How do you determine if you are a good candidate for Liposuction or Tummy Tuck? To start, you need to understand the difference between the two. Tummy Tucks are more intensive procedures than Liposuction. While Liposuction removes excess fat, a Tummy Tuck reconstructs the muscles of the abdomen and removes excess skin.
Liposuction is a procedure to remove stubborn fat that you can’t get rid of through diet and exercise. Liposuction is most commonly performed on hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back and arms. This minimally invasive procedure includes injecting the fat with a saline solution and sucking out the fat cells. You will most likely be home the same day as the procedure and back to work in about a week.
