Can A Toronto Tummy Tuck Give You An Hourglass Figure?

After pregnancy or weight loss many women suffer from stubborn excess skin and fat around the abdomen, and the resulting loss of waistline definition. For those who are considering a Toronto tummy tuck, it is natural to wonder if it is indeed the solution to restore the hourglass figure you are looking for.

The primary goal of a tummy tuck is to remove sagging skin and tighten the abdominal muscles- revealing a firmer and flatter abdomen with a defined waist.

When it comes to abdominoplasty surgery, known as a tummy tuck, the skill and experience of the operating plastic surgeon is key to determining results.

At Edelstein Cosmetic, our highly skilled surgeons specialize in providing outstanding results to patients undergoing a Toronto tummy tuck. By enhancing patient’s natural proportions, we are not only able to restore an hourglass figure, but in some cases this also helps the breasts and buttocks look relatively fuller.

With several years of experience, our team of experts utilizes a variety of techniques to accentuate patient’s natural curves to create the silhouette they are looking for.

In many cases, the best results are achieved by performing a Toronto tummy tuck in conjunction with supplementary liposuction. This allows us to further sculpt the surrounding areas while removing the excess skin and fat. In addition, by adding liposuction to address fat deposits on the hips, back or sides, patients can also enjoy the enhanced contour of both their torso and waist.

There are specialized suturing techniques that can be used to help give you an hourglass figure. In a standard tummy tuck, separated abdominal muscles are tightened with strong, internal sutures that run vertically up the center of the abdomen. This, in effect, acts as a corset to pull the tummy area tight together and support internal contents. Many patients find that this Diastasis repair results in a slimmer waist and more hourglass shape.

It is important for patients to have realistic expectations and understand the limitations of the surgery. Even the most highly skilled surgeons cannot alter a patient’s natural anatomy. Therefore, for people who naturally have a very straight silhouette, the addition of these techniques during a tummy tuck will not result in a dramatic hourglass transformation.

Generally patients who have a sufficient amount of space between the ribcage and pelvis, and are naturally curvy, are the most likely to achieve an hourglass figure following the procedure. An hourglass shape is also more likely to be achieved by those who are in the range of their ideal body weight prior to the surgery, without notable intra-abdominal fat.

The best way to learn what a tummy tuck can do for you is to sit down with a board certified plastic surgeon for a detailed consultation. At Edelstein Cosmetic, our expert plastic surgeons take pride in their patient centered approach to aesthetics.

During a consultation we fully assess each patient’s individual areas of concern, while carefully listening to their goals for the most appropriate and safest treatment recommendations.

For those who desire an hourglass figure but are limited by their natural anatomy, a breast augmentation can also be considered to give your silhouette an extra element of proportion.
