So You Want A Toronto Tummy Tuck, But Is It A Safe Choice?

If you have begun to research tummy tucks in Toronto and what they entail, you are probably well aware they are complex and intricate surgeries involving potentially large incisions across the abdomen. With any type of surgery, particularly a tummy tuck, it is natural to wonder if it is a safe choice before you decide to proceed.

Fortunately, tummy tucks are generally considered low risk cosmetic surgeries.

At Edelstein Cosmetic, our expert surgeons take great measures to ensure that your procedure is as safe and comfortable as possible while yielding the results you are looking for. Our team of surgeons has developed ways to perform the procedure in the least invasive way possible, resulting in a smaller incision as well as trying to minimize scarring. As a result, our patients are able to enjoy a shorter and more comfortable recovery period as well.

The safety of a tummy tuck also depends on the extent on your overall health prior to the surgery. A healthy body is better able to bounce back from the procedure than an unhealthy one, as well as show optimal results. The ideal candidate for a Toronto tummy tuck is typically one who is in good overall shape, close to the ideal weight for their body type but is struggling with stubborn areas of loose skin and fat on their abdomen.

To ensure your tummy tuck is as safe as possible it is also important to be open and honest with your surgeon during your consultation. If you are a smoker, it is imperative that you disclose this information as smoking can increase your risk of having an adverse reaction to your surgery as well as hamper the recovery process.

At Edelstein Cosmetic, our surgeons primary concern is to keep you as comfortable and safe as possible during and after your Toronto tummy tuck. All of our patients are provided with detailed aftercare instructions, which are important to follow closely.

Another way to make sure your tummy tuck is as safe as possible is to pick a surgeon wisely. By doing research and choosing a well reputed, board certified surgeon who specializes in the procedure, you can minimize the risk of developing any complications as well as ensure that you get the results you are looking for.

Although a tummy tuck is considered to be a low-risk surgery compared to other, non-cosmetic procedures, there are certain factors to be aware of which can elevate risk of complications.

For instance, patients who are overweight or obese, over the age of 60, or smokers, may have a higher rate of complication. These include issues such as hematomas, infection and scarring among other factors that your surgeon will discuss with you in depth during a consultation.

If you are considering a tummy tuck and want to know more about the safety of the procedure, we encourage you to contact our clinic and schedule a consultation with one of our expert plastic surgeons.  With their wealth of experience they are able to provide personalized and in-depth insight about your unique factors and safety.
