What percentage of full tummy tuck includes lipo suctsion of upper part of tummy as well as dog ears and mont area? Is it dangerous to include them as part of the procedure or its part of the new ways of doing tummy tuck today, since I heard if its not included its the old school way to do tummy tuck? Thank you.

A: Plastic surgery, like most areas of medicine, is advancing. Combination procedures are advantageous to many patients – they are cost effective, limit exposure to anesthesia, reduce down time and minimize time away from work and family. Many plastic surgeons are comfortable combining gentle liposuction in the same surgery as a tummy tuck. In fact, most of my tummy tucks these days include liposuction. I frequently reduce the mons pubis with liposuction. The best way to be certain that a combination of procedures is safe for you is to discuss it with your plastic surgeon.
