As the growing popularity of the Miami Mommy Makeover has shown, often the combination of various procedures can produce the most transformative results – both physically and emotionally. For instance, if you have the excess fat around your stomach removed via liposuction, but still feel self-conscious about the excess skin in this area, you may not truly reap the benefits of your chosen procedure.
Last year, plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Swanson released a study on the benefits of "lipoabdominoplasty," which entails both liposuction and a tummy tuck, noting that his patients demonstrated improved self-esteem when undergoing each procedure separately, but saw the greatest boost with both together. Now, he has revealed a new approach to this joint treatment that can further bolster results while minimizing risk.
"Liposuction and abdominoplasty are common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures that are often performed together. However, few well-designed studies have investigated the outcomes of the combined procedures," a press release from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons states. "This new study includes systematically collected data in a large series of consecutive patients undergoing a consistent technique performed by a single surgeon."
Plastic surgery is an ever-evolving field, and specialists are constantly devising new ways to create transformative yet natural results that can address common physical concerns. If you have questions about tummy tucks, liposuction, breast implants and other treatments should contact board-certified Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Craft. Your health and satisfaction are Dr. Craft's primary concerns, and he will work with you to determine the right procedures.
