Pubic liposuction really is considered part of complementary liposuction  to improve the contour along with liposuction of the flanks and waist when is necessary, but  the  abdominoplasty does not include  liposuction of thighs.
although  surgeons  usually  do not  increase the  prices when add liposuction in this  anatomical area , this may varies from a surgeon to another.

     In general, a tummy tuck involves removal of skin and fat tissue, transposing the belly button, and tightening the abdominal wall.  Any other procedures are usually not included in the description of a tummy tuck.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of tummy tucks and body contouring procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

What does Tummy Tuck include?

Thank you for your question. No, and should be discussed prior to surgery so you and your surgeon know what the expectation is. This is a separate area, and will take more time to do. I hope this helps.

Some surgeons will incorporate regional liposuction is part of the abdominoplasty. Others may bill separately for it. This will be explained to you by your surgeon. Keep in mind any additional work beyond the abdominoplasty requires more time.

Is Liposuction Usually Included with the Price of a Tummy Tuck?

This will vary from surgeon to surgeon. Often a small area of liposuction in the general field of the tummy tuck might be included, such as the area by the ends of the incisions to blend in the operated and non-operated areas a bit. Some might include the mons, The thighs would almost always incur an extra charge. 

Thanks for your question, all the best.

Tummy tuck and Liposuction

+1

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction are separate procedures.  These procedures can be combined.  It is best to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon and discuss your options.

Tummy tucks do not include liposucton of your thighs

+1

but you could probably get your doctor to suction your mons to improve your results while under anesthesia.  Some doctors are more generous in what is offered as a courtesy.  I enjoy removing skin tags and clinically benign nevi when doing procedures for my patients.

Liposuction with tummy tuck

Liposuction to the flanks, pubis, and abdomen may be included, but the thighs are a separate anatomical area.  Liposuction to thighs is generally billed separately.

Is Liposuction of the Mons Pubis and Inner Thighs Usually Included with the Price of a Tummy Tuck

That is a very individual practice decision by the Plastic Surgeon. Understand there are extra costs involved in adding liposuction of ANY areas with a TT operation. Costs in time, anesthesia, materials, staffing. Thus if the PS offers to do lipo at no additional fee than that is a "gift". In my practice it varies to each individual case.

Is Liposuction of the Mons Pubis and Inner Thighs Usually Included with the Price of a Tummy Tuck?

Liposuction of the Mons Pubis and inner thighs can improve your body contour when performed in conjunction with Tummy Tuck. It is upto your Plastic Surgeon to decide about the charges. Generally speaking, if it is a small amount of liposuction which does not take up much time then your Surgeon may not charge extra. But if the additional time required is significant then it is reasonable to expect an additional fee

Hope this helps
