What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Medically known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck has become an increasingly popular procedure for individuals who want a more contoured and toned abdomen. The goal of a tummy tuck is to flatten the abdomen with the removal of extra skin and fat. A tummy tuck can also help to tighten the abdominal wall muscles.

This procedure should not be confused with liposuction, although abdominoplasty may also be performed in conjunction with liposuction to achieve optimal results.

Why Get a Tummy Tuck in Mexicali?

Millions of Americans and Canadians head to Mexico every year in search of more affordable healthcare, as well as prescription medication and cosmetic and aesthetic treatments.

Medical Departures can assist you with choosing a reputable clinic and surgeon. We only include facilities on our list once we feel completely comfortable with the research we have performed.

How Long Does a Tummy Tuck Take and What Is the Recovery Like?

During your initial consultation with your surgeon, you will discuss whether a complete abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty is the right solution for your needs. These techniques are outlined below:

  • In a complete tummy tuck, the abdomen will be cut from hip bone to the other. Muscle, tissue, and skin will then be contoured as needed. Your belly button may be moved during the procedure. Drainage tubes may be required for several days following the procedure. The surgery may take between two and four hours.

  • A partial or mini tummy tuck is often a good solution if you have fat deposits located under the navel. There is usually no need to move your belly button in this procedure. Depending on your situation and desires, the surgery will usually take about two hours.

Patients should expect to return to work within four weeks following their tummy tuck. More strenuous activity can typically be resumed within four to six weeks following the procedure. It is important for patients to recognize that this procedure will result in some scarring that will typically diminish within three months to one year. It may be necessary to wear a compression garment for a minimum of four weeks following your tummy tuck procedure.
