Even with a good diet and regular exercise, some people still can’t seem to eliminate portions of fat. Excess fatty tissue can be hereditary, especially for certain parts of the body. If you have already tried to lose weight and just need that extra push to achieve your ideal body contour, then liposuction may be for you. Also called lipoplasty or “lipo” for short, liposuction is the direct removal of fat through small incisions in the skin. Though some areas of the body are not good candidates for liposuction, many areas can be treated:
Liposuction is often paired with other procedures such as breast reduction, a tummy tuck, or a facelift, but it can also be performed alone. Though liposuction does achieve fat reduction, it should not be used as a cure for obesity. It is also not effective in treating loose, saggy skin or cellulite, patches of dimpled skin that appear on the buttocks, hips, and thighs.

Tummy Tuck

The “tummy tuck” is also known as abdominoplasty. This procedure removes unwanted excess skin and fat from around your abdomen and tightens your abdominal wall at the same time. This procedure is most often performed to correct the changes after pregnancy or significant weight loss when it is common for skin to become slack and saggy.
The tummy tuck can also reestablish your stomach’s weakened or separated muscles, giving you a tighter physique in the process.
