Liposuction in Mexico is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery that can help eliminate stubborn fat in targeted areas, such as the arms, hips, thighs, and abdomen that have not responded to diet, exercise, and bariatric surgery. Not everyone is a candidate for liposuction in Mexico, to be approved for this surgery your BMI needs to be between 20 and 29.
This is because, for your wellbeing and to avoid serious complications after surgery, there is a limit to the amount of fat that can be removed with liposuction, which is typically 15 lbs. maximum. Additionally, your skin elasticity must also be in good condition to achieve good results.
When the skin loses elasticity, it can no longer contract itself after eliminating the fat underneath and the result would be flaccid and loose skin after liposuction in Mexico. If you have had multiple pregnancies and/or have stretch marks in your abdomen, it is likely that your skin has lost elasticity and you may be better suited for a Tummy Tuck
