How Liposuction or CoolSculpting® Could Improve Your Tummy Tuck

Did you know that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States at the moment? And CoolSculpting® is rapidly climbing the charts as the top nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. Not only can these body contouring options work great as standalone procedures, they can also be used to complement the results of a tummy tuck.

Why Add CoolSculpting® or Lipo to a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck removes loose or sagging skin while repairing lax or separated abdominal muscles. However, the fat removal capabilities of abdominoplasty are limited compared to liposuction or CoolSculpting®.

Similarly, while liposuction or CoolSculpting® can reduce pockets of stubborn fat, neither can do anything to tighten muscles or improve loose skin. If you’re considering liposuction or CoolSculpting® for fat reduction, it’s important to be aware of their limitations.

Combining additional contouring with a tummy tuck can help you tackle excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat at once.

Health Benefits of Adding CoolSculpting® or Lipo to Tummy Tuck

Aside from the aesthetic benefits, there may be some health benefits to combining procedures. When you reduce excess fat and loose skin around the abdomen, you could find that it’s easier to exercise, not to mention gaining the motivation to maintain your improved figure. Don’t underestimate the potential boost to your self-confidence!
