In many cases, rapid weight loss or plastic surgery can be necessary for people to avoid serious health complications. If this applies to you, the question becomes, what procedure do you need? Some wonder whether they would be best served with a tummy tuck or liposuction. Consider a recent article for the Index Magazine titled “Tummy Tuck Vs. Liposuction.”
According to the author of the article, “People, particularly women, are most likely to store weight around the mid section. Whether you have a stubborn bit or a larger problem area, it can feel impossible to achieve a toned, healthy tummy. Well the good news is that there are a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help make the seemingly impossible, possible. The two most popular and effective methods are either a tummy tuck or liposuction. But what is the difference? Cosmetic Surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani explains which procedure would be best for you: ‘Tummy tucks (also known as abdominoplasty) address excess fat and skin around the middle, and can create the appearance of a flatter midriff. Tummy tucks are particularly popular with women who have had babies and developed a ‘mummy tummy’ after pregnancy, with loose or sagging skin that is hard to tone back up’… ‘Liposuction is one of the five top surgical procedures that was carried out back in 2014. Liposuction removes unwanted fatty deposits in certain areas of the body, leaving the patient with a much more defined shape. There are many parts of our bodies in which this procedure can be carried out on, such as abdomen, hips, legs, breasts and even our chin.’… If you feel it is time for you to do something about your body insecurities, then the choice is yours! Body confidence is not something we are all blessed with, although if you want this to change then the surgical option of a tummy tuck or liposuction could help you.”
