Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
Tummy tuck surgery, medically referred to as abdominoplasty, is a way to eliminate excess, loose skin in the abdomen and tighten the remainder for a firmer, flatter appearance. Despite weight control and exercise, some individuals do not achieve the abdominal contour that they desire. Sometimes the issue is a lower roll of skin and fatty tissue; sometimes it is loose skin and stretch marks; often it involves muscles and their support tissues weakened and damaged by surgery, pregnancy, or large weight changes. Regardless of the reasoning, contouring, flattening and tightening of the abdominal region is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures chosen by women, and an increasing number of men.
With tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Timothy Best can help you attain your goals and give your abdomen a more fit appearance.
Tummy Tuck Treatment
Having your “tummy tucked” means removing excess fatty tissue and skin, and where required, tightening the abdominal muscle support tissues. This procedure ranges from a mini-tuck to deal with issues limited to the region between the pubis and the belly button, to full tucks with liposuction to deal with the entire front of the abdomen. For other patients, the problem extends around the hips and right around to their back – this too can be corrected!
In your initial consultation with Dr. Best, once you explain your own situation and what you want corrected, he will talk with you about treatment options and clearly explain the advantages of each option that may be beneficial to you. Once you have decided to have the procedure, Dr. Best will create a customized treatment plan. Dr. Best will guide you every step of the way, and answer all of your questions.
Tummy tuck surgery is usually performed as a day-procedure, and most patients are able to return home the evening of the treatment. Dr. Best will discuss all aspects of the procedure, from pre-operative instructions to post-operative recovery, before you decide to have the surgery so that you will know what you can expect.
Tummy tuck surgery has helped patients all over the world attain firmer, tighter abdominal skin with beautiful results.
Extended Tummy Tuck / Belt Dermatolipectomy
Some patient’s issues extend beyond their tummy, and there is a roll that goes right around their trunk to their back. These patients often choose an extended tummy tuck, also known as a belt dermatolipectomy. Dr. Timothy Best is an expert in this procedure, having introduced it to Northern Ontario in the late 1990’s. He has continuously improved the procedure and continues to provide the surgery to patients who choose to rehabilitate their entire trunk region.
