Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures because of its ability to sculpt and shape problem areas to create a slimmer, sexier silhouette. However, many patients are also discovering that lipo can also be used in conjunction with other procedures to take their results to a whole new level.
1. In Addition to a Tummy Tuck
Individuals who experience significant weight loss are often frustrated by the loose, flabby skin that remains after all those pounds are gone. A tummy tuck is an excellent way to remove that excess skin. By combining a tummy tuck and liposuction in the same surgery, a surgeon can address loose skin and tissue while further sculpting with liposuction to create a completely rejuvenated figure.
2. As Part of Breast Reduction
Tumescent liposuction has also proven to be very successful in breast reduction procedures. With the use of very small cannulas, surgeons are able to reduce and reshape breast volume by removing excess fat for additional refinement on top of the primary reduction surgery.
3. Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
A growing trend in breast augmentation is the fat transfer method, which is very appealing to women who want to enhance their breasts without implants. With this procedure, fat from another area of the body, often the abdomen, is removed via liposuction and then transplanted into the breasts to increase their size. For many women, the idea of their new breasts being “all them” and not implants is very appealing, and the results are beautiful and natural.
