Sometimes, Abdominoplasty is assumed as liposuction, which is done to eliminate excess fat deposits in aspiration via vacuum. Doctors can combine both operations to get the best results. Always keep in mind that lifting the abdomen is an excellent way to restore the aesthetics of the figure.

When is This Operation Not Recommended
