Slimmer Body Contour

Tummy Tuck

Struggling with lax skin and stubborn fat in the midsection is a common problem that men and women face. After pregnancy or significant weight loss, it is not unusual to see loose skin, abdominal protrusion, excess fat and weak abdominal muscles in the midsection since this part of the body tends to exhibit contour changes related to aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. Unfortunately, depending on an individual’s skin elasticity, exercise, a healthy diet, and pharmaceutical products are often ineffective to eliminate the problem, this is where a tummy tuck can help.

Fortunately, there is a surgical, cosmetic solution. At Avenue Plastic Surgery in Toronto and Whitby, Dr. Golger and Dr. Romy regularly perform abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck. This popular procedure can repair weak muscles and trim away the loose skin and fat to give you a slimmer body contour. You’ll be in great hands, as Dr. Golger and Romy are widely considered by their patients to offer the best tummy tuck Toronto residents can rely on.

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

Improving The Abdominal Contours

A tummy tuck surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure for both men and women who are seeking a solution to improve their abdominal contours. It involves surgical techniques that target and remove excess fat and skin, while also restoring weakened or separated abdominal muscles. This creates a flatter, firmer and smoother abdomen. The results achieved through a Toronto tummy tuck will help you reach your aesthetic goals and can help further motivate you to stay in shape through exercise and diet. However, these traditional methods alone are often not sufficient to improve lax, sagging skin, which appears after significant weight loss. Once you have done the hard work of losing weight, or giving birth, you may need a little help to restore the abdominal tissue. With expert assistance from Dr. Golger, Dr. Romy and our enhancement team, the body you have been hoping for with a flatter tummy and slimmer waistline can become reality.

Tummy Tuck Process

What is the process behind a tummy tuck surgery?


At Avenue Plastic Surgery, our Toronto tummy tuck procedure is an outpatient surgery that takes approximately three hours to complete.

Patients are placed under a general anesthetic for a comfortable and pain-free experience. An incision is created on the lower abdomen to separate the skin from underlying fatty tissue and muscles. At this point, separated abdominal muscles are pulled securely together with sutures. Next, loose skin and excess fat are trimmed away. Finally, the remaining skin is pulled smooth to create a restored belly that may better fit clothing, allow for easier physical fitness and improved self esteem.

The goals of a tummy tuck surgery

When we work with a patient to plan a tummy tuck surgery, we have the following goals in mind:

  • Eliminate the muffin top so that you can feel comfortable and confident without worrying about any undesirable bulging
  • Position you to revamp your wardrobe and lifestyle to show off your improved body contour
  • Remove loose, hanging skin that is hiding the results of your weight loss
  • Strengthen weakened abdominal muscles
  • Restore a flatter and firmer abdomen
  • Create a well-defined and cinched waist to promote an hourglass figure
  • Help you regain confidence in your personal body image

What a tummy tuck surgery cannot do?

Although a tummy tuck can help emphasize the results of significant weight loss by removing loose skin, it is not a weight loss solution. Rather, it is a body contouring procedure designed to assist those who have lost weight and want to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. It is important to remember that a tummy tuck surgery cannot protect you from weight fluctuations and the results can be seriously affected by pregnancy and significant weight gain.

Common causes of a loose abdomen

Excessive fat and skin around the abdomen is a common occurrence for the general population and can happen to anyone. In fact, there are a variety of factors that contribute to tummy sagging in all body types.

The most common cause of bulges and abdominal protrusion are aging, pregnancy and significant weight fluctuations within a short time frame. The condition can also be partly hereditary. Regardless of the cause, a Toronto tummy tuck surgery can be beneficial to you and your body.

The cost of a Toronto tummy tuck

A tummy tuck is a highly personalized procedure. The cost of your Toronto tummy tuck will vary based on the type of tummy tuck performed along with other factors. The average cost of a tummy tuck at Avenue Plastic Surgery is around $8,000. Financing options are available that can help make the payment process more manageable for our patients.

I recently had a tummy tuck and breast lift (3 months ago) with Dr.Golger and do not remember the last time I felt so good about myself! I overheard my daughter telling her boyfriend “my mom is like a pig in sh*t since she had her surgery but she keeps wearing my clothes”. Ha! Well if thats the worst she’s saying…I’ll take it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I (obviously) couldn’t have done it without you. That being said…I 100% recommend Dr. Golger!
