All You Need To Know About Tummy Tuck Procedures At Our Visage Toronto Clinic
With so many benefits from this procedure you can expect excess fat to be ultimately removed, the abdominal skin is tightened, and divided abdominal muscles to be repaired during a Tummy Tuck procedure. This will also promote and restore a flatter, firmer, and more youthful abdominal profile.
The traditional tummy tuck procedure, as well as the extended tummy tuck procedure, have all been performed by Dr. Dupéré in order to achieve these amazing transformations. Dr. Dupéré has earned a stellar reputation for this procedure over the last decades of his practice.
We see men and women who have lost weight and are left with loose abdominal skin, moms who have stretched abdominal muscles after delivery, and others who are unable to lose that stubborn belly pouch despite their best efforts in the gym. If you’re wanting to learn more about our tummy tuck procedure at Visage Clinic, keep reading and find out how this could be the best procedure for you.
What is a Tummy Tuck Procedure and How Does It Work Long-Term?
A tummy tuck is a surgical treatment that involves the removal of extra skin and fat from the front abdomen in order to improve the look of the stomach. A firmer profile may be achieved by restoring muscles that have been weakened or divided through the use of this technique.
Most of the time, the excess skin over the abdomen will not tighten on its own, no matter how often you exercise or how many sit-ups you do. It is common for people who have lost a large amount of weight or who have gone through pregnancy to have stretched skin which means they would highly benefit from this type of procedure to successfully remove it.
The stomach tuck will remove any extra skin and stretch marks from the abdominal region, leaving patients with a smooth, tight exterior that is proportionate to their decreased body mass after surgery.
The Advantages of a Tummy Tuck
As a result of an Abdominoplasty, you may expect to see a significant improvement in the look of your belly. This body sculpting procedure targets the three major factors that lead to an unattractive abdominal appearance: loose skin, extra fat, and slack abdominal muscles. If you are bothered by any or all of the following issues, a tummy tuck may be the treatment that will help you reach your objectives:
Loose abdominal skin and stretch marks are two common problems.
There is no method to get rid of excess skin by exercising since the skin is inert and does not respond physiologically to physical activity. With an Abdominoplasty, abdominal skin and associated stretch marks are removed from the abdominal area directly, resulting in a tighter abdomen with little or no stretch marks.
Extra abdominal Fat is a problem.
It is important to note that when the skin is removed during tummy tuck surgery, the fat that was connected to the skin is also removed. Supplemental Liposuction may also be done in conjunction with Abdominoplasty to further remove any residual fat on the remainder of the abdomen after the procedure.
Abdominal muscles that are too lax.
It is possible for the abdominal muscles to be stretched and weakened by pregnancy and/or weight increase in the same way skin may be stretched and thinned. It is termed as diastasis recti in medical terminology to refer to the separation of abdominal muscles. When the diastasis is big, the core connective tissue is physically stretched out, and although exercise can help to develop the muscles, no amount of exercise will be able to restore the muscles to their original position. If the diastasis is small, exercise may help to strengthen the muscles.
The belly bulge seen by women with diastasis will remain even if the patient is very thin, according to the condition. It is common for the patient to have trouble putting pressure on their stomach, and to find it difficult to do sit ups. When a woman is lying down, she may occasionally feel the diastasis in her stomach (and lifting the head slightly to contract the rectus muscles). It manifests itself as a gap along the midline, where the muscles have been separated by the strain. Others may erroneously believe that the patient is still pregnant or in the early stages of pregnancy, which is a common complaint among patients with diastasis recti.
Abdominoplasty is a procedure in which the muscles are stitched together to restore them to their natural configuration (muscle plication). It is common for the muscles to be made much tighter than they were to begin with. The result is the creation of an internal ‘girdle,’ which results in patients having a flat and perhaps even concave abdomen, as well as a smaller waistline after the procedure.
The Additional Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
If your stomach shape has been flattened and your muscle tone has improved, you will be able to feel more confident in specific clothes and swimwear.
Stretch Marks Can Be Reduced
If you tighten your skin, you will notice that stretch marks are less apparent. After completing an evaluation of the patient’s stretch marks, your surgeon will explain what they may anticipate from the procedure and what kind of results you can expect.
