I agree you seem to be a great candidate for a full tummy tuck with some flank liposuction. As always confirm the plans with your surgeon at the preop appt to make sure everyone is on the same page. Surgeons' approaches to tummy tucks can vary, and how and where they do lipo and how much they undermine are variables that depend on the individuals anatomy, where they have excess, and also surgeons experience. In general flank lipo is safe with a full tummy tuck, but liposuction of the tummy tuck flap in a full tummy tuck can be risky. Be sure to discuss with your surgeon thoroughly.
Based on your photos, you are a candidate for a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction. It sounds like you should seek a second opinion to confirm your expectations prior to surgery. It is better to embark on surgery with a clear understanding of what to expect, than to have doubts .
Hello and thank you for your question.
It sounds like
you've already had a consultation and received a plan from your surgeon. If you
are not confident with his plan, I would recommend that you obtain another
consultation as a second opinion.
Best of luck to you!
These days, liposuction is a standard part of abdominoplasty. It is used to reduce the amount of undermining of the abdominal skin and fat as well as to blend the abdomen into the flank and hips and reduce the length of the transverse scar. Discuss exactly what you want with your surgeon at your pre-op visit and remind him or her again the day of the procedure.
I agree with the other surgeons. You should have a good result with a tummy tuck combined with a small amount of flank liposuction. This is commonly performed together and helps provide an aesthetic result.
I agree that you should have a small amount of flank liposuction. As an add-on procedure, this should be at a token additional cost and it would be financially worthwhile to combine the two rather than to have the liposuction at a later date.
From your current
photographs it seems as though you'll be a good candidate for full tummy tuck
with muscle tightening and possibly some liposuction of the flanks.
You seem to be having
good success with your weight loss. I always recommend to my patients
that they arrive at their stable wait before they embark upon surgery.
Stable weight does not always meanrail thin ,what it means a weight that you
feel comfortable at and can maintain without starving yourself.
You don't want to starve
herself just before surgery because it will make it more difficult to
heal. You don't want to lose a lot of weight after your surgery because
the skin may become even looser once again.
it's looks as though you're doing everything right and well on your way to
tummy tuck but try to accomplish your weight loss goals before you proceed
If you have liposuction completed, you only would need a small amount along the flanks to optimize your tummy tuck results. This is often included as part of the tummy tuck procedure. Completing liposuction of a different body location such as the thighs or the back would be completely up to you. A tummy tuck alone with minimal flank liposuction will give you great results.
Thank you for your question and photograph. You do look like a good candidate for a tummy tuck but you do have some excess fat beneath the skin which will present maximal tightening of your tummy skin. Liposuction, conservative liposuction during the course of your tummy tuck will improve your result.
Thank you for the pictures.
A tummy tuck in combination with liposuction in the waist, upper and lower back with fat grafting to the buttock will definitely enhance your body shape.
