Tummy tucks in Toronto (abdominoplasty) are increasingly the feature procedure in combination rejuvenation makeovers. While this transformative waist-reshaper is a standard, go-to choice after weight loss or pregnancy, it works beautifully when multitasking alongside other complimentary cosmetic surgeries.
Here we’ll take a look at the body-shaping and contouring procedures that can help you get more “wow” out of your tummy tuck in Toronto.
Toronto Tummy Tuck Combinations and Convenience
Many patients choose to combine surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures into one convenient package. This is particularly popular now that more people are working from home, vacationing less, and finally have time for relaxing and recovering in privacy.
It has been standard to plan liposuction with a tummy tuck for many years, because this fat-banishing process allows for the sculpting and detailed contouring of the abdomen and waist for maximum effect.
But did you know that there are other perhaps less obvious treatments that you and your surgeon may want to add to your midsection makeover?
Patients who are good candidates for abdominoplasty can often add additional body work to be completed in the same surgery such as:
- Liposuction of the sides and back (flanks)
- Breast lift (mastopexy)
- Breast reduction
- Breast augmentation (breast implants)
- J-Plasma tissue tightening
- Facial treatments such as CO2 laser skin resurfacing
Tummy Tuck in Toronto, Star of the Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeover combinations first grabbed attention in the cosmetic world roughly a decade ago when combining breast and abdomen rejuvenation for post-baby bodies began trending. This umbrella term can refer to various breast and tummy procedures, including a breast augmentation, lift, or even reduction.
Following pregnancy, many women patiently wait for their stretched, sagging skin to resume its former shape and tone. On the breasts and belly, stretch marks, separated abdominal muscles, and sagging, deflated breasts may persist, no matter how hard a woman works to lose the baby weight.
The truth is, lax skin or separated abdominal muscles can become a long-term frustration that is not reversible through working out or non-invasive treatments.
A Toronto tummy tuck can remove your excess skin in the midsection and tighten separated muscles. When you choose to add breast implants or a breast lift, the result is a dramatic, more complete makeover for your figure in one convenient procedure.
Tummy Tuck in Toronto with Comprehensive Liposuction
A standard full tummy tuck aims to pull together separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) through tightly suturing the fascia that covers muscles. The result shows the same effect as a corset, slimming the waistline and helping flatten a belly bulge.
At the same time, your surgeon will reconstruct the belly button and remove the stretched, “extra” skin left behind after childbirth or weight loss.
As powerful as the tummy tuck is to revitalize one’s midsection, stubborn pockets of fat often remain at the sides, back, upper abdomen, and thighs.
It’s fairly common to perform some liposuction of the frontal abdomen during a tummy tuck, but have you considered where else this vacuum removal of fat can benefit you?
Our patients choose to add lumbar (back) fat removal, additional liposuction at the sides, the inner and outer thighs, and even the arms.
It is important to note that adding surgical fat removal to your tummy tuck in Toronto will increase the surgery time and costs. Your recovery time might include a few more days off work as well. However, it can be a wonderful feeling to combat multiple problem areas and watch your whole body slim down as you heal after a tummy tuck.
Each person and their needs are unique, so your plastic surgeon will discuss your goals, your health, and the best personalized recommendations for you to get the body shaping that you want.
