Pandemic of COVID 19 has changed the way the world functions. Life has now been divided into before and during coronavirus outbreak. To protect ourselves from getting infected, we need to practice social distancing. Maintaining 2 to 6 ft of distance has become the norm. Though we are all spending more and more time inside our homes, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t look your very best. Looking your best, makes you feel good about yourself. If you have been considering undergoing Tummy Tuck Toronto, then it is probably a good time to carry out your research and even book an appointment. Here are a few things which determine whether you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck or not:
- Consideration of Health factors:
A tummy tuck is carried out to reshape the waist, smoothen the belly and tighten the separated abdominal muscles. It is not a weight-loss tool. If you are planning to shed a few extra pounds then you need to do so before undergoing the procedure. During the consultation, you will be asked about your medical history and any medication prescriptions that you are on. It is in your own best interest to be completely honest with the surgeon. This procedure involves going under general anaesthesia, so you need to be medically stable for an optimal outcome.
- Having a Stable Weight:
If you’ve lost considerable body fat, then you may have some excess and sagging tummy. In such a case you will be advised to maintain your new weight at least for 6 months or more before you begin to even plan the surgery. This is done to ensure that you are healthy and safe. It also provides a ground for stable results, allowing your tissues a chance to rebound somewhat naturally.
- Preparing for Recovery:
Just like any other procedure, when you decide to undergo a tummy tuck you will be given a detailed list of instructions to follow through the process which will not only ensure your safety but also help in the recovery process. After the procedure, you will be asked to wear a compression garment, which will help to reduce the swelling and give support to the abdomen. You need to avoid substances like alcohol and nicotine as they can give rise to complications. After the procedure, you would need to take sufficient time off from work and physical activities.
- Having Realistic Expectations:
While undergoing any cosmetic procedure, you must have realistic expectations. Perfection is not the aim of the procedure. After undergoing it, you should anticipate a few weeks of tightness, discomfort, abdominal swelling and a surgical scar. The body shape will improve but the surgeon will be limited by your existing anatomy. Some stretch marks may remain and you will still have to remain fit.
