Tummy Tuck Contouring
Getting a pleasing contour to the abdomen and having that contour blend nicely with the surrounding areas is always one of the goals of a tummy tuck. Achieving this result depends a lot on the tissues of the patient. For example, some very thin patients with loose skin or stretched muscles may not need any liposuction at all. Other patients may benefit from some liposuction of the adjacent areas such as the pubic area or flanks to achieve an optimal aesthetic result. How can this be done without liposuction? Some fat can be removed by excision through the tummy tuck incision. Sometimes the incision needs to be extended around the waist to remove excess fat and skin on the flanks and back. Overall I think it is unlikely that the scar will look like a tight belt around the waist but having a consultation and examination is your best option to have this question answered for your specific situation.
