What is the Difference Between Liposuction of the Abdomen and a Tummy Tuck?

contact us

At Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery and , we offer a number of cosmetic procedures that will help you and other Port Huron-area residents achieve your aesthetic goals. One of our more popular procedures, probably because of its simplicity, safety and effectiveness, is liposuction.

Liposuction can remove stubborn deposits of fat from a number of body areas, one of the most common of which is the abdomen. Dr. Rouchdi Rifai will use the liposuction procedure to eliminate those fat deposits and give you a more attractive stomach.

In certain situations, a tummy tuck may be more appropriate. Where liposuction removes fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, the tummy tuck can also:

  • Remove excess skin
  • Eliminate stretch marks
  • Tighten loose abdominal muscles

The end result of a tummy tuck is a tight, taut, firm stomach. Liposuction, by contrast, will only remove fat deposits from the abdominal area.

Dr. Rifai will evaluate your situation, listen to your cosmetic goals and help you determine which procedure is right for you.

If you live in the Port Huron, Michigan area and you want to learn more about liposuction or a tummy tuck, please contact Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery and today.
