How Easy is Having a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck can be performed comfortably and safely in the privacy of our Mississauga cosmetic clinic. You will be asleep for the entire procedure. You wake in the care of a kindly and expert nurse who assists you to prepare to go home. You will rest at home where we encourage you to get up and walk frequently to keep your circulation active.
With a tummy tuck you need at least two weeks recovery and as long as six weeks for heavier work and exercise. You can shower the following day, if you like. We will provide dressings and show you a simple way to use them. Special effort is made to keep the incision within the area hidden by normal clothing and swim wear. A typical McLean Clinic tummy tuck does not require tubes or drains. We use dissolving stitches so that they don’t have to be removed. We want your recovery to be as smooth and simple as possible!
Is There Any Downside to a Tummy Tuck?

If you plan to have a baby in the future, you may want to delay your tuck so that your new tummy is not stretched all over again!
What Does A Tummy Tuck Cost?
The cost of a tummy tuck varies according to what you and Dr. McLean determine is required to give you the look you want with the best results. Your questions and concerns will be addressed personally by Dr. McLean during an in-depth consultation.
How Can I Make My Tummy Tuck Even Better?
Those who have tummy tucks are often candidates for a full ‘Mommy Makeover" which combines breast lift or enhancement with the tuck. Some patients are also candidates for an arm lift or for liposuction of areas such as the thighs. When your body looks better, you sometimes also want facial improvements that you can get through medical grade skin care, laser treatments or with fillers. The McLean Clinic is a “one-stop” facility that can satisfy many different needs.
