To work on a tighter and flatter looking midsection, an abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck surgery, is the most ideal choice. A tummy tuck surgery includes the elimination of abundant skin found in the lower mid-region, and can likewise fix the abs. Liposuction includes utilising tiny cannulas to eliminate excess fat. In any case, this treatment is the most suitable only for the people who actually have extreme skin laxity, as the skin should contract once the fat has been eliminated. This is the place where lipo abdominoplasty comes into the picture. 

Your doctor will recommend an abdominoplasty with lipo 360 when there seems to be too much abdominal laxity which doesn’t go away with diet or workout. Lipo abdominoplasty blends together the procedure of tummy tuck and liposuction - so you can have abundant skin eliminated through the tummy tuck surgery , and have liposuction around 360 degrees all the way around the abdominal area simultaneously for removing the fat cells as well.

The procedure of lipo abdominoplasty is generally performed under local anaesthesia. The first step in lipo abdominoplasty is when your doctor injects a solution which is mixed with saline, vasoconstrictor and a lidocaine - which is known as tumescent fluid. This solution is passed into the fat cells of the abdominal region which then assists in reducing the swelling or bleeding, thereby stimulating the removal of fat during the liposuction process. The procedure of liposuction is performed for eliminating a huge amount of fat from the abdominal region, back or flanks. Once the liposuction is over, a cut will be made in the lower abdomen, right from the hip bone till the bikini line. This part of the skin is lifted up the navel in a special plane, after which it is isolated. 

A tunnel dissection is performed to uncover the upper abs after which the muscles are made tight. Once the upper stomach skin is pulled down over the lower part of the mid-section; abundance skin is taken out, and the edges are stitched. The fluid that was gathered beneath the skin fold might be drained out or that space might be pre-closed based upon the doctor’s decision.
