How much fat is the max you will do before you suggest a tummy tuck?

I'm reading about all these other liposuction out here now an I'm amazed because I don't want to get cut and be down for months. How much fat is the max you will do before you suggest a tummy tuck? Because I see the before and after pictures and these people barely have stomachs.

Thank you for sharing your question.  If you have sagging abdominal skin, but do not want the scar or the down time associated with a Tummy Tuck, then you certainly can have Liposuction performed.  It is a personal choice.  Most Surgeons, (including myself) would not recommend doing this because after the Liposuction surgery you will have even more sagging skin.  If this is something you are able to live with, or maybe consider having a Tummy Tuck later on, then that is fine.  Please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for a Liposuction consultation.  I hope this was helpful to you.  

Best Wishes, Dr. B.

Thank you for the the question and TT is basically to remove excess skin and liposuction excess fat.  After an examination your surgeon will be able to inform you what will give the best result
