Our skin is extremely elastic which allows it to stretch and come back to its place. When women undergo pregnancy, their stomach expands massively through the growth of the child. Sometimes, after birth, the stomach might not always come back to its former shape. The skin might seem pulled, wrinkled, and stretched. This could also be due to extreme weight loss. When this happens, there is also a chance of permanent separation of abdominal muscles. This can cause back pain and even decrease core strength. All of this can be targeted by Tummy tuck Toronto. It is a popular method that can help you to get a smooth midsection. Three different techniques are used for a tummy tuck. They are as follows.
A standard approach is followed in this type of tummy tuck. It is a perfect choice when there is excessive skin present above and below the belly button. During the process, the separate abdominal muscles are repaired. The naval is reconstructed, and all the skin present under it is removed. During the surgery, along horizontal incision is made on the lower abdomen which mostly runs from hip to hip. The skin which remains after the removal is pulled. It helps to reduce the appearance of marks. After the muscles have been repaired, you can undergo liposuction that can help to restore and sculpt the waist. The scars made during the surgery can be easily hidden by the underwear. There will be a small incision inside the belly button. If you choose to undergo this type of tummy tuck, it is recommended to take 2 weeks off.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini Tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty is a great choice when there is minimal sagging skin present under the navel. When there are no aesthetic concerns present above the line, you can opt for a mini tummy tuck. It can help to achieve a smooth and flatter abdomen. During the procedure, a short scar is made on the low belly. Minor muscle repair takes place and fat removal can also be carried out. All of this can only happen when there is a small ellipse of skin excised for a small adjustment. In a mini tummy tuck, the navel remains unchanged. The recovery time of the mini tummy tuck is lesser, and you would need to take a week off.
Hybrid or the floating tummy tuck works to bridge the gap between the two techniques. You may qualify for a hybrid approach when there is sagging skin above the navel and some issues below it. It can target muscles separation without any excess skin. A hybrid approach is great even for those with a lean figure, and there is protrusion caused by diastasis recti. If there is no substantial skin removal, the surgeon will have to create an abdominal incision for repairing midline muscles. The belly button is floated 2-3 cms lower than its original position to pull the region above the taut. All the excess skin is trimmed.
