Although both procedures can slim down the abdominal area, they are not much alike. A tummy tuck involves the removal of skin and fat along with tightening abdominal muscles, while liposuction only removes fat.
Liposuction is better for localized fat deposit problem areas, while a tummy tuck is better for people with loss of abdominal muscle tone and loose skin, often following pregnancy or extreme weight loss.
Both procedures grant a slimmer look, but through different methodologies. Liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck for more effective results.
