Tummy tuck surgery is designed to trim, tone, and sculpt your entire midsection. To accomplish this, board-certified Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole may need to remove excess deposits of fat from the abdominal area. If stubborn fat deposits threaten to obscure your tummy tuck results, liposuction will certainly be an option Dr. O’Toole explores.

Every tummy tuck surgery is customized to meet the specific needs of the patient. Some tummy tucks require the removal of excess skin alone. Others require the tightening of abdominal muscles and the removal of excess fat. Others still require a combination of steps for optimal results. What will be necessary during your Los Angeles tummy tuck can be determined during your initial consultation.


Liposuction may be used in conjunction with tummy tuck surgery to remove excess fat deposits. It may also be used as a stand-alone procedure in instances where tummy tuck surgery is not necessary.

With liposuction, our board-certified plastic surgeon can remove stubborn deposits of fat from the abdominal area to produce a noticeably slimmer appearance. During your consultation, Dr. O’Toole will assess your frame to help you determine if liposuction alone or as part of a tummy tuck will best help you reach your goals.
