Q: "I’m trying to figure out which surgery is right for me. My ultimate goal is flat abs, and to be rid of my C/S pouch. Do I need lipo or a TT? I am 5’5", 210lbs, so I believe that gives me a BMI of 34.9 (Ugh). What’s best for me?"

Dr. Yovino’s Answer: If you’re going to choose one procedure it’s a tummy tuck…but the best approach is to stage the transformation with Liposculpting of the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, lower back, and lower part of the back bra rolls and then 3-6 months later proceed with a tummy tuck to deal with the extra skin.
