This type of surgery is not to be taken lightly. It is a major undertaking, and you must be prepared to take it very easy for a number of weeks – and sometimes months – after your procedure.
A body lift is usually a combination of procedures used to remove loose, sagging skin that has lost elasticity. This may have been caused by one or a number of factors, including pregnancy, massive or fluctuating weight loss, sun damage and even genetics.
The procedure is generally suitable for sagging skin in these areas: the abdomen (including the sides and lower back), thigh, groin and buttocks. The treatment helps to improve cellulite and dimpled skin, but is not suitable for removing fat, where liposuction is the preferred option. Many people have a combination of both. You must be in good health to be considered for a body lift.
Not having to go to work or deal with the everyday things you would have to at home means it could be the ideal cosmetic surgery procedure to have abroad. Mexico’s overwhelming choice of idyllic locations offering plenty of choices – providing you choose a reputable surgeon and clinic.
Mexico has been a popular destination for medical care for decades, if not centuries. Particularly for Americans and Canadians, it offers a convenient choice for care that is much more affordable. Mexico’s lower cost-of-living means that overheads for rent, staff and materials are substantially less, which is why goods and services don’t cost anywhere near as much as they do north of the Border. Savvy north Americans worked this out long ago, and there is a growing stream of patients who travel here for treatments they either can’t afford, or are unwilling to pay the prices for, at home.
Mexico has embraced medical and health tourism, and although the majority of patients are still from The Americas, people from much further afield also visit the world-renowned clinics here. Despite being a so-called ‘third-world’ country, it has medical facilities to rival anywhere in the world, with the number of Joint Commission International (JCI) affiliated clinics located across the county a testament to Mexico’s standing as a provider of superior quality healthcare.
For our part, we are committed to ensuring our patients receive the best standards of treatment and customer services that will exceed their expectations. We are very careful when selecting clinics and doctors to promote on our website, going to great lengths to ensure they meet the high standards we require.
Our selection involves another of processes to establish reliability and quality, including clinic visits and legal/criminal record checks. We also verify doctors’ qualifications and professional memberships, as well as taking in to account online testimonials and real patient reviews. Taken together this gives an overall measurement of quality that is reliable, and, furthermore, our patients can see the results for themselves on our website.
A body lift procedure is tailored to each individual, depending on what particular areas you want your surgeon to concentrate on, so no two operations will be the same, but the surgery will take, on average around 5 hours. At your initial consultation, your expectations will be discussed and your surgeon will let you know what can be achieved.
For the actual surgery, you will be given a general anesthetic and the surgeon will remove the loose skin and underlying tissue in the areas you have agreed upon. As large areas of sagging skin may have to be removed, it is likely that the incisions made will be long. However, most are made in an area where they can be hidden under clothes, for example, bikini bottoms.
Once the excess tissue is removed and wounds stitched, it is likely you drainage tubes inserted to help remove fluid away from your body.
Essentially, you will be having surgery in a number of areas – so you will be stiff, sore and tender for a number of weeks, and the drainage tubes will make it uncomfortable when moving around – and these are usually in place for a couple of weeks.
It is not recommended that you go back to work for a month, and should not be engaging in strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks. It will be a couple of months before you feel completely better and up to 2 years before you have healed fully inside and out.
The average price of body lift surgery is around $10,000 in Mexico, compared to typical prices of around $20,000 in the United States.
