Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Hi,

I just wondered if anyone has had success with this and whether having a tummy tuck can really help improve the overall shape of your tummy and make it look nicer as most of the ads say it can?

Thanks

Sarah

Re: Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Both liposuction and tummy tucks can be pretty risky. With lipo you use a lot of blood (which is why they'll only do so much at a time) and there can be complications. I actually knew somebody that had a tummy tuck years ago. It was a worse case scenario-- the stitches (or staples, whatever) burst and he had to be rushed to the hospital. Both operations have been successfully, but I'd think it's better to actually lose the weight by more or less natural means. (I'm about to try a high-fiber, low-cal diet myself.)
