WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIPOSUCTION AND A TUMMY TUCK?

IN RIVERSIDE, CA

Both remove unwanted fat but in different ways.

Liposuction will remove fat by extracting the fat through a cylindrical tube (cannulae) with negative pressure (suction). It will not affect, or repair separated abdominal muscles (after pregnancy or significant weight loss) nor will it reduce excess skin or loose skin. In fact, the skin may become looser after liposuction because of the “deflation” of fat and volume loss. Thus, is why we include Vellashape III (a skin shrinking device) with all our liposuction procedures.

Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) surgically removes the excess fat directly from the abdominal AND:

  1. Tightens/repairs the stretched and separated muscles after pregnancy or significant weight loss.
  2. Dr. Hardesty includes flank liposuction and a non-narcotic pain pump with each tummy tuck.
