Are you frustrated with the way you look? Bathing suit season may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean you can’t invest in a bit of body sculpting to get the silhouette you crave. If you are particularly concerned about loose skin or extra weight around your waist and hips, you may be interested in the results of a recent study.

According to a press release from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), one surgeon has found that a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can produce excellent results. Plastic surgeon and ASPS member Dr. Eric Swanson of Kansas shared his experiences performing what he refers to as “lipoabdominoplasty” to remove love handles and other fatty deposits while tightening loose, sagging skin along the belly. Dr. Swanson revealed new techniques that have been devised to reduce the risks of both procedures while maximizing the benefits.

“In a previous study […] last year, Dr. Swanson reported high patient satisfaction rates and improved self-esteem in patients undergoing liposuction and/or abdominoplasty – especially the combined technique. The new results show that, with attention to some basic measures to reduce risk, excellent cosmetic results are achieved with a low complication rate,” the release states.
