Tummy Tuck and Liposuction in Surrey

Have you tried to attain a flat stomach with diet and exercise but find yourself coming up short? Like it or not, this is a common experience for adults — but the good news is that cosmetic procedures can help. Our team of outstanding plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Group at City Centre offer both liposuction and tummy tuck to help tone up your midsection. Read on to find out whether you are a good candidate for one or both surgeries.


As its name suggests, liposuction suctions out excess fat cells from targeted areas of your body. Since belly fat can be particularly stubborn and difficult to lose with diet and exercise, liposuction is one of the best ways to finish molding your contours after you have gotten close to your weight loss goal. This fat reduction procedure can also address your hips and back for a more complete treatment.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty focuses its attention on loose skin, specifically the skin around your midsection. Skin that has stretched (due to pregnancy or weight gain) may no longer be elastic enough to fit tightly around your smaller shape. To address this problem (sometimes called a “muffin top”), a plastic surgeon can remove excess skin and re-drape the remaining skin to achieve a flat appearance. Abdominal muscles that have separated can also be reconnected to make the stomach look firmer.

Choosing a Surgery for Your Midsection

The right body contouring surgery for you ultimately depends on your cosmetic issues. If stubborn fat deposits are your main source of dissatisfaction with your body, then you are probably a good candidate for liposuction. If you have loose skin that makes your midsection look thicker than it is, then tummy tuck is probably the better approach. During consultation, our team of plastic surgeons can help recommend a treatment plan that best meets your cosmetic goals.

In some cases, a combination of tummy tuck and liposuction is most appropriate. Many patients have both loose skin and excess fat, so addressing both issues simultaneously is the best way to get their desired results.
