So you want a tummy tuck to give your midsection a new shape after losing weight or to repair your abdominal muscles after having children? If you want to get more out of your tummy tuck procedure, consider adding the body-sculpting treatment of liposuction to your surgery. The combination of the tummy tuck and liposuction can give you a shapelier final result. Dr. Mona Alqulali performs the tummy tuck and liposuction procedure as well as other body-reshaping surgeries.
Designed to remove unwanted fat from the abdominal area and tighten the muscles of the midsection, the tummy tuck procedure holds additional benefits for patients, including reducing back pain and relieving stress urinary incontinence, according to a new study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The tummy tuck was the fifth most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States in 2017, according to the annual statistics report from the American Society of Plastic Surgery. The procedure is especially popular for women who want to regain their pre-pregnancy shape after childbirth, but many of these same women report medical benefits after their surgery, too.
The tummy tuck is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. In fact, there were nearly 130,000 tummy tucks performed in the U.S. last year, a 2 percent increase over the previous year. If you're considering a tummy tuck procedure with Dr. Alqulali, read on to find out how you can benefit from this procedure and have a great experience after your surgery.
