Liposuction can sometimes be used during a tummy tuck to take out stubborn fatty tissue deposits in the midsection area. This takes place after the skin layer has been loosened and raised. The plastic surgeon will use a cannula to break up and remove the fatty tissue.
Once the liposuction fat removal process is complete, the ab muscles are sutured closer together using internal medical stitches. Excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is redraped. The original incision is stitched closed.
