Am I a good candidate for Smart Lipo, liposuction or a mini tuck? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 7
From review of the photos, it seems you would be a good candidate for Smart Lipo (laser assisted liposuction). For patients with good skin quality and without a lot of redundant skin and fat in the lower abdomen, laser liposuction can provide both fat removal and some skin tightening. See a board certified plastic surgeon and good luck!
I think you would be a good candidate for lipo of abdomen, back and hips. Methods vary and I have done it with and without ultrasonic. I do not think smart lipo will get out all the fat and think you need to have realistic expectations as your weight will not go down much from lipo. I agree with Dr Morgan that losing a few pounds will enhance the result.

- You need an exam to know if you can get a flat stomach -
- You are slightly overweight, some of the fat is internal and liposuction cannot remove that fat.
- After liposuction, plan to lose 10 pounds and keep it off for your best result -
- Otherwise the fat will return to new areas (upper back, arms).

Liposuction / miniscar tummytuck
thank you for your question. If you have a good abdominal muscles you would be a good candidate for Liposuction. I like to use ultrasonic assisted Liposuction with the SAFE technique. This results in less blood loss and a smoother result versus traditional techniques. If you have Poochy tummy muscles then a mini scar tummy tuck would give you a better result. I helped to pioneer this surgery over 20 years ago. I hope you find this useful . Please watch the enclosed video.

Liposuction can help reduce the fat in the areas that bother you. A mini-abdominoplasty won't address the upper abdominal fullness you are demonstrating in the photos. Smart lipo is regarded by most surgeons as a marketing scheme and not proven in our literature to be more effective than traditional liposuction.
