In brief: What's you problem?

If we are talking about the abdomen, the tummy tuck is more effective for loose abdominal skin and muscles, as is seen after childbirth or weight loss.
Liposuction is more effective for disproportionate collections of fat located under tight skin. Which is more effective depends on the type of problem you are trying to fix.

In brief: Liposuction for fat

Liposuction is really just to address excess fat- for removal of excess skin and tightening the abdominal wall that is commonly needed after childbirth, a tummy tuck is necessary.
In my practice, i perform liposuction with an abdominoplasty to enhance your contour.

In brief: Depends!

It all depends on whether you have excessive fat but good skin and abdominal muscle quality or vice versa.
Liposuction is indicated in the former and tummy tuck in the latter. Sometimes a combination of both procedures are done. www.cosmeticsurgery4you.com
