Patients will often wonder if they should have a tummy tuck Beverly Hills or liposuction Beverly Hills. The answer depends on the quality of the skin and distribution of fat. Basically, women who have had one or more pregnancies and have stretch marks and loose skin will benefit from a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck removes the loose skin and tightens the abdominal wall. Liposuction can be combined with a tummy tuck but only on the sides (flanks or love handles). Patients who are good candidates for just liposuction are close to their goal weight and have good skin tone and elasticity. Patients who are under the age of 45 will have better results than older patients. Problems areas (ex. abdomen or outer thighs) can be addressed nicely with just liposuction in these patients. We recommend you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an in person exam to determine which procedure is best for you.
