Plastic surgery patients who have received tummy tucks, liposuction or both reported high rates of satisfaction, according to a study by Dr. Eric Swanson. The study was published in this month’s issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

The study found patients who received both liposuction and a tummy tuck had a satisfaction rate of more than 99 percent. According to the study, 99 percent of patients who received a tummy tuck and liposuction also said they would recommend the combined procedures to people they knew.

Many of these patients reported improved self-esteem and improved quality of life following their procedures. The study included 360 patients with an average age of 42.

A tummy tuck eliminates saggy skin hanging around the midsection. A tummy tuck also improves the contours of your body by eliminating an abdominal area that protrudes outward. Tummy tucks are often chosen when sagging, inelastic skin is created by:

  • Weight loss
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Genetic factors

Liposuction can be performed in combination with a tummy tuck for optimal body-sculpting results. While a tummy tuck reduces excess skin around the midriff, liposuction removes isolated pockets of fat from various areas of your body.
