During 2020, we may have lost ourselves to overeating and gained weight, but there is a solution! If you think you are gaining weight and do not know which operation to have, you are in the right place. Although tummy tuck and liposuction operations may seem the same, they are actually very different, as we will mention below. Therefore, you should choose the appropriate operation method in consultation with your doctor.
Crunch, push-up, diet… I do everything but you say I can’t get rid of my belly? If there is too much skin and fat in your belly that do not go away despite all these efforts, you can have abdominoplasty, so tummy tuck surgery.
Tummy Tuck surgery is divided into two: full and partial. In a full tummy tuck, the entire abdominal area (up to the hips) will be cut and your belly button may be replaced. Partial or mini tummy tuck is used only in people with fat in the belly. That’s why you can choose the appropriate abdominoplasty depending on the area of your problem.
Liposuction is a fat-focused procedure performed on various parts of the body. The aim here is to kill the fat cells and remove them from the body. Liposuction application is generally performed in the belly, hip, hip and upper arm areas. It can be preferred by people who have local fat problems.
The recovery period after liposuction is short and leaves no scars on your body. There will be no consequences that could change the location of your belly button. It can be used in combination with different operations.
Which one should I choose?
The choice of abdominoplasty and liposuction operations depends on the patient’s body type and expectations.
• Tummy tuck surgery is generally used due to excess skin formed after pregnancy or obesity. This process is done to flatten the abdominal area. It can be preferred by people who have excessive deformation in the abdominal area. Since it is a detailed process, it can take a long time.
• If you are dieting and exercising and have fat in only a certain area, , you can choose liposuction. Liposuction should be used on people who still have skin elasticity. This application takes less time compared to tummy tuck.
People planning to become pregnant should postpone these two operations. If you are pregnant, you should inform your doctor about this. In case of different health problems, your doctor may suggest another alternative. Both tummy tuck and liposuction can be applied to all genders.
