Tummy Tuck Surgery
A tummy tuck may also be referred to as abdominoplasty. When Dr. Bell performs a tummy tuck at his accredited surgical facility in Toronto, his objective is to remove excess fat and skin, and restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles. The end result of this procedure is that the abdominal profile is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes, or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
- Significant fluctuations in weight
Your Tummy Tuck Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Bell at his accredited surgical facility in Toronto, he will want to know several important things, so that he can advise you on the best approach for your tummy tuck procedure:
- Previous surgeries
- Current medications
- Your expectations and desired outcome
- Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
Dr. Bell will also evaluate your general health and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.
Dr. Bell Will Also Request That You :
- Take specific lab tests to ensure your fitness for surgery
- Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
- Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs such as Aspirin and some herbal supplements
Previous abdominal surgery may limit the potential results of a tummy tuck performed by Dr. Bell at his Toronto clinic. In women who have undergone a caesarean section, the existing scars may often be incorporated into the new scar.
