Tummy Tuck + Liposuction

Tummy Tuck + Liposuction

The abdominal and flank regions are prone to showing weight gain and loose skin.  State-of-the-art surgical techniques are safe and effective in creating beautiful body contours making it very popular to address undesirable body changes following pregnancy and weight fluctuations.

Recommended Procedures

  • Liposuction alone is most appropriate in the presence of fatty deposits and good skin elasticity, and in the absence of loose skin.
  • Mini-Abdominoplasty is ideal for those with a mild amount of excess lower abdominal skin and/or rectus diastasis (separated core abdominal muscles).
  • Abdominoplasty alone is most appropriate in the presence of loose abdominal skin and in the absence of fatty deposits.
  • Lipoabdominoplasty  combines both abdominoplasty and liposuction for a beautiful trunk contour.
  • A Mommy Makeover refers to a single operation in which both abdominoplasty (with or without liposuction) and breast augmentation (with or without breast lift) are employed together to address post-pregnancy changes.

Other Options

While there is much hype surrounding non-invasive fat reduction and skin tightening treatments, none come close to the results that are achievable through surgical contouring.

How It’s Done

  • Liposuction involves very small hidden incisions to suction fat from problem areas.
  • In abdominoplasty, the skin/fat layer is separated from the core muscle layer (which may be tightened with permanent sutures) and excess skin is removed.
  • Laser Scar Therapy  helps to fade scars quickly and prevent thickening.

Safety

  • In Dr. Rad’s hands, body contouring is safe and he routinely performs this operation as an outpatient.
  • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery in an AAAASF accredited surgery center or a tertiary care hospital operating facility (Inova Fairfax Hospital, named the best in northern Virginia).

 What to Expect

  • This is an outpatient surgery taking approximately 1 to 4 hours to perform depending on the extent of surgery that is necessary.
  • Temporary moderate discomfort is common and is easily controlled with pain medications.
  • Recovery lasts 1 to 3 weeks depending on the extent of surgery that is necessary.
  • In abdominoplasty, drainage tubes are sometimes necessary to prevent accumulation of body fluids in the surgery site; they are removed between 7 to 14 days.
