Tummy tuck in Montreal Abdominoplasty for a Firmer, Flatter Stomach
Abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure designed to flatten and contour an abdomen that will not respond to diet or exercise efforts. The procedure involves removing excess fat and skin, repairing the abdominal muscles and tightening sagging skin. The procedure is modified to the patient’s specific needs.
One of the most commonly performed cosmetic enhancement procedures, tummy tuck has helped millions of people enjoy the toned physique they desire and deserve. With over two decades of plastic surgery experience, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Izadpanah is one of Montreal most trusted tummy tuck surgeons.
Tummy Tuck Candidates
Most candidates for tummy tuck have noticed changes in their abdomen due to pregnancy, fluctuation in weight, age, or simply the effects of gravity.
Generally, tummy tuck candidates are:
- Physically and psychologically healthy
- Free of uncontrolled medical issues that could raise the surgical risks
- At, or close to, their goal weight
- Not planning to become pregnant or gain weight in the future
- Aware of all possible surgical outcomes
- Committed to maintaining the results through a good diet and regular exercise
During a consultation, Dr. Ali Izadpanah evaluates each candidate on an individual basis. He takes a detailed medical history and asks questions about the candidate’s health history (including any previous abdominal surgeries). He inquiries about the candidate’s ideal cosmetic outcome, and any lifestyle factors that could affect the results.
Dr. Ali Izadpanah performs a physical examination of the candidate’s abdomen, noting the amount of fat present, the elasticity of the skin and the condition of the abdominal muscles. This information helps him plan the course of treatment.
