Subtle Appearance
How can I know which procedure is right for me: liposuction only or complete abdominoplasty?

Patients who are overweight should lose their excess weight before resorting to the abdominoplasty.

Generally, an abdomen with a firm skin that contains a mass of superfluous fat is an indication that the necessary procedure is liposuction only.

Liposuction, or lipoaspiration, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that permits us to remove fatty cells from certain body areas that have resisted many diets and training programs.

Dr. Fanous removes the fat with a tiny tube that he inserts through small incisions of a few millimeters each. This procedure is performed on the premises of our certified clinic in Montreal.

However, many women have a loose skin problem in the abdomen area that liposuction alone can't correct. For this type of correction, a tummy tuck is indicated.

How much improvement will I get?

The improvement in your abdominal region will be noticeable. However, the upper part of abdomen will get less improvement than the lower part because it is located further away from the pubic incision.

The appearance of your stomach will gradually evolve. You may consider that the results of your abdominoplasty are final few months after your tummy tuck surgery.

What is the duration of an abdominoplasty?

The duration of the cosmetic surgery of abdominoplasty practiced by Dr. Fanous is generally about three to four hours.

This surgery takes place in our certified and modern surgical center in Montreal.

Is it painful?

Dr. Fanous ensures that your abdominoplasty takes place almost without pain.

In general, you will have little pain and discomfort during the postoperative period.

Will I have to be put to sleep under general anesthesia?

Dr. Fanous uses local anesthesia with sedation during your tummy tuck surgery 'abdominiplasty'.

This type of anesthesia is highly appreciated by the vast majority of our patients who undergo an abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Fanous at our surgical clinic in Montreal.

Is it possible to get a liposuction treatment on other areas during my abdominoplasty?

Many patients like to eliminate the unwanted fat on their hips or their thighs during the same intervention.

Is the tummy tuck scar apparent?

The abdominoplasty scar will remain red for about 2 years.

As it is located at the edge of the pubic hair, it is more subtle than a scar left higher into the belly.

What is the duration of the recovery period?

Ideally, you will adopt a semi-sitting position during the first days following your tummy tuck surgery in order not to impose additional stress on the operated area.

Generally, you will need to wear a support garment for several weeks after your abdominoplasty.

When can I return to work?

Generally, you will be able to resume your work two to three weeks after your abdominoplasty if you have an office-type job.

How long do I have to wait to resume my physical exercise?

In general, you may resume your exercise and sports one to two months after your tummy tuck surgery 'abdominiplasty'.

Are there possible complications associated with the abdominoplasty?

Although they are possible, complications are infrequent: marked scarring (keloids), bleeding, loss of sensation, infection, pain, skin necrosis, changes in sensitivity, etc.
