LipoTuck™ – Excellence in Body Contouring
At Avante Plastic Surgery, we humbly believe that LipoTuck™ is the gold standard in body contouring not only in Houston | Sugar Land but worldwide; anything else is just an approximation. LipoTuck™ differs from the traditional tummy tuck in that it also incorporates significant liposuction to the abdomen, hips, love handles, back, pubis, and axilla.
In one procedure, we can remove excess skin, tighten abdominal muscles, contour your upper abdomen, and reduce waist and bra rolls. LipoTuck™ includes all tummy tuck benefits plus much more!
LipoTuck™ is a one-stage procedure that creates a highly pleasing abdominal contour and waistline. The results are simply remarkable and unmatched. We encourage you to compare our before and after photos with those of other surgeons. You cannot afford not to.
Why should you choose Dr. Ahmadi for LipoTuck™?
Simply put, it is all about the surgeon’s knowledge, experience, and results. Dr. Ahmadi pioneered the LipoTuck™ procedure to combine tummy tuck and liposuction in 2002 and has been perfecting his craft ever since.
Why do people choose LipoTuck™ over tummy tuck or liposuction?
A traditional tuck fails to address the upper abdomen, hips, and love handles. Patients undergoing this procedure frequently have residual upper abdomen, pubic, and bra bulges. These patients lack waistline curves and often seek liposuction later to correct what should have been addressed the first time. By perfectly combining lipo and tuck, LipoTuck™ offers a one-stage solution for body contouring.
Can I just get liposuction?
That depends on whether your abdominal skin is hanging. If there is any loose skin, liposuction makes the condition worse. Skin laxity usually results from rapid or severe weight loss (commonly seen after weight loss procedures such as Lap Band or gastric bypass) or stretch marks (frequently seen after pregnancy). During your consultation, Dr. Ahmadi can tell you if liposuction is all you need.
Is the recovery from LipoTuck™ longer?
No, the recovery is not longer than a traditional tuck. However, most patients report returning to their lives faster than friends who have had a tuck elsewhere. This is because of our carefully planned and aggressive recovery protocol. The fact that no drains are used in a LipoTuck™ significantly helps the recovery process. Usually, patients can drive a week or two after their surgery and return to a desk job a week later with lifting precautions. Of course, everyone heals differently.
