Mummy Tummy Liposuction
Mummy Tummy Liposuction
It takes a considerable amount of time and a strict diet and exercise regime to lose the baby fat gathered during pregnancy. For some women diet and exercise can work alone. However, for those women that do not benefit from diet and exercise, tummy liposuction using VASER liposuction technique can be a great option. It is also an alternative to traditional abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck.
Liposuction of abdomen is an outpatient procedure and it can be performed under conscious sedation. The recovery is much faster than traditional abdominoplasty and you are not left with a long scar to your abdomen.
Mummy tummy liposuction can be combined with abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. In fact combining these two procedures results in better contouring of the abdomen.
Additionally, abdominal liposuction can be combined with breast augmentation or breast lift. This combination is typically called as mommy makeover in which a woman tries to get back her pre-baby body.

Difference between tummy tuck and VASER liposuction
|Tummy tuck||VASER liposuction|
|Large scar across abdomen||Smaller scar|
|Best suited for excessive loose skin||Can tighten moderately loose skin|
|General anesthesia is used||Performed under conscious sedation|
|Recovery takes longer||Faster recover|
|Used to correct problems in abdominal area||Can be used on any body part|
|Will repair muscle separation||Will not help muscle separation|
Anesthesia is given using intravenous sedation.
Then, very tiny incisions are made wherever the liposuction is needed. Generally somewhere between 2-4 tiny incisions are made. The abdominal area is filled with a tumescent saline solution that contains local anesthetic and helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (this will minimize any blood loss and reduce bruising). This saline solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up fatty tissue with the Vaser system’s ultrasound energy.
Next, a small probe is inserted into the treatment area. It transmits sound energy to break up and liquefy or melt the fat, while preserving other important tissues. This technique selectively removes the smaller deposits of fat surrounding specific muscle groups. In turn, this then enhances the natural contours of the muscles.
Finally, a gentle suction is used to remove the liquefied or melted fat. This process minimizes trauma to surrounding tissue structures such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. This approach promotes smooth results and rapid healing. The advantages of vaser liposuction include:
- Smooth contouring
- Low to minimal quickly
- Resume activities quickly
- Minimal swelling and bruising bruising
- Gentle wrist motion by surgeon: Precise sculpting and contour
