Liposuction is a body-contouring procedure that improves a person’s figure by removing small amounts of body fat in the desired areas. Many people believe that liposuction can effectively restore the appearance of their abdomen, but it is important that you understand the limitations of the procedure.

While liposuction can sculpt away excess fat, it cannot correct sagging abdominal skin and loose abdominal muscles. If the appearance of your abdomen is suffering from either of these issues, a tummy tuck is the correct procedure or you. A tummy tuck address multiple abdominal issues at once and provide comprehensive results that create a flatter and more toned abdomen.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Strock will examine your abdomen and will inform you if liposuction is enough to fulfill your aesthetic desires or if surgery is required. If you are in need of professional expertise for correction of abdominal issues, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
