“Do I need a tummy tuck, or is liposuction enough?” This is a question that many people have when thinking about recontouring their abdomen. In order to choose your best option for correction, you first need to identify the issue you are trying to correct.
If you are bothered by the round appearance of your stomach due to the presence of excess body fat, you can take care of the issue with liposuction. However, liposuction does not tighten the skin, so if your skin has become stretched and loose, liposuction will not leave you with a tight and flat abdomen. You will need to undergo a tummy tuck to have the excess loose skin surgically removed.
