Has the tautness of your skin’s elasticity been weakened by significant weight loss, surgery or pregnancy? Is loose, flabby skin making you feel uncomfortable? If so, it’s time to consider either a tummy tuck or liposuction from Pollard Plastic Surgery.
If you’re ready to eliminate that extra skin and fat around your midsection, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Emily Pollard is an award-winning, board-certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon. She and her professionally-trained staff are here to educate you with strategic solutions that are perfect for your body.
Liposuction or Tummy Tuck? Which surgery is best for me?
Both liposuction and tummy tucks offer solutions for anyone who has a small amount of fat that has become difficult to eliminate. If your muscle tone is great, and you’re active and eat a well-balanced, healthful diet, liposuction is the perfect remedy in Dr. Pollard’s professional opinion. However, if you have loose skin that won’t tighten up, a tummy tuck is the procedure she will recommend.
Perhaps you have lost weight the old-fashioned way, through improved diet and exercise, yet you simply cannot eliminate those last few inches of fat – no matter how you target it. If you are looking to lose a couple of inches and firm up, liposuction via Vaser® Lipo will work beautifully for you.
The Vaser® Lipo system uses minimally invasive ultrasound technology for precision body contouring. It can be used to eliminate fat from many areas of the body, from love handles to thighs. Vaser® Lipo produces eye-catching results in just one procedure and the technology provides many benefits versus traditional liposuction treatments. Using precision contouring, Vaser® Lipo can help you to finally achieve that look you’ve always wanted.
If you have persevered through countless crunches and other fat-burning exercises while ensuring your diet is healthy, and still cannot obtain a firm, toned tummy, Dr. Pollard recommends the tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck is a surgery that eliminates not only additional fat but also skin that has lost its elasticity, allowing separated, weak muscles to replenish. The surgical term for this option is abdominoplasty. Once you have healed from your tummy tuck, your tummy will have a firm, smooth appearance.
