Introduction to Combining Tummy Tuck with Lipo 360

Combining tummy tuck with ipo 360 is indicated when the skin redundancy of the abdomen is severe and when muscle looseness is present. Extensive skin redundancy precludes you from undergoing effective liposuction.

First, the actual maneuver of liposuction with the back and forth motion of the cannula is difficult as the skin moves with each thrust making the piercing of the fat ineffective. Furthermore, the removal of fat from areas of extensive skin redundancy will only result in contour irregularities.

The analogy we use is of a fruit such as a kiwi. If you remove the inside pulp, you will be left with wrinkly skin that is unattractive. Moreover, if you have muscle weakness that is making your belly bulge out like a balloon, removing the fat from under the skin, will not make an appreciable difference in your contour.

Patients are demonstrated the dramatic difference that a tummy tuck with muscle repair will have for them by having them push out their belly and then suck it in. This difference in contour when substantial is the difference that patients can expect with a tummy tuck that includes tightening of the loosened muscles.

The next consideration is that when tummy tucks are performed, the entire anterior contour is pulled in. The tightening of the tissues in the front has the natural effect of pushing out the sides in the flank region. This can be quite pronounced resulting in the appearance of what is called “ dog ears ” in the area of the love handles.

When “dog ears” are present attempts are made to liposuction the sides from the front side to provide patients a smoother appearance. However, the most effective method for liposuctioning the flanks is from the back. The difficulty arises from the fact that once a tummy tuck is performed, patients cannot be placed on their stomachs because of the tightening of the front tissues.

As such, it makes secondary liposuction of the flanks suboptimal. Instead, combining a tummy tuck with a Lipo 360 is very effective in contouring the entire torso and providing patients a high definition body contouring result.

Combining tummy tuck with a Lipo 360 is the ultimate body contouring surgical plan for patients requiring maximum excision of abdominal skin and muscle repair. This provides universal body contouring of the torso and stunning contour lines when viewed from all angles.

Patients are first placed on their stomachs and back contouring is performed. This includes tailoring both the flanks discussed above but the upper, middle, lower back, and thighs when necessary. Removed fat can also be recycled back into the buttock to allow for optimal buttock contouring. Then the patients are placed on their back so that a tummy tuck can be performed.

What’s the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction?

A tummy tuck and liposuction are both popular procedures for body contouring, but they target different aspects of the body. A tummy tuck is ideal for addressing loose skin and muscle laxity in the abdominal area, particularly after childbirth or significant weight loss. This procedure removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles to create a smoother, more toned appearance. Liposuction, on the other hand, is designed to target stubborn pockets of fat in various areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms. It is not specifically intended for addressing loose skin or muscle laxity.

A combination procedure, such as a 360 tummy tuck, can provide a comprehensive body contouring result by combining the benefits of a tummy tuck with the fat removal capabilities of liposuction. This approach can create a more sculpted and balanced appearance by addressing both loose skin and stubborn fat deposits. Patients can achieve a more defined silhouette and improved body confidence with a combination procedure.

The benefits of including liposuction with your tummy tuck

Adding liposuction to a tummy tuck procedure offers several benefits. Liposuction can effectively address exercise-resistant fat in the abdominal area, helping to achieve a more sculpted and contoured appearance. By removing stubborn fat deposits, liposuction can enhance the overall results of a tummy tuck, providing a smoother and more refined outcome.

Additionally, combining liposuction with a tummy tuck eliminates the need for post-surgical drains. This can significantly improve the patient’s comfort during the recovery process and reduce the risk of complications often associated with drain usage.

In terms of advantages, opting for a combined liposuction and tummy tuck procedure can reduce the overall risk of undergoing two separate surgeries. It also minimizes the recovery time and cost associated with having these procedures independently. Patients can benefit from a more efficient and streamlined process, achieving their desired results with less downtime and financial investment.

Ultimately, the combination of liposuction and a tummy tuck offers a comprehensive approach to body contouring, delivering superior results with reduced risk and enhanced convenience.

What is Tummy Tuck 360?

Tummy Tuck 360 is a comprehensive body contouring procedure that combines traditional tummy tuck techniques with SAFELipo, a specialized liposuction method, to target multiple areas of the trunk for transformative results. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck, Tummy Tuck 360 addresses not only the abdominal area but also the flanks, lower back, and upper abdomen.

During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdominal region, and the underlying muscles are tightened. SAFELipo is then utilized to sculpt and contour the remaining areas, removing stubborn pockets of fat and creating a more defined silhouette. This comprehensive approach allows for a full trunk transformation, achieving a more balanced and harmonious appearance.

By combining liposuction with skin tightening, Tummy Tuck 360 offers more dramatic and satisfying results compared to traditional tummy tucks alone. Patients can expect to see a significant improvement in the contours of their midsection, resulting in a slimmer, more toned appearance. Ultimately, Tummy Tuck 360 provides a comprehensive solution for individuals seeking transformative body contouring results.

The Benefits of a Tummy Tuck 360

A tummy tuck 360 is a comprehensive body contouring procedure that combines traditional tummy tuck techniques with liposuction to target multiple areas of the body. This approach not only removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen but also addresses love handles, flanks, and the upper and lower back for an all-around sculpted appearance.

The benefits of a tummy tuck 360 are significant. By incorporating liposuction, the procedure can effectively remove stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, resulting in a more sculpted and toned physique. Additionally, the combination of techniques can lead to reduced recovery time and less post-operative pain compared to separate procedures, as the overall trauma to the body is minimized.

The potential results of a tummy tuck 360 are a firmer, flatter abdomen and a more contoured silhouette. Patients can achieve a more proportionate figure with improved body confidence and self-esteem.

In conclusion, a tummy tuck 360 offers a comprehensive approach to body contouring, addressing multiple areas of concern with the added benefits of reduced recovery time and a more sculpted appearance.

Conclusion: Combining Tummy Tuck with Lipo 360

Combining a tummy tuck with Lipo 360 offers several benefits for body contouring. This combined procedure is best suited for individuals with excess skin and fat around the abdomen, flanks, and lower back. The tummy tuck removes loose skin and tightens the abdominal muscles, while Lipo 360 targets stubborn fat pockets for a more sculpted appearance.

One of the key considerations is the potential for skin tightening that comes with the combined procedure. By removing excess skin and fat, the skin can be re-draped and tightened for a smoother and more toned look. Additional procedures such as body lifts or thigh lifts may be recommended to address excess skin in other areas.

Patients can expect improved body shape and enhanced contours after undergoing the combined tummy tuck and Lipo 360 procedure. The outcome often includes a flatter abdomen, a smaller waistline, and a more defined silhouette. It’s crucial to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the potential outcomes and ensure realistic expectations for the results of this combined procedure.
