Combined liposuction/tummy tuck offers best of both procedures

Detailed Analysis of Combined 'Lipoabdominoplasty' In the combined "lipoabdominoplasty" procedure, patients initially underwent ultrasonic liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen and flanks (love handles). Liposuction was followed by abdominoplastyor "tummy tuck"to eliminate excess abdominal tissue and loose skin. Outcomes after lipoabdominoplasty in 150 patients were compared to liposuction alone in 384 patients and abdominoplasty alone in 17 patients.

Notably, no liposuction patients developed seromas--collections of fluid under the skin--which is attributed to limited ultrasound to reduce tissue trauma. There was a low (five percent) rate of seromas after abdominoplasty. Dr. Swanson writes that seromas have led some plastic surgeons to leave behind some abdominal fat and connective tissue during abdominoplasty in an effort to reduce this risk. He bel
