Staten Island, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2018 -- Millions of Americans who struggle to get rid of stubborn body fat and sagging skin in their abdominal regions seek the help of plastic surgery to achieve flatter and smoother stomachs. Dr. Biagio Pacifico is using his experience as a board certified plastic surgeon to help patients understand the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction so patients can make an informed decision on which procedure will best suit their needs.

While undergoing a tummy tuck or liposuction surgery are both good options for attaining a flatter stomach, the two procedures produce very different outcomes. Tummy tuck surgery works to remove excess fat and skin from a patient's abdomen. Patients over 40 and women who have undergone multiple pregnancies would be ideal candidates for this procedure because they are more likely to suffer from reduced elasticity in their skin. Patients seeking a tummy tuck in Staten Island or Brooklyn, NY, should always enlist the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Unlike a tummy tuck, liposuction works to remove fat deposits from targeted areas of the body and does not help to tighten skin. The removal of stubborn fat deposits from isolated areas of the body helps to improve the shape and proportion of a patient's body. The ideal candidate for this procedure is someone who is under the age of 40 and whose skin does not suffer reduced elasticity.

Patients who suffer from both stubborn fat deposits and reduced skin elasticity would be candidates for undergoing both procedures at once. Dr. Biagio Pacifico is a board-certified plastic surgeon that offers plastic surgery in Staten Island and Brooklyn, NY.
