There’s nothing quite like liposuctionfor targeting and eliminating stubborn fat that won’t seem to go away through diet and exercise. Liposuctionhas long been the preferred plastic surgery procedure for swimsuit season.Your plastic surgeon can use liposuction to gently sculpt and refine the contours of your body. Remember that it takes some time to heal from liposuction and you’ll have some swelling for several weeks afterward, so consider planning your liposuction surgery well before bikini weather hits.
If you have loose abdominal skin, consider combining liposuction with a tummy tuck.
