There is a great reason why surgeons combine liposuction of the lower back and flanks with a tummy tuck procedure. Combination of surgical procedures is performed to enhance the body parts that need to be improved. Every surgeon looks at the aesthetic units that surround the abdomen every time a tummy tuck is performed. Some surgeons do not pay attention to the flanks and lower back. The abdominal wall boundaries include the lower chest, the flank, the sides, and the pubic area on the inferior part. The fat from the flank area extends from the anterior part of the abdomen all the way to the lower back. If these areas are not liposuctioned, your waist is not going to be as small as you want it. Also, your belly might look good, but when you wear some jeans, you’re going to have a fat roll on the lower back that you dislike.
When this happens, liposuction on the lower back can be performed to blend the aesthetic unit. In this way, better results will be achieved. In performing a tummy tuck, the surgeon must pay attention to every detail so that better results will be achieved. The hourglass tummy tuck recreates the hourglass silhouette by performing liposuction on the lower back and flanks, creating the look of a small waist and wider hips. If you still have concerns regarding the procedure, never hesitate to ask questions with your surgeon. Clarify your concerns regarding the combined procedures. It would be better if you fully understand the surgical procedures before you engage yourself to it. This is because some patients undergo liposuction without clarifying their concerns. This made them anticipate with unrealistic expectations. This should be avoided so that the patients will not be unsatisfied with the results after the procedures have been performed.
