A question we're commonly asked is the difference in price between liposuction and abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck. A more appropriate question would be what is the best procedure for you? For patients that have limited amount of loose skin, mostly excess fat, or what we like to call adiposity of the abdomen, liposuction is the appropriate procedure. For those patients with more excess skin, more adiposity or fat of the abdomen, someone who has had children or who has a separation of the muscles of the abdomen, an abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is the correct procedure for you.
We do now offer the option of SmartLiposuction, which is laser-assisted liposuction. This does produce significantly more skin tightening than traditional liposuction. So some of our patients who were previously candidates for abdominoplasty to achieve the best possible results, can now be treated with excellent resulst using SmartLipo, or laser-assisted liposuction. If you have questions about whether you're a better candidate for a tummy tuck or liposuction, the cost of these procedures, or just want to find out more information, please do not hesitate to contact our office. We'd be happy to speak with you. The phone number is 484-222-0010 or find us on the web at www.mainlineplasticsurgery.com.
