There are plenty of plastic surgery options for people who are interested in body contouring, including tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) and liposuction (many times just referred to as “lipo”). What do these procedures do and which is the best option for you?
Loose skin and fat around the abdomen can linger despite living actively and eating right. This is particularly common in women who have had children, due to muscular stretching, or those who have lost a lot of weight recently. Tummy tucks retighten loose abdominal muscles and remove excess fat in the abdomen.* They can even improve the appearance of stretch marks and minimize scars left from a C-section.* Dr. Campanile customizes each tummy tuck to the individual patient’s needs.
Long the standard of body contouring, liposuction at our Denver office is just as essential as ever.* This procedure can remove unsightly fat deposits from nearly anywhere in the body: abdomen, thighs, hips, upper arms and even your neck and chin area.* In fact, liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck for additional abdominal contouring.*
Although lipo should never be used as a substitute for diet or exercise, it can complement living a healthier lifestyle. Many times, even after our target weight is reached, our body still holds onto pockets of fat in the midsection, hips and elsewhere. If this sounds all too familiar, you may be a great candidate for lipo.
