Lipsuction is best for relatively slim patients with noral BMI who diet and exercise but still have discreet ‘stubborn’ areas of concerm. It’s power is in removal of excess subcutaneous fat amd it relies on quality, elastic overlying skin which will “shrink wrap” to the underlying contour removed. Tummy tuck is an excisional procedure and best for those with loose, extra skin (often strecht marks and/or pannus) and usually extra fat as well. The goal requires removal of skin snd and fat. Having a good diet and exercise program will also put you in good stead for a nice result. More scarring is present with a tummy tuck, but if you need it is by far best optiom. Talk to a board certified surgeon.
