How to Choose Between Liposuction and Body Contouring Surgery

Most liposuction and body contouring surgery patients have tried exercising and diet routines without success. This can be fat in the stomach after pregnancy or fat accumulation around the thighs and other parts. Getting rid of the fat permanently requires more effective solutions. Body contouring surgery is the best choice for extensive procedures beyond fat reduction. Liposuction surgically removes fat from the affected areas of your body for a slimmer contour.

Body Contouring Surgery

Body contouring comprises several procedures, surgical and non-surgical. These procedures focus on extra skin, excess fat, and reshaping specific areas. It includes; breast lift, face and neck lift, tummy tuck, upper body lift, thigh lift, buttock lift, and many others.

Body contouring offers a lot of benefits except losing weight. Consult an expert before undergoing the treatment to determine if you qualify. These procedures target various parts such as the back, arms, belly, buttocks: neck, and many others.


Not everyone qualifies for liposuction. It is advisable to talk to an expert to determine if it’s right for you. Liposuction aims to get rid of fat in specific areas of the body. This procedure helps to achieve the desired shape. Unlike contouring surgery, liposuction is more effective in areas where there’s tight skin.

Depending on the target area, the surgeon can recommend various liposuction techniques. Some of these techniques include power-assisted and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. In addition, the surgeon will leave temporary drains for drainage of fluids after the procedure. After treatment, Follow-up appointments help to mitigate surgical drains and other complications.

After either treatment, the surgeon provides you with recovery instructions, especially after surgery. This ensures you recuperate before resuming your daily routine.
