What is Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck can make your abdomen flatter, firmer and tauter by removing excess loose skin; and tightening the abdominal wall muscles. In case of excessive fat build-up around the abdomen, liposuction can be performed together with Tummy Tuck procedure to effectively remove extra fat deposits. This provides a more enhanced result.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

Through a hidden abdomen incision, excess skin and fat are removed; and abdominal muscles are tightened during the procedure.

Diastasis Recti

Diastasis Recti is a postpartum abdominal condition that causes tummy bulges.

During pregnancy, the six pax muscles splay apart in response to the body’s natural adaptation to accommodate the growing baby. 
Sometimes, the muscles overstretch and never come back. With Tummy Tuck surgery, you can still restore your pre-pregnancy physique!

Should You Combine Liposuction with Tummy Tuck Treatment?

The Benefits

Liposuction uses suction to remove isolated pockets of subcutaneous fat that aren't responding to diet and exercise. On the other hand, Tummy Tuck removes excess skin and tightens loose or separated abdominal muscles.

The most notable benefit of adding liposuction to your tummy tuck is that exercise-resistant fat can be reduced concurrently with eliminating loose skin and repairing muscle tissue.

 With a combined treatment of tummy tuck and liposuction, it produces more optimal body contouring results.
