Weight fluctuations, pregnancy and genetics are the major obstacles in our never-ending quest for fabulous abs. The abdomen is one area of the body that undergoes the most significant changes in our lives. It is also one of the areas most resistant to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, is extremely popular for Vancouver women and men who have tried everything but just can't achieve a flat, toned stomach.

To take the next step, request a consultation with Dr. Peter Lennox. Or, call our office at (604) 876-6552 to schedule your appointment.

Improvements From a Tummy Tuck

You may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you are healthy, at a stable weight, and want to attain one or more of the following improvements:

  • Tightening loose, stretched skin after pregnancy or significant weight loss
  • Flattening protruding abdominal muscles that separated during pregnancy
  • Renewing the shape of the belly button

Understanding Abdominoplasty

A tummy tuck helps men and women achieve a firm, flat midsection. Dr. Lennox customizes tummy tucks for each patient based on their body shape, skin elasticity and personal goals. Typically, he recommends a traditional approach, which involves an incision across the lower abdomen from hip to hip to remove excess fat, tissue and skin and repair weakened abdominal muscles. Depending on the extent of skin that needs to be removed, Dr. Lennox usually makes an incision around the belly button to reposition it. He also performs other variations of the tummy tuck depending on the amount of correction required (see illustration).

As with any incision, there's no way to avoid having a scar, but Dr. Lennox takes great care to place the incision in a discreet location that can be concealed beneath clothing. He spends a great deal of time discussing this with each patient to tailor the scar position to their desires. Moms in Vancouver considering a tummy tuck are particularly pleased to learn that the procedure can also eliminate stretch marks on the lower part of the abdomen. Mothers can also incorporate a tummy tuck into a comprehensive mommy makeover, which addresses the effects of pregnancy all over the body in a single operation.

Recovery & Results

After your tummy tuck, you'll need to take it easy for the first few weeks, and avoid straining the abdominal wall for up to 6 weeks. You'll wear a compression garment under your clothes for a while to minimize swelling and provide support to your abdomen while it heals. It's especially important to avoid bending, straining or lifting anything heavy so you don't put stress of any internal stitches. Most of Dr. Lennox's patients describe moderate discomfort the first few days after surgery, but it is managed well with prescription pain medicine. After several weeks, you can gradually resume your normal activities, and Dr. Lennox will advise you of this.

Our tummy tuck patients find the procedure to be transformative. After years of dieting and exercise, most patients are thrilled to finally have the flat, tight abs they've always desired. While tummy tuck results are long lasting, it's important to note that the best candidates for the procedure are those who maintain their desired weight and do not plan to have more children.

Complementary Procedures

Oftentimes, moms who opt to have a tummy tuck combine it with complementary procedures such as breast augmentation or breast reduction to help them reclaim their pre-pregnancy figures.
