Many people exploring the idea of having a tummy tuck in Toronto often end up getting liposuction as well. The two procedures are commonly performed in conjunction to get the best of both procedures at once without having to go through two separate recovery periods.
To understand why the two procedures go so well together, it is useful to first understand how each procedure works on its own.
The tummy tuck procedure targets excess skin and fat in the middle and lower abdominal area. During the procedure, abdominal muscles are also tightened to reduce bulging in the tummy area and create a flatter contour.
Among those getting tummy tucks in Toronto, the most common candidates are women who have been through pregnancy and those who have experienced extensive weight loss leaving sagging excess skin in the abdominal area.
Although the two procedures accomplish different goals, they are very complimentary when used together. After the procedure is performed to tighten the muscle and trim excess skin and fat, liposuction can give the results an extra boost by fine-tuning the body contour.
When these two procedures are performed together, patients can enjoy the benefits of both without doubling the pain and recovery time of two separate procedures. In fact, recovery after the surgery on its own is typically not any different from that when it is combined with liposuction.
Another great benefit is that when the two procedures are combined, patients can save on surgical fees as they do not have to pay facility and anesthesia related costs twice over.
Although any type of surgery is tricky, combining two procedures in particular calls for a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon to pull off well.
Making sure you choose a board certified plastic surgeon with specific experience performing the two procedures together is a good way to ensure that you are in safe and capable hands.
