While both procedures are extremely effective body contouring operations, a patient must consider their individual needs before making their choice. If you’re trying to get rid of some stubborn fat areas on your body rather than excess or loose skin, then #lipo might be right for you. However, if your trouble is excess skin, stretch marks, and/or poor muscle tone as a result of rapid weight loss or pregnancy, then a #tummytuck might be the better option. Whatever procedure you decide to choose, you shouldn’t make this decision without the assistance of a trained, experienced plastic surgeon. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Hugo Rodríguez!
