If you have lost a significant amount of weight, but you still have not achieved the figure you’ve always wanted, you may want to explore different cosmetic procedures. Although diet and exercise is the best way to stay healthy and fit, some fatty areas of the body are just too stubborn to respond to working out and eating right. Liposuction and tummy tuck procedures can help patients who have lost an immense amount of weight to achieve their ideal figures. So, what are the main differences between these two procedures, and which one is right for you?

 

Tummy Tuck in Cleveland

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, takes away excess fat and skin from the abdominal region, making the area slimmer and firmer. The best candidates for this procedure are people with excess fat due to recent weight loss, pregnancy, and aging.

 

Liposuction

This procedure works to remove small areas of fat that are most commonly located in the abdomen, hips, thighs, face, and buttocks. People who may be slightly above their average weight are good candidates for this procedure. Candidates must also be in good health and have somewhat firm skin.
