New Study: Combined Tummy Tuck & Lipo Offers Enhanced Results

Posted: October 22, 2013

A new study featured in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery-Global Open®, the official open-access medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) states that “a combined technique of liposuction and tummy tuck, designed to reduce surgical trauma, provides excellent patient outcomes with a low complication rate.”

Here at Aguirre Specialty Care in Denver, we offer “ASC abdominoplasty” which combines these two popular procedures for enhanced results, all in just one recovery. This “new and improved” take on tummy tuck combines minimally invasive VASER® liposuction with an abdominoplasty to create a taut, contoured and youthful-looking abdomen.  This approach reduces surgical trauma from tummy tuck by eliminating unwanted fat with VASER® lipo, which results in very minimal bruising and downtime.

“Women don’t simply want a flat tummy,” says Dr. Aguirre, “that want to reshape the entire abdominal area, enhancing an hour glass figure. By combining these two procedures, I am often able to provide even better cosmetic results than if a patient were to undergo a tummy tuck alone.”  Whereas abdominoplasty can only eliminate belly bulge, VASER® lipo can tackle other problem areas such as love handles, back fat, “muffin top” and more, providing 360° results our patients love to show off.
