The appearance of the abs is an aesthetic issue that matters both men and women as it is a very difficult area to define no matter the diet and exercise. The defined abs has become a reflection of health and harmony, people are in the constant search to achieve the goal, hence the success of the procedures that help eliminate abdominal fat. Abdominoplasty like liposuction are 2 of the most requested plastic surgery treatments by people.

According to a report by the American Society for Plastic Surgery, abdominoplasty intervention has increased by 107% since 2000 while the demand for liposuction continues to grow.

Liposuction allows us to define our silhouette by eliminating localized fat deposits, reducing and shaping the area to be treated. The procedure consists of minimal incisions through which a hollow tube or cannula is inserted through which the fat accumulations will be aspirated. There are many other areas where liposuction can be performed such as hips, back, buttocks, double chin and legs, etc.

On the other hand, the abdominoplasty is performed through a long incision from one end of the hip to the other, just above the pubis and below the navel, the result of removing all the lower abdominal skin. A second incision is made around the navel, to be able to transpose it to its proper position. The surgery leaves a permanent scar in the lower abdomen that, depending on the amount of excess skin, may be long or short but is hidden by the edge of the underwear.

If the weight loss has not been too much and there is no skin excess or stretch marks and the abdominal walls are not distended, liposuction will be enough to locally correct the excess fat and shape the figure.

If there is excess skin and stretch marks, a tummy tuck will be the most indicated to remove the skin between the navel and the pubis in the amount that is required. With the help of the surgery, the muscles that, over the years and weight changes, have become distended, forming a kind of inner corset joining the muscles from above the navel to the pubis, thus obtaining a tighter and flatter abdomen.
