Good candidates for liposuction at our practice in Plano TX include people who are already at a reasonably healthy weight and want to improve the appearance of their overall figure by removing fat from specific areas. People struggling with obesity are generally not good candidates for liposuction. Liposuction can be performed on patients in a wide variety of age groups. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that aging skin tends to lose its elastic quality. When the skin is less elastic, it may not ideally conform to the new shape the body has taken after liposuction.
Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is used to tighten and smooth the abdominal region, many times in conjunction with a liposuction procedure. Many people have the goal of a flatter, more attractive-looking stomach. Unfortunately, with loose abdominal skin, toning the underlying muscles may not be enough to provide a noticeable improvement. Both men and women can often achieve the results they desire through tummy tuck surgery. An informative consultation at our Dallas / Fort Worth – area practice with Dr. Alfred Antonetti can help those considering tummy tuck surgery to determine if this body contouring procedure is right for them.
