The field of plastic surgery has seen a surge in popularity for a combined approach to body contouring procedures. This approach involves combining liposuction with a tummy tuck to help patients achieve their desired silhouette. Two renowned plastic surgeons, Dr. Lara Devgan and Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, who are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, shed light on this rising trend.
A tummy tuck, medically known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, resulting in a smoother and tighter appearance. It can also address weakened or separated abdominal muscles, a condition known as rectus diastasis. Dr. Devgan explains that a tummy tuck is particularly beneficial for women who have excess subcutaneous fat and skin, or those who experience weakness in the abdominal wall due to childbirth or significant weight loss.
The combination of liposuction with a tummy tuck offers several advantages, one of which is achieving better overall body contouring. Dr. Jarrah-Nejad always performs liposuction alongside tummy tucks to improve the aesthetic outcome. He emphasizes the importance of addressing the flanks or sides of the abdomen, as neglecting this area can create a disproportionate appearance. By considering the body’s proportions and performing both procedures simultaneously, Dr. Jarrah-Nejad aims to provide women with optimal results in a single surgery, saving them from the hassle of multiple procedures and additional visits to the operating room.
Dr. Devgan further highlights the significance of combining liposuction with a tummy tuck. Without liposuction, the front view of the abdomen can appear boxy and rectangular, even if it appears aesthetically pleasing from a side profile. This “boxiness” can diminish the natural curves of a woman’s figure. By incorporating liposuction, the boxy appearance can be avoided, preserving the beauty of the female form. Dr. Devgan believes in enhancing the natural hourglass shape by sculpting the body, regardless of the patient’s weight or body mass index.
The combination of liposuction with a tummy tuck is gaining traction as it offers a personalized solution for each woman’s unique body and desires. In today’s world, where self-care and personalization are highly valued, more women are recognizing the benefits of this dual approach to body contouring. Surgeons like Dr. Devgan and Dr. Jarrah-Nejad are leading the charge in providing patients with results that enhance their natural beauty and femininity.
The future of tummy tucks looks promising, with the combined approach of liposuction of the flanks and tummy tucks becoming increasingly popular. This approach exemplifies the commitment of plastic surgeons to achieve the best possible outcomes for women. Patients can look forward to results that accentuate their natural curves and beauty through this two-in-one procedure performed by experts in the field.
