Everyone’s heard of Liposuction and Tummy Tuck surgery, is hard not to when faced with pictures of celebrities who’ve undergone one or the other on a near daily basis. The question is, do you know the difference? Many people wrongly believe that both procedures can aid with weight loss in actual fact, they’re designed to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat (in Liposuction’s case) and to firm and tighten your abdomen (Tummy Tuck). With that in mind, how do you know which of these two procedures is right for you? Let’s take a look at the main differences between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) surgery.
