If you are unhappy with the appearance of your belly, tummy, or abdomen, you may be considering plastic surgery to get the flatter tummy you desire. However, you may not know what procedure is right for you. Both liposuction and tummy tuck are good body contouring procedures for the right candidates. Which one is right for you depends on what you are looking to correct.

Liposuction is good if you:

  • Are primarily looking to get rid of belly fat
  • Have good skin

On the other hand, a tummy tuck is best if you:

  • Have poor skin tone or excess skin
  • Have stretched abdominal muscles due to significant weight gain, extended periods of weight gain, or pregnancy
  • Would also like to get rid of or reposition stretch marks

The best way to know which procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso, so he can listen to your cosmetic goals, then evaluate your skin and tissues to make specific recommendations.
