If you’ve had a few babies, or lost some weight, you may wonder whether a tummy tuck or liposuction is the best option for you. The answer to this question is dependent on the person and the desired outcome.

Liposuction is a great way to get rid of excess fat in many areas of the body; however, it will not get rid of stretch marks, excess skin or any scars left from previous surgeries. A tummy tuck will remove most stretch marks, excess skin, and scars, and may also get rid of fat. A tummy tuck can also bring together abdominal muscles that may have separated during pregnancy.

In many cases, both a tummy tuck and liposuction can work well together to create the desired outcome. Trying to decide which procedure is right for you are best done with a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
