A lipo-abdominoplasty is a combination of two procedures that address issues with excess skin and fatty tissue around the midsection. Liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) combine to make the ideal treatment for many patients.
By combining a tummy tuck and liposuction, Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists can help you achieve a flatter tummy. Weight fluctuations and childbirth are the main reasons that patients may request a lipo-abdominoplasty. When the abdominal muscles and skin stretch to the point where the natural orientation is permanently changed, surgical intervention can restore aesthetics.
The abdominal muscles are tightened, which results in a reduced waistline and flatter tummy. Additionally, excess skin is removed and tightened to improve the appearance of the midsection. This combination of treatments is designed to produce better results for patients with significant excess skin and fatty tissue. The results will help to restore lost confidence and well-being.
How Is Lipo-Abdominoplasty Performed?
The liposuction is performed first to remove fatty tissue that impacts the shape of the midsection. There are a variety of methods used to achieve results through a liposuction procedure. However, the skills, knowledge and experience of the surgeon play the most important role in achieving excellent and long-lasting results. Dr. Jones is an expert in performing liposculpting and has taught associated techniques at Stanford University.
If you have considered liposuction and have excess skin around the midsection, adding an abdominoplasty is recommended. While liposuction may benefit patients with excess fatty tissue, it will not improve aesthetics if there is also excess skin. Dr. Jones will work with you to achieve the improvements you want to see. There are few cases where a procedure such as a lipo-abdominoplasty will not produce the desired outcome. Prospective patients can seek a consultation with Dr. Jones at Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists to discuss suitability.
The tummy tuck is performed by Dr. Jones, a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon with over twenty years of experience, at his Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists offices. For patients who are seeking a flatter, tighter tummy in Georgia, this procedure is ideal. It is important that your surgeon has the skills and knowledge needed to perform an abdominoplasty correctly. Dr. Jones’ long tenure in the field of plastic surgery makes him more than qualified to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
The lipo-abdominoplasty procedure can take up to four hours to perform. In most cases, patients can return home the same day. Drains are used to remove fluid from underneath any skin flaps. Dr. Jones will also use a compression garment and abdominal binder to aid in recovery. The binder is worn for several months after surgery and Dr. Jones will make recommendations related to activity levels during the recovery period.
Part of our commitment to excellence at Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists includes providing education to our patients. The best outcomes are achieved when patients make a full recovery without complications. This can be achieved through effective aftercare and patient adherence to post-surgery instructions.
