Since each of us have completely unique body types and contours, it can be confusing to figure out which tummy tuck approach is right for you.
At Edelstein Cosmetic, we pride ourselves on an individualized approach to the Toronto tummy tuck. Recognizing that there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to this type of procedure, we carefully create customized treatment plans to fit each patient’s unique body and goals.
Therefore, if you are considering a tummy tuck, it is helpful to educate yourself about the different techniques to get an idea of the approach you would like to further explore with your surgeon.
A mini tummy tuck is a popular choice among those who tend to store fat in the lower abdomen. This may be a result of genetics, or occur following pregnancy and childbirth. Since the concerns that are addressed by this type of surgery are restricted to the lower abdomen, it only works well for those struggling with abdominal contouring concerns in the lower belly region.
A standard Toronto tummy tuck is one of the most common types of cosmetic procedures and it can address a wide variety of concerns. By using a wide incision from hip to hip as well as around the belly button, the surgeon is able to remove excess skin and fat from areas all the way from the breast to the pelvis. During the procedure, the abdominal wall muscles can also be tightened.
A standard tummy tuck is typically best for those who are in close range to their ideal body weight but are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat or excess skin despite a healthy diet and exercise.
The extended tummy tuck is very similar to a full tummy tuck; however, the incision extends further around the sides than the hip-to-hip technique. Candidates for an extended tummy tuck are typically those whose excess skin extends beyond the hip-to-hip region.
