Toronto Tummy Tuck: What Is It, And Do You Need One?

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to remove loose skin and stubborn excess fat from the abdominal and waist area. The procedure aims to make the stomach appear smoother and flatter with a more defined waist and muscle tone. It is is often combined with liposuction to assist with sculpting new, improved contours.

A Toronto tummy tuck also often involves vertical muscle suturing to tighten any muscle separation, also known as diastasis rectus.There are a few different types of tummy tuck; each designed to target specific issues. During a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon, they will assess your case and recommend which type of procedure is best for you.

At Edelstein Cosmetic, our highly skilled group of surgeons has designed abdominoplasty in such a way that it improves a patient’s body contour with the least amount of scarring possible.  By performing the least invasive procedure, patients are able to achieve optimal results quickly with a shorter recovery period.If you are wondering if you need a tummy tuck, it is helpful to understand who a suitable candidate is.

In order to enjoy optimal results without a high risk of complications, it is important that patients be in good overall health and close to their ideal weight prior to the procedure. Contrary to popular belief, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss tool and can be ineffective and sometimes even detrimental to those who are overweight.If you are struggling with loose or droopy skin around your abdomen that persists despite following a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, a tummy tuck may be the solution for you. Many women seeking a tummy tuck in Toronto are unhappy with their post-pregnancy body, particularly the abdomen, or have recently lost weight but still have loose skin on their stomach.

A tummy tuck can help to restore your pre pregnancy figure.  It can also help to remove stubborn localized excess fat as well via liposuction.It is also helpful to note that if you are a woman who is planning to have children in the future, a tummy tuck will not interfere with your pregnancy or the development of your baby. However, following the changes that will take place during pregnancy, your abdomen may not return to the state it was in following your Toronto tummy tuck.When contemplating if you need a tummy tuck, you should understand that it is a complex and intricate surgical procedure which your body needs at least two weeks of full rest to recover from. Furthermore, making sure that you feel mentally and emotionally ready is important since recovery from any procedure can be stressful.If you are interested in finding out more about a Toronto tummy tuck we encourage you to book a consultation at our clinic.
