Have you looked into liposuction or a tummy tuck and discovered that individually, they just don’t answer all your concerns? What if the two procedures could be combined for one outstanding outcome? They can be, and at Rodeo Surgical Art, we have all your answers for what to expect, including one recovery period, and remarkable results.
How Does a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Work?
How do liposuction and a tummy tuck benefit each other as one procedure? Let’s first look at how they differ. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) addresses weakened abdominal wall muscles and removes diet-and-exercise-resistant fat pockets, then tightens skin. A horizontal incision above the pubic bone gives Dr. David Mashhadian access to sculpt your torso for a slimmer profile. Most patients find the pleasing silhouette well worth the resulting scar.
Liposuction begins with tiny, well-camouflaged incisions through which a cannula is inserted. Dr. Mashhadian takes great care to gently suction away stubborn fat and sculpt a more pleasing torso without creating excessive trauma to the surrounding tissues. This improves recovery times and minimizes discomfort for the patient.
Combining these two techniques into one procedure is often called lipoabdominoplasty, and Dr. Mashhadian has perfected his techniques for the ultimate in natural, smooth, and slimming results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have weakened abdominal muscles that protrude after childbirth, sagging skin, or stubborn fat despite diet and exercise, you may be an ideal candidate for lipoabdominoplasty. Men and women alike are candidates. Start with a consultation at Rodeo Surgical Art today.
Benefits of Combination Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
Together, liposuction and abdominoplasty are proven to give enhanced results that cannot be achieved by either procedure alone. A tummy tuck can tighten skin and repair muscle weakness where liposuction cannot. Liposuction targets stubborn fat in the flanks and love handles where a tummy tuck does not reach. Dr. Mashhadian has greater control over contouring with lipoabdominoplasty, and as loose skin is often the result of fat pockets, addressing both concerns at once achieves a more precise outcome with more thorough improvement. Better results, naturally smoother skin, and one recovery period. It’s the best of both worlds.
Dr. Mashhadian has also developed Recovery EXL™, a revolutionary combination of medications and surgical techniques that minimizes tissue trauma, reduces swelling, bruising, and inflammation, and results in a much faster, virtually pain-free recovery, many times without the need for narcotic pain medication. The tummy tuck is one of the most significant cosmetic operations available, with a reputation for a difficult recovery time. To have Dr. Mashhadian’s renowned skill and Recovery EXL™ technique in your corner is an absolute must.
What Results Can I Expect?
A lipoabdominoplasty may be exactly the combination of procedures you need to achieve a sleeker, more toned abdomen while addressing the sides and love handles at the same time. Your clothes will fit better, your profile will be slimmer, and overall, you’ll have a better, more natural body shape that sometimes diet and exercise just can’t achieve.
