Find Out Why Toronto Tummy Tucks Are More Popular Than Ever

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a body contouring procedure, which works to tighten and tone the midsection. Since this area tends to be a trouble spot for a number of men and women, Toronto tummy tucks are now more popular than ever, particularly due to the procedure’s incredibly high satisfaction rate.

In fact, reviews suggest that 96% of patients are thrilled with the results of this transformative procedure and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) has reported a 70% increase in the number of tummy tuck procedures being performed since 2000.

Why Are Tummy Tucks So Popular?

Unfortunately, men and women of a variety of ages often carry excess weight around the abdomen. In many cases, the extra skin and fat surrounding the abdomen is stubborn and unresponsive to diet and exercise alone. This can be extremely frustrating and may make transforming the abdomen seem out of reach for many people. However, a tummy tuck offers an exciting solution for people who’ve noticed undesirable changes as they age or who struggle to achieve a toned tummy following pregnancy and significant weight loss.

While it’s important to understand that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery, this procedure can help healthy, active individuals eliminate excess skin and fat from the abdomen while also tightening and/or repairing abdominal muscles. Thus, a tummy tuck in Toronto is suited to people who’ve achieved their target weight through diet and exercise but need help eradicating loose, sagging skin, stretch marks, lax muscles or persistent fat deposits.

How Does A Tummy Tuck Work?

A Toronto tummy tuck is considered an abdominal contouring procedure because it aims to eliminate loose or stretched skin and stretch marks on the abdomen. It can also reduce the love handles and appearance of a “muffin top.” The goal of this procedure is to create a more defined waist, contributing to a tighter, more toned and youthful appearance.

To achieve this objective, an incision is made, typically from hip to hip below the bikini line, and the skin is lifted to enable the plastic surgeon to tighten and strengthen the abdominal muscles. This process acts as an internal girdle, as it supports the patient’s core. Next, any excess pockets of fat or loose skin are removed using liposuction. The skin is then pulled taut and the incision, which is placed low on the abdomen to be as inconspicuous as possible, is closed with internal, dissolvable sutures.

As a result of the dramatic transformation it yields, a tummy tuck is now one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in Toronto amongst patients who hope to improve their silhouette by achieving a firmer, flatter abdomen.
