What Is the Best Abdominal Procedure for Your Goals?

That lean, sexy abdomen you had in your youth might be eluding you now that your family is complete and you’ve dropped the baby weight. However, despite a healthy diet and rigorous exercise program, do you still find yourself frustrated with that middle section that continues to show a belly pooch, loose skin, and an extra layer of fat?

Excess saggy skin, abdominal muscles stretched by pregnancy, and stubborn fat accumulation are all conditions many women encounter. Figuring out the best way to achieve your goal of tightening your abdominal area as well as removing the excess fat is the challenge you now face.

Could a Lipoabdominoplasty Help You Achieve Your Goal?

To be able to show off your lean, tight abs at your next pool party, Dr. Arthur M. Cambeiro, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, NV, might be able to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction into a single surgical procedure known as a lipoabdominoplasty. It might even be possible to add in other procedures as outlined below to help you achieve your goal of tightening your abdominal area and removing that excess fat around your middle.

An in-person consultation with Dr. Cambeiro will help determine whether a single or combination procedure could help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Deciding on Your Individualized Surgical Plan

There are three key factors Dr. Cambeiro will review during your consultation:

  • The quality of your skin
  • Your muscle tightness
  • Any excess, protruding fat

Your age, diet, exercise history, genetics, and whether you’ve gone through pregnancy and childbirth are also considered.

What Are Your Surgery Options?

In considering the best surgery options to help you reach your goals, Dr. Cambeiro has a selection of body contouring plastic surgery procedures at his Las Vegas practice from which to choose. Each is designed to address specific body shape irregularities.


By removing stubborn fat from target areas, liposuction will help you achieve that toned body and enhanced figure you’ve wanted for a long time. Liposuction is employed to remove isolated pockets of stubborn subcutaneous fat from those pesky love handles, back rolls, and belly fat. The procedure is not intended to help you lose weight.

SmartLipo Triplex

Dr. Cambeiro prefers SmartLipo Triplex over traditional liposuction since it is enhanced with advanced laser technology using three laser energy wavelengths. It is minimally invasive with less bruising, bleeding, and swelling than conventional liposuction. The time spent in recovery and healing from SmartLipo Triplex is also much shorter.

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck tightens loose or separated abdominal muscles and removes stubborn fat and excess skin. The result is a smooth, toned, sleek, and slender, natural-looking abdomen.

Mommy Makeover

While you probably love everything about being a mom, the physical changes that come with the role can be challenging. After pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, you may have found that your body, breasts, and midsection have changed in ways that diet and exercise cannot reverse. Mommy makeover surgery performed by Dr. Cambeiro will expertly correct these changes.

Combination Procedure

In your case, it may be possible to address skin laxity and muscle separation as well as the removal of excess fat in the abdominal region, all in a single combined surgery. Dr. Cambeiro will evaluate your case and decide whether he can perform multiple procedures in combination or separately in stages.

In younger, healthy patients, a compound procedure may be more feasible, minimizing the overall recovery and healing time. However, in other cases, a staged approach may be more suitable to reduce the extent of the surgical trauma and recovery.
