Tummy Tuck Before & After New Age in Ottawa

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck surgery targets three tissues: abdominal skin, fat, and muscle. Stubborn fat, excess skin, and stretch marks are often the main reasons patients seek tummy tuck surgery.

Weight loss and post-pregnancy changes can leave the skin stretched out and sagging. Gravity and age can also contribute to overall laxity in the abdominal area.

A full tummy tuck eliminates excess skin and fat on the front of the abdomen. This procedure is popular for people who have lost a significant amount of weight. A tummy tuck results in a flatter, slimmer, more athletic midsection.

Sometimes, there is excessive subcutaneous fat present during tummy tuck surgery. In these cases, liposuction creates more sculpted and defined results.

With a past pregnancy, there's often separation of the abdominal muscles. This separation is normal post-pregnancy but can result in abdominal bulging and back pain. If muscle separation occurs, Dr. MacArthur can suture the muscles back together to achieve a slimmer, more sculpted look.

Your Custom Tummy Tuck Surgery With Dr. Ian MacArthur

Tummy Tuck surgery takes 2 to 4 hours under general anesthesia. You will be comfortable and sleep during surgery.

When you wake up, a bandage and binder will be on your abdomen. The binder is an elastic compression device that helps decrease swelling and provides support post-surgery.

Most patients take 2 weeks off work, which can vary depending on their job. It's essential to wear a binder for about 4 weeks; after this point, there are no further physical restrictions unless Dr. MacArthur tells you otherwise.

Types of Tummy Tucks:

New Age Medical Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery offers four types of tummy tuck surgery.

A tummy tuck can be performed with liposuction, breast implants, and a breast lift. These additional procedures can improve the results of your tummy tuck with more definition and a beautiful new contour. A "Mommy Makeover" refers to combining multiple procedures into one operation. Dr. Ian MacArthur often performs multiple procedures in one operation.

Can I get a tummy tuck if I'm overweight?

If you lose or gain weight after your initial consultation, you will need a new quote because your surgical plan will change. Being overweight at the time of surgery increases the risk of complications.
