Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
It's natural for the skin and muscles of your abdomen to weaken and become looser over time, paritcularly with weight change, pregnancy, or advancing age. An abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) procedure may be right for you if you're interested in having more of an hourglass figure, trimming away any of the saggy skin that has been left behind after losing a lot of weight, or restoring the firmer, flatter stomach you may have had before pregnancy. Aside from the obvious benefits to your appearance, you may also experience a drastic increase in self confidence, as is the case for many of our patients.
Don't waste time thinking about how great you could look with a firmer stomach. Call 905-849-4282 now to book your private medical consultation with Dr. Stephen Brown.

Dr. Brown has over 25 years of experience performing the tummy tuck procedure and because of his calm and courteous demeanour, he has garnered an outstanding professional reputation.
Your improved stomach will let you wear better fitting clothes that flatter your new curves, no longer forcing you to hide your shape in loose outfits or worry about pants that expose an embarrassing "muffin top" bulge.
If you have been pregnant or experienced significant fluctuations in your weight the process described above happens even faster. Women who have carried multiple children are also prone to a condition known as diastasis recti, wherein the left and right abdominal muscles separate along their midline. Weak or damaged stomach muscles will cause your tummy to bulge, your silhouette to appear abnormal, and, in some cases, can even lead to the development of hernias.
Dr. Brown can help you to avoid these problems with an abdominoplasty procedure that is customized to meet your exact body type and personal goals. The procedure works by tightening your stomach muscles and reinforcing the structure of the abdominal wall. This is important since the appearance of your stomach is dictated, in large part, by the strength of this wall. The structure consists of layers of fat, muscle, connective tissue, and fascia that can weaken and accumulate excess fat with time. Once this happens your stomach will become flabby, your posture will suffer, and your abdominal muscles will weaken.
While patients often drop down by one or two dress sizes after treatment, abdominoplasty is not meant to be a shortcut to weight loss. If you are currently at a normal or near normal weight and simply wish to enjoy a stronger, flatter stomach that fits with your current size and shape the procedure can lead to fantastic results.
