Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tucks)
An abdominoplasty, or "tummy tuck", removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, while it tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall.
During the same procedure, the liposuction is usually performed to gently contour your flank ("love handle") areas. The result is a slimmer and more naturally contoured appearance for your abdomen. The abdominoplasty is performed as a day surgery procedure.
We have adopted a new drain-free abdominoplasty technique. The procedure, first adopted by a renowned Canadian plastic surgeon, uses Quill sutures to close all abdominal layers and spaces. This reduces the risk of postoperative fluid collection and eliminates the need for drains. This will allow our patients more mobility and reduce potential drain complications.
In regards to recovery, an abdominal support garment is used after your operation. You should avoid strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting for 4 weeks after the surgery.
