Home/Body Contouring/Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)/Tummy Tuck Procedure

Tummy Tuck Procedure

The tummy tuck procedure at The Ottawa Clinic involves a strategic incision along the lower abdomen, just above the pubic line. This careful placement ensures that residual scarring is often discreetly concealed under clothing or swimwear, preserving both the aesthetic outcome and patient confidence. The skilled surgeon then proceeds to remove excess skin and fat, addressing concerns that may arise from factors such as weight loss or pregnancy. 


Simultaneously, the rectus abdominis muscles are tightened to enhance abdominal tone. To achieve comprehensive results, repositioning of the belly button (umbilicus) is also performed during the surgery. These surgical techniques collectively contribute to flattening the lower abdomen and narrowing the waistline, offering a transformative impact on the patient’s overall physique.


For those seeking a more comprehensive transformation, the option to combine procedures exists. Patients may opt for additional interventions like mommy makeover surgery or liposuction targeting specific areas like the upper abdomen or hips. The extent of body contouring required is a personalized consideration, discussed thoroughly during the consultation. 


Our team of experienced plastic surgeons guides patients in understanding their options, recommending tailored solutions aligned with individual aesthetic goals. This collaborative approach ensures that each patient receives a customized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and aspirations.
