Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
Tummy Tuck Spartanburg | Greenville
Occasionally, patients who choose a liposuction procedure are left with excess skin in the abdominal area. In these cases, Dr. Orseck recommends a combination of liposuction followed by a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, procedure to improve the resulting contour of the new, reshaped waistline.
The best candidates for an abdominoplasty are those who are in good health, have realistic expectations for the result, and who have completed childbearing. Most often, those who are planning to lose a substantial amount of weight may see less than optimal results over the long term and should postpone have the procedure until their weight has stabilized.
Since abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, it is considered major surgery and the recovery time is longer than that if the patient chooses only to have a liposuction procedure, thus, some patients choose to have the two procedures performed at different times to better suit individual schedules.