Pregnancy Belly Can Be Reversed
The treatment may be used to remove loose, hanging skin that might be bothersome after a woman has given birth.
Stomach that is toned
The treatment may help you attain a toned stomach by removing fat, tightening skin, and bringing the abdominal muscles back together.
Is A Tummy Tuck Procedure Recommended After a Significant Amount of Weight Loss?
Patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight are also excellent candidates for Abdominoplasty. The presence of excess skin may be unpleasant, and it can also make it difficult to exercise and dress properly, as well as create hygienic issues. Patients who have had bariatric surgery may find the removal of extra skin and tightening of abdominal muscles to be particularly helpful. Your surgeon may suggest a complete Lower Body Lift for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight but still have excess skin in other areas of the body in addition to the abdomen in order to get the best possible body contouring outcomes.
Our Mini Tummy Tuck Procedure At Visage Clinic
A Mini Tummy Tuck is a variant of the conventional Abdominoplasty surgery that treats the abdominal skin, muscle, and fat in a less comprehensive manner than the typical procedure. This procedure is designed for patients who are mainly concerned with abdominal fat accumulation, as well as looseness and bulging of the lower abdominal muscles. Patients who are excellent candidates for a Mini Tummy Tuck do not have a significant amount of excess skin on their stomachs.
During a Mini Tummy Tuck, Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from the whole abdomen during the procedure. The treatment also tightens musculature that has been strained, although it mostly targets the abdominal muscles that are situated below the naval. Only a little quantity of loose skin is removed during the procedure. This has the benefit of making the incision for a Mini Tummy Tuck much shorter than the incision for a conventional Abdominoplasty. Given that a Mini Tummy Tuck does not concentrate on removing significant quantities of extra skin, candidates for the operation should have just a modest degree of skin laxity and excellent skin elasticity to be considered. The advantages of a Mini Tummy Tuck over a traditional Tummy Tuck are many, and usually include a quicker recovery time, less postoperative edema, and a lesser scar compared to the traditional procedure.
Can The Stomach Be Reshaped With a Tummy Tuck Procedure?
An Abdominoplasty, is not considered weight-loss surgery and should not be regarded as a replacement for a healthy lifestyle based on a nutritious diet and regular physical activity, among other things. In the same way, patients who have had Abdominoplasty must continue their healthy lifestyle in order to preserve their outcomes. When your surgeon meets with patients in the Toronto area for a Tummy Tuck consultation, it’s critical that he sets realistic patient expectations for the result of the surgery before proceeding.
Dr. Dupéré will examine your current situation among other considerations, when determining whether or not a patient is a good candidate for an Abdominoplasty procedure.
When Is the Best Time to Get a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty is most commonly performed by Dr. Dupéré on women who have finished childbearing and want to restore the look of their abdomen area to that of pre-pregnancy proportions. A tummy tuck, on the other hand, may be performed for a variety of causes in both male and female patients of different ages and genders.
Although there is no optimal age for a tummy tuck surgery, patients should be in excellent general health and be in reasonably decent physical condition.
The Optimal Weight for Tummy Tuck Surgery Candidates
Patients who are excellent candidates for a tummy tuck must have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 35, and preferably less than 30 in order to be considered.
Higher BMI patients often have a substantial amount of fat under the abdominal muscle layer (known as visceral adipose), which cannot be removed by abdominoplasty surgery (resulting in persistent abdominal protrusion). Patients with a greater BMI not only have poor outcomes, but they also have a higher risk of complications after Abdominoplasty.
What Is the Average Cost of a Tummy Tuck?
Depending on the degree of your Tummy Tuck, abdominoplasty at our Visage Toronto clinic typically starts at a cost of $11,000- $14,000 + HST (including applicable taxes). A Mini Tummy Tuck surgery is typically priced starting at $8,000 and $9,000 plus HST for individuals who choose this option. In the overwhelming majority of instances, the overall expenses for patients are standardized regardless of the magnitude or severity of the patient’s condition. Other variables are sometimes included when calculating the total cost of a Tummy Tuck procedure, particularly when a non-standard technique is needed.
After a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Dupéré, during which he will evaluate your concerns and individual requirements, you will be given an exact and customized pricing estimate for your procedure. Plastic surgery financing options are available, a flexible and great alternative. Since every patient is different, prices will vary as well.
