Liposuction and tummy tuck at NYC Lipo are commonly utilized together to restore a flatter-looking midsection. The abdomen is a difficult area to shape and slim among patients. Layers of stubborn belly fat are difficult to remove, even with consistent cardio and dieting. Moreover, hanging skin after substantial weight loss or pregnancy can result in a drooping-looking midsection that cannot be addressed through traditional exercise. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can correct these issues for a tighter-looking abdomen. Stomach liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits around the midsection and flanks to enhance muscle tone. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is ideal for tightening weakened or stretched abdominal muscles to restore definition, as well as removing drooping skin around the stomach. Combining stomach lipo with a tummy tuck can create a firmer, long-lasting midsection. Our liposuction and tummy tuck surgeons at NYC Lipo offer a variety of lipo procedures and tummy tuck techniques for personalized treatment.

Stomach liposuction removes excess fat from the midsection safely and precisely, thanks to innovative lipo technology. Thin cannulas are inserted into the skin through tiny incisions and begin suctioning belly fat with precision. Fat deposits around the flanks and sides can be reduced, as well as love handles or excess fat buildups around the midsection. In addition, minimally invasive lipo techniques can be utilized to promote skin tightening during your tummy liposuction procedure. These options use advanced lasers to eliminate excess fat and firm skin. Heat from the laser tightens subsurface tissues, leading to firmer-looking skin after undergoing tummy lipo.
Tummy tuck surgery can complement your stomach lipo procedure by tightening loose abdominal muscles and lax skin that cannot be treated with tummy liposuction alone. During your tummy tuck, excess belly skin can be removed and re-draped to eliminate loose or hanging skin around the midsection. Moreover, the abdominal muscles themselves—which are often weakened or stretched over time or due to pregnancy—can be tightened to eliminate tummy bulging. Incisions are carefully placed across the stomach to remain subtle and inconspicuous. Tummy tuck surgery can target the upper, mid, and lower abdomen, depending on your needs and goals. Patients can also opt for a mini tummy tuck, which solely targets the lower abdomen and produces a shorter incision, as well as less healing time. Dr. Levine will discuss the specifics of your tummy tuck procedure, as well as which tummy tuck technique is right for you, during your consultation at our NYC office.

Liposuction and tummy tuck in NYC can restore firm contours to your midsection for long-lasting results. Stomach lipo removes stubborn belly fat that has not responded to traditional weight loss techniques. Flanks, bulges, and love handles can also be eliminated with tummy liposuction. Combining tummy tuck with lipo removes and repositions lax skin around the belly. Patients who suffer from hanging skin as a result of aging or substantial weight loss can opt for tummy tuck surgery. Moreover, female patients may have weakened abdominal muscles due to the effects of pregnancy. Weak stomach muscles can be tightened surgically with a tummy tuck for a firmer-looking core. Dr. Levine will discuss if liposuction and tummy tuck surgery is right for you during your consultation at our NYC office.
Patients undergoing tummy tuck with liposuction require general anesthesia. Dr. Levine will discuss which body contouring procedure is best for you, as well as the ideal anesthetic for your treatment, during your consultation at our New York office.
When combining liposuction and tummy tuck in NYC, mild swelling and bruising are common in the weeks following surgery. Many patients return to work, along with most of their daily activities, in one to two weeks. Certain physical activity, including exercise, may require up to six weeks of rest and recovery, depending on the extent of your tummy tuck with lipo procedure. Stomach liposuction aftercare, as well as tummy tuck healing time, ultimately varies from patient to patient.
Long-lasting, natural-looking results can be expected with stomach lipo and tummy tuck surgery. The removal of excess belly fat can result in a slimmer waistline, while the re-draping and trimming of loose abdominal skin leads to a firmer midsection. Those with weakened or stretched stomach muscles can undergo a tummy tuck to tighten the core.
In order to maximize your liposuction and tummy tuck results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your liposuction and tummy tuck procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our liposuction and tummy tuck aftercare suggestions, click here.
