Toronto Tummy Tuck Cost: Are The Results Worth The Investment?

Making the decision to undergo a tummy tuck is life changing and involves a considerable investment, financially as well as physically and emotionally. Many prospective clients contemplating going under the knife wonder if the results of their Toronto tummy tuck are worth the investment.

There is a wide range when it comes to the cost of a tummy tuck in Toronto. The surgery can typically run anywhere from $6000-12000 depending on the extent of work performed.

Making the decision whether you would like to proceed is a very personal choice. The ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is one who is in overall good physical health and around the ideal weight for their body type, but struggling with loose skin and fat in the abdominal area.  Since this type of loose skin is typically not responsive to diet and exercise, it can be a source of anger, frustration, depression and impacts a patient’s self-confidence.

If a tummy tuck is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, it will not be covered by OHIP. However, in cases where there is a demonstrable medical reason for excess skin removal, it is possible that OHIP will cover part of the cost. The criteria usually involves verifying that a client has lost significant weight (100 pounds or more). The term Panniculectomy refers to removal of the overhanging tissue only, but Edelstein Cosmetic offers the Full Abdominoplasty procedure, which includes the removal of a pannus component.

For those who would like to undergo the procedure but for whom cost is a barrier, there are also financing options available through third party medical financing companies.  Some patients choose to use a credit card or a personal line of credit as well, if they can secure a great interest rate.

Aside from the value financially, it is also important to factor in the physical and emotional value of making positive, physical changes that help you to look and feel better every day. The costs of being temporarily away from work as well as expenses that you may incur during recovery are usually considered to be well worth it in the long run.

Although the procedure can address all degrees of sagging skin, it is understandable that since the investment is considerable, those who have minor sagging may decide that it is not worth the investment.  It is important that your surgeon be sincere and honest with you during consultation to help you weigh the benefits versus expense, given your unique needs.

Another valuable factor that may help with decision-making is that despite the investment, for those who maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, the results are permanent. Although an individual must continue to eat well and exercise regularly, if this is done, the investment of a Toronto tummy tuck will last a lifetime.

Furthermore, the results also often bring with them physical and emotional benefits. Improved self-esteem, a renewed sense of confidence as well as improved mobility and energy are some positive effects that patients often cite.

When determining if the results are worth the cost, take your time and don’t rush the decision. It is important that you make sure you decide on what you really want for yourself, and not as a result of external or societal pressures.
