Tummy tuck and liposuction are the two most commonly combined cosmetic surgery procedures. The reason is that while liposuction removes excess fat it cannot remove excess skin. And vice versa, a tummy tuck removes extra skin folds and not so much excess fat. Therefore, liposuction and tummy tuck can supplement each other to contour the body in the most effective way in order to give you a sexy curvaceous figure!
When performing a tummy tuck, liposuction of the flanks and the lower back narrows the waistline and creates an hourglass figure. While few plastic surgeons also advocate the upper abdominal liposuction with tummy tuck, most feel that liposuction should not be performed on the abdominal skin flap due to its potential injury to the skin circulation. Therefore, Liposuction of the flanks, thighs, hips, arms, and back can be safely performed with a tummy tuck as long as the total surgery time is not too long and the combined procedure blood loss is kept to a minimal.
