Women and men who are considering going under the knife to perfect their bodies may be interested in a new plastic surgery option in which a tummy tuck procedure is combined with liposuction.
This dual-procedure, coined ASC Abdominoplasty, is a new sculpting technique that allows the surgeon to do two procedures at once. Until now, combining these two surgeries was frowned upon, for fear of added complications such as poor healing and skin necrosis, but with this new style of surgery, it is possible to do so safely.
"I am pleased to offer this procedure because many of my clients are mothers who may work out and eat well, but still find that they are unable to be rid of loose skin," said a Denver-based plastic surgeon. "The ASC Abdominoplasty [Tummy Tuck with Liposuction] provides an excellent solution to this common problem. Patients experience vastly improved results due to the combination of liposuction and tummy tuck."
Tummy tuck procedures are intended for those who lose extensive amount of weight and have extra skin or are for mothers who recently went through pregnancy.
