Differences Between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck operation and liposuction operation, they are among the most popular aesthetic operations around the globe without any doubt. There are similarities and differences between them. Let's have a look at the differences between a tummy tuck and liposuction surgery.

Liposuction can be applied to different parts of the body. There are several types of liposuction operations. One of them and the most common one is the Tumescent Liposuction. Known as fluid injection liposuction, the operator injects a medicated solution in the area before removing the fat. The solution consists of local anesthetic (lidocaine), epinephrine (hand made adrenaline), and an intravenous (IV) salt solution. lidocaine helps to numb the area while Epinephrine makes it hard to get swelling or bruising by lowering the blood pressure. The IV solution is to remove the fat. This procedure is the most primal but the most common and cheap one. May take a longer time compared to others.

Ultrasonic liposuction, this procedure uses ultrasonic sounds to burn fat molecules, later on, to be vacuumed. This takes a long time because this also includes the tumescent liposuction. Both liquids and ultrasonic sounds needed for this procedure.

Laser liposuction, the procedure we also use. It is done with general anesthesia; ultrasonic vibrations are used to turn fat molecules into a liquid form to be vacuumed later on. With the help of this technique, the are will no longer be able to gather fat. You are going to be free from the fat molecules in the area it applied forever! This will take time similar to the previous technique, but this is the most efficient among others.

Liposuction operations are done without any cut on the skin, only drains will be in for a night in the body. The patient will stay one night at the hospital recovering the next day.

Tummy tuck operation is widely chosen by patients all around the world. It needs the patient to rest two nights at the hospital for medical conditioning advantage. This operation has three different types; mini, normal, and a large tummy tuck a.k.a. called fleur de lis. This abdominoplasty operation is done by cutting the skin and taking the extra tissue away. That is the biggest difference between liposuction and tummy tuck. Bestify Group provides the finest quality of services with the master surgeons. We are here to help you to Bestify yourself!
