Liposuction Vs Tummy Tuck

Many people have this misconception that liposuction and tummy tuck are the same. However, a known fact is that both the procedures are different though they focus on improving the appearance of the midsection. Both procedures help in making your stomach appear flat, tight, and small. A plastic surgeon performs these procedures and classify as a cosmetic procedure.

These procedures help in altering the appearance of your tummy but they can’t be considered the best weight loss treatment. Although, the weight loss is minor and from a specific area so one can’t rely on them for comprehensive weight loss. The candidates for both the surgeries are same. It has been observed that people seeking the same type of cosmetic results go for liposuction and tummy tuck.

What Makes These Procedures Differ From One Another?


Liposuction at Mayfair Advanced Aesthetic Surgery is the right choice if you are aiming for the removal of small fat deposits. And, these deposits are found on the thighs, hips, stomach, and arms. The procedure removes fat from the area that is targeted. It includes decreasing the bulges and improving the body contour. As mentioned above, liposuction is not a weight loss program and hence it should be chosen by obese people. Many men and women opt for Liposuction in Ahmedabad. It helps them in improving their appearance and achieving an overall slimmer look.

Tummy Tuck

The best tummy tuck procedure in Ahmedabad not only removes fat from the abdomen but also removes excess skin. The abdominal skin stretches significantly during pregnancy or change in weight. It is here that tummy tuck comes into the picture. As it helps in restoring the flat and contoured appearance of the stomach. The procedure also includes bringing sit-up muscles or rectus abdominus together if they have been separated or stretched during pregnancy.

You may not be eligible for a tummy tuck if:

  • You have a chronic heart condition.
  • Your body mass index is over 30.
  • You are planning a pregnancy in near future.
  • You are trying to lose weight actively.

How These Procedures are Performed?


You may be sedated via IV for the procedure. The cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kedarnath Pandya might apply local anesthetic to your midsection if required. After the area gets numb, the surgeon will make a small incision near the site of the fat deposit. Further, a thin tube will be moved underneath your skin for loosening the fat cells. Then, a medical vacuum will be used to suck out the fat. Finally, an important point is that you might need several sessions for desired results.

Tummy Tuck

The plastic surgeon will give general anesthesia which will make you sleep. After the sedation, the surgeon will make an incision at the bottom of the skin which covers the abdominal wall. After the muscles get exposed, the cosmetic surgeon will sew the muscles in the abdominal walls if they are stretched out. Further, they will pull the skin to make it tighter over your abdomen. The surgeon will trim off your excess skin and close the incision with sutures. Tummy tuck in Ahmedabad doesn’t require multiple sessions. A cosmetic surgeon can finish the entire surgery in two to three hours.

What Types of Complications to Expect?

  • You may feel numbness in the targeted area. It is temporary but might become permanent.
  • Sometimes, the skin might appear less smooth.
  • Temporary pockets of fluid may form under the skin which needs to be removed.

Tummy Tuck

  • Changes in sensation and feeling of numbness.
  • Fluid accumulation needs to be drained.
  • Fatty tissue within the abdominal area may get damaged.

Whether you are looking for a liposuction or the best tummy tuck in Ahmedabad, you must always choose a renowned cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Kedarnath Pandya. His expertise and experience will ensure great results.
