Tummy tucks and liposuction are among the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States.
In some cases, these procedures are done together during the same procedure.
In fact, getting a tummy tuck combined with liposuction is becoming more and more common. Here’s why people are doing it.
1. You Can Recover from Both Procedures at Once
One reason some people hold off on getting cosmetic procedures they want is because of the recovery time. Most of us have full schedules, and it’s hard to take time out.
When you combine procedures, you don’t have to go through two separate recoveries. That’s less time off work and away from your life.
2. You Can Attack Excess Fat and Loose Skin at the Same Time
A combined tummy tuck and liposuction could be the missing piece of your body transformation puzzle.
Loose, sagging skin is often left behind after weight loss or pregnancy. While liposuction can help to get rid of stubborn fat that clings to the body after you’ve lost weight, it may not rid you of all the excess skin.
A tummy tuck can help get rid of that extra skin to give you a slimmer waist and flatter stomach.
3. There are “Hidden” Health Benefits
Aside from the obvious aesthetic benefits of having a tummy tuck combined with liposuction, you may also enjoy some additional tummy tuck perks. Without extra skin and fat around the abdominal area, some people are able to maintain better posture.
Plus, people who feel more comfortable and confident in their workout gear are more prone to put it on and exercise. It’s not just a psychological thing, either.
Excess skin and abdominal fat can restrict movement, making exercise uncomfortable and difficult. People who feel more comfortable in their bodies are more likely to be active.
