If you are unhappy with the way excess deposits of fat are impacting your abdominal area, liposuction by itself is often an effective way to address the problem. With liposuction, Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Diehl can target fat deposits, helping restore a toned and slim physique.
When stubborn deposits of fat are joined by loose skin, stretch marks, and separated abdominal muscles, liposuction alone will be insufficient. In these instances, you will most likely benefit more from tummy tuck surgery. With this procedure, Dr. Diehl will remove excess fat and skin, and tighten abdominal muscles to slim and strengthen your entire midsection.
What’s Right for You
Both tummy tuck surgery and liposuction are body contouring procedures, but they address different problems. During your initial consultation with Long Island tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Diehl, your entire frame will be examined to determine which option is right for you. Liposuction is a less invasive procedure, making it the better choice when it is suitable. However, if your needs exceed the capabilities of liposuction, Dr. Diehl may recommend a tummy tuck. Each situation is unique and the ideal procedure for you is best left to the determination of Dr. Diehl.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your midsection and would like to learn whether a tummy tuck or liposuction is right for you, please contact Dr. Gregory Diehl today to schedule your initial consultation at our Jefferson Station, Long Island office.
