What is a Tummy Tuck in Toronto?

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck in Toronto is a procedure in which Dr. Plant removes excessive skin in the abdomen. In most cases, it helps in restoring any separated or weak muscles while also shaping an abdomen that is firm and smooth.

A tummy tuck surgery will give you an abdomen that is contoured to better suit your body weight while helping to be more proportionate to your frame, giving you a more firm and flat abdomen.

What should I expect from my Tummy Tuck procedure?

While a tummy tuck will help you with getting a sleek and slim body contour, it is important to keep realistic expectations from your Toronto tummy tuck surgery. Initially, you may not be able to appreciate the results of the procedure due to the swelling and the fact you will not be able to stand upright right after surgery. However, once you are internally healed within 7 to 14 days, you will be glad to stand tall in a slimmer and sleek you! Dr. Plant will discuss with you your expectations and the anticipated results of your tummy tuck.

What is the recovery period from a Tummy Tuck procedure?

After your procedure is complete, Dr. Plant may apply dressings or bandages to your incisions. You may be wrapped in a compression garment or elastic bandage which aids in reducing the swelling and also supports the abdomen during the healing process. Unlike most other surgeons performing tummy tucks, Dr. Plant does not use drains in the vast majority of his patients after surgery. This will decrease the pain and discomfort after surgery, give you less to manage in your postoperative period and avoid additional scarring. The time period required for healing completely depends on the procedure being performed and Dr. Plant will discuss your recovery period with you during your consultation.

What are the advantages of a drainless Tummy tuck in Toronto and Orillia?

There are several advantages of a drainless Tummy Tuck performed by Dr. Plant:

  1. No pesky drains and collection bulbs to manage for a week or longer after surgery
  2. No painful drain-holding sutures in your pubic area for as long as your drains are in
  3. No additional wound care of the drain sites after they are removed
  4. No additional scars from the drain site
  5. The same special suture technique that allows him to avoid using drains also gives him the ability to remove more of the loose abdominal wall skin, giving you a tighter and flatter stomach.

As you can see, there are many advantages to a drainless technique and that is why Dr. Plant will do everything he can to avoid the use of drains in his Tummy Tuck.
