Liposuction and Tummy Tucks San Francisco Bay Area – Part 2 of 4

Posted October 13, 2012 in Home, Liposuction, Lower Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy), Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Videos

My San Francisco Bay Area Plastic Surgery patients ask me every day about the differences between Liposuction and Tummy Tuck. They are two completely different operations; however, when patients are selected properly, both can give excellent abdominal rejuvenation. If you are wondering which is right for you, ask a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Joseph Mele, MD, FACS.

Last week, I emphasized the Liposuction half of the Liposuction and Tummy Tuck partnership. This week, one more Liposuction question, and then it’s all about the Tummy Tuck. This is segment two of four from KRON4’s Body Beautiful. Janelle Marie and the San Francisco Bay Area Plastic Surgery audience asked their questions, and I answered. Segment two is posted below.
