Should I Get Tummy Tuck, or Liposuction?Liposuction and tummy tuck are two of the most popular surgeries available for those looking to contour and rejuvenate their bodies. Both of these procedures offer significant results, but have some major differences that should be considered. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you decide which surgery is best for you and your goals. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides liposuction and tummy tuck surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck is a more intensive surgery that is ideal for patients that have excess, sagging skin. This is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia that involves the removal of excess fat and skin, as well as the tightening and repair of the underlying abdominal muscles.

Liposuction

Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from nearly anywhere on the body, but does not involve the removal of excess skin. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and uses a small cannula to suction out fat from the treatment areas. Liposuction is ideal for patients wanting to address localized areas of fat that still have good skin laxity.

Considerations

Tummy tuck and liposuction are procedures meant to reduce fat in targeted areas of the body and will not result in substantial weight loss. Exercise and a healthy diet will need to be adopted to maintain results from these procedures. Tummy tuck surgery will also result in a longer recovery period, while you may be able to return to work sooner with liposuction. During your consultation, your surgeon will create a personalized plan for you that will detail every step of your procedure. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides tummy tuck and liposuction to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
