A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. The surgery is more extensive than liposuction, but gives a beautiful, flat abdomen. A large incision is required but it lies below the bikini line in most cases. Surgery is under general anesthesia and an overnight hospital stay is often required. Recovery is 2- weeks. A mini tummy tuck is less invasive and is well suited to those who simply have loose, excess skin at the waistline. This procedure has a smaller incision and lesser downtime. A mini abdominoplasty can often be performed with sedation under local anesthesia.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion. The most common areas include neck, abdomen, thighs, hips, flanks and buttock. Surgery is often performed while awake with oral sedation. Recovery varies and post surgical garments are usually required for a few weeks. Scarring is minimal, consisting of small puncture incisions.
