Shu Cosmetic Surgery announces today that they are now offering complimentary liposuction of flanks for each qualifying patient undergoing a full tummy tuck. Dr. Steven Shu has been performing lipoabdominoplasty, an advanced type of tummy tuck, for the last three years. The new style of tummy tuck significantly improves the contour of the tummy with a quick recovery. Some patients request the liposuction on their flanks as an added service and extra cost. Dr. Shu found that liposuction of the flanks significantly improves aesthetic result in the body contouring, so he decided to perform complimentary liposuction at the same time during the tummy tuck surgery at no extra cost to the patient.

A traditional tummy tuck is involved in removing excess skin and fat with dissection, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. However, it involves more traumas with extensive incisions and bleeding, which leads to more complications. The result of a traditional tummy tuck is usually not ideal because of more fat left in the mid-section of upper abdomen and bulkiness in flanks.

Lipoabdominoplasty, which has combined liposuction with a new style of abdominoplasty, has allowed surgeons to transform patients' tummies after child birth and/ or weight loss into a beautiful shape. Liposuction is a less invasive technique that can effectively remove excess fat in the abdomen and flank to improve the tummy tuck result, with less invasive methods and shorter incisions.

“We always strive to achieve high quality cosmetic surgery services with cutting-edge technologies and new surgical techniques.” Dr. Shu said, “Lipoabdominoplasty is clearly the procedure of choice for patients opting for a tummy tuck. It offers a greatly improved abdominal appearance due to the aggressive liposuction in the abdomen and flanks.”

By adding complimentary liposuction with the tummy tuck, it not only improves the body contouring result, it also reduces the cost of service. Therefore, the patient’s satisfaction with lipoabdominoplasty is very high.
