Tummy Liposuction removes excess fat to give your stomach a new look. A younger more firm stomach may be achieved with liposuction.

Procedure: Liposuction is performed by making a few small incisions in the elbow or armpit. A cannula, a surgical tube, is attached to a vacuum pump. The cannula is inserted and the excess fat is suctioned while the cannula is moved around under the skin. Another technique used is tumescent technique. A saline solution is injected into the area, which makes the fat easier to break up and be removed. The tumescent technique uses a solution with local anesthesia in it to be injected prior to surgery. This technique minimizes blood loss, removes more fat, and has the fastest recovery time. The procedure takes about 1 hour to perform, and usually local anesthetic is administered. This procedure is normally done as an outpatient procedure.This can be done in conjunction with Arm Lift.

Post-op: You may resume normal activities after 1 week. You may experience stiffness, soreness, pain, burning, swelling, bleeding, and temporary numbness for a few days. You will need to wear a support garment for 1-3 weeks following surgery. Some patients experience dimpling, lumpiness, numbness, scarring, discoloration, or sagging skin. More severe complications may include: blood clots, infections, excessive fluid loss, shock, build up of fluid in the lungs and anesthetic toxicity.
