Liposuction is perhaps the most effective way to remove stubborn deposits of fat from nearly any area of the body. Because fat accumulations are typically removed during tummy tuck surgery, it is common for liposuction to be included in the procedure. Whether or not this will be necessary during your tummy tuck is best left up to board-certified Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña.
What Does a Tummy Tuck Correct?
Tummy tuck surgery:
- Removes loose, sagging and droopy skin from the midsection
- Removes the stubborn fat deposits obscuring abdominal muscles
- Tightens abdominal muscles to trim the waist and improve overall contours
There is significant evidence to suggest tummy tuck benefits extend beyond the aesthetic to include some health advantages as well. Fat in the abdominal area is known to be among the most harmful to overall health and recent studies have shown body contouring with liposuction and tummy tuck can help prevent this fat from returning. What’s more, tummy tuck surgery can help improve core strength and act as a spring-board for a healthier and more fulfilling life. These benefits can be discussed in greater detail during your consultation at our Naples, Florida office.
