The waistline has been a cause of worry in men and women alike. Unhealthy habits, pregnancy, and stress, among other factors can contribute to unwanted fat stores that are often located in isolated pockets on the body. This stubborn fat can seem unresponsive to diet and exercise, and become extremely difficult to shed off.
For times when crunches don’t budge the belly fat or dieting seems to be going in vain, you can consider cosmetic procedures designed to give you a flatter tummy and a new life. One of the best procedures to help you sculpt your body better are Abdominoplasty a.k.a. ‘tummy tuck’ and liposuction. Both these cosmetic surgical procedures aim to make the stomach appear flatter, tighter, and smaller. Read on to find out more
One the most popular cosmetic procedures, Liposuction removes fat that otherwise seems unresponsive to diet and exercise. It is usually performed on belly, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, or face, reducing bulges by eliminating fat deposits from the targeted area. This process of fat removal doesn’t leave a long scar and has an easy recovery.
Who is it suited for:
Liposuction is the best option for those looking forward to remove small fat deposits commonly found on the hips, thighs, buttocks, or stomach area. People with stubborn belly fat, but otherwise tight skin, can restore a flat tummy through liposuction alone.
Tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, is designed to not only eliminate excess fat from the abdomen, but remove excess skin. The procedure alters the appearance of the abdomen, making it look thinner and firmer. Many people who have experienced extreme shifts in weight or gone through pregnancy can stretch out the skin that surrounds the stomach, which becomes resistant to diet and exercise. Such loose or hanging skin is effectively eliminated after a Tummy Tuck surgery.
Who is it suited for:
A tummy tuck is suitable for men and women who are in good health but who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly. It is specially suited to women who have separated abdominal muscles due to pregnancy, as it tightens their abdominal muscles and reduces skin.
Liposuction VS Tummy Tuck
While Liposuction is best-suited for removing fat in areas of the body with tight skin (such as the hips, saddleback and flanks), Tummy Tuck comes handy in cases when stomach skin has often lost its elasticity because of age, weight gain, or pregnancy. In such cases, Abdominoplasty removes not just the fat but also the extra skin and tightens up the muscles.
