Gain a beautiful body contour with Lipoabdominoplasty

Lipoabdominoplasty is an advanced technique to remove the excess skin and fat from the abdominal region. It is a combination of liposuction and tummy tuck that helps to tighten sagging skin and loose muscles. With the help of this popular surgical procedure, one can get a flat and appealing belly that he or she has desired for long. It is a minimally invasive procedure and is immensely beneficial for people who have been trying to lose weight but are not been able to put the necessary effort due to lack of time and will.

The right candidate for Lipo abdominoplasty

People after sudden weight loss and women after their pregnancy period can go for lipo-abdominoplasty. Gaining excess weight and pregnancy can make one's skin stretch abnormally in the abdominal region. But once the pregnancy period is over or after a sudden weight loss, the skin starts to sag.  To get rid of this extra sagging skin and to regain the original body contour lipo-abdominoplasty is the best option.


The surgery is performed under general anesthesia.  Liposuction is the first procedure in the treatment. In the first step, fat is removed using a suction technique in the abdomen region. After the liposuction, the second procedure is abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. An incision is made between the belly button and the pubic hairline to remove the excess skin in the region and to tighten the sagging muscles. Next, the belly button is moved to match the person’s new figure. After the surgery, the wounds are stitched. All these procedures take around three to four hours.

Recovery after the surgery

  • In most cases, patients are allowed to leave the hospital on the same day of the surgery.
  • A temporary tube is placed under the incision to collect the fluid
  • The patient needs to wear a tight compression garment for a few weeks in order to reduce the swelling
  • The patient should avoid strenuous activities during the recovery period
  • If the doctor permits the patient can return to work one or two weeks  after the surgery
