Lipoabdominoplasty is the combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction in the abdominal region. The body contouring procedure helps to remove excess skin in the tummy area, and also helps remove fatty deposits as well. The fatty tissue is removed with liposuction, and then a tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the overall appearance of the tummy. Dr. Kenrick Spence is a specialist in this procedure and can give you the look you want while providing the best care for your needs.
The lipoabdominoplasty procedure begins with liposuction. Fatty tissue is filled with saline solution and then removed with suction. The body contouring available with liposuction is impressive. After the liposuction is completed, the traditional tummy tuck is performed. The result is a more defined waistline that will allow you to show off your new form, giving you a new lease on life, ready to face the world with confidence.
Recovery After Lipoabdominoplasty
You will be able to return to your home on the day of your procedure. Drains will be installed, and the area will be bandaged. Dr. Spence will instruct you on proper aftercare. A compression garment will be provided to help aid in the reduction of swelling and should be worn for six weeks. You will be placed on limited activity, and Dr. Spence will explain the restrictions and the expectations for healing time. Most people see the final results after a few months.
