Tummy Tuck - I'm in need of a butt lift and tummy tuck. I was wondering if a body lift will do both of these things, or are the procedures much different? Also, what is fat augmentation?

A tummy tuck removes excess skin from the front of the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles to remove any bulges. A body lift removes excess fat from the front AND back of the abdomen/torso. So a body lift would be more appropriate if you had a "belt" of excess skin around your lower abdominal/back region. Fat augmentation is when we take your existing fat, using liposuction, and reinject it into areas that you'd like more fullness, like the buttocks.
