The field of cosmetic procedures has evolved a great deal. Cosmetic surgeries are not so scary anymore. The advancements in medicine has now made surgeries much easier to perform and more effective as well. The recovery times experienced by patients are also reduced. Among the surgical procedures available, an abdominoplasty is among the most popular corrective surgeries available for improving one’s abdominal contours.

What Is Lipoabdominoplasty?

As the name indicates, this procedure is a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty. This killer combination can help create beautiful results for those who have been struggling to shed stubborn abdominal fat for ages.

It is important to remember, however, that this works best when the person opting for the surgery is trying to shed excess weight and tries to maintain a constant body weight that is within their healthy weight range. Several of the complications that are usually associated with traditional abdominoplasty are avoided by adopting lipoabdominoplasty.

There might be slight variations in the actual steps followed in the procedure. The necessary amount of fat that needs to be removed, the amount of sagging skin causing the abdominal flab, and other factors determine the exact technique required. One thing that remains the same is that both liposuction and abdominoplasty take place in the same surgery instead of sitting in for two different sessions.

Your surgeon will first utilize liposuction to remove the excess fat in the abdominal region. The excess tissue and skin causing the flab are then removed and the incision is stitched back.

The Benefits Of Lipoabdominoplasty

While the fat cells are extracted and the skin is corrected, other sections of your body will be left unaffected. The lymphatic vessels are not disturbed during the procedure. The treatment is considered to be safer than traditional abdominoplasty and is said to be more effective as well.

There are no blood clots and other risks involved in other conventional surgeries to correct abdominal sagging. The nerves and blood vessels in the abdomen region are not harmed during the procedure. So, overall the healing process here is simple, quick, and comfortable if you take the appropriate amount of time to rest. Any swelling experienced after the procedure is also observed to be much less than that in other procedures and will subside quickly.

Better contouring and reshaping of the abdomen is possible through a lipoabdominoplasty. Liposuction can help achieve great results even in cases where minor fat deposits are observed. And the abdominoplasty performed along with this helps make the abdomen region appear well-toned and aesthetically pleasing.

You can expect minimal post-surgical marks from the treatment and the incisions will be carefully placed to keep them hidden as much as possible. As a result of having smaller incisions, you can also expect to recover at a much faster rate.
