Thank you for the question.
Generally speaking, liposuction is a tool that is often used during the time of tummy tuck surgery. Different plastic surgeons utilize this tool differently; some are more “aggressive” than others. In my practice, I frequently utilize this tool to treat adipose tissue of the flanks and pubic areas during the tummy tuck procedures.
In your case specifically, whether or not you should undergo liposuction surgery will depend mainly on your goals; if you are concerned about adipose tissue of the flank or back areas, best to have the liposuctioning performed.
I would suggest you spend additional time discussing your goals, plans, and expectations directly with your plastic surgeon, in front of a full length mirror. Working together you will come up with the best plan to achieve the desired outcome.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps.
