Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

What is a tummy tuck in mexico?

This procedure consists in removing loose or excess skin in the tummy. Usually, this excess of skin is the result of weight fluctuations, pregnancy or age. This surgery is known to improve the appearance of the abdomen by tightening weakened abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat tissue.

Likewise, this operation helps obtain a flatter tummy, more toned midsection and one of the main aspects is that it helps to have a beautifully contoured waistline that is not achievable through diet and exercise.

This operation can help rejuvenate your figure and increase your self-esteem significantly by improving the appearance of your tummy.


What can I expect from a tummy tuck in Mexico?

This surgery will eliminate excess abdominal fat, tighten weak abdominal wall muscles, and remove the saggy skin in the abdomen for a more contoured figure. Your clothes will fir you better causing your self-esteem and self-confidence to grow along with your happiness. The procedure of this operation begins with an initial evaluation where tests and a general review are carried out to ensure that you are a candidate and that you will be able to obtain the desired expectations. In this consultation, the doctors will explain in detail the entire procedure to address any questions that may arise. Depending on several factors such as the conditions of your skin, your BMI (Body Mass Index) and the amount of excess skin, the doctor will explain which is the ideal tummy tuck procedure for you. There are three types for this procedure, a mini tummy tuck, traditional tummy tuck and extend tummy tuck. Each one is specialized so that each type of patient can obtain the desired results.

For this operation, you will need six days. On the first day, the pre-op consultations and tests will be carried out, and you will spend the night in a hotel. On the second day will be the operation with general anesthesia, and then the plastic surgeon will begin to make the incisions in discreet locations to minimize scars and that they can hide in the swimsuit or underwear. Afterward, he will start to remove excess fat tissue and if necessary use liposuction. When finished, the doctor will tighten the underlying abdominal muscles, and also reposition the skin to achieve a contoured waistline, making the abdomen look more defined. Then, he will close the incisions and place bandages and compression garments that will allow better recovery. That night the patient will be in the hospital to keep her/him under observation. On the third day, it will be the discharge, and you will spend the night in the hotel. The fourth day is for rest and recovery at the hotel. On day five the follow-up consultation will take place to determine if on day six you can go home.

Depending on the type of surgery performed, the after-care and recovery time may vary; but most patients can return to work within one to two weeks, using the compression garment to help recovery. Also, they can return to do exercise six weeks after surgery. Although you will begin to notice the results as soon as the swelling goes down, many people see the final results usually six months after the operation because there is no bruising or swelling and the skin is well adhered onto the skin.

Who are good candidates for this surgery?

Candidates of this surgery must have good overall health and have maintained a stable weight for some time to achieve better results. Besides, candidates must suffer from excess skin and stubborn fat around their midsection, which neither exercise nor diets have managed to eliminate. As already mentioned, depending on the type of skin, BMI, and excess of skin will be the type of tummy tuck that the doctor will suggest.

The mini tummy tuck is suggested for patients who have mild to moderate troublesome areas. This is the most straightforward procedure and does not offer dramatic results, and patients will recover faster with less chance of risk.


The traditional tummy tuck is more extensive and helps create a more contoured torso, the incision is more significant because they are made along the abdomen from hip to hip; then your doctor will remove any excess fat with liposuction, tighten weakened abdominal muscles, and re-drape and remove excess skin to create a smoother, more defined appearance.

Finally, the extended tummy tuck is recommended for patients who had a significant amount of weight loss as a result of bariatric surgery or diet, and that provoked high volumes of excess skin across the abdomen and hips. If this excess skin is not removed, it may cause rashes or sores. During this procedure, the incision is made along the abdomen that will extend beyond the hipbone. This length of incisions allows the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat in the abdomen, along with the sides of the torso and lower back.

Brazilian Butt Lift

This operation consists of a butt lift that can enhance and reshape your buttocks, making it fuller, rounder, and more voluptuous. Each one of the butt lifts we do is unique because we want to achieve the cosmetic goals of our patients.

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss the butt lift options available and the benefits of each to help you determine which is better suited for your goals. There are two common augmentation techniques. The first one is fat transfer where the fat obtained from liposuction is transferred from a specific area to the butt. And the second option is to implant, recommended for patients who do not have an adequate amount of excess fat.

Depending on the type of butt lift used the after-care and recovery times will vary. However, the most common symptoms immediately after surgery are some discomfort, but you will be able to walk. When sitting, it is essential to follow instructions carefully. For at least the first six weeks after your surgery, you will be advised to sleep on your stomach to help prevent surgical complications.
