Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck? How to Contour Your Waist

One of the biggest body complaints people have is that they’d like a slimmer midsection and shapelier waistline.

Even if you are otherwise in great shape, bulges around your tummy can throw off your body’s proportions and make you appear heavier than you actually are.

So, how do you get there? Is liposuction or a tummy tuck the better choice for waist contouring?

How a Tummy Tuck Can Help

Dr. Andan can repair torn muscles and correct your belly button placement during your tummy tuck.

If your problem has more to do with skin than fat, a tummy tuck might be the route that leads to a slimmer stomach. When you have excess or sagging skin around your abdomen, it’s uncomfortable and unsightly.

It’s also frustrating for those who have worked to lose weight only to be left with a bunch of hanging skin that just won’t go away. During a tummy tuck, your cosmetic surgeon will eliminate this extra skin.

The Case for Liposuction

Along with the tummy tuck, liposuction is one of the top waist contouring procedures in the world. Like excess skin, fat that stubbornly clings to your abdomen can be disheartening because it sticks around no matter what you do to lose it. This is where liposuction shines.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Andan, can use liposculpture to precisely target fat around your waist to create just the contours you’re looking for.

The Best of Both Worlds

All too often, it’s both fat and excess skin causing waistline woes. If that’s the case for you, a combination tummy tuck and liposuction might just be the answer. Like many problems in life, the solution doesn’t always consist of just one thing and often lies in just the right combination.
