Can I Do High Definition Liposculpting After a Tummy Tuck?

As high definition liposculpting and mommy makeovers continue to increase in popularity, patients commonly ask if they can have abdominal high definition liposculpting after a tummy tuck. Typically, patients are extremely happy with their mommy makeover and tummy tuck results, however, as they continue to increase their activity after a tummy tuck they often want to further define and contour their abdomen.

When a tummy tuck is performed, there is often a limit to how much liposuction can be done on the central abdominal area to preserve the blood supply, and thus minimize the risk of wound healing issues. No question, there is an incredible transformation, but some patients want to further improve the abdomen to create an athletic aesthetic appearance!

High definition liposculpting of the abdomen is typically performed at least 6 months after the initial tummy tuck procedure. This will ensure that the swelling has resolved and will give your plastic surgeon the best opportunity to sculpt and shape the abdomen. The high definition liposculpting of the abdomen can also be combined with Renuvion, or other skin tightening techniques. The tighter the skin, the better overall appearance of the High Definition liposuction.

After a tummy tuck, the majority of the loose skin has been removed which allows for sculpting and defining of the abdominal area. When defining this area several options exist for patients in terms of the degree of definition that the patient desires. The most common request is for soft definition, which is the vertical definition of the abdominal muscles, but some patients prefer a more athletic appearance and more aggressive definition.

Tummy tucks and abdominoplasty procedures are incredible transformative procedures, however, the results can further be defined by High Definition liposuction. Once the excess skin has been removed with a tummy tuck then the final contouring can be performed with high definition liposculpting. Call our team to learn more about this process.
