Is it OK to have lipo of the hips and flanks along with a TT?

Q: I read that lipo combined with a TT increases the chances of clots and complications. Is this only a concern if its abdominal lipo plus a TT? I am having a full TT so my scar will go over my hips .

A: It is rare that I perform a tummy tuck without liposuction in my surgery center outside Atlanta. Most people who find themselves in need of a tummy tuck would also benefit from liposuction for the best cosmetic result. There was a time when it was thought that combining liposuction of the abdominal area with a tummy tuck could compromise blood supply to the area and negatively impact healing. In healthy patients the risk is low. Having liposuction in an area other than the abdomen is generally safe as long as the procedure can be completed in less than 6 hours – minimizing your time under anesthesia.
