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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
