Tummy Tuck vs. Liposuction

Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction Cincinnati Plastic Surgery

Are you looking to get rid of excess fat on your stomach? At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we offer two different types of plastic surgery to help eliminate stomach fat: liposuction and a tummy tuck. The two go about removing fat in different ways but can be effective for getting rid of fat as long as you don’t gain a lot of weight following removal. If you’re curious about a tummy tuck vs. liposuction, Cincinnati Plastic Surgery is here to answer any questions you may have about the different procedures.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck helps give everyone the look they’ve always desired for the stomach. This surgery helps remove excess stomach skin, stretch marks, and can help tighten the abdominal muscles. That’s why a tummy tuck is also knowns as an abdominoplasty. Dr. Martin has performed many tummy tucks over the years. If you’re not sure the best type of tummy tuck based on your needs, you’ll go over the options during your surgical consultation and select the right type of tummy tuck for you then.


On the other hand, liposuction helps to remove fat from different areas of your body. It won’t remove any skin or stretch marks that you may have. And while a tummy tuck is limited to having surgery only on your stomach, liposuction can be performed on many different areas of your body, including on your stomach, thighs, back, arms, and more. If there’s areas on your body that has a large deposit of fat, we can perform liposuction to help remove it.

Can Either Procedure Be Part of a Package?

First off, liposuction can be performed with a tummy tuck. If this procedure is right for you, it will give great results. Additionally, liposuction and a tummy tuck can both be part of a Mommy Makeover, a surgical package designed for moms to get their pre-baby bodies back.

If you’re looking into fat grafting augmentations, like the Brazilian Butt Lift, we’ll retrieve the fat from your body using liposuction methods. Using your own fat helps drastically reduce the likelihood of rejection because the fat comes from your own body.

Is One Better Than The Other?

Liposuction and a tummy tuck both aim to accomplish different things, so there’s no real way to determine whether one is better than the other. During your surgical consultation, we’ll figure out if one procedure is better than the other for your personal needs.
