Liposuction first and tummy tuck afterwards?

Is it a good idea to have a liposuction now, and then get a tummy tuck later? In the meantime, I started dieting and exercising. However, not much progress yet.

Thank you for sharing your question and photos.  Yes, you can have Liposuction now and a Tummy Tuck later.  Some women have these procedures together, but if you would rather separate them, then that is completely fine.  You might have better results this way, because there are limitations to the amount of liposuction that can safely be performed on the abdomen during a Tummy Tuck to help ensure optimal incision healing.  I hope this was helpful to you. 

Best Wishes,

Liposuction and abdominoplasty, in skilled hands, can be performed safely at the same time. I do think that if you're willing to do it stages, and patient, you will have a better result in the end.
