If you’re planning a tummy tuck, you might be wondering whether you should combine liposuction with your procedure. While the right decision will depend on your unique situation, there are a few notable benefits to combining these two treatments into a single surgery.*
Best of Both Worlds
During a tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon removes excess skin and tightens loose or sagging skin and muscle tissue. However, abdominoplasty cannot address stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise alone.
Liposuction, on the other hand, won’t tighten excess skin, but can remove isolated fatty deposits.* Your plastic surgeon may recommend combining a tummy tuck and liposuction if both of these concerns are bothering you.
C.L.A.S.S.™ Tummy Tuck
The C.L.A.S.S.™ tummy tuck utilizes a special technique developed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Francesco Campanile. Combining liposuction with abdominoplasty, the C.L.A.S.S.™ tummy tuck is also drain-free, which can reduce the risk of complications during and after surgery as well as encourage a more comfortable recovery.*
