Posted Mar 31 2011 3:59am

If daily workouts and a balanced diet haven't worked for you, then you can think of attaining a tighter stomach or get closer to a six pack abs through a tummy tuck.


Tummy Tuck with Liposuction


Tummy tuck, also referred to as abdominoplasty is a specialized procedure, performed to tighten overly stretched abdominal muscles and skin by removing excess fat. The procedure can be done along with liposuction to get the desired results. With the advancements in liposuction techniques, getting rid of excess fat from the stomach area has become easy and effortless. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, the area is liposuctioned and muscles are tightened if needed.  


For doing a standard tummy tuck, the incision is made above the pubic hairline and extends towards the hip bones near the natural crease at the bottom of the abdomen. If only a small amount of skin is removed, the incision may be limited to just above the pubic hairline.


Promises Outstanding Results


The number of available liposuction techniques has grown rapidly in recent years.   Different energy based liposuction techniques are offered now, which promise outstanding results and offer new hope to patients. Among the various options, one technique that is popular is Ultrashape liposuction. It makes use of waves of ultrasonic energy to break up fat cells. BodyTite liposuction is another technique, which brings the latest in minimally invasive technology for effective fat removal, and skin tightening. No invasive surgery is involved, so there is no blood loss or pain inflicted.
