Stomach Liposuction

Stomach liposuction is perhaps the second or third most popular form of liposuction available to the world today. Behind only face-lifts and perhaps breast procedures, stomach liposuction is an effective means of ridding the tummy area of unwanted fat, reducing the appearance of cellulite, and getting rid of excess skin after a drastic weight loss. Many who opted for surgeries such as gastric bypass surgery also choose later to have stomach liposuction or a similar procedure.

Other experts argue that the stomach now ranks higher than the face-lift in popularity. While the contest rages on, the facts remain; stomach liposuction works and is very affordable. This procedure works by sucking out the fat from pockets within the stomach, granting the appearance of a flat (or at least flatter) stomach and abdominal area. While many forms of liposuction cannot tighten the muscle wall or give the appearance of well-formed muscles, the flat stomach is an excellent starting point for most people attempting to look thin and healthy.

Stomach liposuction also reduces the appearance of saddlebags and love handles, which are most commonly seen in middle-aged women. While men often have their own forms of stomach liposuction (removing that annoying beer gut, for example), the saddlebag problem faced by women seems to be one of the number one reasons for stomach liposuction.

The cost of stomach liposuction varies depending on how much work needs to be done to the stomach area. In general, the average cost is between $2600 and $6500, but this can change dramatically by choosing the plastic surgeon and method of liposuction alone. Overall, stomach liposuction will continue to be popular for a long time, as patients have found that the cost is well worth the recovery time for this highly effective procedure.
