The following information will provide you with a basic understanding of the situations where tummy liposuction can be utilized effectively, but it is recommended that you work together with your surgeon to find a procedure that will work best for your specific body.
A previous pregnancy tends to stretch the abdominal muscles and cause the lower abdomen to bulge to a certain degree. This curvature of the abdominal wall muscles determines the flatness or the shape of the abdominal silhouette after liposuction. Nevertheless, the vast majority of women who have been pregnant are ultimately very happy with results obtained by liposuction alone, and do not require an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
The Pfannenstiel incision is the name for the incision across the lower abdomen that is typically made for Cesarian sections, or a hysterectomy. A common but undesirable consequence of a Pfannenstiel incision is a persistent bulge of subcutaneous fat just above the incision. Tummy Liposuction can be used here to easily rejuvenate the body to a more smooth and beautiful contour.*
