Can lipo help me or do I need a tummy tuck?
Thank you for your question and photo.
Evaluating from your photos you apper to be a very good candidate for Tummy Tuck and Liposuction this will give you your desired results. If you are unhappy with the look of your nose, you think that you would be much happier after a rhinoplasty operation; if you had an accident and the shape of your nose got worsened after this accident; then you can be a good candidate for rhinoplasty operation. It is a well-known fact that individuals with feeling themselves beautiful have higher self-esteem. Therefore; if the look or functionality of your nose bothers you, you can get benefit from a rhinoplasty operation.

You May Have Better Results With a Tummy Tuck
From your photograph, you look to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Fat removal through liposuction can exacerbate loose skin and leave you with more sagging skin tissue. A tummy tuck combined with liposuction could be a great option for you and may get rid of your stretch marks if you wish.
Ultimately, the decision is up to you, but it’s best to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon about your desired results to determine if liposuction or a tummy tuck (or both) is right for you. Good luck!
Liposuction or tummy tuck?
- In the photo at least, it looks as though you need a tummy tuck with liposuction at the sides.
- But to be sure this is right, you need to be examined and discuss the pros/cons of the two procedures.
- Some women - even though we, the surgeon feel a tummy tuck is better - find a liposuction is not as good but satisfactory - it is a personal decision.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Tummy tuck versus liposuction
It appears as though a tummy tuck will give you the best results. I think that if you just do liposuction you'll have so much excess skin afterward you won't be happy. However, I'd need to see you in consultation to give you a more detailed and exact evaluation.Thank you for your question!Dr. Schreiber, Baltimore plastic surgeon
Age and stretch marks
So in your favour is your age, against is the presence of stretch marks. Once the skin has been stretched to a limit, it loses its spring and stretch marks are the sign of this.Once present, it is highly unlikely it will spring back if only the fat is removed. You will need some kind of skin tightening / removal as well.Hope that helpsAdam Goodwin
Is a Tummy Tuck Needed?
Unfortunately, there is loose skin evident around the belly button and in general. I do feel a tummy tuck and liposuction contouring can make a big difference. I am afraid if you have liposuction only done, the skin will heal with unsightly folds, especially around the belly button.Good luck in your decision!Windell Davis Boutte, MD
