Abdominal Liposuction for Patients in Tampa
Abdominal liposuction is one of the most commonly performed liposuction procedures, as many men and woman find it difficult to get rid of small pockets of fat around the waistline through diet and exercise alone. Still, while many people struggle to lose stubborn belly fat, not everyone is an ideal candidate for abdominal liposuction. For the best results, a patient should be close to his or her target weight and have a good level of skin elasticity. As with all cosmetic surgeries, it’s also important that the patient have realistic expectations about their results.
The best way to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for abdominal liposuction is to visit an experienced, board certified surgeon for a consultation. If you live in Lutz, Clearwater, Tampa, Trinity, or any nearby community, you can meet with Dr. John Roach of the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to discuss your options for liposuction. Dr. Roach completed seven years of intensive training in general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery, and he has performed numerous liposuction procedures. He can assess whether you can benefit from abdominal liposuction, or if another course of action would be best.
For patients who also have loose or sagging skin around their abdomen, Dr. Roach may suggest a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, rather than a standard liposuction procedure. Tummy tuck surgery involves creating horizontal incisions along the lower abdomen, eliminating any excess fat through the incision, and then tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Oftentimes, liposuction is used to remove fat during a tummy tuck procedure.
