What is Abdominal Liposuction?

Abdominal liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that targets the localized fat deposits around your stomach through suction. It is a surgical procedure performed using a local anesthetic in the doctor’s office in less than two hours. It’s the perfect choice for you if you have fat around your abdominal area. It is not a replacement for weight loss. Since the procedure uses Laser-Lipo to physically remove the fat cells from your abdomen, it’s ideal for body contouring and giving you a well-defined core.

How Does Abdominal Liposuction Work?

With abdominal liposuction, you only need a few small incisions to get the results you’re looking for. At Texas Liposuction Specialty Clinic, our nationally-renowned surgeons use a cannula to target and suction fat from the areas of your stomach that you want to slim. We use the Awake Liposuction method. This means that instead of general anesthesia and its increased risks, we use only local anesthesia and mild sedation.

Abdominal Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck

We hear a lot about these two procedures, but they are entirely different: The abdominal liposuction procedure eliminates fat using a powered sucking device called a cannula that removes fat cells and tissue. It is done under local anesthesia. It is recommended for patients with good skin elasticity. It works best for men and women with a BMI of 30 or less. Abdominal liposuction is an outpatient cosmetic surgery procedure done generally in less than two hours. It does not leave any scars. Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed on the lower abdomen. It involves general anesthesia.  The plastic surgeon will perform two cuts to remove loose skin. He will sew the muscles in your abdominal wall together if they have become stretched out. He will then pull the skin tight over your stomach. It is recommended for patients who have lost elasticity due to pregnancy and have excess skin that cannot resorb itself with exercise and diet in their midsection. There will be visible scars where the doctor has performed the incisions to remove the excess skin.

What Happens on the Day of Your Surgery?

You have come in having organized a lift to take you home. You will be meeting with your surgeon to review your pre-op tests, discuss the procedure, and answer any last-minute questions you may have. The cosmetic surgeon might draw on your body the areas on which he will perform lipo You will receive a mild sedative to make it a more pleasant experience. Tumescent liposuction does not require general anesthesia, which allows you to talk to your surgeon during the whole procedure.

Tumescent Liposuction: The surgeon will start with small incisions. He injects a combination of lidocaine, sodium bicarbonate, and epinephrine mixed in a Saline solution to numb the area. The doctor will then use a cannula to access the fat deposits. Fat transfers to other areas of your body are currently very popular. You may combine your stomach liposuction with a Brazilian butt lift. Our liposuction surgeons offer revolutionary ways to combat fat while sculpting and contouring your body. If you do not avail yourself of a fat transfer, the cannula is equipped with a laser fiber that will liquefy the fat cells. They will be sucked out, and the body will expel the remaining dead tissue over time.

The surgeon can utilize the SmartLipo Triplex laser during the surgery so we can achieve superior skin tightening. The body will create new collagen, and the skin will tighten a few weeks after the surgery. As part of the surgery, the doctor will perform body contouring.

Results You Can Expect from Abdominal Liposuction

Abdominal liposuction is fantastic for getting rid of stubborn fat deposits in your stomach area. But, will you see a 6-pack ab after the procedure? The answer is maybe. Some patients do see those abs pop out once the layer of fat covering them is gone, but not always. What you can count on, though, is a tighter, flatter stomach, improved muscle definition, and an overall slimmer look in the treated areas.

Recovery / Downtime

The recovery time for abdominal liposuction can be anywhere from 4-12 weeks. The first 36-72 hours after treatment is the most uncomfortable part of recovery. Patients often experience a combination of numbness and soreness as the anesthetic wears off. Avoid activities that involve twisting, turning in the first three days after surgery to minimize soreness. During this time, patients may take medication prescribed or recommended by our surgeons to help them manage discomfort. All patients should observe the following guidelines for recovery after an abdomen/tummy liposuction procedure:

Recycle the Fat!
