liposuction may be more appropriate. This is difficult to determine without additional pictures of tummy tuck or an exam.

I have a lot of patients who appear to need a tummy tuck but have a great result with liposuction alone. (Kenneth B. Hughes, MD, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)

Tummy tuck or liposuction which is best

I cannot tell from the photographs of tummy tuck whether you have loose skin. However if you do have loose skin on your abdomen a tummy tuck is going to be a better choice.

If your skin is fairly tight and he only have fat need your skin than liposuction will improve you but there is always a risk of loose skin. Please consult a board certified plastic surgeon. (Brooke R. Seckel, MD, FACS, Boston Plastic Surgeon)

It would have been better if you actually sent a photo of your abdomen. But from what I can tell, your best option is a full tummy tuck. Liposuction alone, even with laser tightening, is not adequate for you. The 50/50 statement really seems somewhat odd. I would consult with a couple of other experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. (Ruben B. Abrams, MD, FACS, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)

Tummy tuck vs. Liposuction

It is difficult to say based on the photos of tummy tuck alone. Many patients want to believe that liposuction alone will render the results they desire. However, these patients may be disappointed after spending money, time and recovery without desirable results.

I would recommend another consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has extensive experience in both liposuction and tummy tucks. Ask to see as many before and after photos of patients similar to you. (Christopher J. Morea, MD, Raleigh-Durham Plastic Surgeon)

TT vs lipo

I can’t tell from these photos alone. Sometimes it is obvious from photos that a patient needs a TT, sometimes it is obvious that she needs only lipo. Neither is obvious from these photos of tummy tuck.

My hunch would be that a TT would be a better choice, but an in person exam is needed to make that recommendation. A second opinion from another surgeon seems in order. All the best. (Jourdan Gottlieb, MD, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)
