Your Abdominoplasty at Studio Plastic Surgery

At Studio Plastic Surgery, our approach to abdominoplasty is unique. The surgery is performed by Dr. Kunaal Jindal, who specializes in body sculpting procedures. Instead of focusing only on eliminating unwanted fat and excess skin, as is more commonly done, Dr. Jindal also contours the abdominal region to enhance and define natural contours.

Gone are the days when a standard operation was an acceptable outcome. In our office, we use liposculpting to accentuate highlights and place shadows to control how the light reflects off the body,  creating depth, which results in unparalleled outcomes. Dr. Jindal also performs his signature triple-level muscle repair on every tummy tuck in Toronto to further support and reconstruct the core.

Our passion is to deliver results that go well beyond your expectations of the accepted standards so you can enjoy all the enhanced self-confidence that comes with a more defined figure.

Who Is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck in Toronto?

While it’s important to note that abdominoplasty is not intended as a weight loss solution, it can help achieve a flatter, more toned, and contoured abdominal appearance. During your consultation, we will help you determine whether or not an abdominoplasty in Toronto is the ideal procedure for you. Patients in good health may be good candidates for this surgery if they are experiencing any of the following:

  • Your abdominal appearance was impacted as a result of pregnancy or weight loss.
  • You are suffering from diastasis recti (a separation of the abdominal muscles) leading to a “bloated” appearance.
  • You have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area
  • You have reached a plateau with your healthy diet and exercise lifestyle and are looking for support to go the extra mile.

Your Initial Consultation

At Studio Plastic Surgery, we take the time to understand individual concerns and design a treatment plan to achieve ideal results. We ensure you have all of your questions answered, including what to expect on the day of your procedure, the recovery process, and what techniques will be used. We work with you to help you feel prepared, confident and empowered about this important step in achieving your aesthetic goals. Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy peace of mind as you look forward to your end results.

What Are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty is a popular surgery because of the wide range of positive effects patients enjoy, including surgically-strengthened abdominal muscles, more contoured lines, and a more ideal shape.

Once your final results are visible, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • The freedom to show off your abdomen
  • A more toned, flat appearance
  • A lack of excess skin
  • Improved comfort
  • A better fit in the clothing of your choice

Is Liposuction Included in a Tummy Tuck?

We treat the entire abdominal and flank area as a single unit, and therefore, liposuction and liposculpting are included with every abdominoplasty.  Dr Jindal’s signature lipo abdominoplasty allows him to take your results to the next level so you can feel comfortable and proud of your new body.

Your Abdominoplasty Options

There are numerous options when it comes to abdominoplasty and abdominal contouring.   A thorough consultation and attentive assessment are required to determine which procedure would be most suitable to achieve optimal results.

Full Tummy Tuck

Although there are many variations, full abdominoplasty is the most common operation we perform as it has the most dramatic transformative effect. In this operation, the incision stretches across the lower abdomen and is hidden in the bikini line. A second hidden incision is placed around the umbilicus, or belly button, to reposition the native belly button after excess skin removal. The muscles are repaired, and liposculpting is performed on the abdomen and flanks.  The results? A flatter stomach, stronger core, and slimmer waistline

Mini Tummy Tuck

The mini abdominoplasty is ideal for patients who require more conservative changes, with fatty deposits and other issues that are limited below the navel. This is appropriate in patients with mild excess skin in the lower abdomen and a bulge that is below the navel only.  This shorter scar technique also avoids a scar around the belly button.

Floating Abdominoplasty or FAB

The floating abdominoplasty, or FAB, is a technique that involves detaching (or “floating”) the belly button. This is indicated in a patient with very little excess skin but rather a diastasis rectae bulge that extends above and below the belly button. During this procedure, we detach the belly button to repair the musculature and re-attach it in a lower position. This also enables us to avoid any incision around the belly button.


The fleur-de-lis is an abdominoplasty that addresses laxity in both the vertical and horizontal directions.  This is sometimes necessary after massive weight loss when a full abdominoplasty would be insufficient to correct the skin excess in multiple vectors.  The Fleur-de-lis has both a horizontal scar along the bikini line as well as a vertical midline scar.

Circumferential Body Lift

In the setting of massive weight loss, some patients experience laxity not only in the abdomen but also in the lower back with sagging of the buttocks.  In this case, a circumferential body lift would be performed to correct the vertical laxity 360 degrees around the body.  This results in a low abdominal scar that extends across the lower back as well.  This has the added benefit of a buttock lift.

Tummy Tuck FAQ

Will a tummy tuck help me lose weight?

What type of anesthesia is used for a tummy tuck?

Can I combine a tummy tuck with other procedures?

Will a tummy tuck affect future pregnancies?

Will a tummy tuck remove stretch marks?

Will a tummy tuck help me lose weight?

While a tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, it is not a weight loss procedure. It is best suited for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but have stubborn areas of fat and loose skin that cannot be addressed through diet and exercise alone.

What type of anesthesia is used for a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep and unaware during the procedure. Your anesthesia provider will discuss the options and risks with you prior to surgery.

Can I combine a tummy tuck with other procedures?

Absolutely! Tummy tuck surgery can often be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation or lift, or other body contouring procedures to address multiple concerns simultaneously. This combination of procedures is commonly referred to as a mommy makeover. Combining procedures in this way can offer more comprehensive results while potentially reducing overall recovery time and costs.

Will a tummy tuck affect future pregnancies?

While it is possible to become pregnant after a tummy tuck, the procedure can alter the abdominal muscles and skin, which may be affected by future pregnancies. It's generally recommended to postpone a tummy tuck until after you have completed your family, as additional pregnancies may compromise the results of the surgery. However, each case is unique, and it's essential to discuss your plans and concerns with your surgeon during the consultation.

Will a tummy tuck remove stretch marks?

While a tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, it may not completely eliminate stretch marks. However, stretch marks located on the lower abdomen that are within the excision area of the surgery may be removed along with the excess skin. Stretch marks outside the excision area may be improved in appearance but may still be visible after surgery.
