Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

Dr. Andrade is an experienced, highly trained board certified Plastic Surgeon (MD, PhD, FRCSC) who is a leader in breast and body contouring surgery.   A trusted choice among referring doctors and health professionals, The York Plastic Surgery Centre offers a state of the art, professional and welcoming  experience for all patient who come to the facility.

The majority of patients seeking tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) are healthy and physically active but nonetheless have excess skin on the lower abdomen. This is a particularly common problem for females after childbirth or for those who have lost a significant amount of weight.

Tummy tuck surgery is best performed on people who have a healthy weight or are only modestly overweight. It is not recommended as a weight loss procedure in very overweight patients due to the increased risk of complications.

During your consultation, Dr. Andrade will ask about your specific abdominal concerns, including any past abdominal surgery. The physical examination is very important and will include examining your abdomen for overall skin quality and the amount of excess adipose tissue, location of pre-existing scars, hernias and loose abdominal muscles. Photos will be taken so the preoperative and postoperative appearance can be compared.

Other abdominal procedures include Mini Tummy Tuck and Mommy Makeover (in combination with breast surgery)
