Subtle Appearance


The "Musts" you should know…In a nutshell!

First things first… What is an abdominoplasty?

After a pregnancy, weight loss or simply with aging, the elasticity of your skin diminishes and you may be left with sagging skin in your abdominal region.

The tummy tuck or tummy lift 'abdominoplasty' is a cosmetic surgery of the sagging abdomen. It suctions the excess fat, tightens the abdominal muscles with stitches and then removes the excess skin.

Therefore, the abdominoplasty, or plastic surgery of the abdomen, is the combination of three actions that allow the surgeon to improve the appearance of the abdominal region: the liposuction, the tightening of the muscles and the excision of the extra abdominal skin.

What are the criteria for a successful abdominoplasty?

The top priority of Dr. Nabil Fanous is a subtle look.

According to him, a successful result for a tummy lift is a nicer looking stomach lent, that does not look exaggerated.

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 surgical technique used by Dr Fanous?

Dr Fanous uses a technique of mini-incision which takes into account the analysis of the mobility of tissues under the skin. During a surgery, dissections are accompanied by the use of threads to pull and move the tissues.

If necessary, Dr. Fanous begins by performing a liposuction using the Tumescent technique. For the tummy tuck, Dr. Fanous makes an incision in the lower border of the abdomen, at the edge of the pubic hair. This scar will be better hidden than if it was placed higher on the abdomen.

Dr. Fanous then uses threads to tighten the abdominal muscles. After that, he excises the hanging skin in order to correct the sagging skin problem.

Then, he creates a new opening for the navel (umbilicus) because the skin around the natural navel is now pulled down.

Finally, he closes the incisions carefully so that your scars are discreet.
