What is liposuction of the belly ?
Through small and discreet incisions, the plastic surgeon sucks out the abdominal fat with cannulas. The amount of fat removed and aspirated can vary from 500 cc to 6 liters depending on the case.
The results of liposuction of the abdomen are definitive. Indeed, the localized fat that is removed never returns to the treated areas provided that a healthy lifestyle and a constant weight are maintained.
It is possible to combine tummy tuck liposuction with :
- liposuction of the hips and love handles
- liposuction of the back
- liposuction of the inner thighs
What are the objectives?
The goals of tummy tuck liposuction are:
- Reduce excess belly fat
- Refine your waistline and your silhouette
- Treat belly fat
Who is liposuction of the belly intended for ?
The ideal candidate for liposuction of the abdomen will have:
- a body mass index below 30 (moderately overweight)
- no excess skin, satisfactory skin quality
- well-toned abdominal muscles
- a stable weight, no weight gain.
- regular physical activity
If liposuction of the abdomen is not recommended because of distension of the skin or the muscles of the abdomen, we can recommend a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) which will allow you to regain a flat abdomen.
What is the procedure?
Before the intervention
Two medical consultations with your plastic surgeon to analyze your tummy and define a strategy adapted to your case.
Procedure for abdominal liposuction
Liposuction of the abdomen takes place in the operating room of a clinic under local or general anesthesia, depending on your case. The choice of anesthesia is discussed between you and us. There are many types of anesthesia and each patient will find the solution adapted to his case.
The average hospital stay is 24 hours.
During the operation, the plastic surgeon sucks out the fatty deposits from the abdomen using surgical cannulas (rigid tubes) that are introduced through small incisions. At the end of the operation, a compression garment is put in place to limit postoperative edema. This compression garment will have to be worn for one month in order to obtain an optimal result.
The aftermath is marked by moderate pain and bruising for about two weeks. The resumption of your activities is possible on average after one week.
The final result of liposuction of the abdomen is visible after three to six months.

Pregnancy after tummy tuck?
After your tummy tuck, it is quite possible to become pregnant. Indeed, abdominal liposuction allows the removal of excess fat cells from the abdomen and these results will last beyond your pregnancy.
During pregnancy, we fear distension of the abdominal muscles caused by the volume of the baby. This distension of the rectus abdominis muscles can lead to a spreading and weakening of the abdominal diastasis (diastasis recti).
If the diastasis is significant and bothersome, it can be treated with a tummy tuck with diastasis cure. Find out more about the Mommy Makeover.
What is abdominal etching?
For those who wish to improve the definition of their abdominal muscles, it is possible to perform a high definition abdominal liposuction, i.e. abdominal etching, which will eliminate the superficial fat located above the muscles.
No matter how much exercise some people do, they will never be able to achieve well-defined abs because of a persistent layer of fat that covers the muscles.
This fat is often caused by genetics and is almost impossible to remove on your own, which can be frustrating. This is especially true for the male belly.
Abdominal etching uses liposculpture to remove fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, while emphasizing the lines of the abdominal muscles.
