Lost loads of weight and looking at getting rid of all that excess skin with a body lift? In Cancun you can save yourself a small fortune compared to prices at home, and relax in the glorious surroundings of this popular holiday location while your body is transformed.
Having undergone the hard part of losing masses of weight, isn’t it time you rewarded yourself and claimed your body back?
Cancun is a favorite Mexican destination, not just in terms of everyday tourists and holidaymakers, but now for medical tourists. Cancun has the development and infrastructure that caters extremely well for its visitors – from first-rate hotels, to the facilities and amenities that make a holiday special, including dining out, shopping, entertaining and, of course, beautiful beaches.
For medical tourists, knowing you are not stuck out the sticks somewhere and have all the everyday services you need at your fingertips is just as important as finding the right surgeon. The surgery is, to some extent, the easy part, but it is the recovery process where the hard work begins, as safety and comfort will be paramount in speeding things along.
Cancun’s facilities in terms of healthcare are generally excellent – and particularly so those providers who offer services primarily to international patients. These providers know exactly what their international clientele are looking for, and make a great effort to ensure their services measure up.
From state-of-the-art facilities, equipped with the newest and latest technologies, to the expertise and qualifications of its medical staff, Cancun is the perfect destination for your body lift surgery if you spend a little time doing some research yourself.
Obviously, the prices are the main reason people initially start looking overseas for cosmetic surgery. This should not be the only criteria and we advocate you do your own checks on the clinics and medical staff you have shortlisted. Unfortunately, there is no sure-fire way of assessing reliability – sure, qualifications, professional memberships and patient reviews are all useful, but they should be looked at together, rather than individually, so you build up an overall picture.
Medical Departures includes these as well as other check, such a legal or criminal records, and onsite visits. We list our findings on our website, with high definition clinic photos, virtual video tours, maps and much more – giving you a selection of information to enable you to make an informed choice.
A body lift consists of several different surgical procedures which together will give you the anticipated outcome. Each procedure is totally unique and at your initial consultation with your surgeon your needs and hopes will be discussed at length. Your surgeon will then tailor the procedure to suit you, but there are a number of body lifts, including upper, lower and mid and any number of variations of what can be included in your procedure.
The type of surgery you have depends on where the excess skin is located on your body, and what your overall cosmetic goals are. As each body lift is different, so exact figures and the way the procedure is carried out may be different for you. The average time a body lift procedure takes to do is usually around 5 hours, under a general anesthetic.
Body lift surgery is a big procedure as it is usually performed across a number of different body areas.
After surgery you will be very stiff, sore and uncomfortable and even with painkillers settling in a comfortable position may be problematical as it will feel like you ache everywhere. Despite this, you should get up and move about as soon as you can. You may not feel like it, but it does help to reduce swelling and reduce the possibility of blood clots.
After a week you should start to feel much better. Move gently and do not overdo things or overstretch. Gradually you will begin to feel like your old self again (or your new self!). It will be 6-8 weeks before you can embark on any vigorous exercise but a number of months before you feel completely healed inside and out.
