6 Ways to Reduce Tummy Tuck Scarring

Preparing for your tummy tuck surgery here in Montreal may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. If you are in good health and a non-smoker, the procedure and recovery should be straightforward and completely manageable. It will take a few weeks to feel comfortable again and even longer for your scars to subside. They will be red-coloured and thick for a couple of months and may take a full year to fade. Your scars will be present, but they should reduce down to a discreet size with time. Here are a few things you can do to speed up the process: 1. Use Vitamin E Oil and Cocoa Butter Vitamin E oil and cocoa butter are both amazing products. They provide intense moisturization, which is helpful in reducing the appearance of scars.

How Soon After Pregnancy Can I Get A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure in Montreal that’s used to make the abdomen flatter, more toned and give you a narrower waist. It does so by removing excess skin or fat in the lower abdomen due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging. The procedure can restore your previous figure and will ultimately increase your self-esteem.

Will A Tummy Tuck Affect Menstruation?

Men and women (in particular) tend to have a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty with me in Montreal to get rid of extra belly fat after traditional methods like dieting and exercise have failed. Like other surgical procedures, there is a fairly lengthy recovery process, and the patient will experience some level of discomfort. However, most surgeons agree that an abdominoplasty doesn’t directly have an impact on a woman’s menstrual cycle. However, the stress of a surgical period can have an impact. If a woman misses her periods after surgery, it may be because of the stress that the procedure may have caused.

When the menstrual period is temporarily halted, this condition is known as amenorrhea. Exactly how does…

Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction: Which Do You Need?

While both a tummy tuck and liposuction can be excellent body contouring tools, they are not interchangeable. They will both help you achieve a smoother, more toned body – especially when used in conjunction with each other – but their uses differ somewhat. In the simplest terms, a liposuction treatment will only remove pockets of excess fat, while a tummy tuck can target excess skin, pockets of fat, and weakened, sagging muscles in order to create a much smoother, flatter stomach area. Liposuction This procedure can be used to remove stubborn fat from most areas of the body. It is best suited to healthy patients with firm, elastic skin. This is because liposuction cannot remove loose or sagging skin and removing fat from these areas may only worsen the appearance of loose, hanging skin. Because only a limited amount of fat can safely be removed at one time through liposuction,…
