One of the things that most women don’t like about their bodies is what happens to the abdomen after having babies. This patient was very unhappy with the excess skin and protruding stomach that resulted from having two children. She wanted to have a flat stomach, smooth contours and a curvy silhouette.
After researching the internet and a referral from her sister, she booked a consultation to see Top Toronto Plastic Surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré at Visage Clinic for a possible Mommy Makeover or a Tummy Tuck.
During her consultation, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marc DuPéré explained that all women’s muscles and skin are stretched during pregnancy and in most women does not rebound and return to its pre-pregnancy state. The muscles instead of being straight and vertical become bowed allowing the stomach to protrude. The skin is stretched beyond its tensile strength, and like a balloon that has been blown up, it will never shrink back to its pre-baby state and folds over like an apron. No amount of exercise or diet will help.
To attain the flat stomach and smooth curves, Dr. DuPéré explained that a tummy tuck is the only option that will achieve her goals. During the tummy tuck the muscles are tightened, liposuction is preformed to sculpt the curves, the excess skin is removed and the belly button is repositioned. Dr. Marc DuPéré discussed the required recovery for the tummy tuck and all risks involved in surgical procedure.
The patient decided to proceed with a tummy tuck with Dr. Marc DuPéré, Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon.
Six weeks after a normal procedure and recovery, show a nice flat abdomen and a curvy waist. The scar will slowly fade to a fine light line blending in the with the patient’s own skin tone. The patient was extremely happy with her new shape.
