Is an Abdominoplasty Also A Weight-Loss Solution?

If you're unsatisfied with the unwanted fat that has accumulated around your stomach, then don't feel as if you're alone. Many people in this situation are hesitant to undergo liposuction because they think it will leave a significant amount of skin to sag.

If you're within your ideal weight range and want to contour your abdominal area with cosmetic surgery, then you've probably heard about an Abdominoplasty. This procedure combines liposuction and manual skin removal to give you a tighter midsection.

The Abdominoplasty Process

The Abdominoplasty, casually known as the tummy tuck, is a process that consists of using liposuction to remove excess fat from the midsection. The fat is extracted with a tube known as the cannula inserted through an opening formed by an incision. 

Once the fat cells are removed, the surgeon removes the excess skin through excision, giving patients a new appearance. 

Does A Tummy Tuck Help With Weight Loss?


It wouldn't be wise to associate Abdominoplasty with weight loss. While the procedure itself does reduce a significant amount of cells within the body, the difference in weight would only be a few pounds. 

You must limit your view of a tummy tuck to a procedure designed to contour your midsection to prevent the thought of unrealistic expectations throughout your journey for a more aesthetic body.

Therefore, it's always recommended that anyone wanting to undergo an abdominoplasty be within their ideal weight.

Elite Body Sculpture Gives A Safer Tummy Tuck

While traditional tummy tucks have proven to be a procedure worth their salt, that doesn't mean that we should ignore the significant advances in cosmetic technology that allow patients to obtain substantial results still but with much fewer risks or complications.

That's where Elite Body Sculpture comes into play, the premium providers of technologically advanced fat removals that have shorter recovery times, no scarring, no risks, and virtually no pain.
