It is a body contouring technique that put together the cosmetic surgery procedures liposuction and abdominoplasty. The combination is done in order for the patient to achieve superior results that cannot be done with either of the procedures alone. Learn more about lipoabdominoplasty here.
How Is Lipoabdominoplasty Different From Each Standalone Procedure?
Typical abdominoplasty makes a bulging abdomen firmer and flatter by removing excess skin and also tightening loose muscles from the abdomen. Typical liposuction, on the other hand, makes the body “sculpted” by removing unwanted fat. Combining these two procedures, the patient can expect much better results than going for just any one of them. Moreover, the patient can expect less post-operative downtime.
