Tummy Tuck in Mexico

A tummy tuck in Mexico can help remove loose or excess skin resulting from weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or age. This popular cosmetic surgery procedure can also tighten weakened abdominal muscles. Also known as an abdominoplasty, this procedure is designed to help patients achieve a flatter, more toned midsection and beautifully contoured waistline that is not achievable through diet and exercise. . Not everyone is a candidate for tummy tuck in Mexico, to be approved for this surgery your BMI needs to be below 29.9. This is because, if there is too much fat under the skin, the result of this surgery would not be satisfactory as the maximum amount of fat that could be removed with liposuction along with a tummy tuck in Mexico is 15 lbs. A successful abdominoplasty will create a more defined midsection, not only improving the way clothes fit but can take years off your appearance and boost your self-confidence. If your BMI is 30 or greater, our surgeons recommend losing the needed weight before any body contouring surgery. If you cannot lose weight after trying many diets and exercise, you may be a good candidate for weight-loss surgery.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

During your initial evaluation, our plastic surgeons will perform a thorough review of your case to ensure you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck and we will carefully explain the procedure in detail. Depending on the condition of your skin, your BMI and volume of excess skin needing removal, our surgeons may recommend the different Tummy Tuck options below:
  • Traditional Tummy Tuck (starting at $4,990 USD): Also known as a full tummy tuck, this procedure addresses most concerns that are found above and below the naval to create a more contoured torso. With this technique, incisions are made along the abdomen from hip to hip, giving your surgeon full access to the underlying tissues and abdominal muscles. He will then remove any excess fat with liposuction, tighten weakened abdominal muscles, and re-drape and remove excess skin to create a smoother, more defined appearance.
  • Mini Tummy Tuck (starting at $3,850 USD): For patients who have mild to moderate troublesome areas below the naval, a mini tummy tuck is recommended. During the procedure, a small incision is made below the naval so your surgeon can remove a small volume of excess fat, while also tightening and removing loose, saggy skin. Although this procedure does not offer as dramatic results as a full tummy tuck, patients can expect to recover faster with reduced risk for complications.
  • Extended Tummy Tuck (starting at $5,250 USD): When patients undergo a significant amount of weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, it is not uncommon to experience high volumes of excess skin across the abdomen and hips. If left unaddressed, this tissue can prevent patients from properly fitting into clothes, as well as cause skin rashes and sores. In such cases, our surgeons may recommend an extended tummy tuck. During this procedure, an incision is made along the abdomen that will extend beyond the hipbone. This length of incisions allows the surgeon to not only remove excess skin and fat in the abdomen, but access tissue along the sides of the torso and lower back known to cause “love handles.”

On the day of the procedure, you will be taken back to a comfortable surgical room where the anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia. Once you are comfortably sedated, your surgeon will make the necessary incisions in discreet locations minimize scarring and ensure they are easily hidden beneath swimsuits and underwear. Once the incisions are made, he will remove any excess fat tissue, using liposuction if necessary. He will then tighten the underlying abdominal muscles and reposition the skin and naval to create a more contoured waistline and more defined abdomen. Once the abdomen has been sculpted to achieve desired results, your surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and apply the necessary bandages and compression garments. The overall length of the procedure will depend on the type of tummy tuck performed, but in most cases will last anywhere from two to five hours.

To determine what type of tummy tuck you are a candidate for, we need to review your case with our surgeons. To do so, we need you to fill out our medical questionnaire and send us photos of your abdomen from the front, back, and sides. This will allow your surgeon to assess your abdominal muscles and how much skin needs to be removed.

Recovering from Tummy Tuck

When you wake up after the anesthesia wears off, you can expect your abdomen to feel very sore. Pain relieving medications will decrease the amount of pain you feel. Your surgeon will prescribe an antibiotic as a preventative for infections. You will also have redness, bruising and swelling. These will subside in the first three weeks after surgery during the healing process.
If your procedure required surgical drains, those will need to be emptied periodically to assist with fluid build-up. Seven to 10 days after your procedure, the doctor will remove your surgical drains and monitor you for any signs of infection. Most patients can expect to return to work within one to two weeks, but you will need to continue wearing your compression garment for several weeks to help minimize swelling and support healing. Typically, you can resume light exercise three to four weeks after surgery and full physical activity in five to six weeks. While you may notice some immediate effects, the full results of your procedure will not be visible until up to six months later. As the swelling and bruising subsides, you can begin to enjoy your newly shaped body.
