Lipo Abdominoplasty / Modern Abdominoplasty
Liposuction can remove fat from targeted areas, and an abdominoplasty can remove excess skin and tighten the abdomen wall on the stomach. Lipo-abdominoplasty combines both procedures for a comprehensive contouring and reshaping of the abdomen area. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers lipo-abdominoplasty to create a slimmer, tighter abdomen for his patients.
Lipo-abdominoplasty is an advanced version of the tummy tuck procedure. The standard tummy tuck does not remove fat tissue. It only addresses stretched skin and muscles, tightening the abdomen muscles and removing excess skin. Between the skin and muscles on the abdomen is fatty tissue. For those with stubborn belly fat, loose skin and stretched abdomen muscles, lipo-abdominoplasty can address all the contributing factors and restore a flatter, toned stomach.
Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
Many people believe a tummy tuck and liposuction go hand-in-hand. That is not the case. The original or traditional tummy tucks never included liposuction or fat removal. Older methods only removed excess skin after pregnancy or weight loss, evolving to tightening of the abdomen wall in the standard and modern tummy tuck. Combining liposuction and tummy tucks only began in the 1990s, and has been perfected with advanced options in liposuction and surgical techniques.
Dr. Anastasatos is a lipo-abdominoplasty specialist and a top plastic surgeon with decades of experience in creating exceptional results for his patients. He offers several different options in abdomen contouring and tummy tucks, including lipo-abdominoplasty. This method is ideal for men and women who have lost weight that have a flabby stomach with excess skin and fatty tissue. Lipo-abdominoplasty can also be used as part of a “Mommy Makeover” to restore a flatter, tighter abdomen after pregnancy.
