Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction

Are you tired of living with stubborn belly fat that just won’t seem to budge, despite a healthy diet and regular exercise? If, so you may be wondering if a plastic surgery procedure can help. However, which procedure is right for you? The two most common procedures used to help eliminate belly fat include tummy tuck and liposuction. Read on to learn more about these procedures and which one can help you meet your aesthetic goals.


Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure and is done using a thin tube called a cannula to suction fat out of the body. This procedure can be done on many areas of the body including the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, chest, neck, calves, and more. This procedure is only meant to remove stubborn pockets of fat, and cannot tighten loose skin.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is done to eliminate excess fat and skin from the abdomen, as well as tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles. In some cases, liposuction may also be used during a tummy tuck procedure to contour the abdominal area. Pregnancy and weight loss are the two biggest culprits for excess abdominal skin. This procedure can help individuals achieve a tighter abdominal profile.

Which One is Right for You?

Overall, if you are looking to eliminate excess belly bulge, liposuction may be able to help. However, if you are dealing with excess skin, fat, and weakened abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck may be the better choice. A consultation with Dr. Golosow can help to determine which treatment option can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
